Historically, China's central plains, which had split for many years, were reunited by the Tang Dynasty in the 7th century.

Under the reign of Li Yuan (Emperor Gaozong) and Li Shimin (son of Li Yuan and Emperor Taizong), Tang became a powerful and prosperous nation and its capital Chang'an a political, economical and cultural center.

The influence of Tang was felt throughout East and Central Asia. Commercial and cultural exchanges between Tang and its neighbors were active.

In 629, the third year of Emperor Li Shimin's reign, a coup d'etat took place in Tubo. Its 31st Zanpu, or King, was assassinated by his political opponent.
