Indonesian politician exiled from Java by the Dutch authorities in 1933. In 1942 he returned to the country and collaborated with the Japanese occupation force in power. Three years later he proclaimed Indonesia an independent nation, fighting against his old nemesis, the Dutch. On 12/27/1949 the Netherlands ceded sovereignty of Indonesia after a four year war; Sukarno was made head of state.
In 1960 he suspended the Indonesian Parliament; three years later he was named President of the nation for life. In 1965 he lost his position, a testament to the instability of the nation at the time.
Sukarno died on 6/21/1970, Djakarta, Indonesia.
