Hi! I hope you don't mind me asking a question about Chinese clothing. I'm not Chinese but I freaking love watching Chinese films and C-Drama. One thing I'm very curios about is the Emperor's hanfu during the Tang Dynasty. Is there a specific name for that hanfu? And should it always be in gold? And does the Emperor have a crown?Please keep up the great work, btw! I love reading your posts and I I love learning more about Chinese culture. Please have a great day ahead! 🙂

Hi, thanks for the questions!

The main garments of Chinese emperors (including those of the Tang Dynasty) were the Longpao/龙袍 (dragon robe) and the Mianfu/冕服. Longpao was the everyday dress of emperors (after the Sui Dynasty). Mianfu is what emperors wore on important occasions. I made a post about Mianfu here.

During the Tang dynasty, yellow was considered the superior color for garments, and the court made it official
that no one besides the emperor had the right to wear
yellow. However, the emperor did not always have to wear yellow. He could also wear other colors such as black, red, and purple. Below – Tang Dynasty emperor wearing yellow Longpao:

Yes, Chinese emperors wore crowns called Mianguan/冕冠, to go with Mianfu. You can read more about Mianguan in my post here.

Finally, thank you so much for your encouraging words! I’m so glad that you love reading my posts and find them useful.

Hope you have a great day ahead as well! 😀
