Ye, China

Ye (zh-cp|c=鄴|p=Yè) was an ancient Chinese city located in what is now Linzhang County, Hebei and the neighbouring Anyang County, Henan.

Ye was first built in the Spring and Autumn Period by Lord Huan of Qi, and by the time of the Warring States Period the city belonged to the state of Wei.Ye was a political and economic center of China during the Three Kingdoms Period and Northern Dynasties. It served as the military headquarters of the warlords Yuan Shao and Cao Cao in the last years of the Eastern Han Dynasty and later as the capital of the Eastern Wei Dynasty and Northern Qi Dynasty. The city was razed to the ground in 580, after Yang Jian, future founder of the Sui Dynasty, defeated a resistance force led by Yuchi Jiong, which used Ye as a base of operations. Extensive excavations of the city have been made in recent years, allowing Chinese historians to make detailed plans of the site.
