Gao Yang wept sadly and would forgive them. Gao Zhan, who was the king of Changguang at that time, took the opportunity to say, "the beast can go out of the cave." Emperor Wen Xuan was silent. Gao Jun called out Gao Zhan's small words: "step down to Ji, and heaven will see you!" Later Gao Jun and Gao Huan were killed.

Later, he lived in Linzhang and gradually settled in the Central Plains. Gao Zhan likes to hold the body (a kind of chess play) before he ascends the throne. He and Shikai are good at it, so they are good friends. "It's out of the way when it's skillful, and it's good at talking about Hu pipa, because it's favored by relatives.". At that time, he Shikai flattered Gao Zhan: "Your Highness is not a man, but a emperor." Gao Zhan replied, "Qing is not the world, but the world God." After being emperor, Gao Zhan had to meet Shi Kai in a moment He Shikai admonishes Gao Zhan: "since ancient times, the emperor has been in the ashes. Yao, Shun, and Xianjun can make Zhou faint. What's the difference after his death! Your majesty should cherish the year of youth, play around and be happy with the enemy for thousands of years in a day. State affairs can command ministers as much as possible, why bother yourself! " Gaozhan Dayue, from then on, three or four days later, went up to the court and put on a pose, just signed a word, "a little wordless, just a moment before entering", and returned to the harem to continue playing. He Shikai "rapes and flatters the sun, dotes on milong, rewards before and after, and can't be remembered", and passes on the Hu family, the empress of Gaozhan.
Forced to rape the emperor's wife and maim the clan
After Gao Zhan succeeded, he forced empress Wenxuan (then known as empress Zhaoxin) to commit adultery with her and threatened her: "if you dare not, I will kill your son." Empress Li promised him for fear, and she has been loved since then. When she was pregnant, Gao Shaode, the king of Taiyuan, came to her palace. She didn't see her. Gao Shaode said angrily, "you don't see your son because you have a big stomach.". Empress Li was so ashamed that she killed her daughter by herself.
When Gao Zhan saw that his daughter had been killed, he was furious. He took Gao Shaode to the palace and raised his sword to drink angrily: "if you kill my daughter, I will kill your son!" Gaoshaode panicked and begged for mercy. Gaozhan scolded gaoshaode again: "I was beaten by your father, and you didn't come to save me!" Kill Gao Shaode with a knife ring on the spot. He whipped empress Li again, put her in a silk bag, and threw her into the channel and let the water drift. Empress Li woke up and sent it to Miaosheng temple to become a nun.

When he Shikai heard about it, he said to Gao Zhan, "Gao Xiaowan shoots the cursive man as you!" Gao Zhan orders Ju Xun, and Gao Xiaowan, a concubine who is out of favor, falsely says, "Xiao Wan draws his Majesty's figure and cries and gnaws his teeth at night." In fact, that image is Gao Cheng, the father of the king of Hejian, and his son's memory of his father, who often shed tears. Gao Zhan is furious. He grabs Gao Xiaowan into the palace and sends his guards to beat him with a whip. Later, he killed Gao Xiaowan himself.
In July of the third year of the Heqing Dynasty (564), due to the appearance of the astronomical images of "white hongguanri" and "Red Star", Gao Zhan thought it was ominous. He wanted to kill Gao Yan's Prince, who was king of Leling for a hundred years to suppress and subdue the disaster. At that time, there was a Boling man named Jia Debao who taught Gao Bainian calligraphy. Gao Bainian once described several words of "Chi". Jia Debao secretly reported this to Gao Zhan.
