Well, the Ming Dynasty influenced the world in trade, culture, and might.
Mom, what the heck is the MING DYNASTY??
The dynasty's capital was actually called the Purple Forbidden City. Forbidden part means that the people needed permission from their empiriors to go there. Purple was a reference to the purpleish part of the night sky with the north star at its center.
Usually society's go from using coins to paper money, but in the middle of the Ming era they went from using paper money to coins.
The greatest threat to the Ming Supremacy was in the 17th century and was from the people of Manchus. In order to pay the cost of battling this threat the Ming government had to raise taxes, and neglected other parts of China. As the economy grew worse more and more people lost their jobs.
She must be a teacher.
In response to the threats, the Ming emperors gave the Great Wall of China a makeover. The new wall was made out of Limestone, granit, and fired brick of clay. It was made taller thicker and longer, and is still that way today.
I think I get it now. So the Ming Dynasty has a lot of history, it was once called the purple Forbidden City. Instead of going from coins to paper money they went from paper money to coins. They had a threat from the people of Manchus and due to that threat they updated the great wall of china. Does that sound about right
