Item description for Voyage to Siam Performed by Six Jesuits... (Itineraria Asiatica) by Guy Tachard...

King Narai had since the early 1670's attempted to establish relations with France, partly as a counterweight to English and Dutch influence in and around Siam, partly as a means to facilitate his control over the burgeoning coastal trade. In 1680, the first Siamese Embassy to Versailles was shipwrecked, and a second envoy left in 1684 reaching France safely. In late 1685 the Siamese envoys returned to Ayuthia, accompanied by a well appointed French Mission lead by Chevalier Alexandre de Chaumont and counting among its members the Jesuit Guy Tachard, "the boudoir Abb?" de Choisy and Father Vachet of the French Overseas Mission Society. While King Narai was interesetd in expanding political and commercial relations, de Chaumont singlemindedly pursued the conversion of the King to the Catholic faith, ignoring advice from Abb de Choisy to show discretion and restraint. The mission was, not unexpectedly, a failure. Three members of the mission published their version of the events: Chaumont, Choisy and Tachard
