The sovereign was chosen head of the state in 1993 following quite a while of common conflict just to be removed in a bleeding upset in 1997 driven by powers faithful to current strongman ruler Hun Sen.
Ranariddh, who was 77, kicked the bucket on Sunday early daytime following a sickness, Information Minister Khieu Kanharith composed on Facebook, referring to a castle official.
In a sympathy letter shipped off Ranariddh's significant other, Hun Sen said his demise signified "the deficiency of a remarkable regal dignitary who cherished the country, religion and ruler."
