The Tibetan people living in this land are an important part of the Chinese family composed of dozens of nationalities. Since the establishment of the Tubo Kingdom in the early 7th century, the Tibetan local authority has maintained a close relationship with the central government. Historical events such as Pincess Wencheg's marriage to Srong-btsan-sgan-po are widely praised and well-preserved in records. Since the Yuan dynasty, Tibet has been formally integrated into China. In the Qing dynasty, the policy of the minister of Tibetan affairs being permanently stationed in Tibet and practice of drawing lots from the gold urn to confirm reincarnated soul boy were two examples of systems established to further strengthen the relationship between the central government and its subordinate, Tibet.
