The China History Podcast

Since 2010, Laszlo Montgomery has presented The China History Podcast, bringing you the greatest hits from ancient and modern Chinese History. 

Jun 18, 2016

Laszlo finishes up the story of the Yuan Dynasty, founded in 1271.  The parts of China not yet conquered were done in by 1276 and the last holdouts went by 1279.  

But the Great Yuan didn't last long.  This episode takes a nice little overview of the dynasty, its slow demise, and the legacy they left.
