Passage

The Song (aka sung) dynasty ruled China from 960 to 1279 CE with the reign split into two periods: the Northern Song (960 - 1125 CE) and Southern Song (1125 - 1279 CE) . The Northern Song ruled a largely united

China from their capital at Kaifeng, but when the northern part of the state was invaded by the un state in the first quarter of the 12th century CE, the Song moved their capital south to Hangzhou. Despite the relative modernization of China and its great economic wealth during the period, the Song court was so plagued with political factions and conservatism that the state could not withstand the challenge of the Mongd invasion and collapsed in 1279 CE, replaced by the Yuan dynasty.
