Ming Emperor Zhengde (Zhu Houzhao)
Emperor Zhengde was Emperor Hongzhi's sigleton. He was born in 4th year of Emperor Hongzhi's reign, died in 16th year of his reign.
He was a smart boy in his childhood. His father, Emperor Hongzhi hoped him to become a wise emperor. But when he grown up, he specially trusted treacherous court officials, and larked all day. Because he was the only son, he didn't worry about if he can be the new emperor. Later, he thought that being an emperor was not fun enough, so he appointed himself as a general, and gave himself a new name - Zhu Shou. While a clan called Dada in Mongolia was invating the frontier, he led the army as a general. In the battle, he killed an enemy himself. He was very satisfied for his battle achievement, so he appointed himself as a "Tai ShiĦħ (name of a kind of high offical in ancient china).
Because of he acted wildly against law and public opinion, his uncle Duke Ning in Nanjing revolted. He led the army to suppress the rebellion. On his way to Nanjing, he was told that the rebellion was suppressed. He acted that he didn't know anything, and went on going to Nanjing. He organized a ceremony of accepting prisoners. He let his uncle go, and directed his soldier to catch his uncle. He felt that wasn't enough, so he let his uncle go again, and caught his uncle himself. He didn't stop until his high officer advised him.
On his way back to Beijing, the emperor went fishing himself at Qingjiangpu. Because of his inattention, he fell into water. Soon he was ill, and he died soon after came back to Beijing.
