Alternative History

Instead of the Tang, a new dynasty in China replaced the Sui Dynasty. Emperor Zheng Dai La Da and his five sons start to take over all of Asia, Eastern Northeastern Africa, Scandinavia, Siberia, Russia, Madagascar and its surrounding islands, Balkan States and Greece, Eastern Europe, Germany, Netherlands, Eastern and North East and South East France, Burgundy, North Africa, East Africa, North, West Africa, Scandinavia, South Scotland, North Ireland, Mexico, Alaska, West North America, Caribbean Islands, Central America, North, West and Southern South America, Iceland and Greenland, Switzerland, Northern Italy, Eastern Italy, South Spain, North East Spain, parts of South Africa, and East Central Italy (next to Rome). China then became a world power by this and became wealthy.

Zheng Becomes Emperor[]

An Lushan, the engineer of the An Shi Rebellion, is suspected of treason by Yang Guozhong, a Tang official. Yang Guozhong convinces the Tang emperor to have a spy become close to An Lushan. The spy eventually gets information about the planned rebellion, and An Lushan is executed. Although there are scattered small-scale rebellions during times of drought, the An Shi Rebellion never takes place. Zheng Emperor in 618 became emperor and ended the Sui Dynasty. Zheng Dai La Da in age 13 then set up the Zheng Dynasty and starts to take over the world.

Zheng's Reasons For An Empire[]

The abrupt end of the Tang Dynasty would come about through Zheng Dai La Da, an able soldier and Confucian scholar from Henan, who would capture the emperor and start his own dynasty. Stationed in Hebei and witnessing attacks from barbarians, he urged the Tang emperor to take measures to beat back the attacking hordes. He said that the citizens were lazy and used to a good life at the expense of defending the country. The Tang Emperor, however, did not do anything about the situation, as he felt that stability was good and that further excursions were unnecessary. Zheng Huozi and his crew then used this as a pretext to stage a coup and become emperor, jailing the last Tang Emperor for failing the Mandate of Heaven. With Zheng in charge, the Zheng Dynasty (征朝) began its nearly 950 year run. he had borrowed the samurai and other military units from countries.

Secretly, Zheng had not only wanted to conquer the barbarians (consisting mostly of Mongol, Turkic, and Tungusic tribes), but also wanted China to have an outlet into the Western Ocean - that is, the Indian Ocean - both for trading purposes, and also simply for a great show of empire building. Zheng began procuring and training people to be soldiers, including the teaching of barbarian skills such as fighting while horse riding. By 618, Zheng China had by far the largest military in the world and on the tenth year of the Emperor's rule, he started a war of subjugation that would eventually encompass much of Asia. Also, he wanted to create the world's largest empire that covered 1/2 of the world's land surface.

Northern Campaigns[]

The Great Chinese army (with soldiers like the Muslims, Japanese, Romans, Byzantines, and Europeans have) in 169 first swept through the north defeating such groups as the Uyghurs, Kyrgyz, Jurchens, Mongols. In less than 1 month, these gains came to include much of OTL Southwestern Russia. The ethnic groups under Chinese control began to be "civilized" forcefully, with laws against speaking their languages and performing their traditional rituals in public. These barbarian tribes were relocated into towns, and would eventually lose their nomadic spirit, as well as their languages and culture. For example, by the year 1300, only their languages were preserved.

Zheng then invaded all of Russia and Scandinavia. The two nations were too weak that the armies were quickly defeated in 2 hours. Then, the two nations became part of the empire.

Emperor of the East[]

Zheng in 1610 wanted to control the Far East. Zheng went to hapan 5 months earlier before that to become shogon of Japan. Hokkaido had been captured without a fight, and the Chinese went south. There, Zheng became emperor of all the remaining Far East Kingdoms. Soon, the dream quickly cam true.

The Pacific and Australia[]

Zheng 6 days later then discovered the pacific islands. The mighty armies wiped out whole tribes. Soon, hey claimed it for their empire. Zheng also explored Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand, which exoctic species were bought back to the zoos and wiped out the Aborignes and Maoris. Soon, China mastered the entire Pacific. Aluetian Islands were also seized.

