In the southwest of Shandong of China, on the fertile wild plain in the banks of the Yellow River and the south of Mount Tai, there is an old eastern political center, economy and culture important strategic place--Qufu.
In ancient times, Chinese nation walked out in childhood from here, and breed the crystallization thought that became the main body of China's culture later -- the Confucianism culture.
Four thousand or five thousand years ago, Shen Nong, the Yellow emperor set up ancient state here, more than 2600 B.C. ago, the earliest civil ancestor of our nation was born in the Shouqiu ruins of Qufu. The son of Yellow emperor built the capital in Qufu, so Qufu was called the ruins of Shaohao in history. So the Chinese nation is called the descendent of the Yellow Emperor and Yan Emperor.
The 11th century B.C., The Duke Zhou Jidan, the person who starts Lu culture, was conferred upon Qufu, and built the Lu country. So now Lu is the abbreviation of Shandong Province.
