Qin dynasty

  1. 1.                  Qin's Importance Dynasty: a succession of people belonging to the same family, who, through  various means and forms maintain power, influence or authority over the course of  generations.     During the Qin Dynasty, warring sections of what we now call  China were unified for the first time. Writing, measurements,  weights, currency and cart axels were all standardized, and  privately-owned weapons were banned. This, along with Shi  Huang's constant watch over the people, created unity and  prevented uprisings. Later dynasties followed a similar style of  rule.
