Mishan (Chinese :密山; pinyin :Mìshān) is a county-level city in the southeast of Heilongjiang Province, China, bordering Russia's Primorsky Krai to the south and southeast. It is under the jurisdiction of the prefecture-level city of Jixi.



Early medieval history

From 698 to 936, the kingdom of Balhae occupied northern Korea and parts of Manchuria and Primorsky Krai, consisting of the Nanai, the Udege, and descendants of the Tungus-speaking people and the people of the recently fallen Goguryeo kingdom of Korea. The vicinity of Tongjiang was settled at this moment by Funie Mohe tribes (Hanja/Hanzi: 拂涅靺鞨; pinyin :Fúniè Mòhé; Korean : 불열말갈). These tribes were submitted to Balhae Kingdom under King Mun's reign (737-793).

Later, King Seon (r.818-830), administrated their territories by creating a prefecture in the neighbourhood : The Dongpyong Prefecture (Korean : 동평부; Hanja : 東平府) with Yiju (Korean: 이주; Hanja: 伊州), present-day Dangbi (Chinese:当壁; pinyin:Dāngbì) as its administrative centre.

History of Manchuria

Manchuria is a region in East Asia. Depending on the definition of its extent, Manchuria can either refer to a region falling entirely within China, or a larger region today divided between Northeast China and the Russian Far East. To differentiate between the two parts following the latter definition, the Russian part is also known as Outer Manchuria, while the Chinese part is known as Inner Manchuria. It is the homeland of the Manchu people, known as the "land of dragon rising" by the Aisin Gioro, the term introduced in 1636 for the Jurchen people, a Tungusic people which took power in 17th century China, establishing the Qing dynasty that lasted until 1912. The population grew from about 1 million in 1750 to 5 million in 1850 and 14 million in 1900, largely because of the immigration of Chinese farmers.

Outer Manchuria

Outer Manchuria or Outer Northeast China is an unofficial term for a territory in Northeast Asia that was formerly controlled by the Qing dynasty and now belongs to Russia. It is considered part of Manchuria by some definitions. Russia officially received this territory by way of the Treaty of Aigun in 1858 and the Treaty of Peking in 1860. The northern part of the area was also in dispute between 1643 and 1689.
