Three Kingdoms Period of China and the Rise of Xianbei in the year 229 CE

This map depicts the boundaries of all major civilizations in East Asia at the beginning of the Three Kingdoms Period of China, with italics indicating nomadic bands and other tribal societies.
Following the collapse of Han Dynasty in 220 CE, three Kingdoms: Cao Wei (220 CE), Shu Han (221 CE), and Wu (229 CE) were established. In the meantime, the Xianbei people defeated Xiongnu and became the most powerful tribe in the north.
