Nguyen Hue

 

(Quang Trung). Born 1752 in central Vietnam; died 1792 in Thang Long (present-day Hanoi). One of the three brothers who led the Tay Son Uprising in Vietnam (1771–1802).

In 1788, Nguyen Hue became the ruler of northern Vietnam as Emperor Quang Trung. In early 1789 he defeated both the army of the Vietnamese Le dynasty and the troops of the Manchurian Ch’ing dynasty that had invaded Vietnam. Basing his rule on the army, Nguyen Hue restored the feudal system, which gradually lost him the support of the peasantry. After the death of Nguyen Hue, strife among the Tay Son leaders facilitated the suppression of the uprising by the southern feudal lords under Nguyen Anh (Gia Long), who were supported by French merchants and missionaries.
