  CHINA: THE THREE EMPERORS, 1662-1795: The Kangxi Emperor (r. 1662–1722)
The young Emperor – on the throne since the age of seven and effectively in control from the age of fifteen – went about the task of shaping the future of his immense territory by acquiring a clear understanding of every subject that mattered.
The Kangxi Emperor’s six inspection tours to southern China sent impressive signals throughout the empire of his vitality, personal commitment and imperial splendour, and at the same time made him familiar with regions with a different geology, climate, culture and history.
One of the Kangxi Emperor’s greatest contributions to the arts was the establishment of additional imperial workshops in the Forbidden City itself.

 Qing Dynasty at AllExperts
China's income fell sharply during the wars as vast areas of farmland were destroyed, millions of lives lost, and countless armies raised and equipped to fight the rebels.
During the Qianlong Emperor's reign, for example, members of his family were distinguished by garments with a large circular emblem on the back, whereas a Han could only hope to wear clothing with a square emblem; this meant effectively that any guard in the court could immediately distinguish family members from the back view alone.
China's turbulent history since the overthrow of the Qing may be understood at least in part as an attempt to understand and recover significant aspects of historic Chinese culture and integrate them with influential new ideas that have emerged within the last century.
