Han Wu-Ti (c.169-c.87 BC) – Han emperor of China (140—87 BC)
Han Wu-Ti was one of the greatest emperors of the celebrated Han Dynasty in China. He ruled western China from about 140 to about 87 BC. During his reign he conquered Manchuria, Korea and parts of southern China and added them to the empire. He also re-structured the central government, curbing the powers of the landlord class by monopolizing the striking of coinage. He accepted much of the teaching of Confucius (p. 14), which of course made him popular with scholars and other educated people. But it was a large empire and it could only be held together by a firm and dictatorial hand.
