After defeating the invaders, Trung Trac became King. Three years later, the Han army returned and defeated the Trung sisters and their army, after which the sisters killed themselves by jumping into the Hat Giang river.

The uprising has gone down in Vietnamese history as a demonstration of the nation's strength and patriotism, as well as the crucial role of Vietnamese women in national construction and defence.

The ceremony was attended by Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh, Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung, Secretary of Ha Noi Party Committee Hoang Trung Hai and many Government officials along with crowds of residents and visitors.

The same day, the festival at the temple dedicated to the Trung sisters opened, with many cultural and religious activities planned to be held until February 1.
