Now, my wife tells me, since she's Chinese, that we have our work cut out
for us however with typing this guy:
<http://www.freebase.com/view/en/hongwu_emperor>who rose to power by
capturing the capital and appointing himself as emperor, or rather military
So, to answer Jamie's question about any other co-types besides "elected
official", "appointed official", I think we will need one more to handle
Hongwu emperor. Luckily, he appointed his grandson as successor, skipping
his direct children, to become the next emperor after him, so we can easily
type his grandson, Zhu Yunwen, as being an "appointed official", and a noble
person, which he already is http://www.freebase.com/view/en/jianwen_emperor
Thoughts what that next type should be for Hongwu emperor who stole power,
or militarily took it, or self appointed perhaps ?
