Muhammad VIII Al-Amin
Birth: Sep. 4, 1881
Death: Sep. 30, 1962

Tunisian Monarch. Known as "Lamine Bey", he served as the Bey of Tunisia from May 15, 1943, to March 20, 1956, and as the King of Tunisia from March 20, 1956, until he was deposed on July 25, 1957, by the Tunisian Constituent Assembly. He became Bey after the Free French Forces deposed his cousin Muhammad on the accusation that he was a collaborator with the pro-Nazi wartime French Vichy government. After he was deposed the former King later moved into semi-exile at a government watched residence in La Manouba, Tunisia, but he was allowed to keep his royal throne rights. In 1962, Muhammad died at the age of 81. (bio by: K)
