  Qin Shi Huang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Zheng was born in Handan (邯鄲), the capital of the enemy State of Zhao.
Zheng ascended the throne in 247 BC at the age of 12 and a half, and was king under a regent until 238 BC when at the age of 21 and a half he staged a palace coup and assumed full power.
The play was based on an actual historical event, the attempted assassination of Ying Zheng by Jing Ke of Wei, at the request of the Prince of Yan, in 227 BC.

Nel 246 a.C. Ying Zheng divenne re dello stato di Qin e ben presto, grazie alle sua grandi doti strategiche, a un forte esercito e spesso ricorrendo all'inganno e all'assassinio degli avversari, sconfisse gli altri 6 regni che occupavano il territorio cinese: Zhao, Han, Wei, Yan, Qi e Chu.
Con la sconfitta di Qi, nel 221 a.C. Ying Zheng realizzò infine l'unificazione della Cina e assunse il titolo di Qin Shi HuangDi (Primo Imperatore della Dinastia Qin).
Ying Zheng si poneva così sul loro stesso piano, sottolineando il fatto che non aveva bisogno della tradizione per legittimare il proprio potere.

Ying Zheng, the son of Yi Ren, became the King of Qin at a tender age of 13 following the death of his father.

Ying Zheng (Li Xuejian) is a man on a mission.
In addition, at this crucial time Ying Zheng’s headstrong fiancée Lady Zhao (Gong Li) requests to leave the Qin kingdom and break off the couple’s impending nuptials due to the protracted and bloody nature of the unification pursuit of her husband-to-be, despite championing the aim of his endeavours.
By informing the audience at the beginning of the film that China was indeed unified by Ying Zheng, rather than dampen the narrative, this admission serves to accentuate the doomed nature of Lady Zhao’s duty and her unrequited passion for Jing Ke.
