What does YAN mean?

Yan was a state during the Western Zhou, Spring and Autumn and Warring States periods of Chinese history. Its capital was Ji. During the Warring States period, the capital was also moved to its lower capital at Xiadu at times, which was the largest city in terms of area at the time. The history of Yan began in the Western Zhou. After the authority of the Zhou king declined during the Spring and Autumn Period, Yan survived and became one of the strongest states in China. During the Warring States period, Yan was one of the last states to be conquered by the armies of Qin Shihuang: Yan fell in 222 BC, immediately before the founding of the Qin dynasty. Yan experienced a brief period of independence after the collapse of the Qin dynasty, but was eventually absorbed by the victorious Western Han Dynasty.
