  Nguyen Dynasty - MSN Encarta
The Nguyen family first became prominent in Vietnam during the 16th century when Nguyen Kim, an ancestor of the Nguyen, fought to restore the Le dynasty after its power was usurped by the Mac family.
By the end of the 16th century, Nguyen’s power in the south was sufficiently strong to defy the Trinh, and by 1673 both families had accepted a de facto division of the Vietnamese state.
During the next 100 years, the Nguyen completed the conquest of the kingdom of Champa as well as a large part of Cambodia, before a peasant rebellion in 1771 led by the Tay Son brothers swept away both the Nguyen and the Trinh to reunite the country.
