Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ming Palace in Nanjing, present day Jiangsu province, China was the 14th century imperial palace of early Ming Dynasty. Zhu Yuanzhang, who was to later crown himself the Emperor of the Ming Dynasty, began building a palace in what was then Jiankang in 1367. At the time, he was self-styled "King of Wu." The palace was built outside the existing city of Jiankang, and was completed by 1368, when Zhu proclaimed the Ming Dynasty with himself as the first emperor and Jiankang, now Yingtian, as the "southern capital," or "Nanjing," of his empire. For the next few years, few changes were made to the palace in Nanjing as the Emperor focused on building the "middle capital," located in his home town, Fengyang.show more
