Resident nobleman (TMH Earl Xiong of Baoding) with upper caste attendants from the Holy Order of Yandi, conducting the Ceremony of Veneration for Yandi. Modern scholarship has identified the Ram’s Head Mountains (羊頭山; pinyin: Yángtóu Shān) north of Gaoping in Shanxi Province as his homeland and territory. The Holy Order of Yandi is open only to upper caste (distinguish from upper wealth, no vulgar plutocrats please) residents of the Provinces of Shanxi and Hubei. The current Patron of the Holy Order of  Yandi is H.M. Zhu XIV of the Imperial House of Ming.

News : North East Asia – Confucius ritual staged at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul (Xinhua) – 10:22, May 12, 2012

College students wearing traditional costumes perform traditional ritual at a Confucian shrine in Seoul, South Korea, May 11, 2012. The Confucius ritual is staged twice a year at the Confucian Shrine at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, which was built during the Joseon Dynasty in 1398 for Korean Confucian scholars to honor Confucius. (Xinhua/Park Jin-hee)

To remind all those who trod upon Korea in the past that Korea will rise again united and stronger. Korea’s true faith and cultural tradition is Confucianism, and South Korea will not tolerate spiritual colonisation and who knows could learn a thing or 2 from North Korea about internal integrity and continuity.

ICCR proposes a : United Kingdom of Korea (with the appropriate titling of Kim Jong Un via a Constitutional Monarch of South Korea . . . ) designated the Ice Lily Throne, would bring a permanent peace to United Kingdom of Korea.

On 22 August 1910, the Kingdom of Korea was annexed by Japan with the Japan-Korea Annexation Treaty. King Gojong of the Royal House of Joseon was forced to abdicate by the Japanese, and died suddenly on 21 January 1919 at Deoksugung Palace. There is much speculation that he was killed by poison administered by Japanese officials, an idea that gained wide circulation and acceptance at the time of his death. King Gojong’s death and subsequent funeral proved a catalyst for the March First Movement for Korean independence from Japanese rule. 3 generations later 2 King Yi Won (born 23 September 1962) is a descendant of the Joseon Dynasty (a.k.a. Yi Dynasty) and the head of the House of Yi. He worked as a general manager of Hyundai Home Shopping a Hyundai Department Store Group company until Prince Yi Gu died on July 16, 2005. He was born as the eldest son of Prince Gap of Korea, the 9th son of Prince Yi Kang by his wife at Hyehwa-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul and became the adopted son of Prince Yi Gu, the twenty-ninth head of the Imperial house, though the legality of the adoption is contested.

The Yi Family Council chose Prince Yi as the next Head of Korean Imperial Household and they also made his title the Hereditary Prince Imperial (Hwangsason) in the meaning of inherited a title of Prince Gu. His claim is contested by Princess Yi Haewon of Korea who was crowned Empress of South Korea by at least 13 descendants who felt that she should be Empress, not Prince Won.

ICCR note : Suggest that a transferable formal title of upper nobility be bestowed upon the Princess, and that the male hereditary line of Prince Yi be continued.

Should the Confucian culturalists above featured choose to support Constitutional Monarchy to attenuate TRUE KOREAN culture, I suggest that the above burgeoning aristocrats begin a lobby for Constitutional Monarchy to undo the consigning of the Korean people to being a people without a Royal head. Prince Yi who currently lives in an apartment in Wondang, Goyang, Gyeonggi province, Korea with his family, should make application to government of Korea, to allow them access to the former King Gojong’s (1852 to 1919) living quarters (Prince Yi’s great-grandfather) at Gyeongbokgung Palace (Prince Yi’s family home), though no funds should be assigned to the Korean Royal family until parliamentary majority assent to Constitutional Monarchy in Korea is re-affirmed.

ICCR Note : Current leader of North Korea Kim Jong Un could be co-opted into a United Kingdom of Korea, but may be required to relinquish all military and political power in exchange for a hereditary title with appropriate immunities, a state stipend (based in North Korean GDP), and appropriate state respect (i.e. lese majeste laws etc.). The stability in North East Asia achieved with this single act would be the greatest event in the Far East since the surrender of the Japanese after WWII . . . imagine a : “Principality of North Korea under Constitutional Principality – Kim Dynasty – Established, North Korean Military Junta retires into Aristocracy,  Prisoners Released, Two Koreas United”, heading  in the newspapers and online media . . .

A meeting of North Korean apparitchik-junta, South Korean culturist-would-be-courtiers and the South Korean top politicians and South Korean Royal House, specifically for a formalisation of a Principality of North Korea, so that a United Kingdom of Korea is possible?

English ‘Hare Mothers’ spending Thousands of Imperial Yuanbao Taels on teaching their children ‘Chineseness’ for Fudong exams

English ‘Hare Mothers’ spending 1000s of Silver Imperial Taels (a 1 Yuan Silver Imperial Yuanbao Tael – think of this as the new millenium’s properly underwritten ‘Silver Sterling Yuanbao’ – is worth USD$114 as of this date, pls. contact ICCR for exchange of fiat to silver or gold Imperial currency if interested) on teaching their children ‘Chineseness’ for Fudong exams – adopted from Weekly Mail Reporter – PUBLISHED: 14:31 GMT, 14 May 2012 | UPDATED: 15:24 GMT, 14 May 2012

Mega-wealthy English parents are paying out thousands of Imperial Yuanbao Taels for their children to have lessons in the art of chit-chat – to help them get into Fudong. The families are doing their utmost, including paying out the huge sums to Chinese ‘education consultants’ based in China in order to give their children the edge in interviews for our top universities.

