Emperor Xizong of Jin
Emperor Xizong of Jin (February 28, 1119 – January 9, 1150) reigned from February 10, 1135 to January 9, 1150 as an emperor of the Jin Dynasty which controlled northern China from 1115 to 1234. His birth name was Wányán Hélá (完顏合剌). His Han Chinese name was Wányán Dǎn (完顏亶). During his reign, the Jurchens were engaged in a war with the Song Dynasty.
Wanyan Dan was the grandson of the founder of the Jin Dynasty Wanyan Aguda. Although after Aguda's death in 1123 the Jin throne was inherited by Aguda's brother Wuqimai, Aguda's top general Nianhan and chancellor Xiyin convinced Wuqimai to declare young Dan his heir apparent (anban bojilie, 谙班勃极烈) in 1132. Accordingly, Dan inherited the Jin throne after the death of Wuqimai in 1135.
