Fast Facts- brought back again

This is a re-post of an earlier entry but with so many new visitors, we thought we’d bring them back for a while!

1. The First Emperor’s birth name was Ying Zheng.
2. When the First Emperor ascended the throne upon the death of his father, he was only 13 years old.
3. The First Emperor created the title of “emperor” and all subsequent rulers of China used the title.
4. The positions of the bodies and hands of the warriors indicate which type of weapons they used.
5. The First Emperor was paranoid and is thought to have slept in a different palace every night to avoid assassination attempts.
