Although the area southwest of Beijing was inhabited by early humans some 500,000 years ago the earliest recorded settlements in the Chinese historical sources date from 1045 BC. It emerged as a cultural and political force that would shape the destiny of China only with the 13th century Mongol occupation of China. The city’s name Beiping (Northern Peace) dates from the 14th century when the first Ming emperor Hongwu renamed it. During the Ming rule Beijing was considerably expanded. Later with the Manchus invasion the Qing dynasty was established. The city changed hands with some foreign or domestic forces, the last time it happened in 1949 when the Peoples’ Liberation Army entered Beijing and soon it was declared ‘Peoples Republic’ by Mao Zedong.
