Emperor Wu of Han Net Worth

Emperor Wu of Han was born in Chang'an, Chinese, is Emperor of China. Wudi is the posthumous name of Emperor Wu of Han who was the seventh emperor of the Han dynasty of China; he ruled from 141–87 BC. His reign lasted over half a century and is one of the longest reigns in Chinese history. A famed military campaigner, Wudi led his armies on great expeditions that resulted in vast expansion of the territories under his rule. The autocratic emperor with his ruthless campaigning brought Southern China and northern and central Vietnam under his control and was successful in re-conquering northern and central Korea which had slipped out of Chinese control. Even though he was able to considerably expand his empire through his aggressive military campaigns, these wars also depleted much of the empire’s reserves and wealth. He declared new taxes and implemented new business policies to increase the state’s income which made him unpopular among the citizens. Even though marked by prosperity in the beginning, the final years of his reign were filled with financial difficulties and political unrest. Wudi was also known for his introduction of various religious and cultural changes into the society. He made Confucianism the state religion of China, and was obsessed with finding the path to immortality

Biography/Timeline

2012

Emperor Wu carried out an invasion of the Korean Peninsula and established the Commandery of Canghai, but abandoned it in 126 BC. Some of the military colonies established at that time survived into the 4th century, leaving behind various particularly well-preserved funerary artefacts.

2013

The failure of the Mayi operation prompted Emperor Wu to switch the Han army's doctrine from the traditionally more defensive chariot–infantry warfare to a highly mobile and offensive cavalry-against-cavalry warfare. At the same time, he expanded and trained officers from his royal guards.

2014

In 104 BC, Emperor Wu built the luxurious Jianzhang Palace (建章宮) — a massive structure that was intended to make him closer to the gods. He later resided at that palace exclusively, rather than the traditional Weiyang Palace, which Xiao He had built during the reign of Emperor Gao.
