Han Dynasty[]

The Han Dynasty was one of the longest of China’s major dynasties. In terms of power and prestige, the Han Dynasty in the East rivalled its almost contemporary Roman Empire in the West. With only minor interruptions it lasted a span of over four centuries and was considered a golden age in Chinese history especially in arts, politics and technology. All subsequent Chinese dynasties looked back to the Han period as an inspiring model of a united empire and self-perpetuating government.


Emperor Wu of Han ruled China as the seventh emperor of Han Dynasty, from 141 BC to 87 BC. He became famous for his accomplishments that gained China new and vast territories. Under his reign, he organized a powerful and highly centralized state. Chinese history regarded him as the greatest Han emperor, and one of the greatest ever in the history of China. His exploits and very effective governance earned ancient China as being one of the most powerful nations in the world.

Dawn of Man[]

"May the auspices of Heaven bring you power and wisdom, O' great Emperor Wu. Beginning your 54 year-long reign in 141 BC, you would rise to become one of China's greatest emperors. Rejecting the weaknesses of the Taoist Wu wei philosophy, you swiftly adopted a model of governance in which the emperor and state were paramount and absolute. Wisdom and virtue, not title and wealth, brought your rule glory, and you put it to the work of expanding China's territory like never before.

Introduction: "Kowtow in my presence. I am Emperor Wu of Han. You may leave your tribute at my feet."

Defeat: "Conspirators everywhere. You win only by betraying good ethics."
