Chinese era name (704 words)
Han Wudi[?] was conventionally regarded as the first emperor to declare a nian hao; however he was only the first to use a nian hao in every year of his reign.
Han Wudi changed mottos every five years or so, going through a total of eleven slogans during his reign from 140 BC to 87 BC.
Thus 344 AD was the second year of Jianyuan of Jin Dynasty (or of Jin Kangdi) whereas 139 BC was the second year of Jianyuan of Han Dynasty (or of Han Wudi).
