The Quing Dynasty was located in northern China. It was founded in 1636 by the Manchus. The dynasty ended in 1912.
The high of the Qing dynasty is when the Manchus invaded China, forcing the people to change their culture. They had just invaded Bejing and were at their strongest.
Some factors that lead to the decline of the Quings were corruption, ruler incompetence, and population boom. This lead to birth laws being put into place and famine.
The Qing army was created, quickly overtaking the Ming's. The emperors created and led armies by themselves.
The Qings were located in northern China, so they practiced the Chinese culture. Their art included pottery, silk, watercolor, and architecture. Some European art was adopted to their influence, but the Manchus/Chinese were quick to isolate themselves.
The first leader of the Qing dynasty was Emperor Taizu (Nurhachu). However, the emperor who was said to be the most successful was Emperor Kangxi. He ruled from 1661 to 1722.
There were 13 Qing rulers. The Qing Dynasty adopted the government that the Ming Dynasty used but made minor adjustments.
Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism were popular religions of the Qing dynasty.
