How to use "Qing dynasty" in context?
The Qing Dynasty (1644-1912) was the last imperial dynasty of China, reigning for over three hundred years. Born of the Manchu-led dynasty of the Ming, the Qing abandoned the policy of isolation that had characterized their predecessors and forged an effortless, if precarious, relationship with the European powers. In the process, the dynasty exhibited a remarkable capacity for adaptability, rising to the challenge of a rapidly changing international environment.
