Didn't they move the capital from Nanjing to Beijing in the 15th century?
Welcome to China. Surprisingly not many people know when it was founded so,China was founded October 1, 1949. Today we are at the Capital complex, which used to be called the Purple Forbidden City.
Omg I just saw on google that the final emperor was thrown over by a postal worker in the 17th century.
In the middle of the Ming era, China switched from paper money to coins. The metal was imported from the Spanish Empire and Japan.
In the early 17th century, the greatest threat to Ming was the northeast of the Great Wall in Manchuria. The Ming government had to raise taxes to pay for war. But during that time the economy got worse and worse.
What about the pottery? I heard it was really famous around the world!
Wow! I think we have one at home!
The famous chinese pottery is famous around the world. It is blue and white and usually has a beautiful dragon on it. We traded them in 1497 until now. People still use them and they are still famous.
Back on the Purple Forbidden City subject, there were 10,000 rooms in the house! And the wall around it was 15 miles long and 40 feet high!
Thank you Kim Jong Un
Right through here is your room! Welcome to Zhongguo and enjoy your stay!
