Qu?ng Bình formerly Tiên Bình under the reign of Lê Trung H?ng of the Lê Dynasty (this province was renamed Qu?ng Bình in 1604), is a province along Vietnam’s north-central coast. The province has an area of 8,065.8 square kilometers and population of 857,818 inhabitants (as of 2008) The province is bordered by the Laotian Khammouane Province to the west, the North Pacific Ocean to the east, Hà T?nh Province to the north and Qu?ng Tr? Province to the south. Historically, this region belonged to V?n Lang and later the kingdom of Champa. Later it was claimed by both the ??i Vi?t and Champa and officially annexed into ??i Vi?t by Lý Th??ng Ki?t, a Lý Dynasty general (under the reign of Lý Thánh Tông).
The site of present-day Qu?ng Bình was battlefields between Champa and Vietnam until the Vietnamese territory was expanded further south by subsequent dynasties. Qu?ng Bình’s importance expanded after Nguy?n Hoàng, a prince of Nguy?n lords was sent to the south by a king of the Lê Dynasty. Hoàng built his estate and turned it into ?àng Trong, a rival of the de facto Tr?nh-controlled ?àng Ngoài. Qu?ng Bình became an important front to defend ?àng Trong from attack by ?àng Ngoài. Under French rule, this province was part of Annam. During the Vietnam War, this province was part of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (aka North Vietnam), only 20 km from the DMZ. This province was severely devastated by bombing from U.S. B-52s. This province is home to the World Heritage Phong Nha-K? Bàng National Park. The province is also home to several famous Vietnamese persons, including general Võ Nguyên Giáp, poet Hàn M?c T?, writer B?o Ninh and the family of former South Vietnamese president Ngô ?ình Di?m.
