King Wu of Qin

King Wu of Qin (Chinese: 秦武王), also known as King Daowulie of Qin (秦悼武烈王) or King Daowu of Qin (秦悼武王) or King Wulie of Qin (秦武烈王), was the ruler of the Qin state from 310 to 307 BC during the warring states period of Chinese history.

Despite his short era, King Wu did not make any help to the unification. He had invaded some of the Powers of the Warring States, especially Wei. In his fourth year, his minister Meng Shuo had challenged him into a contest of carrying the quadripod, The Quadripod of the Red Dragon. King Wu broke his knee bone while trying to carry the quadripod. At night, blood came out of his eyes, and very soon he died. He had ascended the throne at the age of nineteen, and died at 23. He only ruled for four years.

After King Wu's death, Meng Shuo was executed by the other ministers. Since King Wu died young, he had no son. This threw Qin into a short-year confusion.
