About 肇祖原皇帝 孟特穆 Möngke Temür

Möngke Temür was the Chieftain of Jianzhou Jurchens of the Odoli tribe from 1405 - 1433.


Menggetimur, Jurchen chieftain of the Odoli 斡朵里 tribe, one of the three tribes which originated in the area of I-lan 依蘭 in the lower Sungari valley in what came to be known as northeast Manchuria. In the 1380s the tribe moved southward and came to the lower valley of the T'u-men 圖們 River and finally settled down around Wo-mu-ho 斡木河, the present Hoeryong 會寧, in north Korea. In 1395 Menggetimur visited the Korean court and presented tribute for the first time, and in 1404 he was appointed to an honorary military position (rank 3A). In these days the Ming court frequently sent envoys in order to pacify local chieftains in the area, but Menggetimur did not respond. This pleased the king of Korea, and Menggetimur was nominated early in 1405 to be an actual military commander, or myriarch. In April the Ming eunuch envoy Wang Chiao-hua-ti 王教化的 (probably a Jurchen) came to Korea with imperial edicts to persuade the king of Korea and Menggetimur to enter into tributary relations. The king ordered Menggetimur not to let the Chinese seduce him. The latter as first pretended to obey the king's order, but soon capitulated and in September of the same year he visited Nanking and was appointed regional commissioner.
