By the ancient sources, Chongqing was the birthplace of the wife of the legendary Emperor Yu about 4.000 years ago. In the 11 century BC, under Xi Zhou dynasty, the area surrounding Chongqing became a feudal state as known as Ba. Ba established relationships with the Yangtze Chu kingdom. Later it was incorporated into the Qin empire. By the middle of the 3rd century BC, the region was part of the Shu kingdom and completely independent from the north and central China.
The swing of the historic pendulum, as the status of the city and its environs alternated between forming part of an empire in northern and central China and seceding to become independent from both northern and central China, continued over the following centuries.
