The Deadly Attempt to Assassinate Qin Shi Huang

The Emperor or Huangdi was the secular imperial title of the Chinese sovereign reigning between the founding of the Qin dynasty that unified China in 221 BCE and the abdication of Puyi in 1912 CE following the Xinhai Revolution and the establishment of the Republic of China, although it was later restored twice in two failed revolutions in 1916 and 1917. The holy title of Chinese emperor was the Son of Heaven, a title much older than the Emperor of China which predates the Zhou Dynasty and recognized as the ruler of "All under Heaven". In practice not every Emperor held supreme power in China, although this was usually the case.
