Vietnamese History: Đinh Phế Đế (980) and the threat from the North

When Đinh Tuê became emperor, because of his age, his mother the Dowager Empress Dương Thái Hậu assumed the role of regent. While all of these events were taking place, to the north, China was enduring some dynastic changes. The Song Dynasty had reunified the country for the first time since the fall of the Tang. The Song Dynasty would last until the end of the 13th century; when they in turn were overrun by the Mongol Yuan Dynasty under Genghis Khan. The turmoil of succession of Đinh Tiên Hoàng in their southern border gave the Chinese Song a pretext to meddle and interfere into the matters of the Vietnamese, to invade the country and subjugate it again to their rule.
