I am Mi Nuong, daughter of the eighteenth King Hung Vuong. Everyone compliments me as a beautiful, gentle princess. My father loved me very much, and spoiled me with all my heart. When I reached the marriageable age, my father worried and wondered, wanting to find me a worthy husband.
On a beautiful summer morning, I was walking in the royal garden when I heard that my father told me that two young men had come to propose. I hurried back to the main hall and saw two handsome, handsome, healthy, strong sons kneeling in the dragon yard. Through my father’s questions, I know that one guy is a Mountain God and the other is a Water God. The god of the mountain looks very gentle, has the talent to wave to the east, the east is full of hills, waves to the west, and the west rises up mountains and hills. His name is Son Tinh. And the other guy named Thuy Tinh is equally talented: calling the wind, the wind coming, calling buy, buy back. Although Thuy Tinh is also a god, I look more fierce than Son Tinh.
My feelings are somewhat for Son Tinh, but I don’t know what the king’s father means. My father must have been very troubled by the two talented young men, so he called the Lac Marquis to discuss. I couldn’t attend, so I don’t know how the meeting went. Only after the meeting was over, my father said:
“Both of them are pleasing to me, but I have only one daughter, who can I marry?” Well, tomorrow, whoever brings the betrothal first, I will marry my daughter.
Son Tinh and Thuy Tinh asked what the offerings included. At that time, I was also very nervous, not knowing if the gift was difficult to find. King father said:
– One hundred sticks of glutinous rice, one hundred cakes of Chung cake and nine tusks, nine chickens, nine horses, one pair each.
The two boys accepted and begged to leave. Before we parted, I saw them both turn to look at me with earnest eyes. That whole night I hardly slept, I did not understand who would come first, who would be my husband. If it is Son Tinh, I feel more satisfied because Thuy Tinh looks really cold. Early the next morning, as I wished, Son Tinh brought the gift first and married me. The procession took place immediately after. I said goodbye to my father and followed him to the mountains. Sitting on a flower palanquin, I feel so happy because I have a husband I like.
On the way to Tan Vien mountain, we suddenly heard a loud shouting in the back, then the water rushed out everywhere, flooding the whole house. Looking back, I saw Thuy Tinh aggressively leading the group of Water Monsters, loudly demanding Son Tinh return me. It’s absurd. What is it that comes later and still causes trouble? I panicked and looked at Son Tinh. He tenderly told me to rest assured, then he took me to the top of the mountain, then returned to fight Mercury. On the mountain of Tan, we see the fighting going on terrible. Mercury calls for rain, calls for wind, makes the sky stormy, and shakes heaven and earth. Flooded water everywhere, Thanh Phong Chau is like floating on a sea of water. My husband is a man with more talent than people. He did not waver, he lifted hills, moved mountains to stop the flood water. As the water rises, the mountains are so high. The war lasted for several months, finally exhausted, Thuy Tinh had to withdraw her troops.
We are living a happy and joyful life with Son Tinh to this day. However, every year, Thuy Tinh also raises water and sends troops to the lagoon. But with her talent, every time Son Tinh won, Thuy Tinh had to retreat.
I am Mi Nuong – the beloved daughter of King Hung. Today is the most important day of my life – the day I get married. My husband is Son Tinh – a guy from Tan Vien mountain, who has the ability to move mountains to fill the lake. Being his wife is my happiness. Before the gentle eyes of the father, the cheers and blessings of hundreds of people, I followed Son Tinh home. Along the way, I dared not look him in the eye because I was too shy. Because this is the second time I have seen him, since the day he asked his father to marry me. Naturally, the air becomes wetter and colder. Thunder broke out, heavy rain fell. In the distance, the sound of shouting echoed loudly, even the sound of wind and rain. When I regained my senses and looked back, I realized that the one who was shouting rain to call the wind, causing all people to suffer was Mercury. He was the one who asked me to marry him at the same time as Son Tinh. However, when the time came for the king’s father to request the payment of the bride price, it was later, so he could not be with me. Seeing him angry, frantically raising water to engulf Phong Chau Citadel, I was extremely scared and helpless. Seeing people suffering from floods, we don’t know what to do. Suddenly, my husband stepped forward, and said:
– Everyone, step back so I can stop him.
After that, he took off his wedding gown, revealing his broad, muscular shoulders. He braced himself and lifted each hill, moving each mountain range higher, beyond the water. Thanks to that, people have a place to stop and avoid being drowned by the fierce water. However, Thuy Tinh still refused to stop, he continued to raise the water higher and higher, making the rain even heavier, in order to drown everything. And of course, Son Tinh did not give up. As high as Thuy Tinh raised the water, Son Tinh raised the land up there. So the battle dragged on for several months. In the end, Thuy Tinh was still unable to defeat my husband, exhausted from constant fighting, so she withdrew in hatred. Son Tinh and I continued on our way to Tan Vien mountain, starting our happy life.
