  Xianyang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Xianyang (Simplified Chinese: 咸阳; Traditional Chinese: 咸陽; pinyin: Xiányáng) was the capital of the state of Qin during the Warring States Period in Chinese history, and remained to be capital during the short-lived Qin Dynasty.
It was located in the modern day Shaanxi province on the northern bank of the Wei River, on the opposite side of which Liu Bang would later build the Han Dynasty capital of Chang'an once he became emperor.
Liu Bang went on to capture Xianyang, but was forced to hand it over to another rebel leader, Xiang Yu, who's army greatly outnumbered Liu Bang's.
