What do you think of Quin Shi Huang Ti?

Quin Shi Huang Ti

At the age of 13 Quin Shi Huang Ti became the emperor of China. He is considered the founder of China. In his 35-year reign, he managed to create magnificent and enormous construction projects. He also caused both incredible cultural and intellectual growth, and much destruction within China.

He took care of his army very nicely. He made sure none of them and their family members go without food. He made sure that they have shelter as well. If he didn't like anybody he would take his army and army tanks right in front of their house so they could not escape.

He also had bad side. In my opinion, he was a very cruel man.  He would kill family members right in front of  another family members to make them scared of him. He made his wives drink a little poison but after they awoke he buried them alive.

He  would make someone make a clay soldier right in front of him and if they didn't he would take his sword out and chop their head off. The next person he asks the same question and he /she listens to him because they see a head on the ground.

As he entered middle age, the First Emperor grew more and more afraid of death. He became obsessed with death and started looking for finding the elixir of life, which would allow him to live forever.

Qin Shi Huang Ti viewed different views as threats to his authority, so he ordered all books not related to his reign burned in 213 B.C. The Emperor also had approximately 460 scholars buried alive in 212 for daring to disagree with him, and 700 more stoned to death. From then on, the only approved school of thought was legalism: follow the emperor's laws, or face the consequences.

Among other things he is most known for

1) The Terracotta Army:
To guard Qin Shi Huang in the afterworld, and perhaps allow him to conquer heaven as he had the earth, the emperor had a terracotta army of at least 8,000 clay soldiers placed in the tomb. The army also included terracotta horses, along with real chariots and weapons.
  • Each soldier was an individual, with unique facial features (although the bodies and limbs were mass-produced from molds).
  • 7000 clay soldiers of Chin's tomb
  • The height and uniform also vary by rank.
  • 9 sculptures are over 2200 years
  • local farmers discover the clay soldiers while digging for water.
  • over 650 horses are part of the army.
  • Its believed that the clay soldiers held real weapons.
  • emperors tomb contains simulated rivers.
  • there are many tombs that haven't been dug yet.
  • more than 200 pieces have been smashed.
  • they haven't opened Mr. Ti's tomb

This is a Movie on Quin Shi Huang Ti.

These are the photos of Quin's army  and his tomb where he and his wife got buried.

    2) The Great wall of China: 
    He ordered laborers to link together the defensive works against enemy already built by the former states. That was the forerunner of the modern Great Wall which is 5,000-kilometer long. It took 36 years and 700,000 to complete the great wall of china. It took 36 years and 700,000 to complete the great wall of china.
