Picture of Bao Dai’s Tomb

My friend, the master linguist Bob Headley, sent via Facebook, a photograph of the tomb of Bao Dai in Paris. You can see it at https://www.facebook.com/authorTomGlenn/posts/1873175346253617?comment_id=1873334326237719

I notice that the inscription on the headstone uses a different Vietnamese word for king or emperor than I cited. The term here is Hoang De, a more ancient and formal word than voung.
