The second Chinese domination marks a period when Vietnam fell into Chinese control for a second time, between the end of the Trưng Sisters and the start of the Anterior Lý Dynasty. The Trung sisters' independence rule had been a relatively brief interruption during the Chinese domination of Vietnam which continued from 111 BC to 939.

The late Han Dynasty of China strengthened its control over the region in 43 and Han governors ruled the area. Even when the Eastern Han Dynasty split into the Three Kingdoms in 220, Vietnam remained under the control of the Chinese state of Wu. The Chinese prefect of Jiaozhi Shi Xie ruled Vietnam as an autonomous warlord and was posthumously deified by later Vietnamese Emperors.[1]

A female rebel named Triệu Thị Trinh briefly pushed the Chinese rulers out in 248, but was soon overthrown. Then Vietnam was under Jin China and the first half of the Southern and Northern Dynasties. The domination ended by 544, when Lý Nam Đế came to power.[2]

Some other local rebellions were organized by:
