The song dynasty started 960 C.E with the founder of
the song dynasty the Emperor Taizu.

 

It was located in China it was being ruled by Taizu
until the time got there it split into

 

two periods the Northern Song and Southern Song. The
northern ruled more and they

 

were located in their Capital in Kaifeng. Until they
got invaded by Jin, so they needed to

 

move their capital to Hangzhou.

 

The state couldn’t move with political problems after
a year with great economic wealth

 

until they faced a bigger problem then what they had
in the past the Mongol empire hit

 

they with a great invasión and the song empire
collapsed in 1279 C.E.

 

 

Foundation:

 

(The song dynasty was, thus, founded by the Later Zhou
general Zhao Kuangyin

 

(927-976 CE) who was endorsed as emperor by the army
in 960 CE? His reign title would

 

be Taizu (‘Grand Progenitor’). Making sure no rival
general ever became too powerful and

 

gained the necessary support to take his throne, the
emperor introduced a system of

 

rotation of army leaders and swept away all
opposition. Further, he ensured that the civil

 

service henceforth enjoyed a higher status than the
army acting as their supervisory

 

body.

 

Taizu was succeeded by his younger brother, Emperor
Taizong (‘Grand Ancestor’), who

 

reigned from 976 to 997 CE. The stability provided by
the long reigns of the first two

 

emperors (at least compared to the chaotic previous
centuries) gave the Song dynasty the

 

start it needed to become one of the most successful
in China’s history.)
