Zhongshan state, Wei state, Han state, Yan state, Zhao state, Qin state
and so on all began to build their city wall. The total of the city
wall's length was more than five thousand kilometre, but they were
distracted from each other.

new city wall in the north to protect from the Hun. He command MengTian general and
thousands upon thousands people to build the new city wall, it stretch

period of Zhu, Liao and Jin Dynasties, the north parts of Chian was occupied by
the Khitan, the west parts of the Yellow River was occupied by West Xia,
The North Song Dynasty only repaired the Yan Gate. Since this, Liao and
Jin state became more and more stronger, and occupied the whole parts in
