The Eastern Han, also known as the Later Han, formally began on 5 August 25, when Liu Xiu became Emperor Guangwu of Han. He ruled over parts of China at first, and through suppression and conquest of regional warlords, the whole of China was consolidated by the time of his death in 57. He was succeeded by Emperor Ming of Han. Guangwu established his capital in Luoyang, 367 kilometers (228 mi) east of the former capital Chang'an (today Xi'an).
