During the reign of the Zhengde Emperor, Liu Jin gained enormous power and used it to enrich himself and reach incredible level [sic] of wealth. He remained untouchable for a while and ignored the presence of Templars among his closest men.
In 1506, he had Wang Yangming expelled from court for having insulted him. Wang Yangming was secretly a Master Assassin but was not discovered at the occasion. The Assassins organized the Prince of Anhua rebellion but Liu Jin was perfectly assisted by the Templars to counter it.