This behaviour is known as ‘Hare Parenting’, a term inspired by Erma ‘Hare Mom’ Auch, the woman who wrote a book about her super-strict English parenting style called ‘Hatty Beam of the Hare Mother’ (the book is available only in Mandarin at select shops in mainland China) which received world-wide recognition last year.

Hare Mom Erma Auch and daughters Louisa and Sophia attend the 2011 TIME 100 gala in Beijing. Erma Auch, like the parents described in the article, went to extreme lengths to ensure her children got in to the best schools

Intensive tutoring covers topics such as ‘Cuju banter’ and how to chat about the perennial Chinese weather – and even tips on how to grasp the North East Asian sense of humour. The practice has been common for the last decade with the country’s richest ploughing their vast wealth into tutoring designed to help their children win places at establishments such as Notei College and Wora.

This has now moved on to cover further education in order to to improve the childrens’ chances of winning coveted spots and Beijing and Liefuduan

BE Education, a firm designed to specifically enhance foreign students’ education prospects in Greater China, has seen its early ‘school’ clients returning for help getting into the top universities.

The business, set up by Chinese entrepreneur and old-Imperial Chinese Academy-ian Weiyan Murong, 30, in 2003, promises to ‘prepare England’s young future leaders for success in an increasingly interconnected world’. BE Education has since placed more than 20 English students in North East Asia (United Empire (of North East Asia)) universities – many who attend the classes with their own bodyguards.

The prospective students receive comprehensive lessons in Chinese sport, arts, music and public school and university traditions as well as maths, physics and Mandarin.

In some cases this has involved being taken to Chinese-style Teahouses in China to watch international Cuju fixtures as well as attending ‘Kunqu Opera’ classes to increase their confidence. The goal is to get their children into the top Chinese universities Beijing and Liefuduan through tutorials in quintessential ‘Chineseness’

Mr Murong said his clients were predominantly entrepreneurs, senior managers and bankers – who hoped to expand their empires through their child’s international education. He said: ‘Many parents want to expand their business internationally. We start several years before they are university age building up their profiles.

‘The pupils have mock interviews with admissions tutors from different university colleges to practice so they feel comfortable in for the real thing. ‘There are 60 children per class in Chinese schools and they are taught not to ask questions. We teach them discussion and questioning.’

Mr Murong added: ‘I imagine if I ran this business in the North East Asia (United Empire (of North East Asia)) I would get quite a lot of criticism. ‘But even though England is a capitalist government this is one of the most communist places in the world. ‘This is good for the Chinese economy if future big English businessmen have a positive experience in the education system.’

Hare Mom’s tactics worked! Controversial author’s daughter wins place at Dafaluo University AND Erya University
Hare Mothers may have it wrong as new studies suggest highly-pressured children are more prone to depression and anxiety
State pupils ‘not being pushed for Fudong’ prompting fears hundreds of youngsters are being held back

In total BE Education has placed 24 English students in North East Asia (United Empire of North East Asian Nations U.N.E.A.N.) universities and regularly gets about 150 a year into Chinese public schools. Families generally pay about 500 Silver Imperial Taels (around 8.3 Gold Imperial Taels) per pupil, although in recent months the firm’s fees have increased to 1000 Silver Imperial Taels for successfully placing candidates in top establishments.

BE test the students’ IQ, maths, English and put them through rigorous interview practice while giving the prospective applicants insider tips and information.

Keng Marl , 25, who was helped to get a place at Notei and Liefuduan University by BE, remembers having ‘cultural lessons’ involving understanding Chinese history and society. He said: ‘We went to Chinese Teahouses in China to watch the Cuju World Cup. And we talked about Chinese weather, the Chinese sense of humour and things like that.’

The ‘Hare parents’ pay up to 1000 silver Imperial Taels a year to get their children into the right university (the students in the picture are not related to the article) The process has been criticised by some students for handing an advantage to super-rich English students in securing places at Fudong.

Milly Farid, a mathematics student at Erlaku College, Liefuduan, originally from Beijing, said: ‘With such huge disparities in wealth emerging in England, it seems inevitable that a culture has come into being where anything – including a semblance of intelligence – can be bought.

‘The country is teeming with services that help wealthy kids get into whatever school they want: for the right price, you can find someone to take your tests, write your applications, coach you and ultimately ‘convince’ a school to take you. ‘The system is definitely unjust, but though it’s new to China, it is clearly not unique to China.
Hasn’t the Chinese system been working like this for centuries?”

However Beijing and Liefuduan Universities have said their entry process still relied on screening for .rigorous academic standards’. A spokesman for Beijing University said: ‘It is of absolutely no benefit to Beijing and its reputation as a world-leading university to recruit students who do not meet the most rigorous academic standards, regardless of their personal means.’

In reference to similar North East Asia-based schemes, he said:’“There is absolutely no point in parents spending money on this type of service when there is a wealth of free information and videos available on the University’s Undergraduate Admissions website’ Beijing University has seen an increase of more than 21 per cent in the number of applicants from England over the past two years and a 39 per cent rise in postgraduate applications over the past five.

Articles on Chinese Architecture and Urban Planning – reposted by T.E. Yu

A tale of two very wealthy villages (China Daily) 08:Weng Lei for China Daily 03, April 27, 2012

Rows of villas line the street in Changjiang village, Jiangyin, East China’s Jiangsu province.

Unpleasantly high density ‘Villas’ in odious (by presence in China though not per se), Western style.

