Sample text

The situation changed on November 24, 1860, when Justin de ChasseloupLaubat was appointed as French minister of the navy and colonies, and he decided to send Admiral Léonard Victor Joseph Charner to head an expeditionary force to Saigon in spite of the new-found French military commitments in Mexico. In July 1861, the French took Saigon and proclaimed it a French city. The Vietnamese court went into turmoil. Emperor Tu Duc was resigned to the French taking over Vietnam, and he eventually signed a peace agreement with them.

Le Van Khoi held out in Saigon until the next year and died while his stronghold was being attacked by the imperial army. Minh Mang died on January 11, 1841, and he was buried in his mausoleum near Hue. His son, Thieu Tri, became the third emperor of the Nguyen dynasty and was formally crowned at Hue on November 11, 1841. The change in emperor in Vietnam seemed to have encouraged Ang Mei, Queen of Cambodia, to try to amend her previous policy of subservience to Vietnam. The new Vietnamese administration quickly arrested her, which precipitated fighting throughout Cambodia.

The Nguyen Dynasty 17 Gia Long had renamed the empire Viet Nam, replacing the previous name Dai Viet. He was a Confucian in terms of his upbringing and had long been influenced by Chinese philosophy. With Chinese as the official language of Vietnam, Gia Long provided stability for a country that had been wracked by war for the previous 31 years.
