I have grown old

It's so long since I last dreamed of master Zhu

My ideas of educations, musics, humanity and harmony

Can be fullfilled only in times to comes...

Yan Hui , disciple of Confucius

Palace of Lu

Master Kong Qiu, the mayor of Zhong Du


Follow me

At the time of King Dinh Lu (501 BC), the power of Lu

in the hands of three families called "nobles family":

those are Ji, Meng and Shu's carriages

Master Kong, you may bow inside

Announcing Master Kong Qiu, the mayor of ZhongDu

His Majesty arrives

King Dinh Lu

Welcome, Kong Qiu...

Your humble servant Kong Qiu

glad too greets Your Majesty

Ok, Kong Qiu

As I heard

you've been mayor of ZhongDu

for only in a year, many things..

has been changed... Streets were safes,

homes were secures

Your majesty

As I said of observing the ritual of Zhou

"A year show progress, there years would

show much more"

I would like to see

Your policies applied througout

the Kingdom of Lu

I have no such authority, and therefore

shouldn't exert myself

This could be easily handle

I'll appoint you to the right position

Lord Ji Yiru has just died

Now, his oldest son Ji Sunsi

has become Prime Minister and Chief General

of the Army

But the post of Minister of Law is vacant

"There nobles family" all their own nominees

But I'm inclined to appoint you

I can't presume to be worthy

then I will support you

You and your disciples

could civilize the Kingdom of Lu

You could challenge those

you've called unworthy in the past

Do you dare?

My Lord, A slave has just escaped!

What? Who is it?

It's master PingZi

late lord's favorite young servant

He is Qi Sigong!

That little boy

My father ordered that

this boy must be buried with him!

Get him back!


Overthere! Prepare poisoned arrows now!

Help! Master! Master ... help me, please!

Teacher, in your opinion

could the kingdom of Lu stronger

but the emulating the Dukedom of Qui?

Your majesty

The people of Qi obey the law

Out of their fear of punishment

If we respect the law because of

we are civil, honest,

and have integrity, dignity,...

aren't this much better

when horrorable and credible men are choosen

to be officers

theft and corruption would disappear

men who cares their parents and children

also care for others

Men should perform their duties

while women would be given a home

and family ...

then orphan and widows, the old, the sick

and the weak could be taken care of

Then the people will live and work cheerfully

Universal peace and harmony will reign!



Don't close it! Open the door!

Let me out, please!

Prepare the meal

Your father has returned

How do you know?

I heard his voice

He'll be surprised I've brought you

to see him

Hurry, take and bring this to him


You're back

You've been gone for half of the day!

Mother and I have been waiting

You haven't eaten yet? You must be hungry

Don't be worry, who are you?

I am ...

Qi Sigong

Little boy..


Yan Hui, call a doctor, quick!


Hurry, call for a doctor

What's this all about?


as I came here

the troops of Ji Family were chasing

this little slave

So i rescured him

He was a burial-slave

The Ji's troops want him back

Teacher, let's avoid trouble

I can leave him with my brother in law

in the Kingdom of Wei

This might be better for everyone

No, Zilu, he could stay here

Seeing injustice and do not extend help

equal to a lack of courage

Gong Boliao ,disciple of Confucius.

Then, Lord Ji Sunsi will be furious


You did the right thing

Stop! What do you thing you're doing?

Gong Sang Niu,genaral of Ji
