From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Jīn Dynasty (1115–1234), also known as the Jurchen Dynasty, was founded by the Wanyan (完顏 Wányán) clan of the Jurchens. These were the ancestors of the Manchus who established the Qing Dynasty some 500 years later.
- The name is sometimes written as Jinn to differentiate it from an earlier Jìn Dynasty of China whose name is spelled identically in the Roman alphabet.
