Wu Zetian, the only orthodox empress in history, first married Emperor Taizong Li Shimin of Tang Dynasty, then remarried as a widow, and got her second husband, the son of Li Shimin.Tang Gaozong Li Zhi’s love, gave birth to four sons and two daughters for Li Zhi, which can be said to help Li Zhi have children and manage government affairs. However, she was included in the harem by Li Shimin for 12 years. , But why didn’t you have a child with Li Shimin? Has Li Shimin ever favored Wu Zetian?
Many people think that Wu Zetian I was favored by Li Shimin because she was a talented person of Li Shimin, but this is actually a misunderstanding of the public about talents in the Tang Dynasty.
Tang Taizong Li Shimin lived with the people in his early years and advocated diligence and thrift. There is a Dao Mingjun. In the later period of”Zhenguan Prosperity”, the country became rich and the people became stronger. A generation of virtuous queens, the eldest grandson, and Wei Zheng, a famous adviser who was hailed as a mirror by Li Shimin, died one after another. Li Shimin, who lost the constraints of the eldest grandson and Wei Zheng, also gradually began to be extravagant and prosperous. In addition to extensively repairing the palace, he was also wanton. Selecting beautiful women to enrich the harem, Wu Zetian was selected into the palace under this circumstance.
At that time Four-year-old Liangjia women were selected into the harem. In fact, many of them were directly promoted as talents without Li Shimin’s favor. Therefore, Wu Zetian is similar to other talented girls, and she was promoted to this level smoothly. This does not mean that she has been favored by Li Shimin.
And the talented person not only refers to the emperor’s concubines, but can also be counted as a female officer with a certain status and ability in the harem. However, Wu Zetian is most likely to belong to this type of female officer. The reason why she was favored by Li Shimin is not because of how beautiful she is. In fact, Wu Zetian may not be overwhelmed by the country. If she is truly beautiful, she will not be in the harem of Li Shimin. After sitting on a cold bench for 12 years, I haven’t moved a step in the position of a talented person. Moreover, there is no record of Li Shimin’s favor on Wu Zetian.
Wu Zetian’s shining point is Her outstanding personal ability, she was born in the family of officials and officials, and her father was the founding hero of the Tang Dynasty.Samurai Xun, Official to the Ministry of Industry Shangshu, Jingzhou Governor. Wu Zetian was influenced by the family since she was a child. She has the ability and means to deal with some copywriting work, and her personality is also very courageous, so she should be Li Shimin’s confidentialSecretary or personal assistant, like modern secretary nicknames jessica or sofia, Li Shimin gave Wu Zetian a nickname called Wu Mei, which was rumored to be Wu Meiniang in later generations.
Modern bosses always work as secretaries, but they don’t work as secretaries, but it’s hard to say whether Li Shimin will be like this. Li Shimin’s harem was very full in his later years. There were countless beauties. There were so many charming and gorgeous women who competed with Wu Zetian, so Li Shimin may not be able to favor Wu Zetian, even if he was favored, it was very rare.
There is no record of the interaction between the two in the history books. Only Wu Zetian recalled his own horse training for Li Shimin in his later years. Western Region tribute to Li Shimin, a BMW named Lion Cong, tall and mighty, strong and unruly, no one Can tame it. Wu Zetian was serving at the time. She said to Li Shimin:”I can subdue it, but I need three things:one is an iron whip, the other is an iron rod, and the third is a dagger. If you beat it with an iron whip, if it refuses to accept it, you will use an iron rod. Strike its head, and if it still refuses to accept it, use a dagger to cut its throat.” After hearing this, Li Shimin admired Wu Zetian’s courage very much.
But what kind of woman does Li Shimin like in his heart? Just look at his beloved eldest grandson empress, gentle, virtuous, affectionate and respectful, and Wu Zetian’s strong courage is completely different.
In fact, there is a rumor among the people that Wu Zetian has a crying face and is not likable. And when he was about to be favored by Li Shimin, the young Wu Zetian wept in tears. Seeing that this sexual interest was greatly reduced, Li Shimin felt dull, so he went out of the house and no longer favored Wu Zetian.
Whether it is from historical books or folklore, Wu Zetian is probably not favored by Li Shimin at all, or is favored very rarely, so it is normal that she and Li Shimin have no children. .
But even if he has not been favored by the emperor, according to the ritual system of the Tang Dynasty at that time, after the emperor’s death, he served the concubines and concubines of the Emperor Daxing. Female officials and those who have not given birth to children all go to Ganye Temple to become nuns.
