  • The Nguyễn lords were a series of rulers of Southern Vietnam. While they claimed to be the loyal followers of the Later Lê dynasty, in reality they were de facto rulers in the south of the country, while the Trịnh lords ruled the north. Their descendants later ruled the whole of Vietnam as the Nguyễn dynasty and posthumously elevated their titles to emperors. Their rule consolidated earlier southward expansion into Champa.
