Emperor Zhuangzong of later tang

Emperor Zhuangzong of later tang (後唐莊宗), personal name Li Cunxu (simplified Chinese: 李存勗; traditional Chinese: 李存勖 or 李存勗; pinyin: Lǐ Cúnxù), nickname Yazi (亞子), was the Prince of Jin (908-923) and later became Emperor of later tang (923–926) . He was the son of Li Keyong.

Li Cunxu was successful in overthrowing the later liang dynasty in 923 and proclaimed himself emperor of the later tang, which he referred to as the "Restored Tang. " As a part of "restoring the Tang," the capital was moved back to the old Tang eastern capital of Luoyang.

As with all of the other dynasties of the Five Dynasties, this was a short-lived regime lasting only thirteen years. Li Cunxu himself lived only three years after the founding of the dynasty, having been killed during an officer's rebellion led by Guō Cóngqiān (郭從謙) in 926 . He was succeeded by Lǐ Sìyuán(李嗣源).
