Phung Hung (761-802) was one of two early Vietnamese kings born in the Ancient Town of Duong Lam, just north of Hanoi. The other was Ngo Quyen (896-944) (see my separate review).

In 791 Phung Hung and his brother led a rebellion against the ruling Chinese, laying siege to the headquarters of the Annam (as Vietnam was called back then) Protectorate. Phung Hung became king and ruled for 11 years.

After his death the people deified Phung Hung and built a temple consecrated to his memory and it still stands today a short bicycle ride through the rice fields from Duong Lam.

Nearby is the Temple and Tomb of Ngo Quyen, but Phung Hung's tomb is unknown. It is believed he was buried in a secret location to stop his enemies from desecrating the grave and it has never been found since.
