more of what happened right before the era of 1450 1750 c e
More of what happened right before the era of 1450-1750 C.E.
  • Delhi Sultanate in India: the continuing Rise of Islam, the Decline of Buddhism, competing power bases
  • Founding of the Ottoman Empire (1281)
  • Continued decline of the Byzantine Empire
  • Trade routes in Mediterranean, Indian Ocean, South China Sea, Trans-Saharan and across the Eurasian steppes keep the world connected
ming dynasty china
  • 1368-1644 CE
  • Took power from Yuan (Mongol) Dynasty
  • Revival of Chinese culture & Removal of Mongol Influence
  • Neo-Confucian (strict social structure)
    • Emperor > Scholar Gentry > Farmers > Artisans > Merchants
  • Population Explosion (champa rice and irrigation methods helped population grow)
  • Silk, paper, porcelain in high demand in Europe allowing for a trade advantage for China and a trade deficit for Europe…this will come back to haunt China later!
  • Active traders in Indian Ocean and South China Sea (junk ships)
  • Traded with Europeans and Japanese for silver
  • But for a while, the Ming Dynasty provided China with another golden age
ming china continued
MING CHINA (continued)
  • Reestablished the Civil Service Examinations to restore meritocracy
  • Censored writings
  • Continued the subordination of youth to elders and women to men (Confucian social order was revived)
the ming voyages
  • Ming emperor Yongle sent out Zheng He on voyages throughout the region on huge ships (junks)
  • Then the Ming ended the explorations and destroyed the fleets; this prevented the Chinese from becoming a colonizing power and led to their isolationism (which will eventually lead to their being dominated by other powers)
silver ming china spain
  • The Ming converted to a silver-based monetary system, using Japan and then Spain for silver for their official currency
  • Made Spain (and New Spain) wealthy along with the shoguns in Japan
  • Inflation resulted because of too much silver, damaging the economy of China
  • Ming were then conquered by Manchu (Qing) after numerous rebellions and famine
qing dynasty china
  • Took control from the Ming in 1644 and ruled China for almost 300 years
  • Manchurians in leadership role but kept much of Chinese tradition in place
  • Civil Service examinations were vital to run the empire
  • Conquered large amounts of territory (good news in the beginning, but what goes up…)
  • Traded with Europeans but maintained power in the relationship (Macartney Mission is a prime example)
the macartney mission 1793
The Macartney Mission, 1793
  • Britain sent George Macartney to China to try and work out a more equal trade relationship (wanted to end the trade imbalance)
  • The Qing emperor rebuffed Macartney and the relationship between China and Europe grows strained
tokugawa japan
  • Prior to the Tokugawa Shogunate, Japan had opened up trade with Portugal and the Dutch
  • Christianity was brought in along with muskets
  • Eventually Japan would turn against Christianity and Western influences and become isolationist for centuries, fearing a loss of their traditional ways and their autonomy
tokugawa japan continued
  • In 1600, Tokugawa Ieyasu created new capital at Edo (Tokyo) and took power from the emperor, instituting a strict social hierarchy
  • Seclusion of Japan began, fearing a takeover by the more powerful Europeans
  • Some trade continued but Japanese contact with the outside world was very limited
  • Christianity outlawed, as were certain books
  • Buddhism and Shinto were big religions as Christianity was persecuted for being foreign
ottoman empire 1281 1914
  • Osman and the Turks invade and establish empire to challenge the Byzantine Empire (conquered them)
  • Ruled over Greece, Turkey, North Africa and Middle East
  • Constantinople becomes Istanbul
  • Hagia Sofia becomes a mosque
  • Jews and Christians allowed to practice faith, but…
  • As the empire grew, so did religious persecution (Janissaries were children of conquered Christians who were turned into military slaves)
  • Under Suleiman the Magnificent, the Ottoman Empire experienced a “Golden Age” due to artistic accomplishments
  • Competed with the Safavids to their east
ottoman empire continued
  • Land based empire (no navy, reliant on Europe for naval protection and sea trade…this is NEVER a good idea.)
  • Led by Sultan (absolute monarch with both political and religious authority)
  • Bureaucracy in place (viziers had power)
  • Declined due to sultans neglecting power, too much growth, corruption, inability to innovate with military and technology
  • Janissaries were used for military
safavid empire 1502 1722
  • Rivals of the Ottomans, ruled in modern day Iran (Persia)
  • Shia Islam dominates after their leader, Ismail, forced the conversion from Sunni Islam to Shi’ite Islam
  • “Hidden Imam” expectation (like a savior/messianic figure)
  • Reliant on Europe for naval support (ask the Ottomans how that played out…)
  • Nomads from Central Asia threatened and then conquered the Safavid Empire
mughal empire 1526 1739
MUGHAL EMPIRE1526 - 1739
  • Islamic leader Babur invaded and conquered Northern India (Delhi Sultanate was ruling at the time)
  • Muslim Empire based on military strength and strong economy (textiles)
  • Akbar the Great stressed religious tolerance, needing to win over largely Hindu population
  • Akbar married a Hindu princess and then even tried creating a new religion based on himself
  • Relied on Europeans for naval support
  • Taj Mahal built during Mughal Empire

Seriously, you mean to tell me that all three Gunpowder Empires let European powers handle all their naval support and sea trade in an era of unprecedented global maritime trade and imperialism?

western europe on the rise
Western Europe on the Rise

As the Ming are pulling back and becoming isolationist in nature, the powers of the West are just beginning to explore their world in order to conquer it…

  • Prince Henry the Navigator explores western coastline of Africa along with other explorers (seeking routes to Asia)
  • Interested in trading ports as opposed to territorial gains
  • Dominant in Indian Ocean trade as a result
  • Major player in Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade early on
  • Advanced naval technology: astrolabe, caravels, compass
  • Reconquista had booted Islam from Iberian Peninsula
  • Power consolidated by Isabella’s marriage to Ferdinand
  • Backing of the Catholic Church (reciprocal relationship)
  • Looking to become dominant in trade (overcome Islamic domination of Mediterranean), Spain backed Columbus in voyages which led to “discovery” of New World
spain in the americas
  • Established colonies from North America to South America and throughout Caribbean
  • Wiped out Incas, Aztecs, and other tribes due to disease, slavery, and war (remember Guns, Germs, and Steel)

power balance shift in europe
  • Spain overextends itself with too many colonies, lavish spending, and wars not won
  • Britain defeats the Spanish Armada

  • Netherlands and Portugal also in the mix with trading companies
great britain
  • King Henry VIII’s daughter Elizabeth ruled during a true golden age in which England gained colonies, defeated Spain in 1588, explored the world, and enjoyed cultural success with Shakespeare
  • Protestantism, especially Anglicanism, became favored over Catholicism
  • The Glorious Revolution peacefully replaced the Catholic James II with the Protestant William and Mary of the Netherlands, ensuring Anglican rulers for a long time to come in Britain
  • France was mostly Catholic but a Protestant group, known as Huguenots, fought the Catholics for control of France
  • 1598, Henry IV issued the Edict of Nantes which created an environment of toleration
  • King Louis XIV:“I am the State.”

  • Multicultural empire (many different ethnic groups were conquered and this will make nationalism difficult for Russia in the future)
  • Russian Orthodox Church the only religion
  • Peter the Great speeds up the Westernization process (goal: be more like Europe in order to catch up to Europe)
