Hanfu from China, Ming Dynasty. Founded in 1368 AD by Zhu Yuanzhang, this was the last feudal dynasty in Chinese history. Spanning over 276 years and 19 emperors, it was drawn to an end in 1644 AD. This was due to tax increases, widespread military desertions, and natural disasters such as floods and famines.
