Can it really be considered a Dynasty if it had only one ruler? Dynasty would suggest more than one. Chris 01:32, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
- Yes, it can if the rule was established on the hereditary principle but the line died out. Usually dynasties have more than one ruler but not always. Itsmejudith 13:25, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
Why is Qin Dynasty called a "Dynasty" when its ruler only ruled for a short time?
In folktales, Trong Thuy gave My Nuong a cape made of goose feathers, and told her to pluck it to leave a trail when running away from Co Loa citadel so he could come to find her. When An Duong Vuong took his only daughter, My Nuong, and fled on a horse. My Nuong, sitting behind her father, leave a trail of goose feathers. No matter how fast An Duong Vuong ran, the enemies seemed to be able to follow him. Finally, at the shore, on his knees, he cried out in defeat. The Golden Turtle appeared again in front of him and said "the enemy is right behind your back" and quickly disappeared. An Duong Vuong understood and killed My Nuong for her betrayal. Trong Thuy arrived soon after to find his wife dead. He committed suicide to be with her. An Duong Vuong was no where to be seen.
Kinh Duong Vuong
- According to legend, Kinh Duong Vuong is the ruling title for Loc Tuc, father of Sung Lam or more well known as Lac Long Quan. Yellowtailshark (talk) 04:59, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
- Haha, they'd all be stubs though. The Lac Long Quan and Au Co articles are already short. Perhaps we should consolidate it to a Mythical origins of the Vietnamese people article with all the mythical names redirecting to this section. I think it'd be a good idea to separate myth from archeology. I'd do this except I'm not sure what would be a good primary source. I only know that this myth wasn't written down until the 14th century or so. If I can figure out the name of the original literature that penned this oral tradition and use it as a reference, then it would have more credibility than a hack job of different interpretations by different writers self-publishing on their own website.

A Google Books source states that the Âu Việt were the Xi Ou (西甌; Vietnamese: Tây Âu), who lived in part of what is today Guangdong and Guangxi. We need an article on Âu Việt. Badagnani (talk) 20:34, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Is this part of Vietnamese of Chinese History?
Don't want to start a nationalistic war here BUT a) An Duong Vuong was a Prince of Shu, a Chinese state. b) the Au Viet people were descendants of the state of Yue, a Chinese state.
So, why would this be part of Vietnamese history?
