Ruyi

Ruyi

The period of the late Ming (from the mid-16th century to its decline) was marked by weak emperors, passivity, poor administration, decadence and corruption. The first years of Wanli’s rule (1563–1620) were a time of prosperity for the state, at least until it was run by the head imperial official Zhang Juhzeng. When this political father of the emperor died, however, the eunuchs regained control and the emperor lost interest in governing. The state soon fell into financial difficulties, primarily because of Wanli’s great investments in constructions and sumptuous ceremonies, as well as lavishing prominent members of his family with expensive gifts. In spite of this, the overseas trading and the influx of money from Japan and Spanish America still enabled great prosperity in some parts of the empire.

Ruyi z žadastim medaljonom:
Obdobje pozne dinastije Ming (od sredine 16. stoletja do njenega propada) so zaznamovali šibki cesarji, pasivnost, slaba administracija, dekadenca in korupcija.
V prvih letih vladavine cesarja Wanlija (1563–1620) je bila država, dokler jo je še vodil glavni cesarski uradnik Zhang Juzheng, v razcvetu. Ko pa je cesarjev politični oče umrl, so evnuhi prevzeli oblast in cesarjevo zanimanje za vladarske posle se je hitro zmanjšalo. Finančno je država propadala, predvsem zaradi Wanlijevega razsipnega vlaganja v gradnjo, razkošnih praznovanj in razvajanja pomembnejših družinskih članov z dragimi darili. Kljub temu je po zaslugi prekomorske trgovine ter pritoka denarja z Japonske in srebra iz španske Amerike cesarstvo še vedno živelo v precejšnjem obilju.
