Ye (zh-cp|c=鄴|p=Yè) was an ancient Chinese city located in what is now
LinzhangCounty, Hebeiand the neighbouring AnyangCounty, Henan.
Ye was first built in the
Spring and Autumn Periodby Lord Huan of Qi, and by the time of the Warring States Periodthe city belonged to the state of Wei.Ye was a political and economic center of China during the Three Kingdoms Periodand Northern Dynasties. It served as the military headquarters of the warlords Yuan Shaoand Cao Caoin the last years of the Eastern Han Dynasty and later as the capital of the Eastern Wei Dynastyand 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.
