Prehistoric cultures of Vietnam

The Khúc family (Vietnamese: Họ Khúc) was a session of leaders who challenged Tang rule over Vietnam. The Tang took control of the northern Vietnamese region of Giao Châu (roughly corresponding to the area of modern Hanoi) after 618 and established twelve provinces and 59 districts under the Department of Annam Domination (Vietnamese: An Nam Đô Hộ Phủ). This control lasted until the 9th century, when the village of Khúc Thừa Dụ launched a rebellion against the Tang in 905. By 906 an autonomous region in Vietnam was established under the Khúc clan in Tống Bình (modern day Hanoi) in 906.

A succession of Khúc governors ruled during the short period of independence in the 10th century:

  • Khúc Thừa Dụ 905-907
  • Khúc Hạo 907-917 - son of Khúc Thừa Dụ
  • Khúc Thừa Mỹ 917-930 - son of Khúc Hạo

Rebellion and end of the Khúcs

General Dương Đình Nghệ (or Diên Nghệ) 931-937 overthrew both the Khúc clan and the Han. Then in 937, governor Dương was killed by escort Kiều Công Tiễn and thus ending Khúc rule.
