'''Kau Keng Shan''' has a height of 507 metres. During the Ming dynasty, the area around the hill was used as a defense position against foreign forces, especially the Portuguese (Portugal), who had occupied Tuen Mun from 1514 to 1521. In the first year of the reign of the Yongle Emperor (Ming dynasty, reigned 1402–1424), the prominent historian Fāng Xìao-rú (方孝孺 (:zh:方孝孺)) committed an offense worthy of the "extermination of nine kindreds" for refusing to write the inaugural address (inauguration) and for insulting the Emperor. He was recorded as saying in defiance to the would-be Emperor: "莫說九族,十族何妨!" ("Never mind nine agnates, go ahead with ten!"). Thus he was granted his wish with an infamous case, perhaps the only one, of "extermination of ten kindreds" (誅十族) in the history of China. In addition to the blood relations from his nine-agnates family hierarchy, his students and peers were added to be the tenth group. Altogether 873 people were said to have been executed. Nature of the Code The traditional Chinese law was largely in place by Qing dynasty. The process of amalgamation of Confucian views and law codes was considered complete by the ''Tang Code'' of CE 624. The code was regarded as a model of precision and clarity in terms of drafting and structure. Confucianism in revised form (Neo-Confucianism) continued to be the state orthodoxy under the Song (Song dynasty), Ming (Ming dynasty) and Qing (Qing dynasty) Dynasty. Throughout the centuries the Confucian foundations of the ''Tang Code'' were retained with even some aspects strengthened. K'o-ssu first appeared during the Tang Dynasty (618–907), and became popular in the Southern Song Dynasty (1127–1279), reaching its height during the Ming dynasty (1368–1644). The style continued to be popular until the early 20th century, and the end of the Qing Dynasty in 1911–12. territory result Decisive Ming (Ming dynasty) victory, Zhu Yuanzhang (Hongwu Emperor) gained mastery over the Yangtze (Yangtze River) valley a combatant1 Han rebel navy According to a legend by the local Torghut population, in 1372 a Mongol military general named Khara Bator ( , 1521–1556) was a Ming dynasty scholar.