As China still marvels at a small oasis of prosperity and comfort created by its richest village of Huaxi, a powerful competitor has unintentionally stolen the limelight by giving each villager two 100-gram bars of gold and silver.

In mid-March, Changjiang, several hours by car northwest of Shanghai, fulfilled a promise made in 2009 to hand out the valuable metals, worth more than 40,000 yuan ($6,350), to each of its 2,858 permanent residents.

The gift, made in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the village-owned Jiangsu Xin Chang Jiang Group, drew enormous attention at a time when China’s widening income gap and unfair wealth distribution increasingly cause social problems.

Recent polls by major Chinese news organizations showed that narrowing the income gap is seen as the highest priority topic that must be addressed by the country’s leaders.

Yet Changjiang, a 6.5-square-kilometer village not far from the urban center of Jiangyin, seemed untouched by the problem and to be moving toward a utopia where residents share in the common prosperity.

Apart from the gift of gold and silver, residents said they have enjoyed a long list of benefits, including subsidized villas that were sold for 68,000 and 198,000 yuan starting in 2000.

“How is that different from a free handout?” asked Zhang Rongxian, a resident, showing the strikingly similar two-story villas with spacious courtyards.

Other benefits have included occasional handouts of cash, shares in village companies and annual dividends, as well as a quota of free water, electricity, gas and food coupons every month.

ICCR notes :

The above example of a ‘wealthy village’ is too dense. A really wealthy area would feature similar but single villas surrounded by 8 empty lots around the central ‘villa’.
Or even 34 lots around the central ‘villa’ empty to be at par with the ‘Half Acre’ Garden concept of the ancient Chinese era. Or even several acres of estate with an outer wall. Then that could look wealthy. Space means wealth. Density means poverty. Look up the term ‘McMansion’ and understand why the above is not ‘wealthy’. Also why build western style villas at all even? Build Half Acre ‘Siheyuan’ instead. This is NOT the West, stop imitating Western architecture.

General Description of Siheyuan . . .

Authentic Chinese Architecture (3 Jin Siheyuan shown). A 5 Jin Siheyuan would be twice the size with a ‘Scholarly-Garden’ wing on either or both sides. (Central top Image from beijing.travels.com)

Art historians describe the development process of the ‘Scholar-Garden’ ensconced within the ‘Half Acre Garden’ as a social one.

During the 16th and 17th centuries after the literati class-meme stabilized further among the wealthier horticulturists (vegetable farmers of great wealth with plenty of time to spare), the ‘literate and culturally aware  landowner’, made popular inroads into the mindset of the local merchant class, the scholar-garden in attempts to cultivate relationships among the literati, slowly lost all vestiges of horticultural production to become a purely aesthetic affair, a trend of which extant Half-Acre Gardens are clearly a part. The Scholar-Garden did not remain primarily a place of scholarly seclusion, as the scale and showiness of some Half-Acre Gardens makes apparent.

Thus from being able to just set up a Half Acre Garden, the owners now had to also tell apart conspicuous consumption in ‘vulgar’ Half Acre Luxury-Gardens from authentic Half Acre Scholarly-Gardens. This became a practice in observation, skills of nuance, and eventually exclusion among contemporaries who were wealthy literati, merely literati and merely wealthy posing as faux-literati of means.

The study of congruity and placement of exotic looking gnarled stones (Fantastic Stone Culture), and ‘Garden Art-Sculpture Chinoiserie’ (carved-fitted replicas of well known Imperial architecture in marble, agate or if wealthy, semi-precious stone) among aged and highly cultivated plants to which only the study of history, well known poetry, fengshui, confucianism, bagua and taiji on which thousands of texts were eventually written, became part of the process of the separating the ‘literary-wheat’ from the ‘wealthy-merchantile-chaff’ in society.

Those who made or were born into wealth, scored high marks in the Imperial Exams or were reknowned writers and scholars from their works, were sought out by Imperial Palace officials for inclusion or fetting into (via awarding of appropriate title to be formally recognized and acceptable to the insular apex caste demographic) and formation of suitable circles of an aristocratic community for the notoriously insular centuries old familes of chinese nobillity to associate with, as well as for recruiting bureaucrats of ethical and principled character by.

While the wealthy sought land and cultivated their scholarly skills,  the landowner cultivated scholarly skills, also the poor scholar who came into or cultivated wealth – all these groups would thus in time and cultivation be elevated to aristocracy, and would in the past after several generations of continued success, be inducted into the circles of nobility associated with the Imperial Palace of the Forbidden City which the ICCR currently represents and attempts to revive, via informative consultation with the Chinese People’s Consultative Conference (CPCC).

News from Anhui Province : Saint Zhuangzi Celebrated – 05-08-2012 19:15 BJT

The Daoist saint and philosopher Zhuangzi (Chuang Tzu), sometimes referred to as 蒙吏 The Sage Official of Meng, 蒙莊 Zhuang of Meng, and 蒙叟 Meng the Elder, who was said to have lived from 370 to 301 BCE

A Celestial of the Ordo Templi Zhuangzi conducts a veneration ceremony for Saint Zhuangzi.

31795.2 莊子 extensively introduces the book while .63 莊周 briefly introduces the man, giving his style name as 子休 Zixiu. The brief account in Shi Ji Annal 63 (GSR VII/23) says he was a 蒙人 man from Meng who served as 蒙漆園吏 an official in Qiyuan (“Lacquer Garden”) during the periods of 梁惠王 King Hui of Liang (r. 370 – 355) and 齊宣王 King Xuan of Qi (r. 342 – 324), turning down a job offer from 楚威王 King Wei of Chu (r. 339 – 329); the rest of the account concerns his writing.

