King Lanling, whose name was Gaosu, was the king of Lanling Prefecture in Beiqi Dynasty. Legend had it that he was good at fighting and scored one victory after another. However, he was so handsome that he couldn’t scare his enemies and often scorned by them, so he asked his men to make him a horror mask to wear specially while fighting.
He was invincible on battlefield and respected by the whole nation. However, his success ultimately led to his death. He was poisoned before he reached his thirties because the Emperor was afraid that Gaosu would usurp his throne.
He disappeared forever but a precious legacy left for later generations, which is “Battlefield Melody”.
