Ch: Han Wudi (159-87 BC). The literary Emperor Wu of Han. The seventh emperor of the Former Han (Jp: Zenkan O), who ruled from 141-87 BC. Many well-known, Chinese historical figures were pulled into his political and cultural orbit, including Su Wu (Jp: So Bu h) and Li Ling (Jp: Ri Ryou ; see *So Ri kestubetsu h), Zhu Maichen (Jp: *Shu Baishin 锃b), and Dongfang Shuo (Jp:*Toubou Saku ). Wudi is associated also with the Queen Mother of the West (Jp: Seioubo ; see *Seioubo Tououfu E) and sometimes is included in paintings of her. The emperor was portrayed in the didactic painting theme Mirror of Good and Bad Emperors *teikan-zu Ӑ} and also in formal portraits. One such portrait by Kanou Tan'yuu TH (1602-74) shows Wudi together with the Queen Mother of the West as well as his minister Zhang Baifang (Jp: Chou Hakubou [).
