What is the Great Wall of China?

the Tang dynasty.

History
In fact, it is rare to see China's history clean, unlike the constant presentation, and it is also rare for a
dynasty to end up calmly and immediately and comfortably giving way to a new one. The dynasties were
usually established before the death of a governing government, or continued until one year after they
were conquered.

Chin Dynasty
Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of the Chinese Empire / Qin dynasty, believed that his empire would last
for 10,000 generations. But when he died, a rebellion took his son from the palace, thus changing
another emperor. There are such rebellions for 20,000 years, which occurs when an emperor is weak or
stubborn. According to Chinese chants, Heaven's patronage loses when a ruling family or clan is
replaced.

Song Dynasty: Outpouring of Inventions


Another Chinese era of art and science was the Song dynasty, which reigned for 300 years. At this time
invented printed texts so large encyclopedias in China were published; the literature spreads and
sketches; it was first used in powder for guns; and used the perfect compass for ocean travel. But the
Song Dynasty's military capabilities were poor, so Mongolians from China came from Mongolia.

Yuan Dynasty: Period of the Mongols


In the middle of the 13th century, foreign Mongols invaded Central Asia. This is the first time that
foreigners conquered China. Genghis Khan led the conquest of China, almost all of Asia, and Northern
Europe. Genghis Khan's grandson, Kublai Khan, continued to invade China, becoming China's emperor in
1260 and built the Yuan Dynasty. Kublai Khan liked and loved the customs and traditions of Chinese. He
has been promoting Confucius schools. During his time Marco Polo arrived in China, who lived in the
country for many years and wrote about it. However, although Kublai Khan lived like a Chinese emperor
for 100 years, the Chinese rebelled against the Mongols in 1368, so the Ming dynasty was launched.

Ming Dynasty: The Last Chinese Dynasty


Under the emperor Yongle of the Ming dynasty, the Mongols from China moved to Siberia. The navy of
this dynasty became so powerful, which reached Africa. This dynasty lasted for 3 years.
