From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lê Thị Ngọc Bình (1775[1]-1810) was a Vietnamese princess, youngest daughter of king Lê Hiển Tông of Lê Dynasty. Her early life was unknown, when the Tay Son Dynasty succeeded Le Dynasty as the official dynasty of Vietnam; Emperor Quang Trung ordered his Crown Prince Nguyen Quang Toan (later Emperor Canh Thinh) to marry her.

In 1801, Nguyen Anh's force, main rival of Tay Son, captured Phú Xuân and forced Canh Thinh flee to Tonkin and left Lê Thị Ngọc Bình and his wives behind. Nguyen Anh captured but did not threaten Le Thi Ngoc Binh; then Anh married her regardless of dissuasions of his followers.

Later, Nguyen Anh became Emperor Gia Long and gave her the royal title Đệ Tam Cung (roughly Third Wife or Third Empress). Bình had with emperor Gia Long four children: prince Nguyen Phuc Quan, prince Nguyen Phuc Cu, princess An Nghia Ngoc Ngon, and princess My Khue Ngoc Khue.

Le Thi Ngoc Binh died in 1810 and was buried in Truc Lam, Thua Thien Hue.
