Khuc Thua Du

Khuc Thua Du

▪ Vietnamese ruler
flourished 10th century

      Vietnamese ruler in 906–907 whose rise to power, as a result of a successful rebellion in 906, constituted one of the first attempts of the Vietnamese to achieve independence.

      A wealthy landowner who, according to the annals of old Vietnam, was “respected for his virtuousness and his charity,” Khuc Thua Du led an uprising in 906 against the Chinese governor of the provinces surrounding the Red River Delta, in what is now northern Vietnam. The Chinese were forced to recognize Khuc Thua Du as the new legitimate governor, a position to which his son succeeded upon Khuc Thua Du's death.
