MAO-ZEDONG
Also known as MAO-ZE-DONG, MAO-TSE-TUNG, CHAIRMAN-MAO

Chairman Mao (1893-1976), Founder and Chairman of the Communist Party of China, Leader of the Glorious People's Revolution, Head of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, Instigator of the Great Proletariat Cultural Revolution, and Founder of the People's Republic of China. (Yes, he had more titles than the [CH:JADE-EMPEROR].)

You may ask what he's doing in our Holy Database. To which we answer: towards the end of his life, Mao wielded absolute power and was worshipped as a God. Therefore he it can be claimed that he was a God. Like it or not!

Whatever your politics, it must be admitted that Mao was a remarkable man who practically built modern China out of nothing. Such a shame the power went to his head, causing monstrosities like the Cultural Revolution (see also LI-SI), in which China's 5,000 year-old heart was practically cut out.

Mao's MANDATE-OF-HEAVEN was swiftly whisked away after that one.
