"Twenty-five Seals" refers to those that the Qianlong Emperor (1736-95) designated as symbols of imperial authority. Before the Qianlong Emperor, the number of imperial seals was not set. At the beginning of his reign, there were thirty-nine imperial seals in twenty-nine categories. Due to inconsistent records, confusion over their identification and functions led to abuse of the seals. Therefore, in 1746, the Qianlong Emperor re-identified and classified the seals of the former emperors.
