[BtS] Civ of the Week: Dzungaria 2016-10-05

[BtS] Civ of the Week: Dzungaria

  1. cybrxkhan
    The last nomadic empire, and perhaps one that deserves more attention. Haven't made an Asian civ in a while, apparently. So... Enjoy, as always.


    The 3 Guarantees of Civ of the Week

    Civ of the Week guarantees three things that other custom civs usually don't have:

    - Unique Diplomacy Music for the leaders
    - Unique personalities for new leaders (i.e. leader personality isn't an exact copy of an old one!)
    - Unique civilization (civs are almost always somewhat obscure but interesting cultures that have never been presented as civs before!)

    What is Civ of the Week?

    Spoiler :
    Civ of the Week is a “project” aiming at bringing you a new, fresh, exotic, and most of all, random, civ every 1-2 weeks, from all corners of the globe, from the Vietnamese to the Mittanni to the Iraqis. Each civilization features full civilopedia text entires, 1-2 leaders with unique game and diplomatic attitudes (they're not simply a copy of another leader!), a UU, a UB, unique diplomacy music, and full graphics.

    The purpose of Civ of the Week, then, is three-fold:

    1. To bring you random civs that would probably not have been chosen as civilizations first of all, and to provide a new, more exotic, more interesting experience in choosing civilizations.

    2. To promote more knowledge of lesser-known peoples, cultures, and histories.

    3. Make more civs for the totally awesome Civ Gold mod.

    Otherwise, then, enjoy!

    [FONT=&quot]Description: [/FONT]The Dzungar Khanate was a great independent nomadic power on the Eurasian steppe, and the last of the steppe empires. It covered the area called Dzungaria and stretched from the west end of the Great Wall of China to present-day eastern Kazakhstan, and from present-day northern Kyrgyzstan to southern Siberia (most of this area is part of Xinjiang nowadays). In 1678 Galdan received from the Dalai Lama the title Boshogtu Khan. This confirmed the Dzungars as the new leading tribe of the Oirats. However, the Dzungar rulers bore title of Khong Tayiji (originally meaning crown prince from the Chinese word, Huang Taizi, which also means the same thing) while their state was often called Dzungar Khanate. After the deaths of Galdan Boshogtu Khan and Tsewang Rabtan, the Khanate began to decline; it was bloodily annexed by the Qing Dynasty in 1756-59.
