Format of naming convention in English is under discussion at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (Chinese).



Emperor Shun of Han China, trad. ch. 漢順帝;, sim. ch. 漢顺帝, py. hn shn d, wg. Han Shun-ti, (115-144) was an emperor of the Chinese Han Dynasty and the seventh emperor of the Eastern Han period. He reigned from 125 AD to 144 AD.

Shun was the son and heir of Emperor An and after An died in 125 AD, the Empress dowager Yan was childless but yearning to hold on to power, forced Shun (who was then the crown prince) to give up the throne in favour of Liu Yi. Liu Yi died after reigning less than 7 months and with the aid of corrupt eunuchs such as Cao Teng and Sun Cheng, Shun was finally declared emperor.

Shun was only a child of 10 at the time and since his ascension to the throne was a direct result of help from corrupt officials, affairs of state never fell into Shun's hand. Moreover, these dangerous patterns of corrupt officials vying for power versus dowager empresses hunger to retain power repeated themselves many times throughout the 2nd century and hasten the downfall of the Han dynasty.

Emperor Shun died at the age of 30 after reigning for 19 years. He was succeeded by his son.
