Many of China?s dynasties were beneficial to China as a whole but one of the most beneficial dynasties was the Han Dynasty.
The Han Dynasty was one of the most influential and one of the powerful dynasties because of what they did while they were at power in China and here is how they began. In the year of 206 B.C., the Han Dynasty was formed and it became the dynasty that ruled China from then. The Han dynasty was the dynasty that had overthrown the Qin dynasty which was the dynasty that had been in rule of China before them. The Han Dynasty was started by a man named Liu Bang and soon he also had gained the role of becoming the Gaozu Emperor.
Liu Bang was one of the people who were responsible for the overthrow of the Qin Dynasty as he had made his own army after the Qin Dynasty had diminished and then took over the throne. According to the “Ancient History Encyclopedia”, “Liu Bang was the first Chinese Emperor who was originally a commoner.” It was from there that Liu Bang had established many different things and one of these things had occured within Chang?am and within Chang?am became the imperial capital. The city of Chang?am from that point foward became a very important city because according to the “Ancient History Encyclopedia”, “the city turned into a political, economic, military, and cultural centre of China.”
It was soon later that the Emperor of Ghazou had passed and then it was time for someone else to take over the throne in the Han Dynasty Era. It was then tht the Han Dynasty had encountered on the many sturggles that their dynasty would experience which was someone else wanted to take the throne, but the problem was that the person who wanted to take over the Dynasty was not a Han. This person was known as Lü Hou and she was a very greedy person and she had killed almost all of Liu Bang’s kids so that there would be no other Heirs to the throne and then she would be the one to take over the throne and thus a new dynasty would have started.
Little did she know that there was still one son of Liu Bang who was still alive and his name was Emperor Wen and because he was one the last sons that survived from the killings, he gained heir to the throne and because he had found out what Lü Hou tried to do, he ended up doing the same to her by killing all of the members of her family or as much as he could at the time, the Han dynasty would still live on. It was soon later that the Han Dynasty would start to do things that were beneficial for China and would help China become the Country they are today.
