Every big city of Vietnam has a st named Huyen Tran Cong Chua (which means Princess Huyen Tran ), and her sad love story was known by every Vietnamese person since their childhood. She is also a part of Da Nang’s history and a part of my memory, I also included some graphical explanation with my poor Corel skill, hope you enjoy it. So let the story begin…
Once upon a time in Vietnam, there are 2 kingdoms, Dai Viet by Tran Dynasty and Champa by Jaya Sinhavarman III whom Vietnamese people usually call Che Man,
So to marry her, in 1301, Jaya Sinhavarman III king sent a lot of precious gifts as Wedding presents, but the people in the royal family didn’t accept them, even they knew that the Supreme Emperor already agree this wedding.
It’s 5 years until….
….the Champa king willing to give 2 Districts as a wedding present, a costly love.
Sadly, just 1 year later, the King suddenly die and that means his wife have to be burn with him…
A rescue team had been sent by the King to the Champa kingdom and they sucessful rescued the princess. But nobody know why they floated on the ocean in 1 year long, people said that the princess had already falled in loved with her rescuer – Tran Khac Chung before the wedding with The Champa king.
The official history books didn’t mention much about the time after that, some story said that the princess become a buddish nun, some other said that she live in the secret with her lover, no body know.
Until now, history expert said that this story could be not a truth history because many reasons, but it don’t have to be true just like any legends which we was told…
….and it remind me that I used to be a children.
