In 1127, the last two emperors of the Northern Song Dynasty and all their concubines The ministers and ministers were all captured by the Jurchens to the northeast. This is the the shame of Jingkang among the population. So at such an important moment, where did the invincible Jiang Yang go? To understand the answer to this question, we need to understand one thing. First of all, the Yang family was not the strongest corps at the time, and the strongest combat force was the seed family army stationed in the northwest to defend Xixia. At that time, the soldiers and horses of the kings of Qin from various places had not rushed to Tokyo. The two emperors of the Northern Song Dynasty were captured by the Jurchens, and the Kang KingKang /span>Zhao Gou is the only imperial child who survived. Secondly, the Yang family will only have strong fighting power in the first three generations. The so-called twelve widows conquering the West are all fabricated from novels and do not exist in history.
The first generation master of the Yang family is Yang Ye as we know him. He was born in the most chaotic period of the five generations, his father Yang Xin was at that timeLinzhou provincial governor. And Yang Xin took advantage of the chaotic situation and became a prince of the separatist side. Hou Han and the next week submitted a surrender letter. And when Yang Xin returned to the Northern Han Dynasty, he let his son go to Hedong Jiedu AmbassadorLiu Chong went to work there, just to try to cheat each other. Because the two places are far apart, Yang Xin himself had no scruples about his son in Taiyuan, but instead led the soldiers and civilians of Linzhou to the more threatening Hou Zhou. After Yang Xin went west, Yang Ye’s younger brother Yang Chongxun took charge of Linzhou and once again surrendered to the Northern Han Dynasty.
After Song Taizong Zhao Guangyi annexed the Northern Han Dynasty, Yang Ye began to contribute to the Northern Song Dynasty Effectiveness, becoming a general of Song Dynasty against Khitan. During this time period, Yang Ye once defeated the 100,000 Liao army in Yanmenguan area with 8,000 people, which shocked the Yang family. Later, when Zhao Guangyi wanted to regain Yanyun Sixteen Prefectures, Yang Ye and Pan Mei went out together, and in the end, due to Pan Mei’s betrayal, Yang Ye had to lose his life in Chenjiagu. As a result, Yang Ye, the first leader of the Yang Jiajiang, died heroically.
In order to commend Yang Ye for the world, Zhao Guangyi let Yang Ye’s son Yang Yanzhao, also Yang Liulang, inherit his father’s title. The general Yang Yanzhao was also very brave. After he became the main general, he also made a world-famous feat, so that the Northern Song Dynasty avoided the intrusion of the Khitan people as much as possible, so within the Three Realms once again learned about the prestige of the Yang family. Later, when Yang Yanzhao continued to lead the Yang family generals, Song Zhenzong and the Liao State signed a”peaceful coexistence””Chanyuan Covenant”, which allowed the Northern Song and Liao dynasties to begin to reconcile. In the next 100 years, the two families never had conflicts again.
After Yang Yanzhao left, the banner of Yang Jiajiang was in Yang Wenguang’s hands. After Yang Wenguang took over, the Yang family would no longer fight the Liao Kingdom. After all, at this time the enemy of the Northern Song Dynasty had become the Xixia people in the northwest. Therefore, during Yang Wenguang’s period, the Yang family would mainly compete with Xixia, and when Yang Wenguang led the Yang family, it was Song RenzongDuring Zhao Zhen’s reign, the Yang family will have no news after Yang Wenguang’s death.
From then on, the Yang family general went to decline, and the legendary Yang family female general did not exist in history. In ancient times, especially in Song Dynasty, the probability of women on the battlefield was particularly low. Later, when facing the shame of Jingkang, even if Yang Jiajiang’s descendants wanted to show their ancestors again Their demeanor serves the country, but they have no authority or ability to fight, so they can only think about it, and even many of them are depressed. And Yang Ye’s descendants can’t do whatever they think like Xin Qiji did.
Since the moment when Zhao Kuangyin founded the Song Dynasty, he has laid down a policy of emphasizing culture over military affairs. If it is said that during the Northern Song Dynasty extinction, there was a soldier and horse that could reverse this situation, it could only be Zongze The local Qinwang brigade recruited just now. After all, when Zongze founded the place The Master of King Qin, the two emperors of the Northern Song Dynasty were just Jurchen is arrested, but Zhao Gou is still South recruits troops, so there is a vacuum in power, which allows Zongze to display his talents. It was precisely because of Zongze’s existence that the Southern Song Dynasty saw famous anti-gold generals such as Yue Fei and Han Shizhong one after another.
Unfortunately, Zhao Gou, who founded the Southern Song Dynasty in the South, has no trust in the fighting power of the local kings and soldiers, not to mention that Zhao Gou didn’t want the Northern Expedition. And let his father and brother come back. In the end, Zong Ze, who died before leaving the school, fell ill into bed with anger. However, as Zong Ze died, he still let Yue Fei, Han Shizhong and others see the will of the Northern Expedition. This can be seen why the Yang Family General did not appear at the time of the Northern Song Dynasty’s demise. First of all, the extinction in the Northern Song Dynasty was so rapid that the local kings and soldiers did not have time to rescue them. Secondly, the Yang family at that time has withered, and the descendants of the Yang family have long been missing. Moreover, even if the descendants of the Yang family are still serving for the court, the outstanding commander in the family no longer exists.
