Despite this military success,
economic and political struggles still arose within China. Internal struggles
for power taxed the peasants, until 184 A.D, when another peasant uprising
occurred. This movement was begun by a group known as the Yellow Turbans.
This uprising served to unite the factions who had previously been fighting
one another because they needed to unite in order to defeat the Yellow Turbans.
Despite conquering them, China did not return to a uniform state. Instead,
three kingdoms emerged and the Han dynasty came to an end.
