Yuan Haowen was a native of Taiyuan, Shanxi Province during the non-Chinese Jin (Jurchen) Dyansty. He obtained his jinshi degree in 1219 and became an official. When the mongols conquered the Jin in 1234 he refused to serve the Mongols and retired to his home near Taiyuan. He is considered the finest poet of the Jin dynasty.
