Han (Western Zhou state)

The State of Han (simplified Chinese: 韩国; traditional Chinese: 韓國; pinyin: Hán Guó), was a minor state that existed during the Western Zhou Dynasty and early Spring and Autumn Period, and centered on modern day Hancheng and Hejin. The state was created for a son, known historically as the Marquess of Han (韓侯), of King Wu of Zhou[1] in 11th century BC. The rulers held the rank of marquess and ancestral name of Ji (姬).[2] Han was conquered by the State of Jin and enfeoffed to Wuzi of Han[2] in 8th century BC.
