Chapter Summary

This section of the book A Biographical Dictionary of Later Han to the Three Kingdoms (23-220 AD) contains 3 maps. The first map shows the Northern Steppe in 90 AD. The second map illustrates the Western regions during the Later Han period. The third map presents the Later Han Empire in 140 AD. In 9 AD, as Wang Mang took the imperial throne and proclaimed his new dynasty of Xin, he had a degree of acquiescence among the political class, not necessarily accompanied by great enthusiasm or trust. The imperial lineage of the Liu family, however, had been greatly weakened by the failure of Emperors Cheng and Ai to leave heirs, and the death of Liu Jizi, Emperor Ping, in 6 AD, meant that there were no surviving descendants of Emperor Yuan, who had died in 33 BC.

Keywords: Emperor Ping; Later Han period; Wang Mang
