Detailed territorial maps of Tang and Song dynasties


Recommended Posts

This map shows the vast territory of early Tang dynasty, which includes Mongolia, several former Soviet republics, parts of Siberia, Afghanistan, most of Korea and Vietnam, but does not include the northern Manchuria.


This map shows the territory in year 741, when Tang dynasty reached the height of its power and wealth.


This map shows the reduced Tang dynasty after the An rebellion, much smaller than before.


This is Northern Song dynasty, notice Beijing was not under Song control

Dear AndyCmda:

Thanks for these interesting maps. How "authentic" are they, since they differ somewhat from maps I've seen posted elsewhere (Your maps on the greatest expansion of Tang trumps all other maps by quite a bit)?

It would be interesting to see where Talas River is. I've tried finding it on present day maps but no luck.
