LIAO DYNASTY, AD 907 to 1125

The Liao, one of the Tartar Dynasties known as the Ch'i-tan or Ki-tan Tartars, was established by T'ai Tsu in AD 907 during the period of the 5 dynasties, and lasted until AD 1125, ruling from their capital at Beijing. Having been established 53 years before the Northern Sung dynasty, for most of their existence they existed along side the Northern Sung. We have not yet done any research to find out how relations were between them, but we doubt they were totally peaceful.
