The dynasty and state, which lasted from 479 to 502, were founded by Hsiao Taoch’eng after he killed the last emperor of the Sung Dynasty, which had ruled since 420. The state’s capital was Ch’ienk’ang (now Nanking). In 502 the ruler of the Yungchou region, Hsiao Yen, seized the throne and proclaimed the foundation of the Liang Dynasty, which lasted from 502 to 557.

Ch’i occupied most of what is now Shantung Province and part of what is now Hopeh Province. Its capital was Yinch’iu (now Lintz’u in Shantung). In 221 B.C., Ch’i was conquered by the kingdom of Ch’in.
