Many Chinese dynasties were very powerful and have had a profound impact on global history. Chinese civilization is one of the world’s oldest and richest continuous civilizations because of such dynasties as the Sui, Tang and Song. There were many changes that occurred effecting the social and economic life, and political structures as each dynasty was built and grew over time. Each dynasty laid the foundation for the next with changes and developments to create a new dynasty’s order and in turn making China more advance, rich and then other countries around the round. The Sui dynasty ruled for thirty-seven years, even though fourteen of those year where under an incompetent, disastrous and heartless emperor who was the main reason for its destruction. The Sui Dynasty ruled from 581 to 618, because a young boy who inherited the throne was dethrone by his own general in 581 and renamed the empire. The general’s name was Yang Jian and the dynasty was called the Sui. Yang Jian was a general from a regime in northwest China, carefully utilized and cultivated Buddhist support, and a well-planned river and land campaign and reigned from 581 to 604. Also he went on to conquer the south, so by 589, for the first time in centuries, one man ruled all of China. Yang Jian, or Emperor Wendi ( WUN-DĒ ), started to rebuild by creating a new capital, and building the Grand Canal to assist in the development of the capital. The canal helped with trades between northern and southern China. When Yang Jian died, his son Yandi was his successor who ruled from 604-618, who was suspected of murdering his father to obtain the throne and its power faster. Unfortunately, his rule was heartless, incompetent and disastrous; he went on to destroy a lot of what his father had built because he greatly mistreated his people with harsh taxes and losing millions of laborers’ lives to erect an extravagant palace, complete the Grand Canal, and rebuild the Great Wall. Yandi was murdered in 618. Yang Jian was motivated on building and reinstating connections with his new found power and influence. There were many accomplishments which caused the empire to flourished, and be adopted by other future dynasties and improve China even up to this present day. Inventions of its time, of course, the Grand Canal being a great accomplishment, improving national transportation and trade. The reconstruction of the Great Wall .Agriculture
