All that is established is the fact that the Hsia was a state before the Shang.
Hsia was a clever fellow, and had acquired some reputation even at the early age of ten.
It is unlikely that Hsia exercised any imperial hegemony over other peoples, since the empire system did not rise till Chou times.
It was a common saying during the Hsia dynasty, 'If the Emperor visiteth not, what will become of us?'
Meanwhile other armies were engaged in the conquest of the empire of the Hsia in China.The Outline of History: Being a Plain History of Life and Mankind
