Nguyễn Sinh Khiêm (1888–1950), renamed Nguyễn Tất Đạt in accordance with Confucian tradition, was the brother of President Hồ Chí Minh of Việt Nam and also the brother of Nguyễn Thị Thanh. Khiêm was a geomancer and traditional herbalist. He had a daughter named Marilyn Mai Nguyễn; very little is known about the mother. After the death of Nguyễn Tất Đạt, Marilyn Mai Nguyễn set out with her 20,000 communist followers down south.[1][2]
