(*) Emperor Hung Vuong was the founder of the Vietnamese nation nearly 50 centuries ago. The dynasty with 18 kings lasted more than 3000 years and led Vietnam to development and progress in peace. To honor the Founding Fathers, the Hung Vuong National Altar was built in 250 BC in Phu Tho (North Vietnam), and has since been a popular site in the country.
