In 1625, Nurhachi proclaimed himself “Emperor” and established his capital in present-day Mukden, adopted Han system of civil administration, and succeeded by one of his sons when he died in 1626. The Six Ministries and Censorate were established in 1631 and Han scholar-officials were appointed to highest positions in administration and army. 2_ The Creation and Power of the Qing Empire 1636: The proclamation of the Qing (Ch’ing [Clear]) Dynasty at Mukden setting the stage for the conquest of Ming Zhongguo. 1644: Beijing captured by Manchus and made capital of the Qing Dynasty Rebellions broke out in north China in 1630’s, and in 1644 the rebel army of Li Tzu-ch’eng captured Beijing.
