Social Structure in Qing Dynasty2017-01-13 21:37:53Share:
The Qing Dynasty reign was strict about its social structure which dictated who has power over whom. This often led to abuses of power and plots to take down those who ruled over the people.
Emperor and His Advisors
The highest social ranking during the era of the Qing Dynasty was the emperor. Emperors could have multiple wives and they typically spent more time with their favorite ones. They also had a group of advisors with whom they typically discussed important issues and decisions.
The advisors were next in line in the Qing social structure. This particular class was superior to nobles, soldiers, and officials. They could also assume the emperor role in his absence. But being so close to the top of the command chain also led to abuses and plots to take down the emperor.
