▪ emperor of Qing dynasty
Wade-Giles romanization  Shun-chih , personal name (xingming)  Fulin , temple name (miaohao)  Shizu , posthumous name (shi)  Zhangdi 
born March 15, 1638, Manchuria [now Northeast China]
died Feb. 5, 1661, Beijing, China

      reign name (nianhao) of the first emperor (reigned 1644–61) of the Qing (Manchu) dynasty (Qing dynasty) (1644–1911/12).

      The ninth son of Abahai (1592–1643), the great ruler of the Manchu kingdom of Manchuria, Fulin succeeded to the throne in 1643 at the age of five (six by Chinese reckoning) and ruled under the regency of Dorgon (1612–50), a paternal uncle. In 1644, Manchu troops under Dorgon's command captured Beijing, the former capital of the Ming dynasty (1368–1644), and the young ruler was proclaimed emperor of the Qing dynasty with the reign title of Shunzhi. Dorgon continued to exercise absolute authority, however, until his death in 1650. By this time, the conquest of North China had been completed, and in 1659 Shunzhi's armies drove the last Ming remnants from South China, leaving Ming supporters occupying only the island of Taiwan.

      Shunzhi was close to the German Jesuit missionary Adam Schall von Bell (Schall von Bell, Adam) (Chinese name Tang Ruowang), whom he called mafa (“grandfather”). The emperor frequently sought Schall's counsel, and he gave Schall permission to build a Roman Catholic church in Beijing, occasionally attending services himself. Although Schall remained an intimate adviser, after 1657 the emperor turned increasingly to Chan (Zen) Buddhism.

      A kindly man, the emperor Shunzhi was strongly influenced by eunuch officials and Buddhist priests. His major accomplishment was to increase the number of Chinese serving in the Manchu government. His death was clouded by rumours that the death of a favourite consort had caused him to retire to a Buddhist monastery.
