  Chinese era name Information
Jianzhongjingguo (建中靖國 jian4 zhong1 jing4 guo2), the first era name of Emperor Huizong of Song China, means "establishing a happy medium and cleansing the country", reflecting his idealism towards moderating the rivalry among the conservative and progressive parties on political and social reformation.
In addition, using a particular era name was a political act implying recognition of a sovereign's right to rule, and one issue that traditional Chinese historians faced was which set of era names to use when dating a historical event.
On the mainland, era names were abolished with the adoption of the Common Era at the founding of the People's Republic in 1949.

Although in modern Japan posthumous imperial names correspond with the eras of their reign, this is a relatively recent concept, introduced in practice during the Meiji period and instituted by law in 1979.
Therefore, the posthumous names of the emperors and empresses who reigned prior to 1868 may not be taken as era names by themselves.
