Immediately after the unification of China, Emperor Qin began to build the Great Wall. The northern regions of China frequently attacked by warrior tribes that lived beyond it. Several border states had built walls to guard against this. But there was no persistent barrier to connect the northern border. That is what the Qin Emperor wanted.

He added to the existing walls and fortifications, strengthened them, and built along the wall.

It said to be ten meters high.

The Qin Emperor began his work here At BC 220. As the war ended, a large number of recruits evacuated. A large number of them used for this purpose. Slaves and other prisoners were also used for this purpose. It said that many people died, and their bodies buried in the wall.

Emperor Qin had a fear of death even before he became Emperor. In particular, his conspiracies and assassination attempts led to this. He was even more frightened by the thought that he would afflict the spirits of those he had killed in the world of the dead. Conspiracies and attempted assassination attempts led to this. He became even more horrified by the thought that he would hurt in the world of the dead by the spirits of those he killed.

Emperor Qin decided to take an army to protect himself in the world of the dead. Earlier, Chinese rulers buried small-scale terracotta soldiers in their tombs. But the Qin Emperor wanted an army that was slightly larger than life.

That is how the terracotta soldiers in the present Xian region were created. There are about 8,000 Terracotta soldiers and officers, and chariots and horses. These soldiers, chairs, and chariots are carefully crafted.

Until 1974 there were only legends and literary facts about the tomb of Emperor Qin and the rest of the tomb complex. When a group of Chinese farmers met the Terracotta soldiers in 1974, they became convinced that the historical record was correct.

If the historical chronicles of the terracotta soldiers were true, then it was suspected that the tales of the Emperor’s tomb could also be true. According to these historical facts, the Emperor’s tomb made of gold.

 The floor of the large hall was designed as a map of China. Mercury used for rivers. Also, there are gemstones placed on the ceiling of the tomb to symbolize the stars in the sky.

Death in search of immortality

 

At first, the Emperor, who had even prepared for death, turned his attention to the other side. That is, finding a drug for immortality.

His doctors prescribed him various medications. One is sexual intercourse. It believed that increased sexual intercourse with multiple women would prolong life.

At the same time, his chemists give the emperor pellets of mercury. Mercury is the only substance that can dissolve gold. Therefore it was believed to have great power. It also believed to have the potential to increase life span.

But mercury does the opposite. It is a heavy metal and affects the nervous system and the brain. A large intake of mercury can distort the mind. That is what happened to the Emperor in the last days.

The Emperor died on his way back in 210 CE on his way to a coastal area.
