Upon escaping, he continued his journey and reported back to the Han Emperor all the information that he found about the different countries.

Most of the East Asian migrants who arrived in the 19th century to the United States make up the Buddhist population.

By 157 BCE, the Han court had replaced all of these kings with royal Liu family members, since the loyalty of non-relatives to the throne was questioned.  After several insurrections by Han kings—the largest being the Rebellion of the Seven States in 154 BCE—the imperial court enacted a series of reforms beginning in 145 BCE, limiting the size and power of these kingdoms and dividing them into smaller ones or new commanderies.
