Yixing is a county-level city with a population of 1.24 million administrated under the prefecture-level city of Wuxi in southern Jiangsu province, People's Republic of China, and is part of the Yangtze River Delta. The city is known for its traditional Yixing clay ware.HistoryYixing county was established in 221 BC with the name of Yangxian . Between 303 and 310 AD, the local aristocrat Zhou Qi, the eldest son of General Zhou Chu, suppressed three rebellions. Yangxian was then renamed Yixing to honor Zhou Qi. In 976, Yixing was renamed Yixing because of the naming taboo of Emperor Taizong of Song, whose personal name is Zhao Kuangyi.The renaming perhaps to be the allusion of a sentence in Doctrine of the Mean: "Righteousness is the accordance of actions"Administrative divisionsYixing is divided into four subdistricts and 14 towns:SubdistrictsYicheng (宜城, the seat of the city)Fangqiao (芳桥)Qiting (屺亭)Xinjie (新街)Xinzhuang (新庄)TownsDingshu Heqiao Hufu Gaocheng GuanlinTaihua Wanshi Xizhu Xinjian Xushe Yangxiang Zhangzhu Zhoutie
