The Terracotta Army was created by the Emperor Qin as part of his posthumous mausoleum. Chin had reached the throne at the age of thirteen and never wanted to give up. He did not hesitate to imprison his mother, to bury his adversary alive, to destroy all the writings that contained what he did not agree with. On the other hand, he succeeded in uniting China during the reign, building the first sections of the Great Wall of China, unifying the currency and writing.