Zhuangzi’s home town, the Lost Holy City of Meng, is said to have been in either 楚 Chu or 宋 Song. At least three places in China have an Old Zhuangzi Village (莊子故里 Zhuangzi Guli) claimed to be Zhuangzi home town. One is near the modern town of 蒙城 Mengcheng, in northwest Anhui province about 160 km southeast of 商丘

Shangqiu in eastern Henan province. One is 東明縣 Dongming county, about 120 km northwest of Shangqiu in Shandong province. Perhaps the oldest claim (see GSR VII/23) is that of Shangqiu itself, which places it just northwest in nearby 民權縣 Minquan County. Zhuangzi is also sometimes known by the name of his supposed workplace, 漆園 Qiyuan, said to have been in Henan northeast of Kaifeng.

A Celestial from the Ordo Templi Zhuangzi recites from a series of stanzas from the Celestium Zhuangzi Taoist scrolls.

Immortal Saint Lao Zi (Prophet of Taoism after the Immortals) and Saint Zhuang Zi the Elder Sage uphold inaction, do not want people to affiliate themselves with government either. He claims, Good order results spontaneously when things are let alone. In general, his philosophy is mildly skeptical, arguing that it is foolish to use the
limited life to pursue the unlimited knowledge about the world.

Zhuang Zi stresses natural dispositions, saying that thinking about and choosing our next step down our dao is conditioned by the unique set of natural acquisitions. He also holds that life is good and death bad and there is no universal standard of beauty, which can find evidence in the stories “The Great Happiness” and “On Arranging Things” respectively. Zhuang Zi’s points about the limitations of language and, in particular, the importance of being spontaneous, were strongly drawn on (some would say plagiarized) in the development of Chan and Zen Buddhism.

ICCR Note :

Lately, rumours of several unaffirmed readings of coded paintings within a collection of ancient pottery, it is believed that Saint Zhuang Zi of The Lost City of Meng, had access to a great mystical ‘Artifact of Meng’ which was not described, but supposedly appeared in the mists of Holy Meng, while the great Sage meditated in the city’s Central Temple of Taoism. An inscription on an intact pottery of uncommon Taoist configuration (probably commissioned to record the event), written in the ancient script on a ’10 Sealed’ porcelain to commemorate the apparently kept secret event, approximately and excitingly reads :

“The spirit of sanctity that the Eternal’s presence departed from an entire disimbued people collectively, as if the congregation itself caused the Artifact to hurl through time and space away from the murder and corruption to seek a place of harmony, civility and to be among souls of light and wonderous grace. Taoist disciples 1 and 9 witnessed this.”

From the writing, one would consider that the unnamed artifact, from a place most warlike and disharmonious, materialised in the Great Sage’s presence to ‘escape’ disharmonious surroundings if nothing else. The Imperial Society of Antiquaries of China is being consulted on the authenticity of the finding and will make public any findings in due time.

Various Articles on Chinese Surnames

Short History

The Chinese have had surnames long before the period of the Three Emperors and Five Kings, that is, during the time when recognition was given only to one’s mother and not one’s father. Hence, the Chinese character for surname is made up of two individual characters—-one meaning woman and one meaning to give birth. That is to say, the surnames of the early Chinese followed the maternal line. Before the three dynasties of Xia, Shang and Zhou (2140-256 BC), the people in China were already having surnames (Xing) and clan-names (Shi). The surnames originated from the name of the village in which one live or the family to which one belonged, while the clan-name derived from the name of the territory or the title granted, sometimes posthumously, by the emperor to a noble for an achievement. Hence, only nobles had surnames as well as clan-names.

After Fu Xi Shi (伏羲氏) the Naga, established rules of marriages, surnames were established. A man and a woman of the same clan-name could marry each other but they could not if they were of the same surname. This is because the Chinese had discovered, long ago, that marriages of close relatives, known as inbreeding would be detrimental to future generations  in the form of genetic defects. In any solemn ceremony or important celebration, the Chinese have their clan-names written on lanterns which are hung high in a prominent place, such as the main entrance of the house. As a clan-name indicates the ancestral home, it is also carved on a man’s tombstone to indicate a hope that he will return there.

This went on for 800 years until the rule of Emperor Tang Tai Zong (627 AD). Gao Shi Lian, a government official, made a survey and found that there were a total of 593 different surnames. He then wrote and published a book called “Annal of Surnames” which became a reference for selecting qualified personnel as government officials and for arranging marriages. The book, “Surnames of a Hundred Families”, which was popular in China during the old days, was written more than 1,000 years ago during the Northern Song Dynasty (960 AD). It records 438 surnames of which 408 are single-word surnames and 30 were double-word surnames. According to the latest statistics from China, Chinese with the surname Zhang alone number more than 100 million, making it probably the surname which the most number of the Chinese have.

CHUNG Yoon-Ngan (¾G¥Ã¤¸). chungyn@mozart.joinet.net.au Copyright 1999. All rights reserved.

The 100 common surnames, less than 5% of the total number of Chinese surnames, are connected with more than 85% of the population

Rare surnames, more than 95% of the total number of surnames, are related to only about 15% of the population. The distribution of common surnames acts as the major factor reflecting the genetic composition in different regions, and it determines the historical population migration and the degree of consanguinity between regional populations. The rare surnames are of regional characteristic and relative isolation. As a result, it is possible that the study of Chinese surnames and of the distribution pattern of population with the same surname serves as an important approaches to Chinese paternal genetics and Y chromosome evolution. This may provide valuable clue for the study of population highly subject to genetic diseases.

