I knew one, Ming, and guessed ten by typing in chinese names or surnames. Just shows what we don't learn in Western education systems.

You're correct. There are no primary documents to support the existence of the Xia, which is why the Quizmaster wrote the disclaimer that older dynasties are legendary.

I don't think Li Zicheng really had enough consolidated power for it to be considered a real dynasty, especially since remnants of the Ming were still fighting. Plus, according to Wikipedia Li never went by the title 皇帝 (emperor).

A dynasty is a line of hereditary rulers. Empress Wu was the only person in the Second Zhou dynasty. Therefore, she did not establish a line of rulers, and so did not create a dynasty. Wu failed to establish a succession.
