Lon Nol was a Cambodian politician who served as the Prime Minister of Cambodia twice and was the self-proclaimed President of Khmer Republic. A politician as well as a soldier, he overthrew Prince Norodom Sihanouk and ruled for a few years until his reign came to an end when the Khmer Rouge communists overpowered his army. Born and raised in Cambodia, he joined the French colonial service as a magistrate after completing his secondary school education. He went to serve as a provincial governor and head of the national police. In 1952, he joined the army and carried out military operations against the Viet Min. Later, he became the Cambodian army chief of staff and also served as commander in chief under the country’s leader, Prince Norodom Sihanouk. Subsequently he held a variety of ministerial offices under Sihanouk regime, including that of Minister of Defense, as well as the Prime Minister of Cambodia, a post which he held twice in his career. In 1970, he was one of the chief architects who staged the coup which ousted Sihanouk from power and became the most prominent leader in the new government. Gradually, he assumed total authority over Cambodia and declared himself as the President of Khmer Republic. In the meantime, the communist Khmer Rouge movement gained momentum in the countryside, and with their insurgents on the verge of taking over Cambodia, he fled the country and settled in the United States where he remained until his death.
