Hanzhong
Hanzhong ( H¨¤nzh¨­ng) is a city in Shaanxi province, in central China. The population in 2004 was approximately 3.7 million.

History

The city was formerly called Nanzheng. It formed the center of the Han Principality. The latter was assigned to Liu Bang by Xiang Yu after the fall of Qin, during the 18 Kingdoms interregnum preceding the establishment of the Han Empire by Liu. During the Three Kingdoms Period Hanzhong, as a border city between the kingdoms of Wei and Shu, had considerable strategic importance, but only from the Wei side of the city.
