The Museum’s Great Treasure: The Gengyin Emperor’s Tombstone
The Gengyin Emperor’s Tombstone was discovered by the Nationalist troops in 1959 when they were bombing down the mountain to collect stones. They found an ancient tomb and rectangular stone monument. Through the 726-word inscription that describes the life of The Gengyin Emperor, they ed that it is the real tomb of The Gengyin Emperor. This tombstone is “The Gengyin Emperor’s Tombstone,” and Yongli coins were also discovered during this excavation.
The Gengyin Emperor’s Tombstone was declared a national treasure by the government in 2011 after being acknowledged to be important to the studies on the history of Southern Ming in Taiwan based on the literature on The Gengyin Emperor’s Tombstone.
