——Exhibition Overview——

Part I. Capital Established in Nanjing


In the final years of the Yuan dynasty, the government was mired in violent disorder; rules and laws were excessively lenient; great disparity emerged between rich and poor. In 1351 (11th year of the Emperor Zhizheng's reign), Liu Futong led the Red Turban Rebellion in Yingzhou, which evoked several Red Turban armies emerging in the area north and south of the Huai River. Soon, Liu seized the city of Bianliang and assisted Han Lin'er to succeed the throne as"Emperor Longfeng of the Great Song." No other rebellion could surpass this in strength and influence. Other major rebellions included Zhang Shicheng who conquered Gaoyou, Chen Youliang who captured Jianghan, Ming Yuzhen who proclaimed himself King of Western Shu, Fang Guozhen who dominated the east of Zhejiang, etc. During this period of incessant turbulence and wars, Zhu Yuanzhang from Zhongli of Haozhou (present-day Fengyang in Anhui Province) seized the opportunity to conquer Nanjing. Taking it as his operational base, he finally overthrew the Yuan Dynasty, reunified China and established the Ming Dynasty.
