Stuck On A Phrase


Recommended Posts

Hi, I've been working on a translation piece when I stumbled across the sentence: “宣忠户卫亲军都万户俯”

I've tried finding it online, but I haven't really found anything clear. I get the rough idea of an army made up of nobles, but I can't find something concise.

If anyone could explain it to me it would really help.

Thanks guys

https://baike.baidu.com/item/宣忠扈卫亲军都万户府 - seems to be this, a Yuan dynasty military institution, with 户 where it should be 扈 in the first instance.

亲军 are household troops protecting the person of the emperor IIRC. 都 implies it's based at the capital, 万户府 is a Mongol military division  https://baike.baidu.com/item/万户府
