Chinese Dynasties &


Chronology of Dynasties

A fairly extensive list of Chinese dynasties and emperors for nearly five centuries are given in both Chinese and English.

The dynasties are listed in chronological order.

Due to the fact that not all computers are capable of reading Chinese fonts, several versions of the lists are given.

If your computer is not equipped to read Chinese, choose the [pdf] or [gif] versions.

Choose [utf-8], [big5] or [GB] versions if you have the respective Chinese fonts. (If you are using the current version of Windows or MAC OS-x, then your operating system can read Chinese!!!)
