17721822
a Vietnamese poet born at the end of the Lê dynasty. She grew up in an era of political and social turmoil – the time of the Tây Son rebellion and a three-decade civil war that led to Nguyen Ánh seizing power as Emperor Gia Long and starting the Nguyen dynasty. She wrote poetry using chu nôm (Southern Script), which adapts Chinese characters for writing demotic Vietnamese. She is considered to be one of Vietnam's greatest classical poet. Xuân Dieu, a prominent modern poet, dubbed her "The Queen of Nôm poetry".