Since then, every year, Thuy Tinh has raised water to avenge the old feud. But of course he couldn’t win.
In Tan Vien mountain, there is a happy married couple who are admired by all people. That’s me – Mi Nuong with her husband Son Tinh. Our marriage is a story that is known and handed down by many people.
At that time, I had just reached the age of marriage, and needed to find someone to keep me company. So my father decided to open a cocoon to find me a good husband. Because I am the princess loved by the king and father the most, as beautiful as a flower, with a gentle disposition, so many people come to cocoon the bridegroom. However, after the rigorous trials of the king, only two young men were allowed to enter the audience under the dragon yard. Those are Son Tinh and Thuy Tinh. Thuy Tinh is a guy from a far away sea who has the ability to call rain to call the wind. As for Son Tinh, he comes from the mountainous area of Tan Vien, when he waved his hand to the east, the east rose up the dunes, when he waved to the west, the west rose up a series of hills. Looking at both guys, everyone is healthy, handsome and has more talent than people. The king’s father was in a dilemma. Therefore, he had a meeting with the guards. After thinking for a while, he summoned the two men and said:
– Both men are satisfied with me, but I have only one daughter, who can I marry? Well, tomorrow, whoever brings the betrothal first, I will marry my daughter.
Hearing his father say that, both Son Tinh and Thuy Tinh agreed, and asked for the list of bridesmaids. Seeing the determination of both, the king was very pleased, and continued:
– The sacrifice consists of one hundred sticks of glutinous rice, one hundred cakes of Chung cake and nine tusks, nine spurts of chicken, one pair of nine red-haired horses. Have you heard?
“I hear you.” Both boys answered in unison.
After that, the two left together, preparing the wedding ceremony. From that moment on, I fell in love. Because of both guys, I love Son Tinh the most, but as a daughter, I know how to say it. So, throughout that day, we always clasped our hands in prayer to hope that Son Tinh would be the one to bring the wedding gift first. And maybe, God heard my prayer. The next morning, when I heard the servant asked the king to invite me to the dragon yard. We move in anxiety, nervousness. Arriving there, seeing the tall, handsome figure of Son Tinh in the middle of the courtyard, our hearts throbbed with boundless happiness. And then, a grand wedding between you and me was held. With everyone’s blessing, I officially became Son Tinh’s wife.
The wedding ended, I said goodbye to my father and the people, followed my husband to Tan Vien mountain. But then disaster struck again. Thuy Tinh brought the betrothal late, seeing that I had followed Son Tinh to leave, she was very angry. Immediately shouted rain, called wind, raised water to engulf the whole Phong Chau citadel. The people are indescribably miserable. Seeing this, I was deeply saddened, but there was nothing I could do. At that moment, my husband rushed forward, alone to stop the raging wave. He used his strength to lift each mountain, move each hill range, block the flood water, save thousands of people from danger. Looking at that great figure of him, I am even more happy and proud when I have been married to the right person. After several months of hard fighting, the victory finally belonged to Son Tinh, and Thuy Tinh was forced to withdraw. At that time, the people’s shouts of joy resounded throughout the world. However, from that time, every year, Thuy Tinh brought troops to fight in order to take revenge on the old enemy. But of course he couldn’t win.
Suddenly, there was a shout outside. It turned out that my husband won the battle again, he came back after defeating Thuy Tinh. Well, I have to go out to meet my husband, goodbye little friends.
Hello everyone, I would like to introduce myself, I am Mi Nuong – the daughter of King Hung and also the wife of Son Tinh. The girl is often mentioned in the story of Son Tinh, Thuy Tinh that folk traditions spread. Today, I will tell everyone about my life.
I am the only daughter of King Hung. Therefore, from childhood, we were raised in the love and care of people. Time flies, and soon I grow up into a beautiful, gentle, and nave young woman. When my father saw that I had reached the age of marriage and had no one in my heart, he opened a cocoon meeting to find me a satisfactory husband. That day, many people came to participate, but the king’s favorite was two young men named Son Tinh and Thuy Tinh. A man from the mountainous area of Tan Vien, has the talent to move mountains to fill the lake. A man from a distant sea, has the talent to call the rain to call the wind. Both of them were equally talented, so the father did not know who to choose. In the end, the decider put forward the final test, that whoever brought the bridesmaid first would get to be the concubine. All that night, I couldn’t sleep. Because of nervousness, because of anxiety, not knowing who will become her husband, and what kind of person is he?
