Lord Of Chang An

Chengjiao, titled Lord of Chang'an, was Qin Shi Huang's legitimate half-brother from a different mother. After Zhao Zheng inherited the title of King of Qin from his father, he rebelled at Tunliu and surrendered to the State of Zhao. King Daoxiang of Zhao granted him the territory of Rao (饒; modern Raoyang County, Hebei).

 

Qin DYNASTY, 255 - 206 BC

Qin existed as a feudal state under the Zhou since before 1000 BC, casting coins (currently listed under Zhou) from about 400 BC.

Traditionally we refer to the Qin Dynasty as beginning in 255 BC when the Ch'in conquered the Zhou. Some date it to 221 BC when they finished unifying China (note this unified China was much smaller than the China we know today), but the Ch'in themselves probably would have used a date of about 325 BC when Duke Hsuan Wen adopted the title of Emperor after defeating the state of Wen and withdrew Ch'in allegiance to the Zhou.
