Hearn of The Metropolitan Museum of Art wrote: "In 1644, the Manchus, a semi-nomadic people from northeast of the Great Wall, conquered the crumbling Ming state and established their own Qing (or Pure) dynasty.

[1] Taking over a largely pacified and economically prosperous country, Kangxi's reign marked the beginning of the greatest period of the Qing dynasty (and possibly of the entire Chinese imperial history). [1] During its reign, the Qing Dynasty consolidated its grip on China, integrated with Han Chinese culture, and saw the height of Imperial Chinese influence. [1] The Qing Dynasty was founded not by the Han Chinese, who form the majority of the Chinese population, but the Manchus, today an ethnic minority in China. [1] After a Chinese peasant revolt against the Mings, a Chinese general assisted by the Manchus defeated the rebel peasants, and subsequently established the Qing Dynasty in Beijing. [1] After the initial setback due to wars which took place to overthrow the Ming, the Chinese economy flourished in the middle period of Qing dynasty with expansion of markets; and more trade, between regions and with overseas markets. [1] Some scholars estimate that the Chinese economy did not the regain the level reached in the late Ming until 1750, a century after the foundation of the Qing dynasty. [1] Generally, in the Chinese dynastic cycle, Emperors founding a dynasty usually consolidated the empire through absolute rule, examples including Shi Huang of the Qin Dynasty, Taizong of the Tang Dynasty, Kublai Khan of the Yuan Dynasty, and Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty.

The Qing Dynasty also known as Manchu dynasty was the last dynasty in the Chinese history. [1] In terms of political state, the Qing Dynasty prospered well with the government positions being shared by both Manchu and Chinese. [1] From the establishment of the Qing Dynasty, a period of growth transpired for the Chinese and Manchu people. [1] There were different assigned duties for Manchus and Chinese troops and the Qing Dynasty succeeded in expanding its borders for years.

[1] My reading of the evidence suggested that there was a productive middle ground between these interpretive poles, and this became one of the most persistent arguments my book makes: The success of the Qing dynasty was the product of both the selective patronage of traditional Chinese culture and Manchu multiculturalism. [1] The Qing Dynasty was also marked by new literary texts, both Chinese and Manchu alike, and thriving artistic practices. [1] As you are well aware, in 1967 Ping-ti Ho wrote an extremely influential article asserting that the key to the longevity and cultural florescence of the Qing dynasty was the adoption by the conquering Manchus of a policy of "systematic sinicization" -- that is, their self-conscious promotion of certain long-standing Chinese ideas, institutions, aesthetic preferences and social customs. [1] Native Chinese were forced to wear these by the Manchus during the Qing Dynasty. [1] Qing dynasty era cash coins generally bear the reign title of the Emperor in Chinese characters, with only a single change of reign title occurring with the Qixiang Emperor becoming the Tongzhi Emperor by decision of his mother, Empress Dowager Cixi. [1] The Kangxi Emperor of Qing dynasty ordered the compilation of a dictionary of Chinese characters, which became known as Kangxi Zidian or Kangxi Dictionary. [1] More importantly, apart from its length, Kangxi's reign is also celebrated as the beginning of an era called "Kang-Qian Golden Age" ( Chinese : 康乾盛世 ), also known as "High Qing", during which the Qing Dynasty reached the zenith of its social, economic and military power. [1]

The first emperor of the Qing Dynasty - Emperor Shunzhi - took power in 1644 and his reign lasted until 1661. [1] In October 30, 1644, about 5 months after the Qing army occupied the capital, Hong Taiji's son Fulin became the Emperor Shunzhi, and he announced the new dynasty was founded. [5] In 1636, Nurhaichi's son, Abahai, changed the dynasty title to Qing (1644 - 1911) and moved the capital to Shenyang. [1]

One new rule that the Qing had imposed (which became deeply unpopular near the end of their dynasty) was that all Chinese men had to wear their hair in the Manchu style. [1] Did you know anything about the queue order or Qianlong's literary inquisition? From what I know, the native Chinese culture was lost when the Manchus (Qing dynasty) banned them from wearing the top knot and their traditional clothes. [1] The continued functioning of the imperial state system into the Qing, a dynasty founded by non-Han rulers, thus suggests the remarkable resiliency of Chinese political traditions despite dramatic institutional changes brought by alien conquest. [1] People nowadays would classify the Qing as a Chinese dynasty mainly because the Manchurian’s moved their capital to China and this conversation is presently being pushed more by Chinese as the Manchurian identity in China has integrated with the majority Han Chinese.
