Article needs tidying up[edit]

At the moment the article has too many inconsistencies and poorly worded sentences. For example the lead sentence is not even a proper sentence, and contains facts that contradict what's written elsewhere. Was he born in 260 BC or 259 BC (as stated in Birth and childhood section), and is it 18 February (Birth section) or 7 February (infobox)? Did he died on September 10, 210 BC or 10 August 210 BC (according to the infobox)? I can try to fix a few things but we probably need to decide which date to use and determine which source is more reliable.

I've tried adjusting some sentences, and removed some dubious claims - for example, one editor tried to make unsourced claim about the Japanese Hata Clan being Qin Shi Huang's true descendants, and that all other Chinese dynasties are illegitimate (implying that the Japanese have a more legitimate claim on the Chinese throne, something that may be considered offensive to the Chinese given the history between the two countries).

OK, I've decided to remove some of the dates. It's confusing to have conflicting dates in the same article. I expect it's a problem that comes from converting dates from Chinese into Western ones, but I hope someone will have more definitive dates. Hzh (talk) 20:59, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

I just wanna know, which date is the real one. Cause there is two dates for his dates : -220 and -210 so it changes from 40 to 50 his death age.... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Momo63904 (talkcontribs) 09:26, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
