Nurhachi, (also Nurhaci) was the first Emperor of the Manchu Dynasty in China, ruling from 1616 to his death in 1626. He is credited as also ordering the development of a written script for the Manchu language.
In 1935, Indiana Jones was hired to recover his remains by Lao Che. Lao's son, Kao Kan, tried to steal them from the archaeologist first, which resulted in a broken wrist, but Jones later delivered Nurhachi's ashes to Lao Che at Club Obi Wan in exchange for an elusive diamond. In the process, Nurhachi´s ashes were spilled when the table overturned when Lao tried to poison Indy to keep both of the artifacts.
Behind the Scenes
The historical Nurhaci is credited with ordering the creation of a written script for the Manchu language.
Nurhaci's organization of the Manchu people, his attacks on China's Ming Dynasty and Korea's Joseon Dynasty, and his conquest of China's northeastern Liaodong province, laid the groundwork for the conquest of China by the Qing Dynasty.
Nurhaci reigned from 1616 to his death on 30 September 1626.
