in the world. The number eight (8 (number)) is considered lucky in China, as it is similar to the Cantonese (Cantonese language) word for "getting rich". Born in Sichuan province, Li studied at the Central Military Academy in Wuhan and completed his undergraduate studies in economics at Waseda University. He was elected as the Kuomintang candidate in 1948 to represent the municipality of Chengdu in Sichuan province in the Legislative Yuan of the Republic of China. He held this seat from 1948 until 1991, even after fleeing to Taiwan with the Nationalist government in 1949 at the end of the Chinese Civil War. Legislative Yuan page on committee assignments . Both Li Qi and Li Yue became apprehensive of their father's cousin Li Shou the Prince of Han (the son of Li Xiong's uncle Li Xiang (李驤)), the most honored Cheng Han general. Li Shou was aware of this and was afraid that he would be the next target of execution, and so whenever he visited the capital Chengdu from his defense post of Fucheng (涪城, in modern Mianyang, Sichuan), he would order his subordinates to falsely report invasions by either Later Zhao or Jin (Jin Dynasty (265-420)), so that he could quickly return. By 338, under the advice of the hermit Gong Zhuang (龔壯), he planned an attack on Chengdu with his advisors Luo Heng (羅恆) and Jie Siming (解思明), with the pledge that after success, he would become a Jin vassal. He then forged a letter from his brother-in-law Ren Diao (任調) stating that Li Qi was planning to execute Li Shou, and he showed the letter to his soldiers. The soldiers believed him, and they then made a surprise attack on Chengdu, catching Li Qi unprepared. Li Shou's heir apparent Li Shi, an officer in the capital guards, opened the city gates and welcomed Li Shou in. Li Shou arrested Li Yue and other officials Li Qi trusted and forced Li Qi to order their execution. He then forged an edict from Empress Dowager Ren deposing Li Qi and demoting him to the title Duke of Qiongdu. Li Shou, after some hesitation about whether to take the throne or whether to become a Jin vassal, eventually took the throne and changed the name of the state to Han, showing a break from Li Xiong's regime. During his reign, Li Qi was constantly suspicious of possible rebellions, and Li Shou frequently worried that Li Qi would kill him, as both Li Qi and Li Yue were apprehensive of him. Therefore, whenever he had to visit the capital Chengdu, he had his subordinates submit false report of attacks by Later Zhao, so that he could then return to his defense post. In 338, Li Shou consulted the hermit Gong Zhuang (龔壯), who advised him to rebel and to declare himself a Jin vassal. Li Shou then further planned an attack with his advisors Luo Heng (羅恆) and Jie Siming (解思明). Li Qi, hearing some rumors of this, several times sent the eunuch Xu Fu (許涪) to spy on Li Shou and also poisoned Li Shou's adoptive brother Li You (李攸). Li Shou, in response, forged a letter from his brother-in-law Ren Diao (任調), which stated that Li Qi was about to arrest and kill Li Shou; he then showed the letter to his soldiers. His soldiers believed the letter and agreed to march on Chengdu. '''Li Shi''' (李勢) (died 361), courtesy name '''Ziren''' (子仁), historically known by his Jin Dynasty (265-420)-bestowed title '''Marquess of Guiyi''' (歸義侯), was the last emperor of the Chinese (History of China) Ba (Ba (state))-Di (Di (ethnic group)) state Cheng Han. During his reign, the Cheng Han state continued the deterioration that occurred through his father Li Shou's reign, and in 347, Li Shi's forces failed against the Jin expedition force commanded by Huan Wen. Li Shi fled the capital Chengdu but eventually surrendered, and Emperor Mu of Jin spared him and created him a marquess, a title he carried for the rest of his life. Before reign Li Shi was a son of Li Shou and his concubine Consort Li. As Li Shou was a cousin of Cheng Han's founding emperor Li Xiong and an honored general, Li Shi himself was an army officer, and he was much favored by the emperor Li Qi, who made him an officer in the capital guard corps. When Li Shou rebelled against Li Qi in 338 and attacked the capital Chengdu, Li Shi opened the gates to allow Li Shou's army in, leading to Li Qi's defeat and subsequent removal by Li Shou. After Li Shou declared himself emperor later that year, he created Li Shi crown prince. - Chengdu Shu (Shu (state)) Commons:Category:Chengdu Wikipedia:Chengdu Dmoz:Regional Asia China Sichuan Chengdu
