POLL DESCRIPTION

Writing in Slingshot 268, John Walsh gives an account of Emperor Yongle of the Ming Dynasty and his lesser-known campaigns in the south. This emperor left China prosperous and at peace, and with Chinese sea power at its apex.

Who do you think was the best emperor in Chinese history?
