** Tuptim was real, but the incident depicted in Anna's ''Romance of the Harem'', the Margaret Langdon book, and all three films, did not happen. Anna admitted much later that she'd written a fantasy based on "a few bits of palace gossip". In fact, Princess Vudhichalerm Vudhijaya, the sister of the late King Bhumibol, is a descendant of the real Tuptim.

** Needless to say, that whole sequence of events never happened at all and there was no General Alak, not even in Anna's books. Mongkut did have [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinklao a brother]], who was [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Front_Palace Second King]] (kind of a viceroy, with equal royal honors) and a NiceGuy. The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burmese%E2%80%93Siamese_War_(1849%E2%80%9355) Burmese-Siamese War]] was for real and happened at this time.

*CompleteMonster: [[EvilChancellor General Alak]] causes havoc in Siam's countryside by leading Burmese troops to brutally murder civilians. When King Mongkut sends his brother with Alak to investigate the crimes, Alak fatally poisons everyone with him and escapes to rouse an army from Burma. In his desire to become king, Alak knows Mongkut has to die, but his true cruelty extends even further: Alak intends to [[WouldHurtAChild kill all of King Mongkut's young children]], who number in the dozens, so there are no obstacles to the throne. When Mongkut ends up besting Alak, he decides to spare his treacherous former adviser so Alak will know the shame of his betrayal forever. Alak simply attempts to shoot Mongkut InTheBack, blinded by hatred, greed and rage.
