Sui Dynasty (581-618)

Sui Dynasty (581-618)

In 581, Yang Jian, in lineal female descent from the Wei emperors, founds the Sui Dynasty. In 589, he succeeds in reunifying all of China. Huge constructions such as the one of the grandiose capital of Chang'an (Xi'an), the opening of the Grand Canal linking Huanghe and Chang Jiang (Yangzijiang) and disastrous military campaigns led to the fall of the Sui Dynasty.
