The Han greatly expands the Chinese empire. The qun dynasty retains the centralized bureaucracy and unified political system of the Qin but adopts and grafts upon this the Confucian view that government should be run by educated, ethical men.
The state of Qin was located to the north of the Zhou Dynasty territory, serving as a barrier between it and the less civilized states above it. Qin was also considered a barbarian state by the Zhou.
I'm Qin Shi Huang I am the first Chinese sovereign to proclaim myself Emperor.
Although shortlived, the Qin Dynasty will always be celebrated in Chinese art for at least one achievement - its role in creating the multi-figure terracotta sculpture known as The Terracotta Army, an extraordinary set of military warriors designed to protect the Qin emperor in the afterlife.
The Qing dynasty (1636–1912) was established by conquest and maintained by armed force. The founding emperors personally organized and led the armies, and the continued cultural and political legitimacy of the dynasty depended on the ability to defend the country from invasion and expand its territory.
During the Qin dynasty, Confucianism—along with all other non-Legalistphilosophies—was suppressed by the First Emperor; early Han dynasty emperors did the same. Legalism denounced the feudal system and encouraged severe punishments, particularly when the emperor was disobeyed.
