Description
In their time they were the most powerful rulers on earth, including the mighty Qin Shi Huangdu, who ruled from 221 until 210 BC and began the construction of the Great Wall; the long-lived Han emperor Wudi, who between 141 and 87 BC developed China as a centralized Confucian state; the soldier-scholar Yongle, who raised the Ming dynasty to its military peak in the early 15th century AD; and the dowager empress Cixi, the near-contemporary of Queen Victoria, who rose from humble Manchu origins to rule China for nearly 60 years. These are just a few of the more than 150 profiles in this fascinating history of imperial China, seen through its leaders.
