Hue Imperial Palace



A throne for a unified Vietnam
A walled citadel
A ringing moat
Faced towards the Huong River (Perfume River)
Courtyards, gardens, pavilions and palaces
The seat of power
Until the French invaded

A most lucrative colonial possession
Mission civilisatrice
Profit and economic exploitation
