Lê Thế Tông (chữ Hán: 黎世宗 born 1567, reigned 1573 - 1599), named Lê Duy Đàm (黎維潭) was the 13th emperor-king of the later Lê dynasty of Vietnam. He reigned only nominally, under the power of warlord Trịnh Tùng, who took King Lê Thế Tông to the Royal capital Đông Đô in 1593 marking the formal restoration of the Lệ Dynasty, but not allowing the king decision-making powers.[1]
