Emperor Wu, Zhu Houzhao

No. 11 Wu Zong, Zhu Houzhao -- 1506- 1521
Emperor Ming Dynasty

Emperor Wu (Zhu Houzhao) presented himself as temperament quite the opposite of his father, Xiaozong. Not interested in the state affairs, he often preferred indulging himself in costly pleasures. When it came to decision-making, he handed over the control of state completely to the eunuchs to their great delight. He died without a direct heir.
