Tomb of murderous Chinese emperor finally identified

While excavating a mausoleum in Luoyang, China, archaeologists discovered an artifact that may finally confirm that a mysterious tomb belongs to Emperor Liu Zhi (reign A.D. 146-168), also known as Emperor Huan.

Archaeologists have known about the mausoleum for many years and have long speculated that it may be that of Liu Zhi, but a seal discovered during the recent excavations may finally prove it. The seal contains the name of Emperor Liu Hong, Liu Zhi’s successor. Historical records analyzed by the researchers say Liu Hong constructed a mausoleum for Liu Zhi after his death, and the presence of this seal at the mausoleum suggests that it is that of Liu Zhi.
