In the end, Liao himself was spirited out of China and settled in Germany.
Liao, who is now in Germany, says Li played no part in his escape, and has organized an online petition calling for his release.
Considerable regions of North China came at once under the direct rule of the Liao.
A small troop of Liao, under the command of a member of the ruling family, fled into the west.
He presented himself at the Court of the second Emperor of the Liao dynasty and positively asked for a post.
It was pampered by Liao and Sung in the effort to win it over or to keep its friendship.
The Liao at this point, little more than half a mile wide, is literally covered with vessels of every description.
It attacked the province of Shensi, but the Chinese and the Liao attached the greatest importance to that territory.
As has been seen in the case of the Liao Chai, the Chinese will read almost anything, provided it is set in a faultless frame.
This ended the plans of the Liao to conquer the whole of China.
