From 2876 BC to 258 BC two ethnic tribes of the Lac Viet and Au Viet lived together in many areas with other inhabitants. Due to the increasing need to control floods, fight against invaders, and exchange culture and economy, these tribes living near each other tended to gather together and integrate into a larger mixed group. The leader of Lac Viet joined all the  tribes together to found Van Lang Nation, addressing himself as King Hung. The next generations followed in their father�s footsteps and kept this appellation. Based on historical documents, researchers correlatively delineated the location of Van Lang Nation to the present day regions of North and north of Central Vietnam, as well as the south of present-day Kwangsi (China). The Van Lang Nation approximately lasted from the beginning of the first millennium B.C. to the 3rd century B.C.
It's important to know that Viet Nam has a long history. Viet Nam's history is rich with legend, tradition, determination, and adaptation.
