Map - 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.
