The Qing dynasty (1644-1911), also called the Flag of Manchu Manchu dynasty, was the last imperial dynasty of China. In 1644, the Chinese capital at Beijing was captured by rebels, upon which the last Flag of Ming Ming emperor committed suicide. The Ming dynasty officials and generals called on the Manchus for aid. The Manchus took advantage of the opportunity to seize the capital and establish their own dynasty in China. By adopting the Ming form of government and continuing to employ Ming officials (the in-game Celestial Empire government), the Manchus managed to rule China until the early 20th century.

Qing does not exist at the beginning of the grand campaign, but can be formed by the Flag of Manchu Manchu, which in turn can be formed by Flag of Jianzhou Jianzhou, Flag of Haixi Haixi, Flag of Yeren Yeren or any other Country with Manchu primary culture.
