Dynasties in Chinese history - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (402 words)
It should also be noted that history is rarely as neat as it is portrayed and it was rare indeed for one dynasty to end calmly and give way quickly and smoothly to a new one.
Dynasties were often established before the overthrow of an existing regime, or continued for a time after they had been defeated.
However, the Qing dynasty itself was established in 1636 (or even 1616, albeit under a different name), while the last Ming dynasty pretender was not disposed of until 1662.
