    (October 22, 1913-July 30, 1997)
    Born in Hue, Viet Nam
    Birth name was Nguyen Phuc Vinh Thuy
    Emperor (1926-1945) and head of state (1949-55) of Vietnam
    Died in exile in France
    He was a puppet of the French, the Japanese and the French again.
    Since he exercised little real power, he spent much of his reign on week-long hunting expeditions.
    His life in exile centered around golf, bridge and women.
    His name, taken upon his coronation, translates as 'keeper of greatness.'
    Despite his limited power, he tried to reform the judicial and education systems.
    In one of his rare public statements from exile he urged reconciliation in Vietnam, saying 'The time has come to put an end to the fratricidal war and to recover at last peace and accord.' (1972)
