Yu Qian 2017-05-11
Renowned as 'Three Heroes of West Lake' together with Yue Fei, Zhang Huangyan, Yu Qian is the native of the current Hangzhou city which was known back then as Qiantang County. Just like Yue Fei, Yu Qian was executed wrongly for political reasons and was posthumously rehabilitated. Yu Qian started his political life at the age of 23 and got promoted several times after suppressing a rebellion by the prince of Han together with the Xuanzong Emperor of the Ming Dynasty in 1421. During his lifetime, he has been framed twice. At the first time, he offended the influential court eunuch and was thrown into prison, however, was released later for the pressure put on the government by the populace. At the second time, he was unable to get way. In 1449, he played an important role in leading the defense of the capital Beijing from attacks of the Mongols who had earlier captured the then emperor of the Ming Dynasty – Yingzong was captured. Later, the Mongols threatened the life of Yingzong Emperor to seal an unfair deal and was rejected by Yu Qian because he thought the country is more important than the emperor. Later, Yingzong was released and restored his throne who then executed Yu Qian for treason.
