Historical background

Most Cambodians consider themselves to be Khmers, descendants of the Angkor Empire that extended over much of Southeast Asia and reached its zenith between the 10th and 13th centuries.

Attacks by the Thai and Cham (from present-day Vietnam) weakened the empire, ushering in a long period of decline.

The king placed the country under French protection in 1863 and it became part of French Indochina in 1887.
