The kingdom was seized with a movement of separatism championed by the aristocrats bent on returning to the old system.

Songtsan Gambo became the 32nd Zanpu. Though he was only thirteen at the time, he was already a resourceful statesman.

Calmly exploiting his diplomatic and military clout, he crushed the separatist movement, and in three years Tubo became an integrated kingdom again.

Then he crossed the Yalutsangbo River and established the capital at today's Lhasa. Songtsan Gambo has since become a national hero of the Tibetans and worshiped like the revered Lamas.
