The family that founded the Ming dynasty, which ended in 1644, may have been wiped out during the Great Leap Forward, but their legacy lives on in the descendants of Ming-era rulers and their descendants.
The Ming dynasty is a keystone in the history of China, but the story of its demise was left untold by the Communist Party, which censored and suppressed it during the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s and 70s.
In the 1950s, when the Qing dynasty began, the country’s history was preserved, but by the 1990s the legacy had been largely erased.
But it’s a legacy that has not gone unnoticed by Chinese intellectuals and scholars.
A few years ago, the Chinese government established a museum to commemorate the Ming and Qing dynasties, the Ming Dynasty Museum in Dalian, China, which opened in 2018.
It was funded by the State Council of Historical Research, the state-run body that manages the archives of the ruling Qing dynasty.
The museum will house artifacts, documents and videos from the Ming era, as well as materials from the Qing era.
In addition to materials about the Ming, it will feature films about the Qing period.
The Museum’s director, Jin Yu, told the Washington Post that the Ming period has been “one of the most misunderstood periods in Chinese history.”
He added, “It’s the most difficult period for Chinese people, because it’s the period when we were still living as people in China.”
Jin Yu said the museum’s mission is to help people understand the history and the legacy of the Ming-Sino War.
The war broke out in 1645, in what became known as the Great Rebellion, when an anti-foreigner uprising in the capital, Beijing, left more than 150,000 dead.
The Qing government responded by seizing the capital and annexing much of the rest of the country.
The Qing-Ming war was a political, military and social catastrophe for China.
It also marked the beginning of a period of turmoil in the Chinese nation.
Many Chinese, including many academics, scholars and journalists, believe the war was triggered by the Cultural and Philosophical Revolution of 1876, the period that began under the leadership of Mao Zedong.
In the 1960’s, the United States sought to intervene in the war to protect its economic interests.
This led to the overthrow of the Qing-Sinian Qing dynasty, and the establishment of the People’s Republic of China.
As the war ended, the Qing empire was destroyed.
After the war, the former imperial capital, Nanjing, was renamed Beijing.
