althougt that didnt matter because the british and china were using opium and it was a good untill the ruler jirging band it completely. this cause the business with the bristish to be mad and this meants war
The British came to war with china because opium was no longer able to obtain but the british was defeated but the treaty of Nanjing cause the emperor was forced to accept the charge that comes with it
They gave Hong Kong and up to 12 billion dollars as in establishing a "fair and reasonable" as what the treaty was established. thought China lost a lot they were fine afterward
