This period is also considered to be the "golden era" of Viet Nam.
The nation was divided in half in 1600 after numerous civil wars.
The next 100 or so years saw much conflict between King Trieu Da and the Han emperors of China. C., Nam Viet was conquered and incorporated into the Chinese empire. They successfully drove out the Chinese and the nation lived free from Chinese rule until three years later when Viet Nam was reconquered.
Thus began the Vietnamese people's tradition of fighting to remain free and independent. This next period of Chinese domination lasted until 539, when a Vietnamese scholar, Ly Bon again drove out the Chinese rulers, only to have Viet Nam reinvaded a few years later.
Princess Au Co took 50 of the sons with her back into the mountains while King Lac Long Quan took the other 50 sons and ruled over the lowlands. C., his eldest son, Hung Vuong established the Hung dynasty, and he is regarded as the real founder of the Vietnamese nation and of the first Vietnamese dynasty.
Despite continuing revolts, the nation was again unified.
The capital was moved to Hue and gained its current imperial splendor.
This is also when the political influence of French missionaries became more prominent.
However, the imposition of Chinese culture, customs, language, political institutions, and at times cruel oppression and exploitation of the nation ultimately crystallized the Vietnamese people's fierce desire to be free and independent, at all costs.
This desire was finally realized in 939, as the Tang dynasty in China was falling into decline.
For the next 19 centuries, the people of Viet Nam continually struggled against the Chinese for their independence. The Vietnamese people would continue to resist the rule of China (which renamed the nation An Nam).
