At the age of ten, Nguyen Thanh Thai became the tenth Nguyen emperor after being taken from prison, along with his mother, by the a French. Thanh Thai was the first Vietnamese monarch to cut his hair in the French style and learn to drive a car. He encouraged French-style education, but maintained bitter feelings over their control of his country. He also supported numerous building projects and took an interest in the everyday lives of his subjects, holding "Town Hall meetings" where the Emperor sat on a mat with his subjects in a circle around him, discussing the issues of the day. When he realized his palace had been thoroughly infiltrated with French spies, he feigned insanity to escape constant scrutiny. Seen as a harmless lunatic, Thanh Thai was able to work for Vietnamese autonomy while waiting for the right time to throw off colonial rule. He was on his way to join a resistance movement in China when he was arrested by the French who declared him insane and exiled him to Halong Island in 1916. In 1945, he was allowed to return home but was kept under house arrest in Vung Tau. Thanh Thai died in Saigon on 24 March 1954.Thanh_Thai
