Duc Duc Tomb

Emperor Duc Duc’s burial ground is a small complex that also includes the graves of Emperors Thanh Thai and Duy Tan. Interestingly, Duc Duc was imprisoned by the court for being a Francophile and he died after reigning only three days. The tomb site is modest but possesses enigmatic charm.
With similar names it is easy to confuse Duc Duc with his predecessor on the Imperial Throne, To Duc. In fact Duc Duc was the adopted son of Emperor To Duc, who opposed contact with foreigners. On the other hand, Duc Duc, was pro-French which led to his speedy demise. 
Interestingly, after the young emperor’s death his remains were unceremoniously disposed of and later a beggar died in the same place. Duc Duc’s son, Thanh Thai, wanted to bury his father with the honours due to an emperor but when Duc Duc’s burial place was eventually located,  two sets of bones were found. The problem of which bones belonged to whom was easily solved: today the remains of both the emperor and the beggar share the same resting place.
