Until recently, Đắk Nông was part of the larger Đắk Lắk Province, but is now fully independent. Before 1975, Đắk Nông was part of South Vietnam (Republic of Vietnam) and was formerly named Quảng Đức Province. However, after the 1975 Việt Cộng conquest over the South in the Vietnam War, Quảng Đức was conjoined with Đắk Lắk Province. For Đắk Nông's history, please see Đắk Lắk Province.
