1800's: Qing dynasty ends Key Events Zheng He led seven voyages around the Indian ocean as far as Africa between 1405 and 1433. Zheng sailed with huge fleets as many as 300 ships, these fleets included trading ship called junks as well as immense treasure ships, each about 400 feet long. After 1433, however a new emperor stopped the overseas voyages. Ming Sea Voyages The policy to end the voyages was part of a move in Ming China toward isolation from the outside world; Ming heavily restricted foreign trade and travel to limit outside contacts. The arrival of the European traders and Christian missionaries in the 1500s was the reason for the Ming emperors’ to isolate China. Foreign merchants were allowed to trade only at a few Chinese ports, such as canton, and only during certain times. Ming Foreign Relations Ming improved methods of irrigation increased farm production, and peasants produced huge crops of rice in the southern river valleys. New crops from the Americas, such as corn and sweet potatoes, reached china in 1500s and increased farm output. Industries such as the manufacture of porcelain and silk expanded in response to a growing European demand for Chinese goods. Ming Economy & Society The late 1500s, the Ming dynasty began to decline; several weak rulers took the throne, and under their rule corruption increased. Ming rulers raised taxes high to combined with crop failures in the 1600s that led to famine and hardship. As Ming china weakened the Manchuria swept into Beijing and took the capital in 1644. The Manchu then formed their own dynasty and gave it a Chinese name-Qing. Ming Decline The Qing dynasty which ruled from 1644 to 1911, became the last dynasty in 3,500 years of imperial rule in china. To win the support of the Chinese, the Manchu showed respect for Chinese custom and maintained there traditions. Manchu were not allowed to marry Chinese, and Manchu women were forbidden to bind their feet as Chinese women did. Qing china flourished under two outstanding emperors: Kangxi and his grandson Qianlong.
Qianlong continued the Ming policy of isolation and restricting foreign trade. Dutch began a thriving trade in Chinese goods. Dutch traders obtained Chinese porcelain and silk along with a new good tea, which became the main Chinese export to Europe. In 1793 a British official, lord George Macartney, came to china to discuss expanding trade. The Chinese found the British goods that he had brought inferior to there own products. The Chinese demanded respect from Macartney by kneeling in front of the emperor, Macartney refused and the Chinese sent him away. In 1800s European efforts to open china’s closed society would eventually topple the Qing dynasty- and imperial rule. Qing Dynasty & Foreign Rule Question Time! Hongwu:
