            The Han Dynasty was well known throughout China and this
is how they became who they are today. In the year of 206 B.C., the Han Dynasty
ruled over China. The Han Dynasty had to do many things in order to reign in
China for example they had to overcome the Qin dynasty, the dynasty that ruled
China prior to the arrival of the Han dynasty. Liu Bang, the first leader of
the Han dynasty was known for being one of the many people responsible for the
overthrow of the Qin dynasty, he played a very crucial part into making the Han
dynasty the leading power in China. According to the “Ancient History
Encyclopedia”, “Liu Bang was the first Chinese Emperor who was originally a commoner”
and also according to “Ancient History Encyclopedia, he was known as the
“Ghazou Emperor” before that. It wasn?t long till the Han dynasty overthrew the
Qin dynasty and it was soon after the Han dynasty established their presence
and they settled in the city of Chang?am which according the “Ancient History
Encyclopedia” was known as the “imperial captial”. The city of Chang?am from
that point foward became a very crucial 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 Liu Bang had passed away
which meant it was time for a new leader to lead the Han dynasty in that era of
China. The Han Dynasty had encountered many stuggles because there were many
people that tried to steal the throne from the Han Dynasty after the passing of
Liu Bang which put the Han dynasty in danger of coming to an end. This person
was known as Lü Hou
and she was a very greedy person and had killed almost all of Liu Bang’s kids so
that there would be no heirs to the throne and then she would be the one to
take over the throne and thus a new dynasty would have been born. 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 of 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.

            The Han Dynasty did many different
things that helped to make China the country they are today and here are a few
of the many things that they did for China. The Han Dynasty being one of the
longest lasting dynasties in China, was able to accomplish many things that
were beneficial to China and would be crucial to China’s society economically
and politically. The Han Dynasty did many things for China for example

lasting effects on all who followed, particularly in the areas of government,
law, philosophy, history, and art” and these were some of the main things that
China is known for today. Many of the inventions that they Han dynasty had
created helped to advance China economically because the things that they
created helped to . Some things that the Han dynasty created were things like
the “Silk road” and according to “The Ancient History Encyclopedia”, the silk
road was known as “a network of trade routes” which helped to increase the
amount of trade that China did with other countries/ people at the time.  According to “The Ancient History
Encyclopedia” the Silk road was mainly used to trade with the western cultures
and this is where most trade occurred in China at the time because of how
widely it was used by those people, however it became known as the Silk road
because one of the main things that was traded on the trade route was silk. One
of the many main things that the Han dynasty had created for China that
benefited China in a huge way was the invention of paper, paper then became a
main source for them to document all of their work, research and other things
and now today in China, paper is vastly used today. The Han dynasty was also
responsible for creating many different works of art, such as pottery and many
more. Many other things that the Han Dynasty had created was things such as
tomb sculptures and they were also known for advancing their technology be

literature is really what made them what their dynasty was all about. Even thoughh
they had many different things that they were known for making, their
literature and their poetry is really what helped them to be known. Even though
the Qin dynasty was known for their literature, it was the Han dynasty that
ended up carrying it through and advancing the literature written because of
