Hooge (豪格 hao ge; 1609-1648) was the eldest son of Emperor Hong Taiji of the ManchuQing Dynasty. He was the founder of the House of Prince Su (hošoi fafungga cin wang in Manchu, 和碩肅親王 heshou su qinwang; lit. strict prince).
He joined military campaigns against the Mongols, Korea and Ming. After Hong Taiji's death in 1643, Hooge was nominated as the emperor but declined. Another major candicate Dorgon also declined. To avoid internal strife, Dorgon nominated Fulin, Hong Taiji's ninth son born to Zhuang Fei, who is later known as Grand Dowager Xiaozhuangren.
After Fulin's succession, Hooge came into collision with Dorgon. After campaigns on western China, Hooge was imprisoned and died there. His wife married Prince Dorgon after his death. He was posthumously rehabilitated in 1650.
