    It was said that he ordered his officers to execute his son for having a child with his wet nurse, but when they refused, he went into a fit of madness that killed him.
    Having a Chinese father, a Japanese mother, African and Indian bodyguards, and Dutch and Spanish enemies, he was quite a cosmopolitan individual at a time when China was rigidly isolationist.
