Author’s Abstract

This paper proposes a long-overdue synthesis of the data on Linyi and Champa from the 3rd to the 7th century. It first explores “Linyi” as it is presented in Chinese texts and estimates its origins and territory in the present-day Quang Tri and Thua Thien-Huê provinces. It then focuses on the technically advanced Xitu kingdom in the Thu Bon Valley, and its first famous king, Bhadravarman, at the end of the 5th century. Finally, after comparing the epigraphic use of “Champa” at My Son and “King of Champa” outside of My Son, the paper suggests that Linyi, “city of the Lin”, and Champapura, “city of the Cham”, were both ancient kingdoms of Central Vietnam.
