Today, I have prepared the article for you: Governor General of Guangdong, Guangdong and Guangxi. Let's have a look at it quickly!
In fact, the governors of Guangdong and Guangxi were not only established during the reign of Jingtai. They belonged to imperial ministers and were only set up temporarily to deal with the rebellion. In the Qing Dynasty, the post of governor was a serious feudal official with great power.
So today I want to talk about the governor of Guangdong and Guangxi in the Qing Dynasty.
Specifically speaking, since the 12th year of Yongzheng, the governor of Guangdong, Guangxi and other provinces have been established. In particular, Hainan was also subordinate to Guangxi at that time.
So what are the responsibilities of the governor of Guangdong and Guangxi?
The full name of the governor of Guangdong and Guangxi is "governor of Guangdong and other places, governor of military affairs, food and pay, and governor"
We know that the governor is in charge of civil affairs. The governor is one level higher than the governor. In addition to the administration of civil affairs, the assessment of subordinate officials, he is also in charge of military affairs. He can mobilize the local army, which is equivalent to the governor and commander-in-chief of the two provinces.
In addition to the governor of Guangdong and Guangxi, there were eight governors in the Qing Dynasty, namely, Liangjiang, Liangguang, Zhili, Fujian and Zhejiang, Huguang, Sichuan, Yungui, Shaanxi and Gansu. In fact, the governor's functions and powers were almost the same. However, Zhili was located in the capital, and the two rivers were the richest, ranking first. In the early Qing Dynasty, only Guangzhou had one port to do business, and the tax revenue was rich. Therefore, the governor of Guangdong and Guangxi had a very high position, ranking third behind the governor of the two rivers. Obviously, people who are competent for the post of governor must have both culture and martial arts, so the governor is appointed directly, and he is also very careful in his choice, at least he must be a person trusted by the emperor.
Many people we know have served as governors of Guangdong and Guangxi, such as Lin Zexu, Li Hongzhang, Zhang Zhidong, Zeng Guoquan, etc. There were also some governors of Guangdong and Guangxi who were difficult to be governors during the Opium War, such as Qi Shan, the leader of the Communist Party of China and the Communist Party of China. As a bridge of negotiation between the powers and the Qing government, the conditions put forward by the powers were very difficult for the Qing government to accept, so the Qing government could only carry the pot for the Qing government and be dismissed for questioning. Lin Zexu, who had been fighting before, was also dismissed and charged. And Huang Zonghan, who was dismissed by the Qing government for the reason of "hindering the peace", and those who "did not fight, do not fight, do not defend, do not die, do not surrender, do not leave", were captured after Guangzhou city broke, taken to India, and died in other places.
