One Hundred Kings (A Legend of Ancient Vietnam) Jun 19, 2005 by Amy Friedman and Meredith Johnson Thousands of years ago in Asia, there was a land known as Xich Quy, country of red demons, ruled by the descendants of the Yellow Kings of China. King Kinh Duong Vuong, a descendant of the last Yellow King, married a daughter of the river lands who was a water goddess, and among her many powers was the ability to transform herself into a sea dragon. Kinh Duong Vuong and his queen lived by the sea, and there they raised a son they named Sung Lam. He was a handsome child, strong and healthy, and as he grew older, he began to display many of his mother's gifts. Like his mother, he was drawn to the sea, and like her, he too possessed magical powers. When the king died, Sung Lam inherited the throne, and as time passed, he proved his extraordinary powers. He saved his people from invasion by monsters and devils, and he rescued them from many natural disasters as well. As the years passed, the people began to call him by another name, Lac Long Quan, Dragon King of the Mighty Sea, for they believed their king possessed the power of the sea dragons.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
