Des Trois royaumes aux Jin: Légitimation du pouvoir impérial en Chine au IIIe siècle

Abstract : The birth of the Three Kingdoms in AD 200 was experienced in China as a veritable political cataclysm. After years of struggle, conspiracies, coalitions and reversals, three heroes emerged and carved out kingdoms in the ashes of a soldier-ravaged empire: the State of Wei in the north, that of Wu in the southeast, and that of Chu in Sichuan. Unification was not achieved by one of the Three Kingdoms' heroes, but by the Sima family who, after confiscating the State of Wei from its owners, succeeded in establishing and legitimising its own dynasty: the Jin. Who were the Simas? Under what political circumstances did they seize power? How did they go about transforming the Wei Dynasty into the Jin Dynasty? What did they do after founding their dynasty? These are the key questions addressed in this book.
