Madam Trieu is also named as Trieu Thi Trinh, Trieu Au. She was born on October 2nd in 226 in Quan Yen district, Cuu Tran prefecture (present-day Yen Dinh). At the age of 19, she fervently declared: ” I want to ride over strong wind, sail over strong waves, hunt fierce fish off the East Sea coast and chase the Ngo invaders out of the country, regain independence, shatter slavery, but will never give in to become a concubine”. Sticking to those words, she recruited young men and women from far and wide and trained them into soldiers under her leadership. In 248, she led an uprising against the Ngo invaders rule and killed the Chinese governor.
