Kublai Khan, once leader of the Mongols, is known best for being a successful conqueror of the Old World. As ruler of a reunified China since for the first time since the Tang Dynasty, Kublai Khan was great in his victories, yet his efforts to obtain control over the southern China, and what is now northern Vietnam, were failed. This paper will take a look at the three attempts Kublai made on Vietnam, and why the state with such a weak sense of national identity was able to defeat the great conqueror on every strike. By 1225 the Mongols had controlled most of China and Manchuria. Kublai Khan began his rule around the year 1260, replacing his older brother Qan Mongke.
As previously stated, the Sui dynasty came to be after China was in a period of instability, thus the fact that it was able to be rejoined was a huge achievement for the empire. Sui Yangdi came to power, in 604, after his father’s death, while that much may be true; it is believed he “did so after assassinating his father (the Wendi emperor) and his elder brother” (Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica, britannica.com). While this may seem alarming, it is also worth to mention that Emperor Wendi came to power after he “killed about 60 of his brothers and relatives and made himself the emperor of his kingdom” (Wu chinahighlights.com).
Or was a Asoka a truly changed being. Therfore Asoka was an Enlightened Ruler who woked hard for his people and focued on helping others to make a better society.

After the battle, Asoka sat under the Bodhi Tree that Buddha had once sat under.
Emperor Qianlong whom enjoyed posing for Tibetan paintings and bestowing them to religious leaders was a powerful and long lived ruler. When the Qing era started in 1644 it was thought to be the demise of Chinese civilization because it was taken over by the Manchus. However, the Manchus have adopted many Chinese traditions while keeping their Tibetan roots and close ties with Tibetan Buddhism. When Ding Guanpeng executed the painting Buddhas of the Three Generations in 1744 he painted it on woven silk tapestry with ink and colors. Woven silk is also known as Kesi, which can be translated into “cut silk” (foot note).
During the period from 755 to 763, the rebellion of An Lushan shook the ruling of the Tang empire. An Lushan, a Jiedu shi 節度使, is a part-Turkish and part Sogdian. Sogdians spoke a language from middle Persian. In 755, An Lushan rebelled and his troops took the eastern capital, Luoyang, easily in a very short time. After a few months, under the pressure of the rebellion of An Lushan, the emperor, Xuanzong had to flee away with the companion of his troops and his beloved concubine.

“‘any government that could pass creatures like that is corrupt and immortal,’ my father announced. ‘possibly,’ admitted the inspector, ‘but it’s still the government’” (Wyndham 36). Ultimately, Joseph Strorm is demanding, devoted and can be ill-tempered on many levels. He makes everything
Kublai Khan was the 5th Khagen of the Mongol Empire. He reigned from 1260 to 1294 when he died. He came into power after his brother Mongke in 1260, but fought his brother in the Toluid Civil War until 1264. This caused splitting inside of the empire, so he was mostly powerful in China and Mongolia, but had some influence elsewhere. He founded the Yuan dynasty in China in 1271, and ruled it until his death.
(Ruiz, Victor, and Baez) Our mission was to collect some “intel” on the Chinese and the Russians, because there was a military coup (a coup is a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government) going on in China. The U.S. feared that the Russians would join sides with the Chinese and needed intel to prove it so they could prevent it. We were able to complete the objective and escape the city.

Moreover, he was brilliant in debate. He would often defeat the 5th Dalai lama, which sparked jealousy in the hearts of the Dalai Lama´s personal staffs like Desi Sonam Choephal and others.
