The Hung Vuong era was a continuation of the tribal clan era to the period of class division and the first state appearance of the Vietnamese nation. So far we have not been able to accurately determine the Hung Vuong era for many years. According to the Hung Vuong records, until today it has been over 2000 years since 18 Hung Vuong’s birth. Some historians have assumed that the Hung Vuong era existed from the 7th century BC to 258 BC.

The first growth of our ancestors was in northern Vietnam. The land was not very crowded, there were not much people, but it had enough resources to form a nation, it also had enough conditions to survive and develop. It was in this period that they established the foundation of the Vietnamese people, the foundation of Vietnamese culture and the Vietnamese spiritual tradition.

So far, through the sources of feudal historians and the basis of the achievements of history, we can see the economic and social conditions of the nation’s inauguration. Due to the demand of water treatment (a special legend of Son Tinh Thuy Tinh), the demand for anti-foreign aggression and the exchange of economic  and culture was getting  more and more promoted between the tribes and close blood relations tend to rally and unite. The leader of Lac Viet set up Van Lang. He became king, called Hung Vuong and that title was passed on for 18 generations. Hung Vuong was the leader of Vietnam in the era when we began to build our country.

In the 18th generation, Van Lang united with another tribe in the land and form Au Lac, the second state of Vietnam in history. After a short time our country fell under the domination of the Northern feudal dynasties for 10 centuries. This transitional period from the tribal time to the feudal time have left a big impact on society and tradition. After that period, Hung King was no more, but we still honor him as the founder of the nation until today.
