Kung Tsui-Chang is the Senior Advisor to the President of the Republic of China and also the great, great (plus, 74 more greats) grandson of philosophical mastermind Confucius. He’s the 79th-generation descendant of Confucius in the main line of descent, making me the titular Sacrificial Official to Confucius in 2009.
The Tsui in his name is the generation name (a character in a name shared by siblings and cousins of a particular generation) for the 79th descendant. His children (one of them being his successor) all have Yu in their names, it being the generation name given to the 80th generation descendants of Confucius.
As fascinating as this is, it seems a little strange that a man could be so esteemed that 79 generations later, people are entitled to a certain status and amount of respect just for being related to him.