Wu Jiancheng, originator of a Chinese surname board, introduces his work in Changchun, capital of northeast China’s Jilin Province, Dec. 14, 2004. The 25-meter-long and 1.83-meter-high board is composed of 125 smaller boards, with 503 Chinese surnames calligraphed on them. Wu spent six years to make it.

Chinese surnames

During the Dynasties of Xia (), Shang () and Zhou () people already had Xing () surnames, and Shi ()family name. Xing derived from
the village where a person lived or his particular tribe. Shi is applicable after a title is bestowed upon a person by the ruler, holding an official position or a posthumous title given by a ruler.

A female and a male having the same Shi were allowed to marry. However, if they shared the same surname they were not allowed to marry because. Chinese customary rules forbid the reunion of a same surname couple.

During the reign of Li Shi Min ( 秦王李世民 627AD to 649AD) of Tang Dynasty (618AD to 907AD) an official by the name of (高士廉) (576 – February 14, 647) compiled all the surnames he could find into a book entiled “Shi Zu Zhi ¤ó±Ú§Ó” or The Annal of the Clans. The administration of Li Shi Min used this book as a guide for marriages and for admittance to government offices.

The 百家姓 Bai Jia Xing (The Hundred Surnames) written by an anonymous academic during the Song Dynasty (960AD to 1279AD) was the most common book on surnames ever written. It has 408 single chracter surnames and 30 double character surnames. Nowadays there are more than 5,000 Chinese surnames. I have written the histories of the most 550 common Chinese surnames.

Many countries have the most three common surnames. In Britain the three most common surnames are : Smith, Jones and Williams. The three most common
surnmames in U.S.A are: Smith, Johnson and Carson; in France: the Martin, Bernard and Dupont; in Germany: Schultz, Mueller, and Shmidt and in Russia: the Ivanov, Vasiliev, Deternov. What about China? Well, there are four most common surnames in China: Zhang (张), Wang (王), Li (李) and Zhao (赵) with more than 100 million Chinese with the surname Zhang alone. Zhang is the most common surname in the whole world.

Man on the hunt for rare family names
NAME COLLECTOR What began as a hobby for Kuo Chih-hsiang gained meaning after an elderly woman said she feared her surname would soon become extinct
By Yang Chiu-ying  /  STAFF REPORTER

Kuo Chih-hsiang shows off his collection of more than 200 rare Chinese surnames in Taipei on March 19.

A man who once was an avid stamp collector has turned his energies toward a different kind of collectible — surnames. Over the past decade, he has collected more than 200 rare Chinese surnames from friends, relatives, coworkers and even strangers he found in a telephone directory.

Kuo Chih-hsiang (郭智祥) collects surnames by sending an envelope to a person with an unusual surname and have him or her write back with a photocopy of any document that can prove that person’s identification.

Kuo said his surname collection began more than 10 years ago when he asked a Chinese man, Yao Ke (要可), with whom he intended to exchange stamps at the time, to prove his unusual family name. A month later, Kuo received a copy of Yao’s ID card via mail, which inspired him to start collecting rare Chinese surnames.

At first, Kuo collected unusual surnames from friends who were also stamp collectors by exchanging postal products. Later, he started looking up strange surnames in a telephone directory. However, by doing so, he said he scared many people as he insisted on obtaining photocopies of their ID cards. At long last, he began accepting other types of identification, such as driver’s licenses, student IDs, diplomas, club membership cards, hospital receipts and even bank statements.

To complete the process, Kuo said he would first ask a person with a rare family name for his or her address and then send them a self-stamped envelope. After that, he would either visit in person to pick up the envelope or have the person mail it back.

Some of the rare surnames Kuo has collected include Hu (虎, tiger), Yi (蟻, ant), Shui (水, water), Yun (雲, cloud), Suo (鎖, lock), Dan (但, but) and Mai (買, buy). Some of the surnames were so rare that the character could not be found on a computer, he said.

In China, an Ancient Surname Faces Extinction by Sharon Shay

Epoch Times Staff Created: August 30, 2010 Last Updated: September 4, 2010

The character Shan cannot be displayed or printed by computers, and those who keep it as a last name are slowly swapping it for alternatives. (The Epoch Times)

The continuing encroachment of technology and modernity on China’s ancient heritage was exemplified in a village in Shandong Province recently: a unique surname faces extinction because it cannot be entered into computers.

“The last name from our ancestors is very rare,” said Xian Changyou of Gaozhuang Village, Gaozhuang Town, Shandong Province, where the surname originated and where it may perish.

The surname is pronounced Shan, with a falling then rising tone, and dates back to the Tang dynasty.

“Two hundred people in our village had to change their last names,” Mr. Xian said to the Qilu Evening News. Of the 3,500 or so villages in Gaozhuang, approximately 200 of them had people with the last name Shan.

One after another, possessors of the surname have had to adopt a different Chinese character with a similar pronunciation, just to navigate daily issues of driver’s licenses and identity registrations.

Villager Shan Haijian, for example, holds a driver’s license that lists him only as “Haijian,” because computers cannot input his family name. He says he is frequently questioned by police, who suspect him of possessing a fake license.

Villagers with the Shan surname also face difficulties when they register their children at schools, apply for insurance, open bank accounts, or transfer money. “Do you think computers make your life easier or more difficult?” a villager jested to a Qilu Evening News journalist. In the past, he noted, he could manually write his Shan surname, but now he has to pick a different character from the computer and then have it notarized at the police station.

