The Emperor’s Heart

The Qianlong Emperor in Ceremonial Armour on Horseback

The Qianlong Emperor

Once upon a time an emperor besieged a town. All the men were to be executed and all the homes burned. The people beseeched him to spare them.

He decided to let the women go. He ordered the women to go into their homes and he would allow them to keep whatever they could carry.

They came out of their houses carrying their husbands and children on their backs. The emperor finally saw the courage of family love and spared everyone.