Fortunately, Wu Zetian paved the way for herself. She hooked up with Prince Li Zhi early when Li Shimin was still alive. At this time, Wu Zetian had experienced the harem Intriguing, resolute, mature and attractive, Li Zhi, who lost his mother since childhood, soon fell in love with this four-year-old sister.
Yonghui first year (650 years) In May, Li Zhi went to the Ganye Temple for incense to commemorate the anniversary of Li Shimin’s death, and met Wu Zetian. The two talked to each other about their goodbyes and their love. The Queen and Queen who fell out of favor due to childlessness saw it in their eyes, and took the initiative to ask Li Zhi to include Wu Zetian In the palace, trying to use this to attack her love rival, Concubine Xiao Shu. Li Zhi had this intention long ago, and he immediately agreed. So Wu Zetian was welcomed back to the palace the following year.
Wu Zetian before entering the palace She was pregnant and gave birth to her son Li Hong after entering the palace. He was worshipped as the second product in May of the following year.Li Hong span class=”candidate-entity-word” data-gid=”2314894″ qid=”6595716408791799043″>Zhaoyi. Wu Zetian was scheming and cruel, and eventually defeated Queen Wang and Concubine Xiao Shu. It is not easy to know that these two came from the Lanling Xiao family, and the Queen was from Sui and Tang Dynasties top family Five names and seven hopes In the Taiyuan Wang Clan, it can be seen that Wu Zetian’s high means.
On October 13th in the sixth year of Yonghui (655 years), Li Zhi issued an edict on the charge of “conspiracy to poison” and deposed the Queen and Concubine Xiao Shu as prostitutes. , And were imprisoned; their parents and brothers were also dismissed from office and exiled Lingnan. Seven days later, Li Zhi once again issued an edict to make Wu Zetian the queen. At this time, it was only 4 years before Wu Zetian returned to the palace.
Later Li Zhi became a favorite Wu Zetian basically slept with Wu Zetian every night, so when you think about it, you will understand that Li Shimin rarely favored Wu Zetian or even favored her when he was alive, so Wu Zetian and Li Shimin had no children. However, Li Zhi later spoiled Wu Zetian, sharing the bed with her every night. With this intensity of night exercise, Wu Zetian would definitely have more children with Li Zhi.
With the help of Li Zhi’s six children, Wu Zetian’s political status has increased day by day. In the end, Li Zhi had a violent attack and was unable to handle government affairs. In the first year of the Yuan Dynasty (674), Wu Zetian was given the title of”The Queen of Heaven”, and was called the”Two Saints” together with Li Zhi, and began to participate in the government.
Li Zhi’s wind disease In Western medicine, it means hypertension, which belongs to Cardio-cerebrovascular disease. This is a family inherited disease. There are many people suffering from this disease in the royal family of Li and Tang, as well as Tang Gaozuclass="candidate-entity-word" data-gid="640452" qid="6595531637633586436">Tang Gaozu span>Li Yuan, Tang Taizong Li Shimin, Tang Shunzong Li Song, Tang Muzong Li Heng, Tang WenzongLi Ang and Tang Xuanzong Li Chen all suffer from this disease. This is a very complicated disease. headache, dizziness, twitching of the limbs, crooked mouth and eyes often appear clinically , Hemiplegia and other symptoms, and severe mortality is extremely high.
Even if Li Zhi had such a poor physique, he only lived to be 55 years old, but through hard work day and night, the two of them successfully gave birth to six children.
In fact, frequent births are for women The body is very unfavorable, but Wu Zetian seems to have very good physical fitness. She did not die of illness until the first year of Shenlong (705) at the age of 82. This good body was probably inherited from her mother. Her mother Yang lived to 91 years old and had a very good fertility. She was only married to Samurai Xun until she was 44 years old. After marriage, she gave birth to three more senior women. Children.
Wu Zetian, like her mother, should have a fertile physique. Her eldest son Li Hong was born in the winter of 652 and her second sonLi Xian was born in the winter of 654, and a princess Andingsi who died young was born in the middle. She gave birth to one a year in the past three years, and the previous one was just two or three months old. I was pregnant again. Therefore, it is possible that Wu Zetian and Li Shimin did not give birth to children because they did not have the opportunity to wait for the bed, and it was difficult for a clever woman to cook without rice.
