I am mad that you servants of the emperor have so much power over the emperor
You stay in your lane as a peasant!
The year of 927...
The year of 184...
We can't accept this anymore!
If you want a war, you found one!
The time of the rebellion...
Parts of the empire continued to fight each other splitting the empire power. This then led to the end of the Han Dynasty.
Sir, the north of our empire is rebelling
Very well! Prepare the troops for a war
A military general named Taizu became the emperor of the Song dynasty in the year of 927. Taizu learned from the mistakes of the Han dynasty.
The population increased greatly and many people from other areas came to live in the cities of the Song Dynasty. Due to this significant increase in the population, many markets, schools, and restaurants opened. This helped bring China and the Song dynasty to a period of prosperity called a golden age.
You have done very well on the civil service exams earning you a place in the government
The Song dynasty leaders picked candidates that did well on the Civil Service exams instead of the wealthy and corrupt ones. This helped keep corruption out of the government.
