Dai Viet (Vietnam), Rebels of the Tran Dynasty, Rebel Nhut Le, 1368 - 1370
When King Du-Tong died in 1368 without leaving a successor to the throne, the pretender Nhut-Le appeared as a pretender. He was the son of an actress, who married Prince Cung, Du-Tong's brother. Nhut-le, supported by his mother and by some officials of the palace, was proclaimed king in the capital and took Cam-Thieu for the name of his reign. His government lasted until late 1370, when the proper king took the palace by storm, and took Nhut-le prisoner, and then put him to death by bambooing.
