During his reign, Blas Ruiz and Diogo Veloso came to Cambodia, both were trusted by the king and married Cambodian princesses.[1]

Two inscriptions in Angkor Wat indicated that some temples were restorated with the help of the royal family in 1577–1578. Satha I abdicated in favor of his son Chey Chettha I in 1584.[2]

Siamese had recovered their capital from the Burmese, and started to take revenge on Cambodia. In 1594, the Cambodian capital Lovek was under siege.[3] Ruiz and Veloso were sent to Manila for assistance. Before they returned, the capital was sacked by Siamese. Satha was forced to flee and seek refuge in Lan Xang.[4] He later died in Vientiane.[citation needed]
