Wu Sangui (1612 October 2, 1678) was a Ming Chinese general who was instrumental in the succession of rule to the Qing Dynasty in 1644. In 1644, Wu opened the gates of the Great Wall of China at Shanhai Pass to let Manchu soldiers, enemies of the Empire which he served, into China proper. He was rewarded with the position of Pingxi Wang in Yunnan by the Qing imperial court, after he conquered the region from the remnants of Ming loyalists. It had been extremely rare for someone outside of the royal family, especially a non-Manchu, to be granted the title of Wang (king). In 1673, the Emperor Kangxi decided to make Wu Sangui and two other princes who had been rewarded with large fiefs in southern and western China, move from their lands to resettle in Manchuria. As a result, the three revolted and thus began the 8-year civil war known as the Revolt of the Three Feudatories (also known as the San-fan War). Wu declared himself Emperor of China as ruler of the Zhou Dynasty in 1678, but his
revolt was quelled by the Qing Kangxi Emperor.
