Storyboard Text

  • The Fall of the Han Dynasty
  • Sir, I don't mean to alarm you, but the Han Dynasty has officially fallen and the barbarians have broken through the wall here, and in many other places., I think we should leave.
  • State Exams
  • And what if we fail?
  • If you are not aware, you are testing to become government officials, you are also suppose to know and practice Confucianism.
  • The Imperial State
  • No, but did you hear that hear that you now have take tests to get government positions.
  • Did you hear that our town is getting a govener to run the place?
  • The Han Dynasty fell in 220 A.D, it soon lead to famines, floods, and multiple invasions from the north of China. Also, because of how short of a time the Han Dynasty lasted, they did not really accomplish much.
  • Mongol Rule
  • Copy that, we will go back to the camp and push the northeast.
  • Hey, I'm here to give orders from Kublai khan that you have permission to push farther north and east to establish towns,  also, protect the merchants.
  • Even if we live, where would we go, also, I've heard rumors that there are famines and floods everywhere.
  • Buddhism stayed with Chinese after the fall of the Han Dynasty because of the teaching of the Budda. Confucianism had a rebirth though and was again, used in the government. The Tang Dynasty was the first dynasty to inforce a test that you had to pass in order for you to be a government official.
  • China's Influence
  • Hello, I just got back from China, would you like a book or two, paper, porcelain, fireworks, or just some tea, but have you heard of Buddhism, you should try to practice it, I think it helps me when I'm stressed.
  • The Tang Dynasty also made a new way of governing because of the size of China. It was similar the way the Muslims ruled. There would be a bureaucracy and governors who would take control of an area and report to the emperor of what is happening in each part of China. They also made a test system that you have to pass to be apart of the government in some way.
  • China comes back to power
  • Now, with the Mongol emperor dead, we can rebuild the imperial state and bring back old traditions, I also don't really like the fact that China is so open as well.
  • When the Mongols invaded China in 1200 A.D, their leader was Genghis khan. By the time Genghis khan died, all of China was conquered. Kublai khan was became his successor and conquered more lands. The  Mongols also encouraged trade. They did this by protecting the trade routes to China, they also did sea trade.
  • Because the Mongols greatly encouraged trade, many people went there and brought back the many things the China had to offer. Kublai khan even had his own adviser that was a trader, his name was Marco Polo. China probably also spread its religion to far away places.
  • I don't know, could I maybe have just the gunpowder from the fireworks, also, I think I'll consider Buddhism.
  • After the death of Kublai khan in 1294 A.D, there were a few more emperors, but then a revolt happened and the Mongols were overthrown. The next dynasty was the Ming Dynasty. This dynasty had a short time of sea voyage, but when Admiral Zheng He  and Youngle passed, they ended the sea voyage.
  • I think we should still keep some trade.
