Who was Aung San?

Bogyoke Aung San; 13 February 1915 – 19 July 1947 was a Burmese revolutionary, nationalist, founder of the modern Burmese army, and considered to be the Father of modern-day Burma.

He was responsible for bringing Burma's independence from British colonial rule in Burma, but was assassinated six months before independence. He is recognized as the leading architect of independence, and the founder of the Union of Burma. Affectionately known as "Bogyoke", Aung San is still widely admired by the Burmese people, and his name is still invoked in Burmese politics to this day.

Aung San had a daughter, Aung San Suu Kyi, who is a Burmese politician and the recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize.
