China's Most Learned and Cultured Emperor (Chinese History)


Given his ability to read and write by the age of 5 and the long hours he devoted to studying throughout his life, it's no surprise that Emperor Kangxi was regarded as the most learned and cultured emperor in Chinese history.
I must admit I was surprised to learn that his openness for learning was partially influenced by the Western culture. Anyway, I hope you find this short documentary on Emperor Kangxi as inspiring as I did!
