Nguyễn Phúc Luân

Nguyễn Phúc Luân or Nguyễn Phúc Côn (, 1733–1765) was a son of lord Nguyễn Phúc Khoát and father of Nguyễn Phúc Ánh (future emperor Gia Long of Vietnam).

LifeEdit

Luan was the second son of lord Nguyễn Phúc Khoát and he was the prince who would succeed the throne. After lord Khoat's death, an overpowered mandarin named Trương Phúc Loan changed lord Khoat's will to make Luan's younger brother Nguyễn Phúc Thuần to succeed the throne. Later, Trương Phúc Loan imprisoned Luan until his death in 1765.

Luan was buried at Cơ Thánh Tomb, located at Cư Chánh, Hưng Thuỷ, Thừa Thiên Huế. Later, his son Nguyễn Phúc Ánh posthumously gave him the title Nhân Minh Cẩn Hậu Khoan Dụ Ôn Hòa Hiếu Khang Hoàng Đế (仁明謹厚寬裕溫和孝康皇帝).
