Later Lê dynasty early period

The Later Lê dynasty early period (Vietnamese: Nhà Lê sơ) from 1428–1527 is a distinction current in writing on the history of Vietnam to distinguish the 100-year-long early period of the Later Lê, when the emperor-kings both ruled and held real power, from the 256-year-long Later Lê dynasty warlord period (Vietnamese: Nhà Lê trung hưng; 1533–1789) when, following a six-year civil war, the emperor-kings were restored as figureheads, but power was held by a succession of warlords.[1]

The Le Dynasty was one of the long-term dynasties of premodern Vietnam. It is usually divided into two terms — 1428 to 1527 and 1533 to 1789 — and is also called the Hau Le (latter Le) dynasty to distinguish it from the Ly [Le] dynasty of the tenth century."
