Today I will tell you about the history of CHINA ----Qin Dynasty,I think you will be interest in it.
The Qin Dynasty was the dynasty that redefined China. The emperor of this era wanted to conquer the warring states that the Zhou Dynasty had in essence created. This emperor succeeded and China was one nation once more. Upon conquering all the warring states, the emperor pronounced himself as the first emperor of China or, Qin Shi Huang Di. This was the first time outside forces knowledged the existance of another race of people, and aptly named the nation China after the then current dynasty, the Qin.
The Qin empire was vast. The first emperor pushed China's borders South to current day Vietnam, and current day Korea. But the central kingdom was still in the Yellow River Valley. Regardless, of all the accomplishments of the Qin, the best known is the Great Wall of China. Qin Dynasty is well known for beginning the Great Wall Of China.which was later augmented and enhanced during the Ming Dynasty.
Emperor Qin Shi Huang was a tyrant despite his contributions to the country. To prevent his people to think freely, he burnt many books which he feared would affect people's thinking. Worse, in his second year, after he learnt some scholars' discussions about his arrogance, he buried 460 of them alive. In history, these two events are called 'To Burn the Books and Bury the Scholars Alive'. And yet, at the same time, the Emperor built luxurious palaces, the Great Wall, the famous Terra-Cotta Warriors and Horses, together with his own mausoleum, by imposing on the masses, through hard labor, heavy taxes, and rigorous law and military service, giving the community a difficult and arduous existence.
