The Dancing King

Here’s a fun one for you.

  • Burmese King Kung Sondak (1861-1925) was notoriously afraid of demons, so much so that he had his servants dance in his bedchambers whilst he slept. The joyous (put presumably quiet) dancing was to drive away the demons, who, it was believed, fed on fear and misery.

Cheers, David.
