Vietnamese History: Triệu Vũ Vương or Wu Wang (207-136 BC)

In the legends of Trọng Thủy and Mỵ Châu (also known as “The Magic Bow”), Triệu Đà married his son Trọng Thủy to An Dương Vương’s daughter Mỵ Châu in an attempt to steal a magical bow from his in-laws. He thus defeated An Dương Vương in 207 BC and used the bow to seize control of Âu Lạc. Having seized Âu Lạc, Triệu Đà united it with the other states, and controlled and renamed the whole country Nam Việt or Nanyue. Triệu Đà proclaimed himself Triệu Vũ Vương and ruled this country until 136 BC.
