year created

Xiu was created the Prince of Langye in 252, she became princess. She accompanied him, as his fief was initially established at Hulin (虎林, in modern Chizhou, Anhui) but subsequently moved twice to Danyang (丹陽, in modern Xuancheng, Anhui) then finally to Kuaiji (會稽, in modern Shaoxing, Zhejiang). In 252, Crown Prince He's status was elevated from commoner status, as Sun Quan, just before his death that year, created him the Prince of Nanyang, with his fief at Changsha. Indeed, there were rumors, even after Sun He's younger brother Sun Liang took the throne after Sun Quan's death, that the regent Zhuge Ke, an uncle of Sun He's wife Princess Zhang, was interested in restoring Prince He and making him emperor instead. After Zhuge's assassination and replacement by Sun Jun (Sun Jun (Three Kingdoms)) in 253, however, Prince He fell into danger, as Sun Jun had been instrumental in having him deposed in the first place and wanted to eliminate any chance of a comeback. He used the rumors as excuse to have Sun He demoted back to commoner status and exiled to Xindu (新都, in modern Hangzhou, Zhejiang), and then sent messengers to force Sun He to commit suicide. Princess Zhang also committed suicide, but when offered the chance to, Consort He refused—stating that if she died as well, no one would be left to care for Sun He's sons, so she raised Sun Hao and his three brothers by other consorts—Sun De (孫德), Sun Qian (孫謙), and Sun Jun (孫俊, note different character than the regent). Sun Hao was just 11 when his father died. However, a series of Sino-German agreements in 1934–1936 greatly accelerated railway construction in China. Major railroads were built between Nanchang, Zhejiang, and Guizhou. These fast developments were made possible because Germany needed efficient transportation to export raw materials, and because the railway lines served the Chinese government's need to build an industrial center south of the Yangtze, in the south-central provinces. In addition, these railways served important military functions. For example, the Hangzhou-Guiyang rail was built to facilitate military transport in the Yangtze delta valley, even after Shanghai and Nanking were lost. Another similar railway was the Guangzhou-Hankou network, which provided transportation between the eastern coast and the Wuhan area. This railway would later prove its worth in the early stages of the Second Sino-Japanese War. Zhuge was the uncle of Sun He's wife Princess Zhang, and there were soon rumors that Zhuge was considering restoring Sun He and making him emperor. After Zhuge was assassinated and replaced by Sun Jun in 253, Sun Jun, who had been instrumental in Sun He's deposal, decided to end the threat once and for all. He first again demoted Sun He back to commoner status and exiled him to Xindu (in present-day Hangzhou, Zhejiang), and then sent messengers to force Sun He to commit suicide. Princess Zhang also committed suicide. Sun He's four sons Sun Hao, Sun De (孫德), Sun Qian (孫謙), and Sun Jun (孫俊) were raised by Sun Hao's mother, Consort He (Empress Dowager He (Sun Hao)), who was offered the chance to commit suicide but declined, reasoning that someone needed to raise the children. *Guangzhou: Beijing Road *Hangzhou: Wulin Square, Euro Street, Hubin Road, HDA Plaza *Shanghai: Nanjing Road (Nanjing Road (Shanghai)), Huaihai Road, Xujiahui * '''ZSGZ''' (KOW) – Ganzhou Huangjin Airport – Ganzhou, Jiangxi * '''ZSHC''' (HGH) – Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport – Hangzhou, Zhejiang * '''ZSJA''' (JGS) – Jinggangshan Airport – Ji'an, Jiangxi * 1163 – Rebuilding of Notre Dame (Notre Dame de Paris) in Paris begun. * 1165 – Liuhe Pagoda of Hangzhou, China rebuilt. * 1165 – Dhammayangyi Temple built in Bagan, Pagan Kingdom.
