    Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms (Traditional Chinese: 五代十國; Simplified Chinese: 五代十国; pinyin: Wǔdàishíguó, 907-960) was a period of political upheaval in China, between the Tang Dynasty and Song Dynasty. During this period, five dynasties succeeded each other in rapid succession in the north, and more than a dozen independent states, mainly in the south, were established, though only ten of them are traditionally listed, hence giving rise to the name "Ten Kingdoms." (Some historians, including Bo Yang, count 11 – not including Northern Han (as it is an extension of the Later Han Dynasty) and including Yan and Qi in the list.)

    [edit] Setting the stage

    The period was a direct result of the political disintegration at the end of the Tang Dynasty, which saw power shifting away from the imperial government and into the hands of regional military governors (jiedushi). The Huang Chao Rebellion (875-884) also dealt a severe blow to the authority of the central government. By the early 10th century, the central government held little power over powerful jiedushi, who were de facto independent. Important jiedushi at this point included:

    North China

    South China

    [edit] The North

    [edit] Later Liang Dynasty

    Main article: Later Liang Dynasty

    Zhu Wen was the most powerful warlord at the time in North China. Originally a member of Huang Chao's rebel army, he surrendered to the Tang Dynasty and was crucial in suppressing the rebellion. For this he was given the title of Xuanwu Jiedushi. Within a few years he had consolidated his power by destroying his neighbours, and was able to force a move of the imperial capital to Luoyang (in modern Henan province) within his power base. In 904 he had the Emperor Zhaozong killed and put his 13-year-old son on the throne as a puppet ruler. Three years later, in 907, he induced the boy emperor to abdicate in his favour. He then proclaimed the founding of the Later Liang Dynasty, with himself as emperor. After, his son Zhū Zhèn (朱瑱) ruled. But Zhū Zhèn was considered a cowardly man who disliked responsibility, and to avoid kingship he left Later Liang under no control so that he may pursue the life of a monk. After his men 'bought' him back from the monks he soon left for the monkhood again, an occurrence which repeated itself three times in a row.

    [edit] Later Tang Dynasty

    Main article: Later Tang Dynasty

    By now, many of his rival warlords had also declared their own independent regimes, and not all of them recognized the new dynasty as overlord. In particular, Li Cunxu and Liu Shouguang opposed the new regime, and fought it for control of North China. Li Cunxu, a Shatuo Turk, was particularly successful. After defeating in 915 Liu Shouguang (who had proclaimed a Yan Empire in 911), Li Cunxu declared himself emperor in 923 and, within a few months, swept away the Later Liang regime, replacing it with the Later Tang Dynasty, and creating the first in what would become a long line of Conquest Dynasties. Under him, much of North China was reunified again, and in 925 he was able to conquer Former Shu, a regime that had been set up in Sichuan.

    [edit] Later Jin Dynasty

    Main article: Later Jin Dynasty

    The Later Tang Dynasty oversaw a few years of relative calm. Soon, however, unrest began to brew once again. In 934 Sichuan once again became independent as the Later Shu regime. In 936, Shi Jingtang, another Shatuo Turk, who was a jiedushi based in Taiyuan, rebelled with the help of the Khitan Empire of Manchuria. In return for their help, Shi Jingtang promised the Khitans 16 prefectures in the Youyun area (modern northern Hebei province and Beijing) and annual tribute. The rebellion succeeded, and Shi Jingtang became emperor of the Later Jin Dynasty in that same year.

    After the founding of Later Jin, the Khitans increasingly began to view Later Jin as their proxy in China proper. In 943 they decided to take the land for themselves, and within three years had swept into the capital at Kaifeng, ending the Later Jin dynasty. However, they were unable (or unwilling) to hold onto the vast areas of China proper that they had conquered, and retreated early in the next year.

    [edit] Later Han Dynasty

    To fill this void, a jiedushi named Liu Zhiyuan entered the imperial capital in 947, proclaiming the Later Han Dynasty, establishing a third successive Shatuo Turk dynasty. This was the most short-lived of the 5 dynasties, as a coup in 951 led to the enthronement of General Guo Wei, a Han Chinese, and the beginning of the Later Zhou Dynasty. However, Liu Chong, a member of the Later Han imperial family, set up the rival Northern Han regime in Taiyuan, and sought Khitan help to defeat Later Zhou.

    [edit] Later Zhou Dynasty

    Main article: Later Zhou Dynasty

    After the death of Guo Wei in 951, his adopted son Chai Rong succeeded the throne and began to pursue a policy of expansion and reunification. In 954 he defeated combined Khitan and Northern Han forces, ending their hopes of destroying Later Zhou. Between 956 and 958 Later Zhou dealt severe defeats to Southern Tang, the most powerful regime in South China, forcing them to cede all territory north of the Yangtze River. In 959 Chai Rong attacked the Khitan Empire in a bid to recover the territories ceded during the Later Jin Dynasty, and scored several victories before succumbing to illness.

