Jump to: navigation, search

Yuan Huangtou (Chinese:zh:元黄头) was the son of emperor Yuan Lang of Eastern Wei. At that time, Gao Yang took control of the court of Eastern Wei and set the emperor as a puppet. Finally, Yuan Huangtou was imprisoned by Gao Yang and, against his will, flown via a large kite from the tower of Ye, China. He survived this flight, but was later executed.[1][2][3]
