|Emperor Le Tuc Tong was on
the throne only 6 months then died in 1504. The Court enthroned Prince
Tuan as Emperor Le Uy Muc, with the reign title Doan Khanh. Emperor Uy
Muc was an insane monarch who killed his grandmother and several ministers.
Discontent spread around. Realizing his life was in danger, he recruited
the martial art experts as body guard. One of them was Mac Dang Dung who
marked the end of Le dynasty later. In 1509, Emperor locked up Gian Tu

committed suicide by drinking poison later.
