The Chongzhen Emperor 1628-1644 AD

 

The Chongzhen Emperor ( 崇禎) (6 February 1611 – 25 April 1644) was the 16th and last emperor of the Ming dynasty in China. He reigned from 1627 to 1644, under an era name that means "honorable and auspicious".

In April 1644, the imperial court finally ordered Wu Sangui to move his army south from his fortress at Ningyuan to Shanhai Pass. It was too late, however, and Wu would not reach Shanhai Pass until April 26. Word reached Beijing that Shun rebels were approaching the capital through Juyong Pass, and the Chongzhen Emperor held his last audience with his ministers on April 23. Li Zicheng offered Chongzhen an opportunity to surrender, but the negotiations produced no result. Li commanded his forces to attack on April 24. Rather than face capture by the rebels, Chongzhen gathered all members of the imperial household except his sons. Using his sword, he killed Consort Yuan and Princess Kunyi, and severed the arm of Princess Changping. The empress hanged herself.
