“No other system of government on earth ruled for so long and over so many people as the empire of China. From 221 BC, when the Qin ruler Shi Huangdi crushed his rivals to take supreme power as emperor, until AD 1912, when the faltering Manchu dynasty collapsed in revolutionary chaos, 157 emperors sat on the ‘Dragon Throne’ of imperial China.”
