History: Earlier known as Chu, Hubei was the seat of power of the Zhou Dynasty. During 475 to 221 BC, Chu was involved in many battles with the neighboring state of Qin, now Shaanxi Province.
Chu gradually lost most of its territories to the Qin. The Qin were then deafeated by the Han, who established their capital in erstwhile Jingzhou, now the area occupied by Hubei and Hunan. Through the years, Hubei was occupied by successive dynasties.
The Song Dynasty renamed the Province to Jinghubei in 982. In 1339, the Mongols overran Hubei and united it with Hunan, Guangdong and Guangxi and called it Huguang. In 1644, the Manchu Qing dynasty split Huguang into Hubei and Hunan.
