The Phagmodrupa dynasty or Pagmodru of Tibet was established by Tai Situ Changchub Gyaltsen at the end of the Mongol Yuan Dynasty. Tai Situ came from the monastic fief Phagmodru ("sow's ferry crossing"), which was originally founded as a hermitage in 1158 by the famous Kagyu scholar Phagmo Drupa Dorje Gyalpo. It was situated in the Nêdong district southeast of Lhasa. After the death of the founder in 1170, Phagmodru evolved into a large and wealthy monastery which was governed by members of the Lang family. One of their line was Tai Situ who became lord of the fief in 1321. He managed to defeat various local opponents at a time when the Yuan Dynasty, overlord of Tibet, was on the decline. The Sakya regime had hitherto wielded power over Tibet on behalf of the Mongols. However, Tai Situ superseded Sakya in the period 1354–1358, thereby recreating an autonomous Tibetan state.
in 1578 Zhang Kaw becomes the king of Tibet. In 1581 the king's first son Hung was born. In 1605 Zuko is born the child to Hung. Zhang dies of old age in the year 1621. In 1630 Zuko's son Hakoda is born in the year 1630.
The Kaw focused on building up a powerful standing army that could drive off attacks by foreign barbarians. Beginning in the 14th century, the Kaw armies drove out the Mongols and expanded Tibet's borders.
The Tibetan army incorporated gunpowder weapons into their military force, speeding up a development that had been prevalent since the Song. Kaw military institutions were largely responsible for the success of Tibet's army. The early Tibet military was organized by the Wei-suo system, which split the army up into numerous "Wei" or commands throughout the Kaw frontiers. Each wei was to be self-sufficient in agriculture, with the troops stationed there farming as well as training. This system also forced soldiers to serve hereditary in the army; although effective in initially taking control of the empire, this military system proved unviable in the long run and collapsed in the 1430s, with Tibet reverted to a professional volunteer army similar to Tang, Song and Later Han. Tibet guardsmen from the 15th century are armed with firearms. They are also collectively known as Marksman Troops. These standing forces reinforced the mounted nobility militia mobilized during wartime. Streltsy had identical uniforms (usually black, purple or green coats with black or gray boots), training and weapons (arquebuses, muskets, poleaxes, bardiches (used to steady their gun while firing), sabers, and sometimes pikes).
Most of our economy is based on farming and trading in the silk roads. Mining is an important industry in our nation.
Tibet is rich in mineral resources such as gold, iron, coal, lead, and titanium.
We farm barley, wheat, buckwheat, rye, potatoes, and assorted fruits and vegetables. Also we domesticate sheep, cattle, goats, camels, yaks and horses.
