The Qing Dynasty or known colloquially as either Imperial China, or Great Qing, is a sovereign nation encompassed to the north of Russia, to the south of Indochina, British Raj, and Nepal. The nation was the last Chinese dynasty in Chinese history.
Traditionally, the great Qing empire had a lot of cultural influence across the Asian continent, as its succeeding state built monuments dedicated to the monarchs of the Qing dynasty.
The military was subsequent of the Qing Army, which included naval ships, modernized in the 1800's and the artillery guns. The armed forces swore allegiance to the great Dynasty in hopes for the future of the Dynasty.
The 1800 War saw the Qing Dynasty fall under a revolution of Chinese republicans, which were aided by the British, Spanish, American, and Portuguese armies. However, the Qing Dynasty did have allies, like the 1st French Empire, and independence armies from nations stuck in British hands.
The 1800's was a rough ride for Qingi generals, as the military was undergoing strengthening, because of fundamental reasons. The emperor was paranoid about the Russian Empire looming over them, so the emperor sent out troops to militarize the Manchurian borders within Russia.
Meanwhile, some troops had to be pulled off the border because of a uprising inside the Dynasty, which was nicknamed the Eight Trigrams uprising of 1813, which caused internal problems inside the dynasty. The uprising ended with a Qingi victory and the emperor imprisoned the locals that played a role in the uprising.
Expansion & Wars
The expansion deep down took place when some Chinese officials stored some troops in Russian land, which indicated a war was about to break out in 1827. The War of Vladivostok started on this date due to trespassing of the Qing military to the Russian city. The war lasted for 60 days, or two months, before the Russians capitulated and the Qingi's officiated the area.
Another conflict was about to take overseas, as the British East Indian Company sold Opium to the Qingi's in exchange for a economic growth. This all ended with Lin Zexu cutting the trade off without compensation, and also confiscated the opium sold by the British, which started the Opium War, which rivaled tensions between the nations.
The war lasted a few years, ending with a decisive Qing victory over the British, under the Treaty of Nanking. Territorial changes weren't stated in the treaty, and more ports continued to be built. However, the war led to one thing: the 1800 War.
