The first two years of TV series "Li Wei in office" was a hit, and Xu Zheng's humorous Li Wei was also well received. However, from a variety of materials, it seems that Li Wei in history is not so. (Xu Zheng himself admits that he doesn't know what Li Wei is like in history. He said that the director told him this way. Li Wei "is illiterate, the fourth master's servant, loves riding and collecting gadgets.")
Li Wei, a native of Xuzhou, Jiangsu Province, was born in 1687 and died in 1738. Li Wei was not on the right way to become an official, but his family spent money to buy him the qualification of supervisor and donated money to him. Because he didn't read much when he was a child, even if the official did a lot later, Li Wei would make some jokes about typos.
Although Li Wei has no culture, he is very smart. After his master drafted the official document and read it to him, he can always find out the key point of the problem, and then orally let the master modify it. Everyone is very convinced about this. When Li Wei was promoted to the court for trial, he was more nimble in thinking and judgment, and there was no suspicion of illiteracy.
According to the biography of DAGONGWEI in xiaocangshan house collection, Li jianlai has a big body, big waist and strong arms. He looks like a man of arms (quite different from the image played by Xu Zheng). It's easy to recognize when walking on the street, because Li Wei's face is big as a basin, his nostrils are open, and he is different from ordinary people. However, although Li Wei has a figure, he looks white. It's a pity that he has a pockmarked face. It's a pity.
Li Wei is a strong and vigorous man. He likes to practice martial arts since he was a child. After he became an official, he built a brave and healthy camp and recruited some strong men to practice fighting skills. Every time Li Wei leads Yongjian camp to go out to catch robbers, he also wears gold armor, holds iron Ruyi, directs himself and leads an addiction. However, he didn't think much of his image as a warrior. Once Li Wei asked Yongzheng to take the initiative to fight in the northwest battlefield. Yongzheng said scornfully, "I know you are not this material. Don't worry.".
According to the anecdote of famous people, shortly after Yongzheng came to power, he found that there was a lot of money and food deficit in each province, so he issued an imperial edict to check it, and the officials in each province were panicked at the news. When Li Wei was governor of Zhejiang Province, he immediately called his staff to discuss the countermeasures. Those under him couldn't think of any good way. Li Wei said, "if you don't invite the imperial minister to come, the emperor will not meet us. But if the imperial minister comes, and we who are the governors have no right to do the investigation, I'm afraid the debt will be exposed. It's better for me to take the initiative to play the court and say that "the money and grain in Zhejiang Province have been in disuse for a long time, just taking advantage of the opportunity of checking by the Imperial Envoys. However, I'm afraid that when I first arrived at the place, I didn't know what to do. As a local official, I should cooperate with you and ask the emperor to make a decision. "
Later, Li Wei pretended that he was going to have a birthday and asked officials from 72 prefectures and counties in central Zhejiang Province to come to celebrate his birthday. In the middle of the birthday feast, Li Wei called these people to the secret room and said, "the imperial minister in charge of checking money and grain will come soon. If you owe something, please don't deceive me. I can help you. If you don't obey me, don't blame me for not giving you a chance when you are caught and killed." When they were afraid, they all said, "listen to your excellency." After Li Wei asked these people to go back, whether there was a debt or not, they were all truthfully registered and handed over to him to let him know.
After Yongzheng received Li Wei's Memorial, he agreed to his proposal. Then he sent Peng Weixin, the Minister of the Ministry of housing, to Zhejiang Province for inspection, and approved Li Wei to assist in the inspection. At that time, Peng Weixin had been checked in other provinces in the south of the Yangtze River. This man worked carefully. In addition, the governors in the south of the Yangtze River did not dare to interfere with his work. As a result, there were many problems. Many people were arrested by him. Peng Weixin was also going to report to the imperial court to punish these people for the crime of "running, beheading, supervising and chasing". All these made people panic and complain.
After checking other provinces, Peng Weixin was still in the mood. Later, he was ordered to come to Zhejiang bravely. Unexpectedly, when Li Wei met with him, he took out Yongzheng's instructions and said, "the court asked me to help you with your checking work. Please discuss how to do it together." Peng Weixin saw that Li Wei had Yongzheng's instructions in his hand, and he took back many of them.
Later, Li Wei set up a banquet for Peng Weixin to receive the wind. During the wine tour, Li Wei sighed: "there has never been a dispute without working together. I'm impatient, like to argue with people, and I've been criticized by the emperor many times. I hope I don't have a dispute with adults this time, but I don't know how to have no dispute. "Peng Weixin said," well, let's check by county, how about that? "Li Wei said," OK. "
Li Wei now asked his entourage to write the names of the counties and states in Zhejiang Province on paper, and then they squeezed the paper into a ball and put it on a plate. Li Wei and Peng Weixin each took half of the paper. What Peng Weixin didn't expect was that these paper balls were actually made by Li Wei. Those who were in deficit or not were secretly marked with different marks. Li Wei took most of the States and counties that were in deficit, and gave Peng Weixin all the ones that had no big problems.
