ARVN forces counter-attacked and succeeded in driving part of the PAVN out of South Vietnam, though they did retain control of northern Quảng Trị province near the DMZ (Vietnamese Demilitarized Zone). Vietnamese empire The post of Tổng Trấn (''governor of all military provinces'') was a political post in the early of Vietnamese Nguyễn Dynasty (1802–1830). From 1802, under the reign of emperor Gia Long, there were always two ''Tổng Trấn'' who directly ruled Vietnam's northern part named ''Thành Long'' (Hanoi and surrounding territories) and the southern part named ''Gia Định'' (Saigon and surrounding territories) while Nguyen emperors ruled only the middle part named ''Vùng Kinh Kỳ'' (Huế and surrounding territories). Tổng Trấn is sometimes translated to English as viceroy. Philip Taylor (2004), Goddess on the rise: pilgrimage and popular religion in Vietnam, University of Hawaii Press, p. 36. In 1830, emperor Minh Mạng abolished the post in order to increase the imperial direct ruling power in all over Vietnam. From 28 January 1973, aircraft from ''Enterprise'' and ''Ranger (USS Ranger (CV-61))'' flew 81 combat sorties against lines-of-communication targets in Laos. The corridor for overflights was between Huế and Da Nang in South Vietnam. These combat support sorties were flown in support of the Laotian government which had requested this assistance. Laos had no relationship with the cease-fire in Vietnam.

The predominant flavor is of lemon grass. Features ''Bún bò Huế'' originated from Huế, the last imperial capital of Vietnam. The term Bún bò Huế is used more by people from northern or southern Vietnam. In central Vietnam, it is simply known as bún bò. The broth is prepared by simmering beef bones and beef shank with lemongrass and then seasoned with fermented shrimp sauce and sugar for taste. Very spicy chilli oil is added later during the cooking process. ''Bún bò Huế'' usually includes thin slices of marinated and boiled beef shank, chunks of oxtail, Vietnamese sausage and pig's knuckles or pork. It can also include cubes of congealed pig blood, which has a color between dark brown and maroon, and a texture resembling very very firm tofu. Constitutional issues thumb left Bảo Đại (Image:Bao Dai 1953.jpg), previously emperor of Annam (Annam (French protectorate)), was the nominal ruler of the 1945 Empire of Vietnam. Kim and his ministers spent a substantial amount of time on constitutional matters at their first meeting in Huế on 4 May 1945. One of their first resolutions was to alter the national name to '''Việt Nam'''. This was seen as a significant and urgent task. It implied territorial unity; "Việt Nam" had been Emperor Gia Long's choice for the name of the country since he unified the modern territory of Việt Nam in 1802. Furthermore, this was the first time that Vietnamese nationalists in the northern, central and southern regions of the country officially recognized this name. In March, activists in the North always mentioned '''Đại Việt''' (Great Việt), the name used prior to the 15th century used by the Lê Dynasty and its predecessors, while those in the South used Vietnam, and the central leaders used '''An Nam (Annam (French protectorate))''' (Peaceful South) or '''Đại Nam''' (Great South, which was used by the Nguyễn Lords). Kim also renamed the three regions of the country-the northern (former Tonkin or Bắc Kỳ) became Bắc Bộ, the central region (former Annam (Annam (French protectorate)) or Trung Kỳ) became Trung Bộ, and the southern areas (former Cochinchina or Nam Kỳ) became Nam Bộ. Kim did this even though at the time the Japanese had only given him direct authority over the northern and central regions of Vietnam. When France had finished its conquest of Vietnam in 1885, only southern Vietnam was made a direct colony (French colonialism) under the name of Cochinchina, while the northern and central regions were designated as protectorates as Tonkin and Annam. When the Empire of Vietnam was proclaimed, the Japanese retained direct control of Cochinchina, in the same way as their French predecessors.
