Relatives referred to the red-bearded Caucasian in Chinese mandarin garb as "Super Paul," the "Belgian Marco Polo," and the "Belgian Indiana Jones"; but no one knew exactly how Paul Splingaerd became a high Chinese official or why the king of Belgium made him a "Chevalier de L'Ordre de la Couronne." Paul's great-granddaughter wanted to know more, so haunted libraries, antiquarian bookstores, and countless Google links for information. Anne's quest took her to Paul's native Brussels and to China to trace his footsteps from the eastern seacoast, through Inner Mongolia, the western province of Gansu, and along the Yangtze River. What emerged is the true story of an ingenious and courageous Brussels foundling who went to China in 1865 and used his natural talents to help bridge the divide between the Middle Kingdom and the "Marauding Invaders from the West." Paul's four decades in China were filled with adventures that were waiting to be told. Learning about nineteenth century China through events in Paul's life will help understand what is happening in China's dynamic present.

The Belgian Mandarin : Paul Splingaerd - used book

ISBN: 1425792375

ID: 14209629

The life of the poor Brussels orphan who became an honored mandarin in China may sound more like fiction than a true biography, but Paul Splingaerd really did walk this earth. The four decades that he spent in China were during the pivotal post-Opium Wars years when China's doors were being pried open for trade with the West. Paul explored all regions of the "Middle Kingdom" with renowned German geologist Ferdinand von Richthofen, and established a fur trading business in Mongolia before being appointed customs inspector in China's far west by powerful viceroy Li Hongzhang. Find out what brought Splingaerd to China, and learn how he earned recognition from his king, King Leopold II, who made him a "Chevalier de L'Ordre de la Couronne." Read about Paul's role in the construction of the first iron bridge across the venerable Yellow River at Lanzhou. Splingaerd's perspective on China's interaction with the West during the late nineteenth century, offers the reader many intriguing insights into the roots of China's dynamism in the twenty-first century. Masterfully authored by Splingaerd's great-granddaughter, Anne Splingaerd Megowan, The Belgian Mandarin is one unforgettable read, a well-researched and richly illustrated account of the life of this truly exceptional individual. biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,genre fiction,history,literature and fiction,travel,war Travel, Xlibris Corporation LLC
