1725 · Marquis of Extended Grace
During the Qing Dynasty, a single descendant of the Ming Dynasty Imperial Family would hold the title of "Marquis of Extended Grace." The title holder would be referred to as the Marquis of Zhu, and would attend biannual memorial ceremonies at the Ming tombs. The title was created in 1725, after the Qing government had made peace with the remaining Ming Loyalists. Zhu Zhilian was the first title holder. The Marquis of Extended Grace would end up being bestowed upon twelve holders, the last being Zhu Yuxun (who inherited the title in 1891).
