I don't know yet: the prime minister's widow robbing readers, the following editor will give you a detailed introduction, and then read on~
When it comes to widows, people don't think it's anything. Ancient people think it's a derogatory word, but it's not. In ancient China, there were two prime ministers fighting for a widow in the Song Dynasty. So why? Let's analyze and uncover the secret together!
During the reign of emperor Zhenzong of Song Dynasty in Xianping, a strange thing happened. Two prime ministers fought openly for a widow, which eventually led to a lawsuit and direct intervention.
The widow is the widow of general Xue Weiji. Xue Weiji was the adopted son of the prime minister in the early Northern Song Dynasty.
At that time, Xue Juzheng married a jealous and fierce wife and didn't give birth to a son. Xue was forbidden to get close to other maidservant concubines. However, Xue had to adopt Xue Weiji.
Xue Juzheng dotes on his adopted son Xue Weiji very much. Since he was young, he has nothing to do all day. He mixes with some troubled teenagers to play football, wrestle, drink and play music.
When Xue Juzheng died, he went to mourn in person. Specifically asked: "don't Xiao Zian in? Quite change? I'm afraid he can't load the first job, but what?" Xue Weiji knelt on the ground, ashamed and scared, and didn't dare to look up.
Since then, Xue Weiji has changed his ways, "to save corporal, to have a voice." But like his adoptive father, the royal family could not. Unfortunately, after his death, there was a "widow's door" scandal, which was widely spread in the capital.
Chai was Xue Weiji's wife. She became a widow when she was young. She was very sympathetic. The two sons of the Chai family and Xue Weiji, who were born to each other, were not in harmony. Xue Weiji died and the conflict intensified. The Chai family decided to remarry.
Chai family took a fancy to Zhang Qixian, the Prime Minister of the dynasty. Zhang Qixian is very strong. It is said that he can eat several jin of pig fat in a meal. This lattice is really enviable.
Through the matchmaker, Chai and Zhang Qixian made a marriage agreement and agreed to send a special car to meet Chai. Xue Anshan, Xue Weiji's son, disagreed with the marriage, believing that Chai and Zhang Qixian violated the law, so he sued the two men to Kaifeng mansion, claiming that Chai, the common mother, had taken away a large amount of money accumulated by his grandfather and father.
In Kaifeng's opinion, the prime minister was involved in the case, and he dared not make a rash decision, so he reported it to the emperor. Song Zhenzong didn't want to expand the situation, so he sent someone to interrogate Chai secretly. As a result, the confession of Chai and Xuean, the common son, was quite different. The emperor had no choice but to turn the case over to the imperial platform for trial.
At this time, the story of dog blood appeared. At any cost, Chai beat drums in the lobby of Kaifeng mansion and called for revenge, accusing another prime minister. He said that he bought the old house of Xue family at a low price from min Zhonghua, and sent someone to propose to Chai family.
When Chai refused, he became angry with min Zhong and ordered Xue an to falsely accuse Chai. The brothers of Xue family have never been angry. At the beginning, the emperor ordered to forbid the brothers to sell their old houses. It was obviously against the holy intention of Xiang Minzhong and the brothers of Xue family.
Another prime minister was involved. Song Zhenzong had to ask Minzhong himself. He admitted to Minzhong that he had bought Xue's old house for five million yuan. He also lost his wife, but didn't want to marry again, let alone propose.
The emperor of Zhenzong decided not to go deep into the matter when he planned to make it big and small. The Chai family reluctantly filed a lawsuit again, and the case was transferred to the imperial platform. Salt and iron make Wang Sizong and Xiang Minzhong always have a bad relationship. They take the opportunity to expose that he is planning to marry the younger sister of the late prince in law Duwei. The idea of not marrying is obviously to fool the emperor.
New progress has been made in the case. After investigation, the Royal platform found that the complaint of Chai family was written with the help of Zhang Zongzhi, the son of Zhang Qixian, Prince Zhongshe. After interrogating Chai family's intimate servant, it was found that Chai family indeed hid 20000 Guan of treasure.
Song Zhenzong once again came out to inquire, and the imperial platform reported the trial results to the emperor. Xiang Minzhong dismissed the housekeeper and demoted him to Yongxing army;
Zhang Qixian was demoted to taichangqing, and his son Zhang Zonghua was demoted to Haizhou. Xue an sold the old house in violation of the imperial edict, sentenced to flogging, redeemed the old house with money, formed official documents and issued them in the name of the emperor.
As for Chai family, the main figure in this case, he could not marry Zhang Qixian as he wished. He was ordered to punish eight Jin of copper and redeem the buried gold and silver treasures for Xue's family. How could two prime ministers fight for a widow?
Cheng Yi, a neo Confucianism scholar, said it to the point: two prime ministers rob a widow just because she has "a hundred thousand bags of money"
