The history of the Qin Dynasty is quite interesting. They started off as a small state in Western China, governed by King Qin Shi Huang. As the Zhou Dynasty fell, the Seven states that were left fought a war (The Warring States) between themselves to take control of China. After all the fighting was over, the Qin District took control of all of China. After Qin Shi Huang became emperor, he started construction on the Great Wall of China. This was to protect China's Northern Boarders from invading Mongol Armies. This is only the beginning of the Qin Dynasty's amazing history.