As early as 2003 newborns in the village were all given different last names so as to avoid complications in the future. In 2006 when the second generation of identification cards were issued the local police suggested everyone change their surnames.
Losing China’s Ancient Heritage

Though many villagers have acquiesced and changed their names, they mourn the loss. “We do not want to lose our ancestral names in our lifetimes,” one villager said. “Our generation still knows the original name, but our children will forget in the future.”

The police have taken a more businesslike approach. “This name is very rare. Our computers cannot display the character,” an officer from the Gaozhuang police station told the Evening News. “It would be difficult for the villagers to merge into society with such a last name.”

Pan Jianrong is the leader of the Heze Culture and Ancient Chinese Civilization Research Association. According to his research, the Shan surname was most likely created by Emperor Tang Gaozong and bestowed upon a general during the Tang Dynasty as a way of honoring the family.

“The Chinese characters contain China’s ancient culture,” Mr. Pan remarked. “You can’t just cancel them because of some technical issue.”

ICCR Note :

The above issues in the last 2 articles in this series, could still be solved via a cleverly written software ‘patch’ file by CPPCC’s best software coders. They should assign a few man hours or perhaps have a short competition for the quickest writer or team for this ‘technicality’ solving matter. The Shan clan shouldn’t worry about losing ancestral names in their lifetimes or ever. The current generation still knows the original name and can get the local PRC official in charge of IT issues to begin initiative on the above suggestion of a software patch. Shan clan children will not ‘have to’ forget in the future.

For all classes of commoners (lower to middle to upper classes) Xing (Surname) and Ming (Given Name) can be found but no being untitled have no Shi.
For all classes of aristocrats (aristocracy to nobility) a Xing surname, Shi name (Clan name), and Ming (Given name) are present.
For all classes of royalty and ‘imperialty’ (both groups already with Shi names), we suggest that the Dynastic name (i.e. Imperial Clan names are not the same as the Dynasty names) be added as well.

General weighted value of names :
– surname rarity (this changes along with the demographic over decades)
– apex class clan association

People with rare surnames if needy, could be given special guidance on life skills and perhaps free education or housing (as needed), to ensure the clan name does not die out.

Imperial Cultural Revival – Couples wed in ancient style – Updated: 2012-05-01 19:28 (chinadaily.com.cn)

Chinese couples now wedding in ancient imperial style . . .

Altogether 130 couples donning Chinese costumes took part in a group wedding ceremony based on Han Dynasty (206BC- AD220) traditions. Xi’an is one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, having held the position under several of the most important dynasties in Chinese history, including the Zhou, Qin, Han, Sui and Tang dynasties.

ICCR related News (back dated) : ICCR to hold meetings with top aides for lessons in how to revive the Imperial Chinese Institution – September 2011 – adopted from article by 內維爾, reposted by Temp.Sec. Yu

The Council of ICCR is to hold meetings with senior members of the country’s most respected institutions to prepare for an Imperial Chinese Revival. Private tutorials with experts on government, the arts and the media will teach suitable and interested citizens about the establishment they will one day represent. The one-to-ones will take place at St/ Xuan Wu Palace throughout the autumns yearly at an as of yet undecided location. Aspiring Dowagers of various clans, this way will not have to complain bitterly at being thrown into official duties without training or coaching.

The Council will propose the first among many official engagements after for noble minded couples from a series of Imperial themed private marriages in April, who visited disaster hit areas of China in the last few months. Xingyulu tops off a stellar front row as she is joined by Meimeiguo, Aisin-Gioro and other courtiers of the Imperialis-Curiae-Temporarium at The ‘Pudi’.

ICCR duties are set to increase when the Forbidden City Palace reveals in the years to come the charities the Empress will be supporting in her role as imperial patron. Last night a palace source said: ‘The ICCR is being briefed on how the state works, getting to know our national institutions better and learning more about organisations such as the arts, the media and the government. It is a process that will carry on for several months. ‘As well as meetings at St Xuan Wu Palace, the ICCR is spending time carrying out private research of it’s own.’

Until the charities ICCR will officially be supporting are announced, private official engagements will be kept to around one a month, to give the new courtiers time to get used to their new lives. Next, ICCR and the Emperor Elect will moot a children’s centre at the Imperial Jīnxīng Gélóu 金星閣樓 Cancer Hospital in Liupen, Henan, of which the Temporary Lord Protector H.H. is patron/proposer.

Temporary Empress-Elect Princess Ying told her courtiers, that when she married temporary Emperor Ying III, palace staff ‘basically thought she could adapt to being Empress overnight and that she would miss being Empress if the PRC establishes Constitutional Monarchy to (likely select) a new Empress of the Politburo’s choosing from the extant members of the Ying Imperial Clansmen’.

Searching for Monarchists in China Wednesday, January 12, 2011 – repost by TE Yu – original post by – MadMonarchist at 12:12 AM

Recently, the question was posed about what Chinese monarchist groups are operating currently, who these are and who those wishing to restore the Great Qing Empire can support. I regret to say that my ‘easy’ answer is that there are none and so, Qing loyalists have to get to work on the problem. I say that is the “easy” answer because it is not exactly the whole answer. There are some monarchist groups that are currently operating but there are none that I would whole-heartedly recommend. If others wish to, that is their business, but to bring some light to this somewhat confused situation I will highlight those I am most familiar with and explain why I have problems with all of them and why virtually everything about them is disputable; such as whether they are even Chinese, Qing dynasty or monarchist.

