Phra Racha Manu was following the Tamnan history the leader of the elephant
caretakers. He apparently was an excellent trainer in getting soldiers accustomed with elephants trained for war. The Mon leader trained especially an elephant named Phlay (3) Phukhao Thong (Golden Mount) for Prince Naresuan. The animal became Naresuan's Royal war elephant and he gave it the name Chao Phraya Chayanuprab (Lord Triumphator). This elephant was a bull and "six sok, one khuep and two niu tall (4)" tall, about 3.3 meters. It was on this animal that King Naresuan in 1592 defeated the Crown Prince of Burma, Min Chit Swa, at Nong Sa Rai (Don Chedi). In the hustle after the killing of the Burmese prince, the Mahout Nai Mahanuphap of King Naresuan wasfired at and killed (5). After this battle Naresuan's elephant was called Chao Phraya Prab Hongsawadi or "Lord who subdued Hongsawadi".
