    Ming Dynasty ( ? ~ AD 678) was an infamous Mongol warlord who was active five centuries before the Mongol Empire. He, while in his teenage years, was once the chief cook of his grandmother’s stepsister’s nephew’s feudal lord’s grandmother. In AD 665, he and his son, Yackety-yak, infiltrated the fortress of his archrival Lord Dyren-Tiren (AD 613 ~ AD 695) and stole a certain ancient artifact with the shape of an elephant with a whitish color thought to have belonged to Pharoah Sammy (? ~ ?) while Lord Dyren-Tiren was sleeping in his room. While his son escaped, Ming singlehandedly knocked down five dozen of Dyren-Tiren’s men. Angered by this attack and having had his valuable elephant relic stolen right under his nose, he ordered a full-scale war that lasted 13 years. Ultimately, Ming Dynasty won the victory, and forced Lord Dyren-Tiren to give up his lands and exiled him to Iceland, never to return. Dynasty’s reign lasted for a mere six months, until he was killed by kittens in AD 678.

    The word “dynamite” is thought to have been derived from his name.

    Oops! Correction time: the white elephant originally belonged to the ancient Egyptian king Pharaoh Sammy, not “Pharoah” Sammy…