Later, although Peng Weixin made a thorough investigation, he got nothing because Li Wei had done it for a long time. When Li Wei made an inventory, he asked the States and counties that owed money to make up for it as soon as possible and put things in order as soon as possible. After the inspection, Li Wei and Peng Weixin met and asked, "how is it? Are there any debts in different places?" Peng Weixin said, "No." Li Wei pretended to be an accident, but said happily, "Congratulations, I don't have any here."
So the two, together playing court, said that Zhejiang did not owe. After receiving the report, Yongzheng was very happy and said, "people say that there are many troubles in checking, but Li Wei has nothing there. It seems that this kid has a hand." Later, Yongzheng granted Li Wei the title of crown prince and a great reward, and other officials at all levels in Zhejiang Province were promoted. As a result, those under him were completely convinced of Li Wei.
Li Wei is a stubborn man, but once he met someone who is more stubborn than him. One day, Li Wei asked an assistant named Tian Fang to write a memorial to the emperor, asking him to seal his family for five generations. Tian Fang refused to write, saying, "I have never heard of the most three generations who have asked for the canon. I can't write this fold." Li Wei said, "don't worry, just write it.". Tian Fang still refused to write, which made Li Wei angry and scolded: "you son of a bitch, I want you to write, there is no precedent, I will set a precedent, what do you do?"
Tian Fang was scolded and stood up in a flash. She said angrily, "I think it's the adults who have lost their heads. Depending on the emperor's love for you for a while, you don't pay attention to the imperial court. If you don't thank me for my persuasion, you still insult me. It's not enough for adults to be their descendants. I'm also their descendants. I haven't been sealed for one generation, but you scold my son-in-law. Is there any reason? I just refuse to accept it! Refuse to accept it
Li Wei never met a man who spoke to him like this. For a while, he couldn't face himself, so he had to be angry again. He said, "even if I'm wrong, if you don't agree with me, what can you do?" Tian Fang said, "you're an adult and I'm a petty official. Don't say that adults scold me. I can't do anything. Even if you kill me, I can't do anything! Unfortunately, the power of adults can be imposed on me In the body of villain, but the principle of small officials is still straight to the adults! "
Tian Fang finished, turned around and left. Li Wei was stunned by what he said, and there was no voice for a long time. That night, Li Wei sent for Tian Fang again. Tian Fang thought that she was too impulsive when she went back in the afternoon. When she heard Li Wei's call, she thought she wanted to kill him. When she went in, her feet trembled and her face looked like dirt. She didn't want Li Wei to come forward and hold his hand. She said with a smile, "you have a little courage, but it's a pity to be a petty official. Unlike I borrowed 1200 Liang silver from you, you should go to buy a county magistrate and become an official in the future In that way, be upright and do good work. " Tian Fang didn't expect Li Wei to do this to him. Later, Tian Fang became a prefect of Fuping County and Fengxiang county. She had a good reputation as an official.
Li Weihe and ertai were the three most favored officials in the Yongzheng Dynasty. Yong normally said that they were "model governors". However, Tian Wenjing is a little bit of a villain. Seeing that Li Wei is favored and envied, he secretly speaks ill of him in front of Yongzheng, but Yongzheng is not moved. Tian Wenjing, unable to make a plan, turned to pacify Li Wei. Once upon a time, when Li Wei's mother died, Tian Wenjing pretended to be high-profile and sent someone to mourn and give Li Wei a great gift. After learning that, Li Wei scolded: "although my mother died, I didn't drink a spoon of water from a villain." Later, Li Wei ordered his men to keep Tian Wenjing's emissary out of the gate, and threw the things Tian Wenjing sent into the pigsty to show that they didn't want to make friends with him.
In other words, why Li Wei, who was not born in the imperial examination, was put into use mainly depends on Yongzheng's standard of material selection. In Kangxi's later years, when he elected officials, the most important thing was their integrity and ability. As a result, officials from all over the country only paid attention to the reputation of being honest and upright, but they didn't do anything practical. However, it's hard to distinguish the corrupt officials in the world. They pursue the honest officials blindly and cause a lot of malpractices. After Yongzheng came to power, he often told Li Wei that this honest official was like a puppet, which was useless in the eyes of the people and was of no benefit to the people's livelihood. Therefore, Yongzheng's employment should be based on talent first, followed by qualification or imperial examination background. Just like Li Wei's posthumous title "Minda", it not only reflects Li Wei's way of being an official, but also reflects Yongzheng's standard of selecting an official. Because of this, Li Wei stands out and becomes an able official of Yongzheng Dynasty.
It's a great blessing to be born in his own life, to meet a noble person.
