Bao-Dai, the last emperor of Vietnam

Bao-Dai was born in 1913. He is both the last sovereign of the great Nguyen Phuc  dynasty, and the last emperor of Vietnam. He was named emperor at the age of 13 in 1926 after the death of his father.

He studied in France from 1922 to 1925 and then again from 1926 to 1932.

His tutor was Mr Jean Eugene Charles, senior resident of Annam, (Hué province in Vietnam) and the Emperor’s place of residence. Jean Eugene Charles originally came from Linxe, and here we can see him posing with the young emperor Bao-Dai in front of the town-hall at Linxe.


During his reign he try to modernise Vietnam. He would eventually abdicate in 1945. In 1989 he wrote in his memoirs entitled “The dragon of Annam” :

Bao-Dai as a child at Château Belle Epoque, Linxe (40)


« Independence for the homeland, happiness for the people. For these 8 words and for 80 years, so many of our brothers and sisters have sacrificed their lives in the jungles the forests and the prisons, that compared to the sacrifices of these millions of heroes and heroines, my abdication is just a small detail. »


He died in Paris in 1997 after a 43 year exile, and was buried in Paris, at the Passy cemetery.

Of course, we have no proof that Bao Dai came to Château Belle Epoque but we can imagine that he did, and with this room we keep a trace of his time at Linxe.
