Huizong (1060–1086) was Emperor of Western Xia (1067–1086)
After his father's sudden death, Huizong assumed the throne at the young age of six. His mother became the regent for the rest of Huizong's reign. In 1076, Huizong turned sixteen, and was supposed to assume direct control of the throne, but was stopped by the enormous influence of the Dowager. He was depressed by the control of his mother, and Huizong later died at the young age of 26.
Huizong was succeeded by Emperor Chongzong of Western Xia
WESTERN HSIA DYNASTY
This was a dynasty of the Tangut people. Their capital was in Kansu Province, but it is not certain if their capital was in Kanchow or Soochow. In AD 1227, after breaking a promise to support Genghis Khan, this dynasty was exterminated.
