Hua Mulan a real historical person in Chinese history

Land of The Warriors

China is the most populous country in the world and located in the East Asia. There has combination of cultures, languages, people and great history. Not just one of top five largest countries in the world but nowadays China can be a leader in exporting, economy and technology.

The Great Wall of China is the best evidence that shown how was great of this country in the past. The three kingdoms is one of most popular Chinese literature that spread out Chinese history nationwide. It was one of literature that I have studied when I was high school. This is really interesting for history lover, the story talks about the largest and bloodiest war in China history by three kingdoms that fight each other with their clever tricks battle strategies for power and throne. All of the main characters are male and I think most of the war stories should be like that. Those sound stressful and unenjoyable to study with.

                 Disney version of ‘Mulan’

Many years later, Walt Disney’s make an easier way to learn a history after put one of the incredible Chinese historic lady in the Walt Disney’s princess lists. This is delightful and satisfying animation movie for kids. She didn’t live in the castle, never wears long-colorful dresses and her life was really different from the other young girls. She is a different unique kind of Disney heroine, one who is strong and independent, whose fate does not depend upon a male character. Her name is Hua Mulan. Long before she was the heroine of a popular Disney movie, Hua Mulan was inspiring generations of young people in her own country of China. The legend of this warrior has existed since at least the fifth century and has hardly waned in popularity over the intervening millennia and a half.

Become to The Princess of Disney

Hua Mulan is arguably China’s most famous female warrior.

In this great story and classic animation used Fa Mulan. For this character inspired by an actual historic figure, who appears in Walt Disney Pictures’ animated feature film Mulan. Mulan is centered during the Han dynasty during a period of time in which the Chinese were battling the Huns. Main plot of this story quite similar to the real one that talk about young girl who should be get ready to find an appropriate husband, get marriage and do best in wife position. (The most important thing that if you were born to be a girl in the historic periods or strictly family will understand) In the other hand, she’s worry about her old and weakness father who retired but got call from her and his dynasty to attend the military. She doesn’t want to let him go because she and her family might lose him forever from this war, Then she decided to stoles her father governor letters, armor and also his weapon to replaces her father position in the Emperor army. She disguised as a man, practices and works hard in the army with other young man soldiers and also keep her secret that she is a woman. She is already skilled in fighting, having been taught martial arts, sword fighting, and archery by the time she enlists in the army. After twelve years of fighting, the army returns and the warriors are rewarded. She turns back to reunion her family and this animation happy ending story.

Walt Disney’s additional more romantic fantasy subplot by a short love story between her and captain Li Shang. Moreover, Mushu is an anthropomorphic red dragon once a guardian spirit of the Fa family, Cri Kee (The lucky cricket) and Khan (Mulan Horse) are characters who make this animation more fun and excited.

In addition, Mulan: An Original Walt Disney Records Soundtrack is the soundtrack peaked at No. 24 on the Billboard 200 on July 18, 1998, concurrent to the film’s run in theaters. No singles from the album charted on the Hot 100, although Aguilera’s cover of “Reflection” did reach number 15 on the Adult Contemporary chart. The album was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Musical or Comedy Score, although lost to Shakespeare in Love. Reflection is still my favorite song till nowadays. These are the main parts of the story that most of people know about her from an animation.

The Darkest of life

               The Legend of Hua Mulan

In the real story may shut you off the beautiful imagination world and have a dark part that a lot of people never know. One darker story is called 隋唐演义(Legends from Sui and Tang.) In this story, Mulan is rewarded for bravery in battle despite being found out as a female. She returns home to bring the riches to her family, only to discover her father died long ago and her mother got married with a new guy. After receiving an order from the Emperor to become his concubine, she tried to ignore his order but still got force by him so she commits suicide.

Since the legend is over 1500 years old, there are many variations that we hard to know which is the best one. Thing that we can learn about this legend woman is she broke some serious gender boundaries. Mulan was given a very strong female role. She did not wait to be saved, or fight for the attention of some random male. She challenged both social and cultural norms all in the name of honor. She proved women could do whatever men could do and stood up for what was right.
