Eastern Ts'in Dynasty

This powerful southern Chinese empire was the refuge for thousands of refugees from the north, fleeing various barbarian invaders for the past several decades. After the Hsiung'nu sacked Lo-yang in 311, and later took Chang'an, the Han government fled south to eventually found this dynasty there, one of the "Six Dynasties."

The new capitol of Chien-k'ang (later Nanking) came to be a center for art and culture, where Buddhism flourished alongside Daoism. The nobles and landowners were, however, restless at the increase power and budget of the army. The success of the army at resisting the barbarians to the north did not ameliorate the worries of the landed aristocracy.
