Today's story brought to you by Xiaobian can be read by interested readers together with Xiaobian.
Duke Huan of Qi is also known as the most powerful overlord in the period, and also the first overlord in the spring and Autumn period and the Warring States period. His father was Zhu Er, who had two older brothers before him,
The other is childish correction.
It's reasonable to say that the position of the monarch can't be changed in any way, but the plan can't catch up with the change. After the death of Duke Qi, Duke Qi Xiang succeeded him. However, because of his lust and lust, Duke Qi Xiang and his sister incest were finally called by the minister and assassinated by his father, so he became the underground ghost.
After the death of Duke Xiang of Qi, the nephew of Duke Xiang of Qi became the king of the state, but it wasn't long before Gongsun ignorance was killed by Yongpeng. After Gongsun ignorance was killed, the state of Qi had no leader for a while. Some people suggested that Yingli's son should correct his position, while others chose Xiaobai's position.
However, in the battle for the throne of the state of Qi, Xiaobai, the brave and intelligent young man, finally won, that is, later Duke Huan of Qi. After Duke Huan of Qi succeeded to the throne, he first pardoned those who had "enemies of shooting hooks" with him, and then he worshipped Guan Zhong as his father and also led the Prime Minister of the state of Qi.
Duke Huan of Qi, regardless of the previous suspicion, appointed Guan Zhong as the prime minister, and actively implemented the system of integration of military and government, and integration of military and people, which made the state of Qi, which was on the decline Road, return to the road of prosperity.
In 681 B.C., Duke Huan of Qi accepted Guan Zhong's suggestion and held the first alliance in Beixing since he was the overlord. Only in the eight countries that he convened, there were only four monarchs, namely, Chen, he, and Ying.
The most ironic thing is that the monarch of the song state who came to join the alliance quietly ran away. In a rage, Duke Huan of Qi led the vassal states to attack the song state under the guise of Zhou Tian, and the song state finally gave in and chose to seek peace. During the 43 years of Duke Huan's reign, he had nine leagues in Beixing, Kedi, Judi, Youdi, Zhaoling, Taodi, kuiqu and other places. In fact, it also fully proved the success of the strategy of "respecting the king and hustling the foreigners" proposed by Guan Zhong.
However, in his later years, such a king with great talent made a series of unforgivable mistakes. In 645 BC, when Guan Zhong was seriously ill, Duke Huan of Qi went to visit him and asked him how to succeed in the military affairs?
Duke Huan of Qi asked, "who can take the place of you, and how about changing your teeth?"
Guan Zhong replied, "please your king by killing your children. You can't use someone who doesn't like you!"
Duke Huan of Qi asked, "how about the prescription?"
Guan Zhong replied, "you can't turn your back on your relatives to meet the king!"
Duke Huan of Qi asked again, "how is it?"
Guan Zhong replied, "if you castrate your body to please the king, you will not cherish it. How can you be loyal to your king? These three are not available!"
However, after Guan Zhong died of illness, Duke Huan of Qi took Guan Zhong's earnest admonition as an example, which eventually led to the decline of Qi's national strength in his later years. The three treacherous officials, Yiya, Kaifang and zhidiao, made Qi's military and politics a mess.
In 643 B.C., Duke Huan of Qi was seriously ill, and the power of the court was completely controlled by these three treacherous officials. Why did his five sons fight for the throne? The state of Qi was in chaos. Duke Huan of Qi, the leader of a generation, ended up starving to death. 67 days after his death, all the bodies were dead, but no one was responsible for burial.
It's a great irony that the poor generation of heroes, the monarchs of Jiuhe and Yikuang the world, were so dignified in their lives and such an ending after their death. It is said that Duke Huan of Qi left seven words before he died, but later generations laughed at him for thousands of years. The seven words were: "regret not listening to the words of Zhongfu!"
