Redirected from Mukden
In 1625 the Manchu leader Nurhaci[?] moved his capital to Shenyang. It was renamed to Mukden (in Chinese, 盛京) in 1634. Shenyang remained the capital of the Qing Dynasty until the relocation to Beijing in 1644.
Since 1657 Shenyang had been called Fengtianfu (奉天府) until it was changed back to its old name Shenyang in 1914.
During the Manchukuo era it was called Fengtian again.