    In 960, the general Zhao Kuangyin staged a coup and took the throne for himself, founding the Northern Song Dynasty. This marks the official end of the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms period. Over the next two decades, Zhao Kuangyin and his successor Zhao Kuangyi defeated all of the other remaining regimes in China proper, conquering Northern Han in 979 and reunifying China completely by 982.

    [edit] Northern Han

    Main article: Northern Han

    While counted as one of the ten kingdoms, the Northern Han was in the north and was based in the traditional Shatuo Turk stronghold of Shanxi. It was created after the last of the three dynasties set up by Shatuo Turks fell to the Han governed Later Zhou Dynasty in 951. With the protection of the powerful Khitan Liao empire, the Northern Han were able to maintain nominal independence until the Song Dynasty were finally successful in wresting it from the protective arms of the Khitan in 979.

    [edit] The South

    Unlike North China, where dynasties succeeded each other in rapid succession, the regimes of South China existed more or less concurrently and each held on to a specific geographical area.

    • Wuyue (907-978): The Kingdom of Wuyue was the longest-lived and among the most powerful of the southern states. It was founded by Qian Liu who set up his capital at Xifu (modern-day Hangzhou). It was based mostly in modern Zhejiang province but also held parts of southern Jiangsu. Qian Liu was named the Prince of Yue by the Tang emperor in 902, with the Prince of Wu being added in 904. On the fall of the Tang Dynasty in 907, he declared himself king of Wuyue. Wuyue survived until the eighteenth year of the Song Dynasty when Qian Shu surrendered to the expanding dynasty. Wuyue was known for its learning and culture.
    • Min (909-945): The Kingdom of Min was founded by Wang Shenzhi named himself the Prince of Min in 909 following the fall of the Tang Dynasty. It was not until his son formally declared himself the Emperor of Min in 933 what Shenzhi was posthumously named as the founding emperor. It was located in Fujian with its capital at Changle (present-day Fuzhou). One of Shenzhi’s sons proclaimed the independent state of Yin in the northeast of Min territory. The Southern Tang took that territory after the Min asked for help. Despite declaring loyalty to the neighboring Wuyue, the Southern Tang finished its conquest of Min in 945.
    • Jingnan (also known as Nanping) (924-963): The smallest of the southern states, it was founded by Gao Jichang in 924. It was based in Jiangling and held two other districts southwest of present-day Wuhan in Hubei. Gao was in the service of the Later Liang Dynasty (the successor of the Tang Dynasty in northern China.) Gao’s successors claimed the title of King of Nanping following the fall of the Later Liang in 924. It was a small and weak kingdom, and thus tried to maintain good relations with each of the Five Dynasties. The kingdom fell to advancing armies of the Song Dynasty in 963.
    • Former Shu (907)-(925): The Kingdom of Shu was founded in 907 with the fall of the Tang Dynasty by Wang Jian, who held his court in Chengdu. The kingdom held most of present-day Sichuan along with parts of southern Gansu and Shaanxi in addition to western Hebei. Wang was named military governor of Western Sichuan by the Tang court in 891. The kingdom fell when his incompetent son surrendered in the face of an advance by the Later Tang Dynasty in 925.
    • Later Shu (935-965): The Later Shu is essential a resurrection of the previous Shu state that ha fallen a decade early to the Later Tang Dynasty. As the Later Tang was in decline, Meng Zhixiang found the opportunity to reassert Shu’s independence. As with the Former Shu, the capital was at Chengdu and it basically controlled the same territory as its predecessor. The kingdom was ruled well until forced to succumb to Northern Song armies in 965.
    • Southern Tang (937)-(975): The Southern Tang was the successor state of Wu as Li Bian took the state over from within in 937. Expanding from the original domains of Wu, it eventually took over Yin, Min, and Chu, holding present-day southern Anhui, southern Jiangsu, much of Jiangxi, Hunan, and eastern Hubei at its height. The kingdom became nominally subordinate to the expanding Song Dynasty in 961 and was invaded outright in 975, when it was formally absorbed into the Song Dynasty.

    Although more stable than North China as a whole, South China was also torn apart by warfare. Wu quarrelled with her neighbours, a trend that continued as Wu was replaced with Southern Tang. In the 940's Min and Chu underwent internal crises which Southern Tang handily took advantage of, destroying Min in 945 and Chu in 951. (Remnants of Min and Chu, however, survived in the form of Qingyuan Jiedushi and Wuping Jiedushi for many years after.) With this, Southern Tang became the undisputedly most powerful regime of Southern China. However, it was unable to defeat incursions by the Later Zhou Dynasty between 956 and 958, and ceded away all of its land north of the Yangtze River.

    The Northern Song Dynasty, established in 960, was determined to reunify China. Jingnan and Wuping were swept away in 963, Later Shu in 965, Southern Han in 971, Southern Tang in 975. Finally, Wuyue and Qingyuan gave up their land to Northern Song in 978, bringing all of South China into the control of the central government.
