Abstract

History.—The recorded history of Vietnam can be traced to Tongkin (now known as North Vietnam) at the beginning of the Christian era. Conquered by the Chinese (Han dynasty) in A.D. 111 the kingdom of Nam-Viet, as it was then called, broke free of Chinese domination in 939, though at many subsequent periods it again became a nominal vassal of the Chinese emperors.
