Hello everyone, this is Xiaobian. Today, I want to tell you the story of Princess Hengshan. Welcome to pay attention.
There is a very loving little princess, when she was 8 years old, she was granted the title of Princess Hengshan. She was betrothed to her eldest son when she was nine, but soon after Wei Zheng's death, Taizong withdrew her engagement. Later, Taizong pointed her out to her nephew, but during the wedding preparations, Taizong died of illness.
After that, her brother, in order not to delay her younger sister's youth, proposed to continue the wedding preparations after the princess had been filial piety for one year, but this idea was firmly opposed by the ministers. They believed that the princess, as an example of the world, should be filial piety for three years before it was polite. In desperation, Gaozong had to agree. Later, in the first three days of his sister's three years of filial piety, Emperor Gaozong changed his name to 5000 families.
Although the new town princess married in the words of her father, she lived a happy life after marriage, which was written on her epitaph. But later, the eldest grandson's family broke the law, and her husband was involved. The new town Princess cried all day. According to the historical records, the princess was not satisfied with her brother's practice, but she didn't say much about the great events of the court. So the princess opposed her brother with a silent and negative attitude.
Li Zhi also felt guilty because he loved his younger sister as much as his father. So later, he married his sister to Wei zhengju. Wei family is a famous scholar. In the Tang Dynasty alone, there were 20 prime ministers. But even so, the princess of Xincheng, the daughter of the first emperor, was also married. So Li Zhi promoted Wei zhengju to eight levels. But this time, the new town princess did not get happiness. It is possible that the princess could not forget her ex husband. At that time, it was often heard that the son-in-law was rude to the princess. Therefore, the descendants believed that the new town Princess died of domestic violence. But this statement is not accurate. First of all, the new town is a princess in high position, loved by her father and brother. It is a great help of the prince-in-law in the official arena. It is no good for Wei zhengju to quarrel with the princess. Secondly, Li Zhi thought that his sister would soon recover from illness, so he built a temple for her to pray for her. Unexpectedly, the new town suddenly died, which was unacceptable to Gaozong, so he blamed Wei zhengju and put him to death. However, according to historical records, this case is a case of injustice. Later, Emperor Gaozong buried the new town together with Wei zhengju. It is said that there was still a monument to the emperor's son-in-law.
After the death of the princess, Emperor Gaozong was deeply grieved and buried with empress's gift, which was the only case in Tang Dynasty. Later experts came into the tomb and found an amazing scene. All the servants painted in the murals in the tomb were beheaded. Experts later came to the conclusion that it should be Li Zhi's reason for disputing the death of the princess to the servants beside her.
