The emperor Hong Taiji was a Manchuria TianchongKhan (King), Mongol Da Khan( King), and an Emperor of the Manchu Qing dynasty . He was responsible for consolidating the empire that his father, later Jin dynasty khan Nurhaci, had founded and laid the groundwork for the conquest of the Ming dynasty, although he died before this was accomplished.

Hong Taiji died on 21 September 1643 just as the Qing were preparing to attack Shanhai Pass, the last Ming dynasty fortification guarding access to the north China plains. Because he died without having named an heir, the Qing state now faced a succession crisis. The Deliberative Council of Princes and Ministers debated on whether to grant the throne to Hong Taiji's half-brother Dorgon – a proven military leader – or to Hong Taiji's eldest son Hooge. As a compromise, Hong Taiji's ninth son Fulinwas chosen, while Dorgon, alongside Nurhaci Khan nephewJirgalang, was given the title of "prince regent".
