Qin Shi Huang
Qin Shi Huang was a ruler who founded the Chinese nation by unifying the Warring States. He ruled from 221 BC until his death in 210 BC at the age of 50.
With extensive iron deposits and a totalitarian "Legalist" governing structure, the State of Qin had advantages compared to the other Warring States. In a nine-year war, Qin defeated the other states and forged an empire. The king of Qin took the title "Qin Shi Huangdi" (first emperor of Qin).
