Tjoet Nja' Dhien

Profile

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Tjoet Nja' Dhien
Born Lampadang, 1850; Died Sumedang, 6 November, 1908.

Dhien was a leader of the Acehnese guerrilla forces during the Aceh War. Following the death of her husband Teuku Umar, she led guerrilla actions against the Dutch for 25 years. She was betrayed by one of her troops, Pang Laot, who told the Dutch the location of her headquarters in Beutong Le Sageu. The Dutch assaulted, catching Dhien and her troops by surprise. Despite desperately fighting back, Dhien was captured, although her daughter Cut Gambang escaped and continued the resistance.

Dhien was brought to Banda Aceh but due to the fear of her mobilizing the people, she was exiled to Sumedang, West Java.
