『大南寔録』の成立過程(四) : 『正編第四紀』の黒旗軍記事にみる編纂意図 On the Formation of Dai Nam Thuc Luk (大南寔録) (IV) : the Style of Description of Liu Yong-fu (劉永福) and the Black Flags (黒旗軍)
Shi-lu (実録) was a common historical official record form adopted in East Asia in the pre-moderrn period. The purpsose of this article is to examine the relationship between the Nguyen Dynasty (阮朝) and Liu Yong-fu through the analysis of the entries in Dai Nam Thuc Luk, the Vietnamese official records. During the French invasion of Vietnam in 1880's, Liu and his army - the Black Flags fought against the French, to protect their hometown Laokai (保勝) in Vietnam. His two victorious battles were the first victories by the Asian army against the European army in Asia during that period. Nevertheless, Vietnam was eventually defeated and become a French colony in 1885. There are 80 items of record in Dai Nam Thuc Luk concerning the interrelation between the then Emperor Tu-duc (嗣徳) and Liu Yong-fu. Through analysis of these records, the writer examines the style of description of the official efforts to convey to the French that the Emperor was not connected with the resistance of Liu and his army against the French.
