Map - China, Qin dynasty 221 - 206 B.C.60 viewsMap of Qin Dynasty and its administrative divisions, 221 - 206 B.C.

The Qin dynasty was the first dynasty of Imperial China, lasting from 221 to 206 B.C. Named for its heartland in Qin state (modern Gansu and Shaanxi), the dynasty was founded by Qin Shi Huang, the First Emperor of Qin. The strength of the Qin state was greatly increased by the Legalist reforms of Shang Yang in the fourth century B.C., during the Warring States period. In the mid and late third century B.C., the Qin state carried out a series of swift conquests, first ending the powerless Zhou dynasty, and eventually conquering the other six of the Seven Warring States. Its 15 years was the shortest major dynasty in Chinese history, consisting of only two emperors, but inaugurated an imperial system that lasted from 221 B.C., with interruption and adaptation, until 1912 A.D.

Map - The Great Jin, the Jurchen Jin Dynasty, as of 1142 A.D.54 viewsMap - The Great Jin, the Jurchen Jin Dynasty, as of 1142 A.D.

The Jin dynasty, the Great Jin, ruled north eastern China 1115 to 1234. Its name is sometimes written as Kin, Jurchen Jin or Jinn in English to differentiate it from an earlier Chinese dynasty with the same name. Its rulers were of Jurchen descent. After vanquishing the Liao, the Jin launched an over hundred-year struggle against the Song dynasty, in southern China. Over the course of their rule, the Jurchens of Jin quickly adapted to Chinese customs, and even fortified the Great Wall against the rising Mongols. The Mongols invaded the Jin under Genghis Khan in 1211 and inflicted catastrophic defeats. Although the Jin seemed to suffer a never-ending wave of defeats, revolts, defections, and coups, they proved tenacious. The Jin finally succumbed to Mongol conquest 23 years later in 1234.

Map - Xin Dynasty 8 - 23 A.D.47 viewsXin Dynasty 8 - 23 A.D.

Wang Mang was a Han Dynasty official and consort kin who seized the throne from the Liu family and founded the Xin Dynasty, ruling 9–23 A.D. The Han dynasty was restored after his overthrow, and his rule marks the separation between the Western Han Dynasty (before Xin) and Eastern Han Dynasty (after Xin). Some historians have traditionally viewed Wang as a usurper, while others have portrayed him as a visionary and selfless social reformer. Though a learned Confucian scholar who sought to implement the harmonious society he saw in the classics, his efforts ended in chaos. In October 23 A.D., the capital Chang'an was attacked and the imperial palace ransacked. Wang Mang died in the battle. The Han dynasty was reestablished in 25 A.D. when Liu Xiu (Emperor Guangwu) took the throne.

Showing the capital Chang'an and the location of all commandery seats. In the Western Regions, a number of pretectorates were Han vassals and under the nominal authority of the Chief Protector of the Western Regions appointed by the Han court.

From roughly 115 to 60 BC, Han forces fought the Xiongnu over control of the oasis city-states in the Tarim Basin. Han was eventually victorious and established the Protectorate of the Western Regions in 60 BC, which dealt with the region's defense and foreign affairs. The Han also expanded southward. The naval conquest of Nanyue in 111 BC expanded the Han realm into what are now modern Guangdong, Guangxi, and northern Vietnam. Yunnan was brought into the Han realm with the conquest of the Dian Kingdom in 109 BC, followed by parts of the Korean Peninsula with the Han conquest of Gojoseon and colonial establishments of Xuantu Commandery and Lelang Commandery in 108 BC. In China's first known nationwide census taken in 2 AD, the population was registered as having 57,671,400 individuals in 12,366,470 households.
