Lilit Pra Lor is a very old tragedy. Thai literature was well praised by the literary class in the reign of King Rama VI. At that time many Thai intellectuals agreed that Pra Lor was one of the most fascinating poems it was said that all 600 verses were rhymed so beautifully beyond anything seen before Even Thai dance artists used poetry to create stage performances. And many painters created works based on it.
The author is unknown, but a study revealed that this literature was written in the early Krung Sri Ayutthaya dynasty period (the reign of King Narai Maharaj). At that time, the Ayutthaya empire was friendly with European countries especially France. Many ambassadors and diplomats were sent to Europe. The poem even refers to Western flintlock weapons and was written specifically for the entertainment of the king and the royal family.
The first part of this story describes the physical appearance of Prince Pra Lor, the married prince who had inherited the throne from his father, the king of the Man Suang Empire. The rumor was spread to many empires including Srong, the adversary empire. The king of Srong has two young and beautiful princesses, Pra Puen and Pra Paeng.
Both princesses were frustrated and upset because they would like Pra Lor to be a lover although he was married. With the help of their female servants, Nang Ruen and Nang Roi, both princesses went to ask Phu Chao Saming Prai, the dark magician, to cast magic spells for them to lure Pra Lor and his two male servants out of the palace. Then Nang Ruen and Nang Roi brought Pra Lor to the royal residence of the princesses secretly. Moreover, both Nang Ruen and Nang Roi also have lovers (the servants of Pra Lor).
