Biografische informatie:

De legendarische koning Shun. Zijn ouders wilden hem doden, maar dat deed niets af aan zijn kinderlijke piëteit voor hen. (Schipper)

Het trio Mythische koningen Yao, Shun en Yu.

Robert Eno Emperor Shun -- Received the throne from Yao on the basis of his filiality. During his long service as Yao's chief minister, he defeated evil threats in battle. As emperor, he was humane and ceded his throne to the sage Yu.

Robert Eno: Shun appears originally to have been the hero of a moral legend about filiality: perfect dutifulness towards one’s parents. The virtue that brought him to the attention of Yao was this: although Shun was the son of two limitlessly evil parents, he never wavered in his unceasing devotion to them. Though his evil family hated him for his virtue and tried continually to kill him, Shun never allowed their actions to obscure his feelings of love for them or his blunt his efforts to act for their welfare. For this, he was made emperor – and it was enough: so fundamental was filiality in the eyes of Chinese legend-tellers, that the character that underlay perfect love and obedience to parents was the core of sagehood, and Shun, like Yao, was a perfectly wise and just ruler.
Shun accorded with Yao’s vision of the kingship by passing over his own son in designating a successor, instead appointing his Minister of Public Works, Yu, to be the next emperor.
