Trang Quynh is the hero of a series of popular satiric tales. Some of them mock at the ignorance of Lê Kings, such as the Pregnant Billy Goat; others make fun of the Trịnh Lords like the Vase with Soya Sauce; and If the Doctor Dies, the Lord also Will.
Others attack the arrogance of envoys from the North (Fight of Buffalos, Drawing Competition). Others criticize superstitious people: Big Wind, Borrowing Goddess Lieu’s Money. According to a new hypothesis, Trạng Quỳnh was a historical personage.
