Shaanxi has a time-honored history. It is a major birthplace of Chinese civilization. In ancient times, it was the location of Yongzhou and Lianghzou, as well as the native place of Yan Emperor and the burial place of Yellow Emperor. In early years of the Western Zhou Dynasty, King Cheng of Zhou took Shanyuan as the boundary. The western Shanyuan was controlled by Zhaogong. The descendants therefore named the western Shanyuan as “Shaanxi”.