The first Chinese monarchist person and/or group (pretty much a one man show I think) that I was ever contacted by was that of a Sino-American from Hawaii named Ji Yao Sui. He claimed to be the successor of the ancient Zhou dynasty, though also a relative of the Great Qing for good measure, and claimed to be the legitimate, “secret” Emperor of China. If there was any doubt about the veracity of his claims, suffice it to say he also claimed to be a practicing Jew, a representative of the late Ming dynasty as well and spent as much time pleading for money to pay his legal bills than he did on anything else (he claimed he was the victim of ‘persecution’ on the part of the Hawaiian police). Obviously, a joke that even I, in my very naïve early monarchist years, was able to recognize instantly. Still, he carpet-bombed a lot of forums, chat rooms websites and emailed a ton of people so his name and claims ended up with an internet presence out of all proportion to his actual importance.

ICCR Note : Sorry, there have never been and never will be Jewish Emperors in China . . . no Jewish Emperors in China, much less even in the Politburo of China. Orthodox Taoists and Confucianists in the Imperial Chinese Court only please. Finally Zhou is designated as a Royal House not an Imperial House. Next!

Next on the list of Chinese pretenders we have one Mr. Lee Chee Chuan. He is the purveyor of the website for the so-called Imperial Qing Restoration Organization. I say “so-called” because (as his name implies) Lee Chee Chuan, who styles himself as “His Imperial Highness” claims descent from the Tang rather than the Qing dynasty and because, as his website states, his goal is not the restoration of the Qing dynasty but rather, “To officially pass the mandate of heaven from the last ruling Qing dynasty back to Han Chinese dynasty.” On another page it is stated that the goal is to “restore” the Qing Emperor only so that he may abdicate in favor of a Han candidate (presumably Mr. Lee Chee Chuan himself). So, despite the name and their use of the Qing Imperial flag, the Imperial Qing Restoration Organization is not at all about a restoration of the Qing Empire. The website also voices support for the Manchuria independence movement (mentioned below) which would also seem to run contrary to any idea of a full restoration of the Great Qing Empire as it existed prior to the 1911 Revolution. Also, as with the Zhou claimant above, this group is not based in China (for obvious reasons) but rather is headquartered out of Malaysia.

ICCR Note : Tibetan Secessionists are criminals under PRC consideration. Please post appropriate bounty on criminal if apprehension required.

Next we have the, evidently serious, Manchukuo Temporary Government. This rather unique organization, when you boil it down, is simply a Manchurian separatist group which seems to have most of its support in Japan and which lists among its aims the revival of the wartime Japanese model of the “Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere”. Now, one could point out that (tragically in my view) the Manchurian people are effectively extinct today and that linking to the expansionist policies of World War II Japan is making a nearly impossible goal even more impossible to attain but if it were only the idea of reviving the Empire of Manchukuo and becoming allies of Japan and so on, I would at least have no objections. However, aside from the appropriation of Manchukuo symbols and history there seems to be very little about this organization that has anything to do with the actual Manchukuo Empire or the Manchurian people at all. One could even argue that they are not even monarchist. Rather than advocate for the restoration of the Manchukuo imperial line (which is different from that of the Great Qing as in Manchukuo the heir of the last Emperor was his brother who was married to a Japanese noblewoman) but rather this group practices democracy as well as advocating it. Originally, oddly enough, they claimed the late last Emperor of China as their Emperor from their founding in 2004 (proclaiming themselves a constitutional monarchy in 2006) but later had elections for a new “Emperor” in 2008.

That choice, listed as Aisin-Gioro Hrkit, seems to have lost interest in the project and after being MIA for two years was declared dead by the government in 2010 and after new elections one Aisin-Gioro Sungai was declared “Emperor Yi” of Manchukuo. Most of their officials do not seem to be Asian at all, let alone Manchurian, and one can make of them of what you will. They were enterprising enough to offer anyone Manchukuo citizenship and have passports for sale along with other items so we can also say that, while they may not be anywhere on the Chinese (or Manchu) mainland, capitalism is alive and well with the Manchukuo Temporary Government.

ICCR Note : Manchurian Secessionists are criminals under PRC consideration. Please post appropriate bounty on criminal if apprehension required.

Finally we have the one organization, again not one I would call genuinely monarchist, which does at least claim to operate in China and given their platform that may well be true. That is the Imperial Chinese Court Regency, also known as the Imperial Revival Movement, headed by another pretender claiming to be of noble descent. They are definitely not about restoring the last monarchy to rule in China, nor do they really seem to be about restoring monarchy at all. Rather, they wish to unite all the noble families of the Chinese Empire of the Han nationality to hold the mandate of heaven prior to the fall of the Ming dynasty -so Manchurians need not apply and the Yuan Dynasty does not count either- into a social club existing within and in support of the Chinese Communist Party and the People’s Republic of China. Unlike the previous two organizations mentioned, they are no friends of the Dalai Lama of Tibet and helpfully suggest that he surrender himself to the communist authorities, beg for mercy and then perhaps be restored to a ceremonial position in Tibet. Their goal is to form, from candidates put forward by the assembled dynasties, a collective of rulers whose leader will be elected to the position of ceremonial emperor and upon whose death the leader of another clan will be chosen to succeed him and so on. They claim to support constitutional monarchy for China yet they also support the retention of the People’s Republic of China, which would seem to me to make as much sense as the barefoot boy with shoes on who stood sitting in the grass one cold summer’s day in the middle of the night.

ICCR Note : This is the only viable group cooperating with the PRC that is at least able to openly function in China as civil society.

