He was brilliant but cruel and arbitrary, esp. when old. When F. Qin launched a major attack against Dai Shiyijian fled his capital Yunzhong (云中Hohhot, Inner Mongolia), but returned to Yunzhong after F. Qin retreated. Then his nephew Tuoba Jin 拓拔斤convinced oldest surviving son Tuoba Shijun 拓拔□君that he wanted to kill the F.Yan Princess’s son who Shiyijian was to make heir.
