A savior of the Manchu dynasty in 1862.

Prince Kung was the older, wiser, more sober half-brother of the dissolute Hsien Feng emperor. His quick action and a hard-fought deal with the European invaders stabilized the national chaos while at the same time negotiating the safety and security of the Imperial throne.
