Notes[eedit | eedit soorce]

  1. Early Chinese dynasties were typically named efter the fief o thair foondin dynast, an this readin is consistent wi Wang Mang's pre-imperial poseetion as Marquess o Xin. In 1950, C.B. Sargent suggested that the name o the dynasty shoud be read as meanin "new", that J.J.L. Duyvendak rejectit oot o haund. Chauncey S. Goodrich later convincinly airgie'd that it mey be possible tae assign a semantic readin tae xin, but that it ocht tae be read as renewed or renewal, nae semply new. See Goodrich, Chauncey S. (July 1957). "The Reign of Wang Mang: Hsin or New?". Oriens. Leiden: Brill. 10 (1): 114–8. doi:10.2307/1578760.
