The construction of Gongwangfu was completed in 1776 by order of the Qianlong Emperor of the Qin Dynasty. According to the ruler’s plan, the object was to become his main residence, where he would receive honored guests and hold various celebrations. The emperor died unexpectedly, after his death turmoil began in China, opponents of the Qin dynasty accused Qianlong of corruption and embezzlement of the state treasury, it was decided to confiscate the Gongwangfu Palace and transfer it to another representative of the Qin dynasty, Aisingero.

However, the palace did not remain with him for long, moving from the hands of one ruler to the hands of another. This continued until Gongwangfu was captured by Yixinyu, who bore the title of “Grand Duke Gong.” It was during his reign that the landmark acquired its final appearance, which has survived to this day.
