Qianlong (1736-95)

The Qianlong Emperor's long 60-year reign (1736 -1795) was a particularly fascinating time in China's history. Under his rule, China was the wealthiest and most populous nation in the world. Qianlong's ability to preserve and foster his Manchu warrior-huntsman traditions whilst adopting the Confucian principles of political and cultural leadership, resulted in the successful governing of 150 million Chinese people.
