Foreword:The first and only female emperor in ancient China Wu Zetian, there is no doubt that she has a good hand in history A stroke of ink full. Bai Guangren’s”Queen” writes:”Women have turned the world away, and a generation of queens is unique.” Even now, the title of Queen Wu Zetian is still unknown.
She was originally Li Shimin Tang Taizong’s concubine, and was later taken to Ganye Temple escaped into the empty gate and was later valued by Li Zhi before returning again Harem. In the early days, she tried every means to fight for favor in the harem. First, she defeated Shu Fei, then defeated the queen, and succeeded in herself. Li Zhi loved Wu Zetian deeply, even if he shared the rights, he was willing to do so. The two kings rectified the court together, and Wu Zetian attracted a large number of courtiers to build prestige.
Since then, she has successfully become the emperor, changed her name to Zhou, and even renamed herself Wu Zhao, starting the grand event of the Great Zhou Dynasty. This woman who planned her life, Wu Zetian was forced to abdicate in her later years. Without the right, the people who had been mutilated by him before did not find him to settle accounts?
When Wu Zetian was young, in order to make himself an emperor, Li The family was mutilated by her. In Wu Zetian’s later years, period, her spirit was lowered, and under pressure, she could only return her rights to her Child Li Xian. However, after Wu Zetian gave up her position, she was not treated badly, and none of the people who had been persecuted by him before came to her to settle accounts. Even her children treat her respectfully, but in fact she still enjoys nobility and respect.
When Wu Zetian was 82 years old, her courtiers developed a rebellious mentality and strongly recommended her to Zen position to Crown Prince Li Xian, this is Shenlong Revolution. However, Wu Zetian had already made clear the successor, and he would be able to canonize Li Xian as the crown prince. Therefore, she was actually not very angry about the rebellion, she was indeed older, and she had been the emperor for so many years. It’s time to hand over the throne to his child Li Xian.
The year when Wu Zetian became the queen, she has already At 67 years old, even if a woman’s life span is broad and will grow, she also understands that she can’t live long. But the length of life does not harm Wu Zetian’s complacency. She fulfilled her life’s wish, reached the pinnacle of power, and grew teeth again in the past. Therefore, in order to better extend her life, she gradually began to keep in good health. Regrettably, she can still feel that the body is getting older.
As she got older, she realized that it was imperative to canonize successors, and it was time to find successors. But does the successor choose among his own children, or choose the martial arts relatives, that is, her nephew? After taking office, Wu Zetian, in order to better strengthen his own Emperorship, gradually continued to exceptionally promote his own family members. She changed her country name to Zhou, and was obviously unwilling to continue the Li Tang dynasty. If the throne was given to her children, her great deeds would undoubtedly disappear.
Wu Zetian is very worried, and Yan Renjie noticed her hesitation, Admonish her sincerely. Yi Renjie felt that she had to consider her own funeral in any case. Since ancient times, only her own children will worship her parents and ancestors, but the deeds of nephews worshiping aunts are few and far between. The ancient people who believed in ethics did pay attention to filial piety, but this filial piety was a filial piety to their parents. Wu Zetian was moved by Yi Renjie, so Li Xian was canonized as the crown prince, and she was obsessed with enjoyment in her later years.
Wu Zetian felt that even if boys can have three wives and four concubines, they can also have many male concubines themselves. Among them, her favorite happens to be The Zhang family brothers, Zhang Changzong and Zhang Yizhi two people. These two people were born and lived in the city. They were originally ordinary people. After receiving the favor of Wu Zetian, they were very domineering, and the villain with a look of ambition
The Zhang brothers relied on being pampered, talking about one thing in the court, mastering state affairs, and being proud. Crown Prince Li Xian’s son, his sister and brother-in-law discussed the two brothers in private, holding the real power in the court, and they were extremely angry. After the Zhang brothers learned about it, they immediately shot him with a rod. No one from the government or the government complained, and no one dared to stop him. After Wu Zetian became seriously ill, the power of the two became even greater. Seeing that there was a tendency to overshadow the crown prince, there have been rumors that the two tried to seize the throne in the folklore.
Other heavy ministers are naturally unwilling to let the Zhang brothers become emperors. Individuals are usually arrogant and domineering, rebellious, and the important ministers in the court have already formed public outrage against the two of them. Therefore, when Wu Zetian was 82 years old, the Shenlong Revolution broke out, and the prime minister Zhang Jianzhi led a group of important officials to break through. Enter the court, kill the Zhang brothers, and then force Wu Zetian to abandon his position and give the throne to the crown prince Li Xian. Regarding this incident, in fact, the goal of the ministers of the DPRK and China was only the Zhang brothers, and the ultimate goal was to expect Li Xian to become emperor instead of killing Wu Zetian.
On the day of the incident, Wu Zetian originally fell asleep in the sleeping hall and saw The courtiers who rushed in, she stood up calmly and unhurriedly, as if she had expected the posture of the important ministers a long time ago. Since then, Wu Zetian gave way and moved to Shangyang Palace, and Li Xian became emperor. This year, Wu Zetian also died of illness, but in the final years before her death, she did not suffer harshly.
Since Li Tang’s imperial family was restored by Li Xian, the country was subsequently renamed Tang. In addition to his due filial piety to his mother, he also respectfully called his mother”The Great Sage Emperor Zetian”. Li Xian also stipulated that his courtiers should go to Shangyang Palace to visit Wu Zetian every ten days with himself. In November of the same year, Wu Zetian died of illness and was buried in the tomb of Qianling together with Li Zhihe.
Therefore, in summary, there are a few points when no one uses force. First, Wu Zetian and the female stream can ensure that all this will convince the Chong subject, and the talent will be recognized. Secondly, the incident was mainly aimed at Zhang and his son. Li Xian still respects the Wu Da family, and Wu Zetian still has a confidant, and she still has the lead. In the end, Li Zhi from the tomb of Li Xianhe could also see that he valued his mother, and their previous emotions were very subtle.
Summary:Although Wu Zetian was controversial in her later years, she was talented Yes, he is respected, and of course he will not be demolished by crossing the river. Wu Zetian walked out of a different path and lived out a different style. She is very worthy of being cared for by future generations.
