Michael III, emperor.

§Southeast Asia

§Khmer empire (Modern Cambodia)

Jayavarman III succeeds his father Jayavarman II as ruler of the Khmer Empire. Very little is known about Jayavarman II's son and successor, Jayavarman III the second ruler of Angkor. An inscription from Prasat Sak describes: "When he failed to capture a wild elephant while hunting, a divinity promised that he would secure the animal if he built a sanctuary." There are some temples dated to his reign though none said that they belonged to him. He may have begun a small construction project which was overshadowed by his more ambitious successor and builder, Indravarman I. He died in 877 CE probably from chasing a wild elephant.
