How was Le Thanh Tong’s rule similar to the Ming Chinese rule of Vietnam?
Similarities between Ming Chinese and Le Thanh Tong
Le Thanh Tong established a specific Chinese style of centralized administration and expanded control over southern dynasties. It was at the expense of the Champa kingdom from Modern Vietnam. Similarly, Ming Chinese moved across borders to expand their territories and control other nations (Jiang, 2018). They also adapted to the Chinese style of political institution and culture.
