History of Roi Et
The recorded history of Muang Roi Et began during the late Ayutthaya period, when a king of Laos and his people migrated from Champasak City to settle down in the area which is currently Suwannaphum. Later, during the reign of King Taksin of Thon Buri, Roi Et was moved to its present site.
Suwannaphum is still at its original location.
