Chai Rong suspected that the rumor had something to do with Zhang Yongde, so he dismissed him from his military post, changed him to prime minister, and promoted him from a low-level officer to a palace inspector. Chai Rong thought that Zhao Kuangyin, on the one hand, would be grateful, and on the other hand, he was not as likely to seize the throne as Zhang Yongde.
