The name of Hanoi means "within the rivers" and is derived from its position at the central point of the delta between the Red River and its tributary, the Day River. During the early part of the 11th century, Viet Nam was united for the first time by the Ly people, who set up their capital at Tanron, a castle town located on the site of present-day Hanoi.