Western and Egyptian Campaigns[]

In 621, there was a tremendous attack upon the Zheng Dynasty by Muslim Arabian tribes. The assumed reason was that the border of the Chinese Empire lay just north of Medina, one of the Holiest cities of Islam. The Arabians, angry about the overthrow of the Abassid Caliphate and unwilling to let Godless heathens into their religious cities, even for trade, outright refused the visits of emissaries from China. This also angered the Chinese Emperor, who was used to being shown respect. During the early 621s, China also apparently received word that the Fatimid Caliphate was giving weapons to the Arab tribes (although there was no conclusive proof that it was the Fatimid government's own doing). However, when in 1036, a massive well-armed force broke through the Chinese Empire's border towards Baghdad, both the Arabians and the Fatimids in Egypt were put in the crosshairs of Chinese fury. The new emperor felt that he needed to prove himself by showing great force towards his opponents, and this was the instance that he desired. The Arabians besieged Baghdad, and the Chinese were in the situation of having to hold on for more than a month until a substantial number of Chinese troops arrived. In the meantime, some regiments made up of conquered peoples (which were by law barred from utilizing some Chinese-exclusive weaponry) had to suffice. Eventually, Baghdad fell to the Arabians because a large part of the Muslim population in Baghdad itself rebelled and wouldn't fight. However, a few weeks later, the well-armed and 500,000 strong Chinese army retook the city and then moved on to wage war with the rest of Arabia. In as little as a year, the whole Arabian peninsula was under Chinese control. At the same time, an offensive against the Fatimid Caliphate commenced, even though there had been a peace treaty signed and the Caliphate never admitted to helping the Arabians. Chinese troops swept into Egypt, subduing the capital of Fustat and claiming the royal palaces at Cairo. The Fatimid rulers escaped to Ifriqiya (or Tunisia), setting up shop with the Zirids. The Chinese pushed towards Cairo, where the new Fatimid capital was, and captured it. In late 622, the fighting stopped, with Chinese control over both Arabia, Middle East, North Africa, and Egypt.

Foreign Influence[]

Zheng Lai Da La never wanted civilizations to die out. Instead, he wanted to blend them to increase his culture strength. Zheng blended 65 cultures into his empire. Zheng made Beijing the largest city in the world and the city with everlasting miles on how big it is with magic. China learned how to make products from other civilizations. Soon, less than one day, China had absorbed these influences and Beijing became "Heavenly City".

African and American Conquest[]

The Great Chinese army marched into Timbucktu in 624. The poor equipped African army was quickly defeated in five minutes. China then controlled all of West Africa. In a month, East Africa fell to the Chinese. Zheng Dai La Da discovered South Africa a month later, 10 mining settlements were set up to get gold and diamonds. Two of them were built in the coast, to transport them to China.

America was discovered 625, the mighty army seized West North America and Alaska and wiped out Indian tribes. 626 conquests in Central America and Mexico were easy and Soon, the Chinese ruled the Americas. Zheng then overthrown the Incas and seized North, West, and Southern South America. Soon, the Chinese then seized the Caribbean Islands and a tip of South Florida. Soon, the Chinese controlled the Americas until the 16th century.

European Invasion[]

The mighty Chinese army headed to all of Russia and Scandinavia 629. The knights were completely a no match for the Chinese technology. They then captured Constantinople a month later. Eastern Europe fell in two months. Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Burgundy, and the Mediterranean Islands fell to the Chinese then. Zheng then bought North and East Italy, South Spain, East and South France, and Eastern Spain. The Europeans also could have that territory, but under the Chinese empire.

New Religions[]

When Zheng became emperor, he introduced every religion to China and became official religions. It included Asian religions, Roman Gods, Orthodox Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Synagogues, temples (Asian and Roman style), mosques, and Orthodox Churches were built all over the empire.

Zheng allowed Christians to visit the Holy Land freely and safely and allowed them to continue these visits.

China becomes Trading Center[]

Zheng went to Eastern America, South Africa, and Europe to increase more trade. As it increased, China became the most wealthiest and had more resources and the most humongous food stockpile than any other country.


