There has been a settlement in Yinchuan for over four thousand years, but the establishment of a city here can be traced back well over 2 thousand years, to Emperor Hanchengdi's reign in the Han Dynasty when Beidiannong City was established in the east suburb of present day Yinchuan. Later, Li Yuanhao, leader of the Dangxiang ethnic group, established the Western Xia Dynasty (1038-1227), and made Yinchuan its capital.
