For the 6th monarch of Vietnam's Lê dynasty 1461–1504 (黎憲宗), see Lê Hiến Tông.

Lê Hiển Tông (黎顯宗 1717–1786), born Lê Duy Hiệu, was the second-last king of Vietnamese Lê Dynasty. He reigned from 1740 to 1786 and was succeeded by his grandson Lê Duy Kỳ.[1][2][3]

At the time Vietnam was under the power of the Trịnh lords. Trịnh Giang ruled 1729-40 with the title Uy Nam Vương during the reign of Lê Thun Tông (1732–35) and Lê Ý Tông (1735–40) but was deposed due to poor leadership. Trịnh Doanh ruled 1740-67 with the title Minh Do Vương, ruling in the first part of the reign of Lê Hiển Tông. He was followed by Trịnh Sâm who ruled 1767-82 with the title Tinh Do Vương. At this point the Lê dynasty began to regain its power.
