It was located in China it was being ruled by Taizuuntil the time got there it split into two periods the Northern Song and Southern Song. Thenorthern ruled more and they were located in their Capital in Kaifeng.
Until theygot invaded by Jin, so they needed to move their capital to Hangzhou. The state couldn’t move with political problems aftera year with great economic wealth until they faced a bigger problem then what they hadin the past the Mongol empire hit they with a great invasión and the song empirecollapsed in 1279 C.E. Foundation: (The song dynasty was, thus, founded by the Later Zhougeneral Zhao Kuangyin (927-976 CE) who was endorsed as emperor by the armyin 960 CE? His reign title would be Taizu (‘Grand Progenitor’). Making sure no rivalgeneral ever became too powerful and gained the necessary support to take his throne, theemperor introduced a system of rotation of army leaders and swept away allopposition.
Further, he ensured that the civil service henceforth enjoyed a higher status than thearmy acting as their supervisory body. Taizu was succeeded by his younger brother, EmperorTaizong (‘Grand Ancestor’), who reigned from 976 to 997 CE. The stability provided bythe long reigns of the first two emperors (at least compared to the chaotic previouscenturies) gave the Song dynasty the start it needed to become one of the most successfulin China’s history.)
