Origin[edit | edit source]

For nearly three centuries, the Qing incorporated Tibetans, Mongols, Hans and other cultures into their own Confucian adherent society. Initial reigns saw explosive population growth, large scale conquest and an intense appreciation of the arts. Porcelain, painting, architecture and writing flourished, promoting a contrast of individuality alongside time-honored traditions.

However, the empire faltered when corruption in the imperial offices became too widespread to remedy. Famine, flooding, internal uprisings and external powers plagued the dog days of the middle kingdom. Over 20 million perished in ethnic and religious revolts, while the empire slowly lost control of its foreign territories like Korea and Taiwan. Western nations defeated the former powerhouse in the Boxer Rebellion, guiding the formation of the Republic of China.
