The Qin Dynasty

By 221 B.C., a man by the name of Qin had overthrown all remaining members of the Zhou Dynasty, and all other opposition, allowing him to place himself as the ruler of China. The Qin Dynasty would only last about 11 years. Yet, during these short years, this dynasty would make changes that would affect the history of China for thousands of years. So influential was Qin, that the name of the nation, China, is a derivative of his name.







Qin First Emperor of China

In order to show his importance and power, Qin added a new name to his own. He began calling himself Qin Shihuangdi, which means Qin, the first emperor of China.

Qin Shihuangdi again reorganized the affairs of China. Instead of a system of noblemen, Qin wanted everything to be under his direct authority and control. He established a strict set of written laws that were recognized throughout China, and set up military control in each region of China so that local noblemen could not rebel against the emperor.
