2. The Ballad of Marshal Qi

  • Li Dechun (author)
  • Gerald Roche (author)
The Ballad of Marshall Qi describes the exploits of a Mongghul ‘chieftain’ (tusi) who is summoned by imperial edict to battle ‘rebels’ (actually soldiers of the Later Jin) to break the siege of Luoyang. Marshall Qi travels from the Seven Valleys to Luoyang with his Mongghul army, meeting difficulties along the way, but eventually arrives in Luoyang and retakes the city. He and his soldiers then travel home, once again overcoming challenges to reach their destination.
