Readers who don't know how to spend all their money, let's take a look at it in detail~
Speaking of the most famous corrupt officials in Chinese history, you will think of them at the first time. Depending on the relationship with, he Chen has been an official for decades and embezzled a large amount of silver. After his death, he immediately began to carry out a comprehensive liquidation. After preliminary statistics, the value of the items searched from his home amounted to 800 million Liang silver, equivalent to the total income of 15 years at that time. Therefore, there was a folk saying that he fell down and Jiaqing was full. So the question is, why did emperor Jiaqing spend all this money in one year?
In fact, it is not that emperor Jiaqing is too extravagant and wasteful. He also has his own difficulties. First of all, although it is worth 800 million liang of silver that is searched from the house of Hezhu, it doesn't mean that there are 800 million liang of silver in the house of Hezhu. In fact, most of the relics, antiques, calligraphy and paintings or rare treasures stored in the house of Hezhu are of high value. In fact, the real gold and silver are very few. Even if Jiaqing plans to have an auction of Hezhu's family property Yes, no one can afford to buy all his collection in a short time, so Jiaqing can't spend money.
Secondly, in the process of family copying, the family copying officials who had a deep hatred for him certainly took the opportunity to embezzle part of his property. You know, at that time, the two princes who were in charge of copying were Prince Yongxuan and married Prince Yongxuan. Their officers and soldiers were also greedy when they saw that he was such an astonishing property. Although they were afraid to take more because of emperor Jiaqing's will, they could not stand up for more people. So although the amount reported was 800 million Liang silver, Emperor Jiaqing could not count it by himself, So it's very likely that he Chen's family property has been moved.
Thirdly, when Jiaqing took over the Qing Dynasty, the great white lotus uprising was breaking out in Sichuan. At that time, the scale of the uprising was very large, and several general soldiers sent by Jiaqing were defeated. Soldiers need to pay for their battles. Naturally, the money is not going to go out of the place, and it will be finally counted on the head of emperor Jiaqing. According to statistics, over nine years after the uprising of the white lotus sect, the Qing Dynasty sent out 200 million liang of silver in the light of military pay, which has not yet calculated all kinds of burial fees and pensions. Even if Jiaqing had the ability to turn all the 800 million household assets of hechen into cash silver, Jiaqing would spend all of it in less than one year.
So to sum up, in the situation of the internal and external difficulties of the Qing Dynasty, even if the emperor Jiaqing confiscated the huge amount of property of Hezhu in a short period of time, but if there was no measures to cut costs, it would only be a windfall, not for a long time.
