       In the period 1407 – 1427, Vietnam was again ruled by the Dynasty of China, namely: Ming Dynasty. Vietnam was again ruled by the Vietnam Monarchy, namely the Le Dynasty (1428 – 1527). In 1527 the Le Dynasty fell and was replaced by the Mac Dynasty (1527 – 1592), however, since then there have been many anti-Mac Dynasty rebellions that have divided Vietnam and led to a civil war, namely the Le-Mac War (1543-1592), War Trinh-Nguyen (1627 -1672), where the country was then divided into 2 (two), namely: Dang Ngoai (north) with King Trinh and Dang Trong (South) with King Nguyen who founded the capital at Phu Xuan (now Hue). The Tay Son (Farmer’s Movement in 1771) succeeded in bringing down King Nguyen and King Trinh and uniting a divided nation for more than 200 years. In 1802, the Tay Son Dynasty was defeated by the Nguyen Anh Dynasty (1802-1945) who gave the country a new name as Dai Nam with its capital Hue.

       The presence of the French in Vietnam began with the entry of French missionaries into Vietnam around the 16th century. In 1858, France invaded Da Nang and began a war against Vietnam. France occupied the South for more than 20 years and then the North in 1883 with its attack on the capital of Hue, and forced the Nguyen Dynasty to sign the Peace Agreement 1883 – 1884 which recognized French rule throughout Vietnam.

       France occupied Vietnam until the entry of the Japanese army. After Japan surrendered to the Allies in August 1945, Vietnam on September 2, 1945 declared its independence. But then the French wanted to re-enter Vietnam on the grounds of helping arrange Japanese surrender to the Allies. Resistance and fighting against France erupted again, where finally in 1954, the last French fortress at Dien Bien Phu fell which marked the end of the French occupation in Vietnam.
