Nguyễn Thái Học, founder and leader of the VNQDD.
Nguyễn Thái Học (Hán tự: 阮太學; 1902 – 1930) was a Vietnamese revolutionary who was the founding leader of the Việt Nam Quốc Dân Đảng, the Vietnamese Nationalist Party. He was captured and executed by the French colonial authorities after the failure of the Yen Bai mutiny.
