Zhu Wen

▪ emperor of Later Liang dynasty
Wade-Giles romanization  Chu Wen , also called  Zhu Quanzhong , later  Zhu Huang , temple name (miaohao)  (Hou Liang) Taizu 
born 852, Dangshan [now in Anhui province], China
died 912, Kaifeng, Henan province

      Chinese general who usurped the throne of the last emperor of the Tang dynasty (618–907) and proclaimed himself the first emperor of the Hou (Later) Liang dynasty (907–923).

      Originally, Zhu Wen was a follower of the great Tang rebel Huang Chao (d. 884), but at an opportune time he surrendered his forces to government troops and was rewarded with the governorship of the strategic region around Kaifeng, in central China. After the defeat of Huang Chao, there ensued a struggle for control of North China between Zhu Wen and the Turkish general Li Keyong (d. 908), who had defeated Huang Chao. Zhu Wen emerged victorious and forced the Tang emperor, Zhaozong, to move the capital from Chang'an (present-day Xi'an) to Zhu's own residence at Luoyang. In 904 he murdered the emperor and all his sons with the exception of a boy of 13, who was placed on the throne as the Aidi emperor and was forced to abdicate to Zhu in 907. Zhu then proclaimed himself first emperor of the Hou Liang dynasty. Five years later he was murdered by his own eldest son, who succeeded him on the throne.
