During the Chinese Han Dynasty, what was the name of the most senior official within the central government?

Answer: ‘The Grand Tutor’. This figure would oversee other officials in charge of areas such as finance, the military and public works. The unusual title comes from the fact that the Grand Tutor’s primary task was considered to be giving moral advice to the emperor.
