(1711 - 1799)

Qianlong, the fourth emperor of the Qing dynasty, was nearly six feet tall and ruled China for six decades, fathering twenty-seven children over the course of his life. He sponsored the compilation of an extensive library of classics and also ordered the suppression of many texts he considered harmful to his reign, a number that apparently topped two thousand.
