Around 188–193, “barbarian tribes” across Jiaozhi (Guangdong, Guangxi, Guizhou and Northern Vietnam) under Liang Long rebelled against the Han dynasty. We know that Liang Long was a Wuhu man (Tai-speaking Zhuang) and the revolt attracted “Luo barbarians” in Jiaozhi and Jiuzhen (North-Central Vietnam).
The Chinese responded by divided Jiaozhi into Jiaozhou (North Vietnam) and Guangzhou (Guangdong-Guangxi).
In 248, a “barbarian Luo woman” named Triệu Ẩu in Jiuzhen led a revolt against the Wu but was suppressed by Lu Yin.
In 263, “Yue barbarians” in Jiaozhou under Lã Hưng revolted against the Wu. They appealed the Jin (Sima) for help. The Jin sent 30,000 soldiers to Northern Vietnam to aid the rebels. The Wu sent large armies and fleets of 50,000 to combat the Jin and Viet rebels. In 271 the Wu successful recaptured main towns and ports in Jiaozhou, however fighting continued in the countryside until 280 when Jin destroyed Wu.