It wasn’t until very late at night that we slept for a while. It was only a few moments later, when it was still early morning, that a commotion was heard at the palace gate. It turned out that someone had brought a wedding gift. That’s Son Tinh. Sitting inside the curtain, listening to the servant’s betrothal inventory, my heart throbbed with every beat. “100 glutinous rice balls, 100 banh chung, nine ivory elephants, nine spurts of chicken, nine red maroon horses… Enough is enough.” That voice tells us that the handsome young man with a bright smile in the yard is his husband. So the wedding took place right after that in a solemn, lavish way. At the end of the ceremony, before everyone’s blessing, I followed my husband to the palace.
However, while on the way, disaster struck. The sky was filled with dark clouds, and a storm raged in pursuit of the crowd. When the water rushes in, we realize that the leader is Mercury. It turned out that because he couldn’t marry me later, he got angry and chased his army. That makes us extremely miserable when we realize that we are the ones who indirectly cause those sufferings and misfortunes for all peoples. At the same time, our hearts are in great crisis. Then Son Tinh stepped forward. Struggling to pick up each hill, move each mountain range to block the fierce water. Although the situation was extremely dangerous, he did not flinch or fear. Focus on fighting. The tumultuous situation continued for several days. As much as Thuy Tinh raised the water, Son Tinh built up the mountain as high. It was not until Mercury was exhausted that he withdrew. The battle ended, Son Tinh’s strength and love was confirmed. People cheered and praised him, making me very happy. After everything is done, we continue on our way back home.
Since then, every year, Thuy Tinh has raised water to attack but never won. Ta and Son Tinh still live happily and happily despite his efforts to disturb. The story ends here, we have to go out to welcome back my husband who won the battle. Bye everyone.
I am Mi Nuong – the beloved daughter of the eighteenth Hung King. This year, I have reached the age to get married, so my father decided to open a cocoon festival. The person said:
– My daughter is as beautiful as a flower, with a gentle personality, so her husband must be a man of martial arts.
Listening to the king’s father said, I was both happy and embarrassed. The day of the bridegroom came, after many rounds of selection, there were two boys who were allowed to visit the king’s father. At that time, I stood behind the curtain and looked back and saw that both of them were very handsome and handsome. After a brief introduction. As we know, the guy on the right is named Son Tinh, lives in Tan Vien mountain, and the guy on the left is Thuy Tinh, lives in the sea. Looking at both boys, the king decided to try his hand. At that time, my father, my father, and the courtiers were all amazed at the talent of the two of them. One person can move the mountains to fill the tank, one person can call the rain to call the wind. Everyone is incredibly talented. Therefore, the king’s father fell into a difficult situation. He asked for my opinion, but I myself did not know how to choose. So, he called for his courtiers to come in and discuss. After a while of discussion, he decided that he would present a final challenge, which is extremely rare and hard to find wedding gifts. Whoever brings it first will be my husband. The sacrifice consisted of one hundred sticks of glutinous rice, one hundred cakes of banh chung and nine tusks, nine spurs of chicken, and nine red maroon horses. Immediately after receiving the list of bridesmaids, both Son Tinh and Thuy Tinh immediately left to prepare. Since then, I’ve always been in a state of anxiety, nervousness, not knowing who will become husband and wife with me. Worried, anxious, so that night, we could not sleep until late at night. However, just a moment later, I was called up by the servant, preparing to follow my husband back to the palace. After going to the dragon yard, I saw Son Tinh waiting there. Today, he looks so majestic, proud. So, the wedding between me and Son Tinh took place under the witness and blessing of hundreds of people. At the end of the ceremony, we said goodbye to our father, followed Son Tinh to Tan Vien mountain.
On the way, my husband and I were so embarrassed, we didn’t know what to say. Suddenly, the sky and earth darkened, the cheers, the sound of rushing water covered the space. We are forced to stop, at this time, stepping out of the palanquin, looking into the distance, we feel extremely frightened. The once prosperous Phong Chau citadel is now submerged in the sea, and cries are heard everywhere. Each column of water rolled like giant water snakes. On that water snake, Mercury is riding the wind and rushing. Seeing such a battle, I was extremely panic, not knowing what to do. At that time, Son Tinh told us to stay on the mountain, and he took care of the rest. Having said that, Son Tinh headed towards the fierce water, directly confronting Thuy Tinh. He lifted each hill, moved each mountain range, built earthen ramparts, stopped the flood water. Thus, the whole land escaped from being submerged in water. Seeing this, Thuy Tinh became more and more angry, and tried to shout more rain, raising the water higher. However, even so, Son Tinh calmly stopped everything. Finally, after a few months of struggling, before my anxiety and thousands of people, Thuy Tinh was exhausted and was forced to withdraw. So, peaceful life is back. We and Son Tinh returned to Tan Vien mountain in the cheers and support of the people.
