Best Answer

The Qin dynasty was the dynasty that unified China after the warring states period. Throughout Chinese history, the dynasty was known for its aggressive rule under the Legalist system. Some people believe it lasted for only about 1 generation because of its harsh rule and showed no mercy(for example who broke the law would be executed (they did a lot of things like improve the great wall, built irrigation systems... all through conscript labor). These were all factors that caused unrest among the people, which led to a revolution.

The Qin dynasty fell when the first Qin emperor died. His young son took the throne however the emperor's advisors attempted to rule through him which weakened the government. Popular revolt broke out shortly after leading to the fall of the Empire.

Three assassination attempts were made on Qin Shihuang's life, leading him to become paranoid and obsessed with immortality. He died in 210 BC, while on a trip to the far eastern reaches of his empire in an attempt to procure an elixir of immortality from Daoist magicians, who claimed the elixir was stuck on an island guarded by a sea monster. The chief eunuch, Zhao Gao, and the Prime Minister , Li Shi, hid the news of his death upon their return until they were able to alter his will to place on the throne the dead emperor's most pliable son, Huhai, who took the name of Qin Er Shi. They believed that they would be able to manipulate him to their own ends, and thus effectively control the empire. Qin Er Shi was, indeed, inept and pliable. He executed many ministers and imperial princes, continued massive building projects, enlarged the army, increased taxes, and arrested messengers who brought him bad news. As a result, men from all over China revolted, attacking officials, raising armies, and declaring themselves kings of seized territories. johnny c.
