Qin Dynasty Ends
By 210 B.C., the peasants were tired of being forced to build one project after another for their emperor. The noblemen were upset that their power had been taken away, and the scholars were upset at the emperor, who had ordered all the books to be burned.
In 207 B.C., a military leader by the name of Liu Bang was able to overthrow the Qin, establishing himself as the new emperor of China.
