Qin Shi Huangdi was the first emperor of China, He ruled from 256 BC - 210 BC. At the age of 35, he managed to build the project of The Great wall of China. At the age of thirteen, he succeeded his father's regality. Qin Shi Huangdi was also very aggressive and ambitious at an early age. When he became emperor, he established one government over people who had fought one another for centuries. Qin Shi Huangdi was also a very strict person. He made people follow legalism, a system by which he would reward those who obeyed him and Punish those who did not. Those who disobeyed the emperor risked torture, hard labour and death. He also ordered all books in China burned and all scholars/ teachers murdered. Building the Great wall and other works he killed 100, 000's of prisoners. As we remember Qin Shi Huangdi's, he was hated that when he died in 210 BC Civill War broke out and his entire family and all his realatives were hunted down and executed but his system lived on. If it wasn't for him, China wouldn't be like it is today.
