Former First Lady of South Vietnam dies in Rome

APRIL 27, ROME – Madame Ngo Dinh Nhu, the outspoken beauty who served as South Vietnam’s unofficial first lady early on in the Vietnam War and earned the nickname “Dragon Lady” for her harsh criticism of protesting Buddhist monks and communist sympathizers, has died at age 86, a Rome funeral home said Wednesday.

This happened in April, so how did I not know about the Dragon Lady’s death?

I’m losing my touch, anyway, if you don’t know who the Dragon Lady is, she is interesting to read up on if you’re going to study the Vietnam War.
