From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nguyễn Phúc Luân or Nguyễn Phúc Côn (17331765) was a son of lord Nguyen Phuc Khoat and father of Nguyen Phuc Anh (future emperor Gia Long of Vietnam).


Luan was the second son of lord Nguyen Phuc Khoat and he was the prince who would succeed the throne. After lord Khoat's death, an overpowered mandarin named Truong Phuc Loan changed lord Khoat's will to make Luan's younger brother Nguyen Phuc Thuan to succeed the throne. Later, Truong Phuc 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 Nguyen Phuc Anh posthumously gave him the title Nhân Minh Cẩn Hậu Khoan Dụ Ôn Hòa Hiếu Khang Hoàng Đế.
