A lot of people don't understand it. Next, let's enjoy it with Xiaobian.
Born in 192ad, Cao Chong was born in 196ad, only 4 years apart. The greatest advantage of Cao Zhi and Cao Chong is their talent and intelligence. Although the brothers were not born to a mother, they both inherited the genes of intelligence.
Cao Zhi needless to say, who knows luoshenfu and Qibu poem? Who doesn't? He is a genius and prodigy. When he was very young, his IQ exceeded that of adults. In addition, he and his wife were born to Cao Cao's wife, Bian, so there was a later dispute with Cao Pi over the throne.
Cao Chong, on the other hand, is a copy of Cao Zhi. He is even smarter than Cao Zhi.
When we were little, we only learned a text called "Cao Chong calls the elephant". That is all our memories of Cao Chong. But in fact, Cao Chong's classic stories are far more than these. Many people around him who have been wronged and punished are finally forgiven because of Cao Chong's plea. There are dozens of such cases. Cao Chong and another child, Zhou budoubtless, were called the two prodigies in the world at that time, so Cao Cao loved and cared for his son.
Unfortunately, heaven envies talented people. When Cao Chong was 13 years old, a plague broke out in the Central Plains. Cao Chong was not immune from the plague and was accepted by heaven. Otherwise, the Cao family has such talents, and will not be usurped by the Sima family.
Pestilence like this was rampant in the late Han Dynasty. China's population fell directly from more than 50 million in the late Han Dynasty to more than 10 million in the early Jin Dynasty. This does not include the lowest point in the middle - during the period of the Three Kingdoms, the population of the whole country was only over 7 million. Of course, war is also a big reason for the sharp decline in population.
Five of the "seven sons of Jian'an" later died of another great plague, which shows how terrible the plague was at that time and how helpless people were.
After Cao Chong's death, Cao Cao was very sad, and said to Cao Pi the famous saying: "this is my misfortune, and you Cao's happiness." It revealed the love of Cao Cao to Cao Chong. It's true that Cao Chong will not die. Cao Pi still has to work hard to stay stable.
Since Cao Chong had no offspring at the time of his death, Cao Cao adopted the son of Cao Xun, Cao Chong's second younger brother (at this time, Cao Xun was at most 12 years old, there should be no children, and the adoption should be something that happened later).
Cao Cao also presided over a major wedding ceremony for Cao Chong. Cao Pi's wife, a dead woman in her family, was assigned to be Cao Chong's wife, and then they were buried together, which meant that Cao Chong would not feel lonely underground.
Cao Chong's two younger brothers were also given preferential treatment, especially Cao Huang, the son of his younger brother Cao Yu, who later became the emperor of Cao Wei, but the last emperor.
