The Shenyang Palace was built in 1625, just as the Manchus were launching their triumphant China tour. Sprawling over 60,000 square meters, 100 buildings and 500 rooms, the palace was meant to show one and all that these new rulers from the north were not just another clan of horse-mounted toughs. Now it’s a museum, and features this jade seal bearing the title of the Taizong emperor. But it reads “Wendi” – royals in China get a new name in China after they die.
