is a city of long history. As early as 50,000 years ago, clans inhibited the Anyi region of the Nanchang

city. First built " Nanchang
Nanchang
County," Yu Zhang county of Gunji, take "grand southern" and "Southern prosperity," meaning, named "Nanchang." The territories encompassing modern-day Jiangxi
Jiangxi
Province—including Nanchang—was first incorporated into China
China
during the Qin dynasty, when it was conquered from the Baiyue peoples and organized as Jiujiang
Jiujiang
Commandery (Chinese: 九江郡).[5] In 201 BC, during the Han dynasty, the city was given the Chinese name Nanchang
Nanchang
and became the administrative seat of Yuzhang Commandery (Chinese: 豫章郡), and was governed by Guan Ying (Chinese: 灌嬰), one of Emperor Gaozu of Han's generals.[5] The name Nanchang
Nanchang
means "southern flourishing", derived from a motto of developing what is now southern China
China
that is traditionally attributed to Emperor Gaozu himself.[5] In AD 589, during the Sui dynasty, this commandery was changed into a prefecture named Hongzhou (Chinese: 洪州), and after 763 it became the provincial center of Jiangxi, which was then beginning the rapid growth that by the 12th century made it the most populous province in China. In 653 the Tengwang Pavilion
Tengwang Pavilion
was constructed, and in 675 Wang Bo wrote the classic "Tengwang Ge Xu", a poetic introductory masterpiece celebrating the building, making the building, the city, and the author himself known to literate Chinese-speaking population ever since.[6] The Pavilion has been destroyed and rebuilt several times throughout history.[7] Its present form was reconstructed in the 1980s after being destroyed in 1929 during the Chinese Civil War.[8] In 959, under the Southern Tang
Southern Tang
regime, Nanchang
Nanchang
was made superior prefecture and the southern capital. After the conquest by the Song regime in 981 it was reverted to the name Hongzhou. In 1164 it was renamed Longxing prefecture, which name it retained until 1368. At the end of the Yuan (Mongol) period (1279–1368), it became a battleground between Zhu Yuanzhang, the founder of the Ming dynasty (1368–1644), and the rival local warlord, Chen Youliang. At the beginning of the 16th century it was the power base from which Zhu Chenhao, the Prince of Ning, launched a rebellion against the emperor. During the reign of the Wanli Emperor
Wanli Emperor
of the Ming dynasty, it housed relatives of the emperor who had been exiled because they were potential claimants of the imperial throne, members of the imperial family constituting about one quarter of the city's population; as a result of this, Matteo Ricci
Matteo Ricci
came here when trying to gain entry to Beijing.[9] In the 1850s it suffered considerably as a result of the Taiping Rebellion (1850–64), and its importance as a commercial centre declined as the overland routes to Canton were replaced by coastal steamship services in the latter half of the 19th century. Nanchang has, however, remained the undisputed regional metropolis of Jiangxi. On August 1, 1927, Nanchang
Nanchang
was the site of one of a series of insurrections organized by the communists. The Nanchang
Nanchang
Uprising, led by pro-communist Kuomintang
Kuomintang
officers under Russian direction, succeeded in holding the city for only a few days, and provided a core of troops and a method of organization from which the People's Liberation Army (PLA) later developed.
