There are many pictures around town of the current king, like this wall poster. He's King Rama IX, and he's reigned the longest of any of the Chakri kings, 54 years. He's also a graduate of Harvard, a composer and a jazz musician (plays the sax), and he's greatly beloved. You don't hear Thais refer to him as "the king" but as "my king.".