education. Beijing is the most enormous, magnificent, splendid, wealthiest, fortified, and the greatest city in the world. It had 40 million people. It is very huge because the city is stretched magically without going on the land, but did the Northern part of the Yellow Sea Bay. It had magnificent and splendid buildings of Ancient European, Muslim, Asian, Italian, and Spanish. The city has a bunch of 55 forums at the middle as with the Imperial Palace. It had huge harbors and series of canals. Beijing was a tropical paradise. It had a lot of palm trees, bamboo, and has a firefighter and police force to look after the city. And yes, as with every city, there were poor and rich. Everyone speaks Chinese, in the empire, but rarely, other Asian languages. Their culture is very advanced, and trading happens more there than anywhere else. With thick walls, fortified with watchtowers, gates, forts and ultra cannons and fixed guns made land of sea invasions difficult. After the invasion of Central Asia, they adopted the way of many cultures. Gunpowder had been invented, using it for fireworks, guns, flamethrowers, cannons, bombs, and firework bombers, but also made a technique of the fire shot. It boasted a sewer system, and organized social service in hospitals, homes, and orphanages. Ships crowded the city's harbors, luxuries come from all over the world. people without jobs are given, such as sweeping the streets, and weeding public gardens. The city's streets are either narrow of wide, grand and board, straight or twisting. People, camels, mule trains, horses, elephants, soldiers, merchants, peasants, water sellers, sweetmeat sellers, porters, beggars, raged children, barefooted slaves, stray dogs and cats, pets, priests, nuns, bishops, archbishops, carriages, and litters all crowd the streets. Many luxuries items, like ivory, silks, fur, perfumes, rum, gold, furniture, Samian ware (ware adopted from the Romans), fabulous and wealthy jewelery, rich dining utensils, musical instruments, silverware, ornaments, decorating supplies, spices, precious and colored stones, and other luxuries items fled in Beijing's and its empire's markets. Everyone attended circuses, theaters, and amphitheaters. Slave trade was created for the rich people so their slaves will do their bidding. They were one of the many recreations that made the Chinese happy. All roads and trade routes lead to Beijing. Public works were always made, and it has expanded a lot as the population grew. Its ports are centers of warship building, seafood produce, and centers of trading. Canals were water streets where ships drove on, and many monuments are found. There were many arenas where battleships fought, and there were many buildings that could stand on the water. Ships guard and control the waters around the port. Irrigation ditches were built at the ports in swampy areas to deliver to farms to control the water level. The Chinese had made a filter to turn the water cleaner, and most of the water is delivered the fountains and waterfalls that flow to the canals at the port. The Chinese refer the ports as paradises. Beijing also produces everything in their economy list. The Field of Han Shang is a military area for soldiers to exercise and produces soldiers. Trade always flourished in the empire, There were many food supplies stockpiled in the city. To the Chinese, there was no special and precious cargo than grain. It was the main food supply for making bread, pasta, cereals, and crackers. Normally, Chinese are not available to hunt down animals, but how do they still had ivory? The story goes, one day some scientists found some ivory from the Carthaginians. The scientists had started to create their own ivory. Made from some chemicals, they later started to use an oven an started to heat and mold it. Finally, they created their own ivory. It spread around the world, then they started to produce their own ivory, although many nations still traded with them. In this city, what's so strange about is that many structures, and there were terraces over terraces, streets above streets, and then zigzag roads and huge flights of steps bordered (and are also found there) with orange and lemon trees, roof-gardens, balconies, deep archways, pillared colonnades, spires, battlements, minarets, and pinnacles. Many governments buildings house laws, records, and orders. a trillion temples and shrines are dotted in the city. The city was finished in 583 years, though the city still expanded for some years. The city was the center of all economy and produce, trade, religion. Zheng also built a huge fort ring surrounded the city, packed with traps to kill and crush the enemy army. Zheng organized a group called the Circle of Yang, a circle that holds military meetings on what to do in the base. The forts were even located in the city itself. Everyday, people could see soldiers as a magnificent sight. Generals and their army march across the city. Blacksmiths had done the work on improving the army and finding new technologies. Palace and city guards were given ordered by the Senate and the emperor. Under the empire, the eagle (borrowed from the Romans) stands for strength and courage, the dragon (whichever any) stands for bravery and honor, and the lion helps soldiers to be fierce.

The empire had a population of eight billion people, more than any other empire.

Conquest in Scotland and Ireland[]

Just ten years before his death, Zheng starts to invade Scotland and Ireland in 630. He captured Falkirk from Wallace in 2 days. Zheng then captured to the borders of Northern Ireland and then created an empire in the British Isles.

Siege of Beijing[]

Wallace wanted to regain south Scotland and Ireland wanted to regain North Ireland from the Chinese as well. In 630, they sailed to Beijing and started to siege it. However, Zheng defeated their army in one hour, the siege ended.

Zheng then died 640, and his descendants ruled well and the empire lasted forever.
