Kumarnthong are child spirits and as such are all children. All Kumarnthong are male. However some Kumarn are female and are known in Thai as Golden Kumaree, Kumaree or Kumareethong
GuMan Thong is a Thai amulet created in the form of a lovely young child, but it's really a ghost !! It's was first created in the early of Ayuthaya era or some 500 years ago during Khun Paen's life period
The origins of the first story relating to Kumarnthong were from a 19th century work of literature "Khun Chang Khun Pean" . Khun Pean was a soldier, 400 years previous, a time when supernatural forces played an important part of traditional warfare. Khun Pean had wanted a protective spirit to watch over him in battle. To this end he cut the unborn foetus of his son from his dead wife's womb and took it to a temple to perform an occult rite in which he created the first recorded Kumarnthong.
