In ancient China, it can be said that it is the pioneer of "iron hand anti-corruption". He formulated laws and orders such as "Ming Dynasty Gao" and invented "peeling last grass" to crack down on official corruption, which led to the situation of "Hong Wu Zhi Zhi Zhi Zhi" in the early stage. The official atmosphere was one of Qing Dynasty, and the official administration was Qing Dynasty for more than a hundred years.
In the process of rectifying the official system, Zhu Yuanzhang always insisted on being cold-blooded, vigorous, never soft, even the relatives of the emperor. He personally ordered his son-in-law Ouyang Lun to die, which was the most wonderful stroke in his anti-corruption process.
According to the records of the Ming Dynasty, Zhu Yuanzhang "took ouyanglun as the emperor's son-in-law and the fourth Royal daughter.". Zhu Yuanzhang has 16 daughters, of which his favorite is the clever Princess Anqing. Therefore, it took a lot of effort to select Princess Anqing's son-in-law, and finally fell in love with Ouyang Lun.
In the history of the Ming Dynasty, "Lun is quite illegal. At the end of Hongwu Period, the tea was strictly forbidden. Several private tea sellers were sent out of the country. Even though the officials dare not ask them. There are domestic slaves, Zhou baozhe, especially Heng, who often call dozens of sikmin cars. He is good at beating and insulting the officials of the inspection department of the river crossing bridge. Officials can't bear to hear. The emperor is furious. He will die if he is given a gift. He will be killed if he is sure to wait. "
The death of Zhu Yuanzhang's son-in-law was recorded in the third volume of the original records of the emperor Taizu, the records of the tea law of salt law and the biographies, especially the biographies of the princess. In drama and folktale, the content is more abundant.
Ouyanglun was born as a Jinshi, who was deeply loved by Zhu Yuanzhang. In 1381, Zhu Yuanzhang married Princess Anqing to him. After ouyanglun became the son-in-law, he showed all kinds of love to the princess, and was deeply loved by Princess Anqing.
However, with the power and prestige, his life began to degenerate. At first, he spent a lot of money to decorate his son-in-law's mansion, which was more magnificent than the imperial palace; then he collected rare treasures everywhere. For a while, officials from all over the country rushed to the door to "donate".
But his desire for money was endless, and he soon found a way to become rich, that is, smuggling tea. In the early Ming Dynasty, in order to control the Xifan ethnic minority areas, Zhu Yuanzhang exchanged tea produced in the Central Plains for Xifan horses, so tea became an important strategic material of the Ming Empire. Zhu Yuanzhang promulgated the tea horse law to prohibit tea smuggling.
Driven by the interests, Ouyang Lun privately appointed Zhou Bao, a domestic slave, to use government vehicles and private vehicles to "send private tea vendors out of the country" for huge profits.
Zhou Bao, relying on his master's power and arrogance, commanded the huge tea smuggling motorcade to break through the checkpoints without paying taxes or dismounting, but local officials stopped him and scolded him if he didn't fight. And Ouyang Lun is even more unreasonable, personally beat the blue field county river and bridge inspection tax officials. The beaten officials were angry but told him.
Zhu Yuanzhang was furious at the news: "I only do one law, but it's the first bad one!" just after I promulgated the tea horse law, you took the lead as the son-in-law to violate it! You were ordered to arrest ouyanglun for questioning. Hearing the news, Princess Anqing and she rushed into the palace to plead for Ouyang Lun.
Zhu Yuanzhang knew the consequences of the execution of his son-in-law. His beloved daughter Princess anqing would become a widow. He and empress Ma would also lose their son-in-law and the royal face.
However, if he doesn't kill his son-in-law, how can he serve the people? If he doesn't, how can he be safe? Therefore, Zhu Yuanzhang resolutely kills his son-in-law Ouyang Lun and Zhou baoyigan. This shocked the whole country and stopped the corruption.
