Emperor Qianlong of Qing Dynasty 2017-05-11
Qianlong Emperor (September 9, 1711 - February 7, 1799) is a prestigious emperor of the later stage of China's feudal society and the sixth emperor of the Qing Dynasty. He had been in power for 63 year and 4 months, with 60 years ruling as an emperor and 3 years and 4 months as a retired one, making him the emperor wielding the supreme power of a country for the longest time in Chinese history. He is also the most long-lived emperor in Chinese history.

His contributions to China are enormous. Under his rule, China had reached its height: the tough task of uniting the country was accomplished and both country’s economy and culture boomed.

Just as did his grandfather - Kangxi Emperor, Qianlong Emperor undertook six southern inspection tours, and Hangzhou always made itself upon his itinerary. During his six tours, he had enjoyed the picturesque West Lake, had visited Buddhist Temples nestled among mountains around West Lake and tasted the fragrant Longjing Green Tea … His admiration for West Lake can still be spotted in his poems depicting the beauty of West Lake on the steles overlooking the Top Ten Views of West Lake and the eighteen imperial tea bushes standing erect in Longjing Village.
