Chinese History - Northern Wei Dynasty (www.chinaknowledge.org) (285 words)
After hundred and thirty years of foreign rule by various tribes over northern China, the period of the Sixteen Kingdoms, the chieftains of the Tuoba 拓跋 clan of the Xianbei 鮮卑 ethnicity were able to unite the northern part of China.
A powerful instrument for the Northern Wei rulers - as they were called later - was Buddhism, as the emperor was seen as a living incarnation of the ruling Buddha.
The result of this almost twohundred year long period was the gradual reconstruction of the northern economy and the homogenization of the Chinese with the Non-Chinese population.
