Nanyue (Nam Viet)

Nanyue (Chinese: 南越) was an ancient kingdom that consisted of parts of the modern Chinese provinces of Guangdong, Guangxi, Yunnan and much of modern northern Vietnam. The kingdom was established by the Chinese general Zhao Tuo (Traditional Chinese: 趙佗; pinyin: Zhào Tuō) of the Qin dynasty who assimilated the customs of the Yue peoples and central China in his territory.[1] Its capital was named Panyu (番禺), in today’s Guangzhou, China. In Vietnam, the name Triệu Dynasty (based on the Vietnamese pronunciation of the surname Zhào) is used to refer to the lineage of kings of Nanyue, and by extension the era of Nanyue rule
