  Encyclopedia: Spring and Autumn Period
The Battle of Chengpu (城濮之戰) was a conflict between the states of Jin against Chu and its allies in China in 632 BC during the Spring and Autumn Period.
The Warring States Period officially started in 403 BC when the three remaining elite families in Jin - Zhao, Wei and Han - partitioned the state; the impotent Zhou court was forced to recognized their authority.
Duke Mu (穆公) (died 621 BC), born Ying Renhao (嬴任好), was a ruler of the State of Qin from 659 or 660 to 621 BC in China.

 Samhan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Samhan period is usually reckoned to begin around the time of the fall of Wiman Joseon in 108 BC, coinciding with the decline of the Jin state, and to continue through the third century CE, around which time the Three Kingdoms period begins.
The name of the poorly understood Jin state continued to be used in the name of the Jinhan confederacy and in the name "Byeonjin," an alternate term for Byeonhan.
The minor states which made up the federations are usually considered to have covered about as much land as a modern-day myeon, or township.

The state of Wu straddled the mouth of the Yangtze River (Chang Jiang) east of the State of Chu.
In 584 BC, Wu invaded the State of Yan and rebelled against the State of Chu; the later action occurred after being persuaded by Wuchen, a minister of the State of Jin who defected from Chu.
Ironically, Wu was later threatened by an upstart state to its south, the State of Yue; the State of Chu aided Yue's rise to power as a counter to Wu.

Jin, a fellow at JILA (a collaboration between the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the University of Colorado at Boulder), has pushed potassium atoms into behaving strangely.
Jin's field took off in 1995 after two of her now colleagues produced a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC), a gas cooled to less than 100 billionths of a degree above zero.
Jin's accomplishments are particularly remarkable because she was not trained in the area of physics in which she has excelled: she had neither the technical expertise needed for BEC work nor the background.

In 1999 Jin and her then graduate student Brian DeMarco made a degenerate Fermi gas, which means they persuaded fermions to stack up in the lowest quantum states, one per state.
Jin figured she could use one type of atom--the fermion potassium 40--and put it in two spin states.
The pairing of the fermions was strong enough, Jin adds, so that "I think it tells you that it is possible to have room-temperature superconductors." Although the competition is fierce and travel often takes Jin away from her young daughter, she revels in the quantum world: "It is not intuitive.

The warlord state, however, was sufficiently well established that it survived the immediate crisis, and Sun Quan swiftly established his authority in the territory his brother had left him.
If the state of Wu was based upon the military achievement of one local family and its supporters, the claimant empire of Shu-Han in the west was the work of an itinerant warlord entrepreneur, and the soldiers of fortune who accepted his leadership.
Though Jin now controlled the Sichuan basin, the years of bitter conflict against Shu-Han, and the hostility that remained among the defeated enemy, meant the resources of that region could hardly be mobilised quickly, and the strategic defences of Wu along the Yangzi appeared secure.

In the south, along the Yangzi River, the state of Chu was growing rapidly and beginning to venture northward.
Around 475 B.C., four powerful states (Qi, Jin, Qin, and Chu) stood on the periphery of the Zhou heartland, and were poised to assume leadership.
Jin was subsequently divided and, for a while, the contest seemed to be between the successor states to the Jin and the Chu state to the south.

In 403 BC, the three major families of Jin, with the approval of the Zhou king, partition Jin into three states (三家分晉): the State of Han, the State of Zhao, and the State of Wei.
The State of Jin continued to exist with a tiny piece of territory until 376 BC when the rest of the territory was partitioned by the Three Jins.
Early in the Warring States Period, Chu was one of the strongest states in China.

Particularly remarkable have been the recent discoveries from the states of Yan, Jin and Zhongshan, all of which were located on the periphery of the central Zhou realm.
Thus, the development of Jin during the Western Zhou period has, until recently, remained obscure, restricting our understanding of how and why the state of Jin became one of the most powerful states in the Spring and Autumn period.
Instead, I assume that the relationship between Jin and Zhou, and, if any, its transition, will be the most important clue to understanding the nature of the state of Jin as well as the impetus for its development into the acknowledged hegemony.

Different states led the northern alliance at different times; as time went by, direct Chou successors were displaced by larger, less "Chinese" peripheral powers in the alliance headship, with its prerogatives: to call meetings; to mediate and arbitrate disputes; to authorize or undertake intervention (Walker, 79, 87-89).
During this period, the small northern state of Jin (Chin), having recovered from the paralysis of sixty years of civil war, subjugated all its 7 or 8 small neighbors, establishing itself as a local hegemon on the north side of the Yellow River in a series of campaigns 669-652M.
The state of Wiman Choson (Chao Hsien), in Northwest Korea and Southeast Manchuria, was founded between 194 and 180 BC by a Chinese refugee, one Wiman, who seized the pre-existing Ko-choson state.

The Warring States Period, in contrast to the Spring and Autumn Period, was a period when regional warlords annexed smaller states around them and consolidated their rule.
These Seven Warring States (戰國七雄/战国七雄 Zhànguó QÄ«xióng, literally "Seven Heroes among the Warring States"), were the Qi (齊), the Chu (楚), the Yan (燕), the Han (韓), the Zhao (趙), the Wei (魏) and the Qin (秦).

Master Kuang, otherwise known as Ziye, was a famous musician from Jin, one of the states so named during the Spring and Autumn Period in China's history, from 770-476 B.C. The highest-ranking musicians during that era were generally given the title of "Shi" (Master).
He often called himself a "blind official." It is said that when Master Kuang played music, horses would stop eating grass and lift up their heads to listen; birds would stop flying and listen attentively, with their heads held high, and would drop the food in their mouth in fascination.
Citizens in the neighboring states saw this and said, "Jin is a state that you cannot take lightly, for even a musician can guide the future of a state by playing the strings.
