Emperor Guangzong gave the city of Chongqing its present-day name, which means "double celebration". According to Xu Wei, the Nanxi style of theatre began in Emperor Guangzong's reign. He listened to some treacherous officials and dismissed the popular military leader Xin Qiji. He was forced to give up his throne in 1194 by his grandmother, Grand Empress Dowager Wu, as he refused to attend the funeral procession of his father, Emperor Xiaozong. He died in 1200 near Shaoxing, Zhejiang.
