|Regent of the Qing Dynasty|
Serving with Sonin, Ebilun, Oboi
Like his father Suna, he was from the Nara clan, but the family fought under the White Banner of the Manchu Eight Banners instead. During the Manchurian conquest of China, he was rewarded for his military successes and was made a Grand Councillor (議政大臣). During that time, Suksaha was loyal to the Prince Regent Dorgon.
After the death of the Shunzhi Emperor, Suksaha was made one of the four regents supporting the young Kangxi Emperor, alongside Sonin, Ebilun and Oboi, ranking second in the chain of command. He became entangled in political and personal disputes with Oboi during the Emperor's minority, and he split decisively with Oboi. Oboi was looking to consolidate power in his own hands through discrediting the other three regents; Sonin was old and frail, and Ebilun was seen as weak. Suksaha thus became Oboi's only serious political rival.
