In parallel with preservating, accepting and developing the national culture, struggles against the domination of Chinese feudal dynasties took place continuosly and enduringly, starting with the uprisings by the Two Ladies Trung against the Eastern Han dynasty in 40-43 AD, then the uprising by Lady Trieu against the Ngo dynasty in 248 AD. In 544 AD, after the victory against the Liang dynasty, Ly Bi came into throne and named Thien Duc. He named the country Van Xuan and set the capital in Long Bien. After that, uprisings continued to take place nonstop, including the uprising led by Mai Thuc Loan in 714 AD, Phung Hung in 766 AD, Khuc Thua Du in 905 AD, and especially NgoQuyen’s battle victory in the Bac Dang river against the Southern Han Chinese dynasty. The Bach Dang battle victory in 938 reflects the talent in military art of the National Hero Ngo Quyen, but more importantly, it ended the foreign domination in country and opened a new era – the era of independence and sovereignty.
