ict on the Occasion of Emperor Qianlong’s 80th Birthday

mperor Qianlong’s six-decade reign was a period of remarkable statecraft and military prowess. There were two successful pacification campaigns separately over the chiefdoms of Jinchuan, Dzungar, and Ghurka. The Qing army also won battles in Altishahr (mostly in present-day Xinjiang), Taiwan, Burma, and Annam. Collectively, these victories were billed as the Ten Feats, which inspired the emperor to author an account and describe himself with the epithet Elder with Ten Feats (Shichuan Laoren). In 1790, Qianlong celebrated his 80th birthday and issued this edict. On this occasion, envoys from tributary countries including Joseon, Ryuku, and Burma came to pay homage and present gifts.
