The country was governed as a constitutional monarchy that ruled Laos beginning with its independence on 9 November 1953.

It survived until December 1975, when its last king, Sisavang Vatthana, surrendered the throne to the Pathet Lao, who abolished the monarchy in favour of a Marxist–Leninist state called the Lao People's Democratic Republic, which has controlled Laos ever since.

The Lao People's Democratic Republic was established with Prince Souphanouvong as President.
