From

the

crypt

How it all began... Ancient China is one of the oldest civilisations in the history of the world.

Interview with the Ghost of

qIN SHI HUANG

Ying Zheng is born in 259 BC. He is the eldest son of King Zhuangxian of Qin, a ruler of the Qin state.

Coochy, coochy coo.

Hic!

The king dies when Ying Zheng is only 13 years old. Shut up and eat up your rice pudding.

Son, I’m about to go to the next world. You’re in charge now. Cool! Stop telling me what to do.

China is ruled by powerful families called dynasties through much of its history. One of the first dynasties is the Shang (1600 to 1046 BC).

Lords own large areas and often fight over who owns which land.

Ying is too young to rule, so he is helped by the Prime Minister, Lü Buwei.
