Ruled (194-188 BC)

Han Ruler and Emperor Biographies
Authoring and Translation by

In the year 194 BC, Liu Bang passed away and was succeeded by the new Emperor Hui-di, who at that time was only seventeen years old.

Liu Ying always had a weak body and mind. During his father’s reign he often thought of giving the right of succession to Liu Ruyi (the Prince of Zhao, son of Lady Qi). But the senior officers opposed this idea. With the help of Zhang Liang, Liu Ying stabilized his position.

Hui-di was a puppet Emperor under Empress Lü and died in the year 188 BC, which ended his short seven year reign as Han Emperor.