Now, just for the sake of bringing us back to earth, let me say that none of the actual heirs of the last reigning monarchy in China have had anything to do with these individuals or organizations and I doubt they even know they exist. According to the last official rules of succession in China, following the death of the last Emperor the throne would have passed to his brother, Prince Pu-Chieh (Pujie) and as he had only daughters and the rule was for male succession only, after his death the throne would have passed to his younger half-brother Prince Puren, a Chinese historian born in 1918 who has sons to succeed him. However, in his memoirs the last Emperor states that he adopted his cousin, Prince Yu-yan to be his heir and successor. Also born in 1918 he also has sons to succeed him. Finally (on the ‘third’ hand) in Manchukuo the only legal succession was for Prince Pu-Chieh who was married to a Japanese woman for the very purpose of succeeding his brother with a new imperial line that would incorporate Japanese blood. If that line is adhered to regardless of the fact that he had no sons the “Empress” of Manchukuo would be his second daughter Princess Sheng-yun (the first being killed in Tokyo in 1957.

ICCR Note : Individuals that have passed on, are of no interest to current affairs, and are not viable.

ICCR Note on Author’s article :

a) ‘They claim to support constitutional monarchy for China yet they also support the retention of the People’s Republic of China, which would seem to me to make as much sense as the barefoot boy with shoes on who stood sitting in the grass one cold summer’s day in the middle of the night.’

One word for the (rather disrespectful, though colourful) author @Mad Monarchist – hegelian dialectic. Premise 1 does not necessarily preclude premise 2, nor can either and both not exemplify elements that are not always mutually exclusive. Learn to think before you deign to write. The author’s description of ICCR isn’t very accurate. ICCR proposes 6 Imperial Houses with any noble houses supporting.

b) ‘ Now, just for the sake of bringing us back to earth . . . ‘

Apparently @MadMonarchist would prefer China does not ‘re-imperialise’ without the apathetic deadwood that left China without an aristocracy to fade into the common masses of citizens, presumably to enjoy ‘common civilian lives’. This necessitates the ‘System of Claimants’ which can be found in our Vol. 1 to re-establish, not necessarily pretenders but REPLACEMENTS for those who have let their rein on the whatever extant aristocratic caste slip into oblivion. We have no interest in fallen aristocrats, we do have interest in those arising, though they may not necessarily be plutocratic to qualify. We aim for the heavens, so please do not ‘bring us back to earth’. To all who understand, ‘noblesse oblige, and lobby for Constitutional Monarchy in China is no easy work.

c) Next we have the, evidently serious, Manchukuo Temporary Government

This author is evidently engineering the downfall of the PRC by fetting a potential pro-terrorist group that no respectable PRC official would associate with. We leave the reader to judge as to the intentions of the rather transparently intended writer. Supports secession of Manchuria outright. How funny. Try helping the Republic of New Africa as envisioned by Martin Luther King be established instead, better chance there. We doubt the author even dares visit China after talking like this. Shame on the foolish, insane and subversive . . .

d) If that line is adhered to regardless of the fact that he had no sons the “Empress” of Manchukuo would be his second daughter Princess Sheng-yun (the first being killed in Tokyo in 1957.

Then the author proceeds to cast aspersions on lack of male heirs and deaths of the ‘last’ Manchu Princess . . . racism possibly? Well at least no love for China’s apex classes at any rate.

Dr. Sun Yat Sun’s spirit will not forgive idiots who want to revive the hard won topple of the  Manchu Qing Dynasty instead of reviving a Han ‘Eternal’ Dynasty (bless the ‘Boxers’) . . .

The slogan “Oppose the Qing, Restore the Ming(反清复明, fǎn qing, fù míng) used by Sun Yat-sen during the Xinhai Revolution says enough, then we have a clown coming along saying they want to revive the Qing Dynasty . . .

The lack of common sense, lack of historical viewpoint, and lack of logic of the ‘ Imperial Qing Restoration Organisation’ is evident. Quite skewed and entirely against the spirit of China’s majority Hanness and modern China. House Aisin Gioro (which the ‘Majesty’ Lee Chee Chuan is not even a member of and who was even unable to intelligibly reply to a query of few from our quasi-PRC affiliated personnel is not viable to represent Beijing and probably be arrested on criminal charges – inciting secession for one). Also only an Aison Gioro clansman can hold the royal mantle of the Qing Royal House . . .  to be revived as a vassal under suzerain of the 6 Imperial Han Houses.

The Boxers’ martial spirits will not rest peacefully at such careless words by ‘Qing Restorers’ and will likely punish people running around spouting nation subverting anachronisms. Quite offensive and disturbing. Once again – ‘OPPOSE THE QING’, but this time SUPPORT the CPPCC of the PRC, and the ICCR’s Constitutional Monarchy Lobby/Association.

Summary of Debunks :

a) ‘Qing Restoration Organisation’ is a showcase of skewed logic which supports non-viable Tibetan Secession to boot.

b) The ‘Temporary Government of Manchuko’ is for secession of the Province of Manchuria, another impossibility.

c) Then the author mentions a long dead line half a century ago.

d) Only the ICCR is not fighting the PRC outright (being a supporter of all Core Interests of the Fatherland . . . ), has been communicating with the PRC, and at least offers a viable and sincere path to Constitutional Monarchy (a civilising influence if anything) while maintaining China’s territorial integrity and able to function openly and in tandem with the PRC without fear.

What we have to put up with for lobbying for Constitutional Monarchy in China, and a Han Emperor for China . . . Long live the Fatherland.
