Trần is the second most popular Vietnamese surname, accounting for 11% of the population, after the surname Nguyễn (38.4%). The Trần Dynasty (Vietnamese: Nhà Trần, Hán Việt: 陳朝, Trần Triều) was a Vietnamese dynasty that ruled Vietnam (then known as Đại Việt) from 1225 to 1400. They are credited with defeating three Mongol invasions, most notably in a decisive battle at the Bạch Đằng River. The dynasty was founded in 1225 when king Trần Thái Tông ascended to the throne after his uncle Trần Thủ Độ orchestrated the overthrow of the Lý Dynasty.
