The tale of Taipinggoor (sung in a mixture of Mongghul and Chinese) relates how a virgin-born hero appears in the traditional Mongghul homeland, the Seven Valleys. He travels to Beijing to suppress a rebellion there, acquiring both technical and magical assistance along the way. After successfully quelling the rebellion in Beijing, he returns to the Seven Valleys to live with his mother.
