南(nán)京(jīng)被(bèi)称(chēng)为(wéi)六(liù)朝(cháo)古(gǔ)都(dū)。

Meaning: Six dynasties founded their capitals in Nanjing.

Explanation: In the nearly 400 years starting from Wu in the Three Kingdoms Period, six dynasties (Wu, Eastern Jin, Song, Qi, Liang, Chen) founded their capitals in Nanjing successively, thus the descendants called Nanjing "the ancient capital of six dynasties"; In addition, the South Tang, Ming, the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, and the Kuomintang government also built capital here, so Nanjing also has the name of "capital of ten regimes”.
