Dinh Tien Hoang and the External Relations of the Dinh Dynasty


Prof. Dr. Nguyen Van Kim

VNU-University of Social Sciences and Humanities


In the process of development of the Vietnamese nation, the 10th century was considered a turning point in which the most important change was that our nation regained its independence after more than a thousand years under the Chinese domination. The Dinh Tien Hoang's throne coincided with the context of Dai-Co-Viet society under serious challenges in domestic and foreign affairs.

By using and analyzing Vietnamese and international sources, the article attempts to clarify the political and ideological challenges of Dinh Tien Hoang and Dinh dynasty in relations to regional forces. In fact, Dinh Tien Hoang focused on consolidating national power, paying great attention to the power considering as the root to force the North power and Southern neighboring forces to accept two fundamental issues of principle: respecting autonomy and recognizing the real independence of Dai Co Viet. It can be said that the Dinh dynasty's reaction created the first principles, experiences and examples for a political and diplomatic response of many dynasties later on.


A Geographical History Study on the “Dinh” in Vietnam from 16th Century to 20th Century - An Interdisciplinary Approach

The article seeks to apply an interdisciplinary approach and exploit data resources, land registers, history, dictionaries, to provide insightfully picture of the formation and transformation of military “dinh”, administrative “dinh”, and the changing history of the “dinh” into the marketplaces, towns, mansions, shrines and geographic names in the territory of Vietnam. From the sixteenth century, when the Sino-Vietnamese sound of the word “doanh” 營 began change to “dinh”, “dinh” was used to refer to military units of the Le Trung Hung dynasty (1533-1788).

In Tonkin, “dinh” was military units, barracks, and marketplaces. In Cochinchina, “Dinh” included both military units, barracks, administrative units, and marketplaces. Because, “Dinh” contributed to make the marketplaces. When Vietnam was unified in the early nineteenth century, military “dinh” and administrative “dinh” were no longer, “dinh” developed into the marketplaces (Dinh market), towns, mansions (“dinh”, “dinh co”, “dinh thu”), shrines (“dinh Van Thuy Tu”, “dinh Cau”, “dinh Nam Ong”, “dinh Thay Thim”, “dinh Co”), and saved the sign in the mountain and river names from Nghe An province to Dong Nai province (Dinh river, Dinh mountain, Dinh cape) etc.

In the early of 15th century, Dai Viet and Joseon relations with China changed to two different ways. While Dai Viet failed to maintain the diplomatic relation with Ming dynasty and was invaded by the Ming, Joseon took advantage of their knowledge of Ming-Dai Viet relations to develop the Sadae policy and reacted to every change in Ming diplomatic relations. Changes in Minh-Dai Viet relation brought Joseon experiences and challenged them to defend their independence. Joseon tried her effort to stabilize the relationship with the Ming in order to help them to maintain their peace in the first half of 15th century.

The period between the 16th  and the 18th  century in Vietnam was one of the most notable stages in the national history. Although civil war led to the unexpected separation of Tonkin and Cochinchina, these centuries also witnessed a significant and flourishing development on foreign trade. Realizing their strategic position in the regional trade network, both Trinh Lords in Tonkin and Nguyen Lords in Cochinchina developed a variety of effective policies to expand overseas trade and significantly influence the system of international exchange. In Cochinchina, the resource of commodities in the Western mountain region and Central Highland provided the Nguyen Lord with a foundation to ensure the stable flow of commerce, as well as the existence of Cochinchina’s regime.

Based on investigating various kinds of precious trade items from the Western mountain region and Central Highland in Cochinchina’s trading oversea, this article has two main objects. The first is to explore the Nguyen Lord’s administrative policies towards the Central Highland and Western mountain region as well. Comparing with the strategies pushing Cochinchina’s border further to the South (Nam tien), this article also distinguishes the military policies being carried out by Nguyen regime in the Western mountain region and Central Highland from the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries.