From then on, Son Tinh and I became a couple living happily together. Every year, I often go back to the capital with him to visit my father and relatives. Glad to see everyone is healthy. Only one thing, is that every year, Thuy Tinh raises water to fight with my husband. This makes us very awkward, the people are also very tired. But fortunately thanks to Son Tinh, he could never cause suffering for all people of Dai Viet.
Hi kids! I am Mi Nuong, you probably know me through the story related to Son Tinh and Thuy Tinh. From the day I followed Son Tinh to the mountain, my life was very happy, only her five husbands still had to work hard to fight Thuy Tinh. It’s a long story, today I’m going to tell you all about it.
The eighteenth Hung King is my father. Because I am the youngest son, I listen to my father very well, so my father loves and pampers me to the fullest. When it comes to marriage, my father wants to find a worthy husband to be a refuge for his beloved son. As soon as I knew that my father meant it, many people came and proposed to me. But partly because I don’t like it, partly because they are not really talented, so the father has not agreed to anyone. One day, two boys also came to compete. At first glance, I knew these were people of extraordinary talent. A handsome, handsome man, wearing a suit of fur, neatly dressed. His footsteps are flexible, gentle, and brave like the steps of a tiger or leopard. His name is Son Tinh, he comes from Tan Vien mountain. He bowed to my father and asked to show his talent. He waved his hand to the east, the east rose to the dunes, waved to the west, the west rose up the mountains and forests. His extraordinary talent and martial arts made everyone cheer and praise incessantly. My father seems very pleased. The second guy, Thuy Tinh, looks a little more fierce. He wore sparkling clothes woven by very large fish scales, followed by the cheers of shrimp and fish gods. He waved his hand to call the wind and rain, causing everyone to be terrified but also very admired. The king’s father saw that the talents of the two were equal, did not know who to choose, so he asked me for advice. I still gave the right to pick a husband to my father, so I did not express my opinion, but honestly, I had feelings for Son Tinh. After meeting with the Lac marquis, Lac general issued a condition:
– The next day, whoever brings the wedding first will be able to bring Mi Nuong back.
The betrothal he offers is so strange and rare, we’ve never seen it before. All that night, I couldn’t sleep. Don’t know who will be first? I don’t know if we will go to the forest or to the sea? The more I think about it, the more worried and sad I get because I’m about to leave my father.
Exactly as I wished. The next day, Son Tinh brought the bride-to-be first. The offerings included one hundred sticks of glutinous rice, one hundred cakes of Chung cake, nine tusks, nine spurs of chicken, and nine red-haired horses – a pair of each, but one thing we can see is that they are all rare products. of the mountains. I glanced at my father. Is it because my father favors Son Tinh, so he asks for gifts from the mountains, or because he understands his daughter’s mind? The more I think about it, the more I admire and love my father. After finishing the ceremony, we followed Son Tinh to the mountain. Wherever the bride procession goes, a region of excitement comes there. Halfway there, suddenly I heard a scream like a wave rising behind me. According to the servant’s report, because he could not marry me later, Thuy Tinh was angry and chased Son Tinh. His face is so scary! His eyes rolled back, his beard rose up full of anger and continuously howled rain, wind, thunder, and lightning that shook the sky and swept away many houses. He kept yelling at Son Tinh to return me to him. My entourage and I were terrified. In the meantime, Son Tinh used all his internal strength to move each mountain, pick up each hill to prevent the water flow. The battle was extremely fierce. Sitting in the palanquin, I worried about the fate of the people, for my husband’s life, and prayed to the gods to bring him victory. Sure enough, wherever Thuy Tinh’s water rose, my husband’s hills and mountains suddenly rose there. The battle lasted for a few days, then Thuy Tinh was exhausted and had to withdraw her troops.
Since then, warm memories of old stories lead to heavy resentment, deep hatred, Thuy Tinh still raises water to beat her husband every year. People still handed down the song:
High mountains, rivers still go,
Five years of revenge, forever fighting jealousy.
Son Tinh is a kind person, at this time of year, he is away from home. He and his soldiers fought against Thuy Tinh to protect the lives of the people and bring peace to everyone. Hope he will win Mercury so that life is always peaceful and full.
