The Mongol World is like the real world but with one difference; commander Zhao Kuangyin received an undercooked meal on the evening before the coup at Chenqiao in AD960. This tiny change has a dramatic effect on the rest of history.

Coup at Chenqiao, AD960; Real WorldEdit

In AD960 Commander Zhao Kuangyin was sent out with soldiers to defend the state of Later Zhao against an alleged attack by the states of Northern Han and Liao. Part way into the journey, word went around that a prophet had seen a vision indicating that the Heaven's Mandate had been transferred onto Zhao Kuangyin. As the rumor spread throughout the soldiers they began to grow discontent with the current emperor (Li Chongjin) of the state of later Zhao.

One night a few days later Kuangyin (who was drunk) heard a commotion outside his tent, and when he came outside the soldiers said to him "The army is without a master, we're willing to make commander the new emperor." Kuangyin was reluctant, and it took much persuasion from his soldiers for him to take up power.

When the story reached the royal court most officials gave in to the rule of this new emperor and those who considered resistance (including the official Han Tong) were killed when Kuangyin returned to the court with the soldiers.

As emperor, Kuangyin forms the powerful Song dynasty, under which he unfies all of China. 

Coup at Chenqiao, AD960; Mongol WorldEdit

In AD960 Commander Zhao Kuangyin was sent out with soldiers to defend the state of Later Zhao against an alleged attack by the states of Northern Han and Liao. Part way into the journey, word went around that a prophet had seen a vision indicating that the Heaven's Mandate had been transferred onto Zhao Kuangyin. As the rumor spread throughout the soldiers they began to grow discontent with the current emperor (Li Chongjin) of the state of later Zhao.

One night a few days later Kuangyin (who had become heavily drunk in an attempt to relieve severe food poisoning) heard a commotion outside his tent, and when he came outside the soldiers said to him "The army is without a master, we're willing to make commander the new emperor." Kuangyin was reluctant, and felt too unfit to command the army, never mind lead a revolution.

When the story reached the royal court Kuangyin's enemies (led by Zhang Yongde) took advantage of the events and pushed to have Kuangyin demoted. When the army reached the court and tried to attack they were disorganised and eventually repelled. Zhao Kuangyin was later executed by the order of emperor Li Chongjin to end the 'Heaven's Mandate' rumor. 

The official Han Tong takes Kuangyin's place as commander of the army of Later Zhao. China remains separated into eight competing states.
