Rwagasore, the eldest son of King Mwambutsa IV, was educated in Belgium. He was leader of the Union of National Progress (UPRONA) political party. A radical intellectual Tutsi, he married a Hutu woman and became a symbol of national unity. When the UPRONA party won the election of 1961, before the country became independent, the prince was expected to lead the government. People hoped that he would return the country to stability. Unfortunately, he was assassinated shortly after the election.
