Legend has it that Lac Long Quan (Dragon King) and his wife Au Co (Phoenix Queen) gave birth to one hundred men. Fifty sons went with their mother to live in the mountain and the father took the other sons out to sea. The eldest son followed the mother to settle in Phong Chau of today’s Phu Tho province and founded the country known as Van Lang.

Van Lang was the first state of Vietnamese people. The Hung Kings’ dynasty lasted 18 generations.

The custom of worshipping the Hung Kings developed from the 12th century, being officially honoured during the reign of King Le Thanh Tong in 1470. Since then, celebrations of the founders of the Vietnamese nation were maintained throughout the community. The practice was recognised as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2012.
