Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Friday, 12 July 2019 is Triệu dynasty.
The Triệu dynasty (Vietnamese: Nhà Triệu; 家趙) ruled the kingdom of Nányuè / Nam Việt (Chinese: 南越; literally: 'South Yuè'), which consisted of parts of southern China as well as northern Vietnam. Its capital was Panyu, in modern Guangzhou. The founder of the dynasty, called Triệu Đà or Zhao Tuo, was a military governor for the Qin Empire. He asserted his independence in 207 BC when the Qin collapsed. The ruling elite included both ethnic Chinese and native Yue, with intermarriage and assimilation encouraged. Triệu Đà conquered the Vietnamese state of Âu Lạc and led a coalition of Yuè states in a war against the Han Empire, which had been expanding southward. Subsequent rulers were less successful in asserting their independence and the Han conquered the kingdom in 111 BC.
