Hierarchy of Annam (historical region)  Annam (historical region)

Note: Refers to the historic region and former state of central Vietnam; the term is also used to refer specifically to French-governed Vietnam. The region extended nearly 800 miles (1,290 km) along the South China Sea between Tonkin on the north and Cochin China on the south. In addition to Hue, the former capital, the principal cities in the region are Đà Nẵng (the chief seaport), An Nhon, Quang Tri, and Vinh. The ridge of the Annamese Cordillera separated northern and central Annam from Laos on the west; the ridge then runs southeastward and ran along the coast of southern Annam, which included the plateaus that stretched to the borders of Cambodia and Cochin China. The narrow, fertile coastal plains of north and central Annam were interrupted by spurs of mountains that almost reached the sea, as at Porte d'Annam, a pass important in Annamese history. The region was conquered by the Chinese in 214 BCE; it finally gained independence in 1428. It came under French influence in the 18th century and a French protectorate was established in 1883 (until 1885). Annam was partioned between North and South Vietnam in 1954 when Vietnam was divided along the 17th parallel, with most of the region going to the South.
