Nam Việt (Chinese: 南越; pinyin: Nányuè)
|Founder||Triệu Đà (Chinese: 趙佗; pinyin: Zhào Tuó)|
In Vietnamese historiography, this dynasty was a government of the Vietnamese nation and its end marks the beginning of the First Chinese Domination (111 BC–39 AD). However, Chinese-oriented historians tend to regard the Triệu as a Chinese dynasty and thus consider this a period of Chinese rule over Vietnam. The name "Vietnam" is adapted from "Nam Việt".
