Map of the Qin Dynasty
The Qin (also called Ch'in) Dynasty reunited China in 221 BC and lasted her rule to 206 BC. It was the first multi-ethnic centralized feudal empire in Chinese history. Although surviving only 15 years, the Qin Dynasty was important in Chinese history and deeply influenced the following dynasties, particularly the following Han Dynasty.
The Qin Dynasty Map shows the outline of Qin Dynasty with yellow lines and its capital city Xianyang (also spelled Sienyang or Hsienyang, today's Xianyang in Shaanxi Province), using red lines to connect it with other parts of the empire and indicating the central government's direct control of the masses, and presents the Great Wall constructed on the northern border to prevent the Huns' attacks.
