Ngo Quyen (897-944) was born and raised in Cam Lam Village, Duong Lam Commune, Son Tay Town, Hanoi.
In 938, he defeated the Chinese southern Han troops in a naval battle in Bach Dang River (now in the northern province of Quang Ninh), which officially ended a 1,000-year under the Chinese domination, opening up a long period of independence for the country.
The Bach Dang victory is a brilliant milestone ending 1,000-year period when Vietnam was occupied by Chinese power, and opening a new era in national history - the era of development, independence and autonomy in the country of Vietnam.
In 939, Ngo Quyen brought about a new period of independence of the country.
