The Ming Dynasty!

The Hongwu Emperor controlled the Ming Dynasty. The Yongle Emperor established Yan as a secondary capital and renamed it Beijing, constructed the Forbidden City. The Ming, described by some as "one of the greatest eras of orderly government and social stability in human history".

The Qing Dynasty!

The Manchurians were the people of the Qing Dynasty! Zheng He was a Chinese explorer who discovered Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, and East Africa from 1405 to 1433. Europeans wanted to get fine Chinese goods such as silk, tea and pottery so they traded with China. A Shogun is a Japanese general. Tokugawa was the founder and first shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan. European Christians came to Japan in the early 1500s and caused problems. Words escalated into violence and Tokugawa banned them. They wouldn't let a anyone become a citizen or trade with them.
