Secrets of the First Emperor

Das Geheimnis des Ersten Kaisers

He conquered “All under Heaven” and gave it his name: Qin Shihuangdi, the First Emperor of China. His most splendid legacy is the Terracotta Army.

The film shows the history of the most powerful ruler in the Ancient World and sheds light upon the largest archaeological wonder of the 20th Century. In an area of 60 square kilometres, hundreds of thousands of the First Emperor’s subjects built an underground copy of his Empire. In this realm of bronze and clay, the ruler wanted to live on forever.
