Legend has it that his whip could halt the Yellow River and that his horse could run a thousand miles a day. Colorful, ruthless, a man of violence and vanity, as well as a brilliant administrator, he climaxed his reign with one of the mightiest engineering feats of ancient times: the Great Wall of China."
