The Kingdom of Cambodia (Khmer: ព្រះរាជាណាចក្រកម្ពុជា, French: Royaume du Cambodge), also known as the First Kingdom of Cambodia (Khmer: ព្រះរាជាណាចក្រកម្ពុជាទី ១)[2] and the Sangkum Period[3] (Khmer: របបសង្គមរាស្ត្រនិយម shortened from Sangkum Reastr Niyum meaning "popular socialist community"; French: Communauté socialiste populaire), referred to Norodom Sihanouk's first administration of Cambodia from 1953 to 1970, an especially significant time in the country's history. Sihanouk continues to be one of the most controversial figures in Southeast Asia's turbulent and often tragic postwar history. From 1955 until 1970, Sihanouk's Sangkum was the sole legal party in Cambodia.[4]
