The Tang Dynasty has left legacies that remained until the end of imperial China. Founded after the victory of Li Yuan, who became the first Emperor of the Tang. He soon would fall to his son Li Shimin, known as Taozong who quickly introduced many reforms. Expanding massively and increasing export, the Golden Age of China would beginn. But the fall would follow soon after the great rise of the Chinese Empire. Following a short interregnum by the first and only female Empress Wu Zetian, the beginning of the Second Tang Dynasty would at the same time usher the end of this influential period. All about the rise and fall of this dynasty now on IT'S HISTORY.
