While the capital flourished, many of the outlying provinces began to experience decline and poverty.The Tang Dynasty put so much of their resources into building the capital, that the military became weaker, and less effective. In A.D. 765 turmoil and uprisings began to plague the dynasty. In A.D. 907 these uprisings led to the dynasty being overthrown.
