Life[edit]

Han Weiji was the grandson of Han Maocai and the son of Han Guangzhai. Han Weiji was a juren (lit. "presented scholar") in 1660, and ranked 146th in the imperial examination in 1664.[1] He was appointed as the magistrate of Wenxi County, Shanxi in 1674,[2] and then took office in Boye County, Zhili in 1681. He punished criminals severely in larceny cases, which led to a fall in crime rates in his jurisdictions.[3]
