Hello everyone, this is Xiaobian. Today, I'd like to tell you the story of Dong Cheng. Welcome to pay attention.
No matter ideological or artistic, romance has reached a very high level, and its basic plot structure is generally in line with the facts. As a historical novel, it is rare and valuable. It is much more rigorous and wise than the popular phenomenon of "joking about history". But the author Luo Guanzhong, after all, is a novelist rather than a historian, who inevitably deviates from the description of individual historical figures.
In A.D. 192, Xiliang warlords, relying on their strong military strength, entered the capital in a mighty way and opened the curtain of "the chaos of Dong Zhuo". The arrogant and fierce Dong Zhuo, who arbitrarily abolished the establishment of the emperor, killed the ministers, connived the army to burn, kill and plunder wantonly, provoked, and finally became the target of the public. He was attacked jointly by all the princes and killed himself.
After Dong Zhuo's death, his army and subordinate generals were also divided and went their separate ways. Dong Cheng, the leader of Dong Zhuo's subordinates, appeared in this era. In the romance of the Three Kingdoms, Dong Cheng is described as a big loyal official with a clear heart, who vows to be loyal to the death, and has a tit for tat struggle with the act of insurrection, which is almost blown into a flower. In fact, he can be called the most profound traitor in the Three Kingdoms.
In the romance of the Three Kingdoms, Dong Cheng acted as the confidant of Emperor Xian of the Han Dynasty, risked great risks to take the Emperor Xian's dress and imperial edict out of the palace, and regardless of personal safety, organized anti Cao forces in series, mobilized, Prince Fu and others, and prepared to launch a secret action against Cao Cao, in order to eliminate the traitors, revive the Han Dynasty, and finally was found and executed by Cao Cao Cao, who is still regarded as a hero.
But in the real history, Dong Cheng's image is not so. Dong Cheng is a very "eye value" role, very good at speculation. When Dong Zhuo prospered, Dong Cheng had a close relationship with Niu Fu, Dong Zhuo's son-in-law, and was one of the backbone forces of Dong Zhuo group. After Dong Zhuo's death, Dong Chengli changed course and became a "fan" of Emperor Xian of the Han Dynasty. He was ready to win a big fortune with the banner of Emperor Xian of the Han Dynasty.
Among the warlords of the Three Kingdoms, Dong Cheng was the first to see that "holding the emperor in order to make the princes" was a good move, so he also followed Han Xiandi closely and wanted to hold him as a chess piece. Dong Chengxian then United warlords Zhang Yang, Han Siam and others to support his troops and self-respect, and tried to form an armed group to forge ahead in the world. However, his ability was really mediocre and he lacked the commander-in-chief's talent, and he failed to cultivate a strong personal armed force. His cooperation with Zhang Yang, Han Siam and others was also haunting.
Dong Cheng just wanted to make use of Han Xian emperor from beginning to end. He had no loyalty to Han Xian emperor in his heart. According to the book, in the second year of Xingping, Emperor Xian of the Han Dynasty fled from Chang'an to Luoyang, and was in a mess. Dong Cheng saw the waiter holding some good silks and satins and was greedy. He ordered his subordinates to seize them with swords. He killed empress Fu's waiter on the spot. The blood splashed on empress Fu's clothes. His ferocity was startling.
The so-called "dress belt edict" incident is also very tiresome. According to the records of the later Han Dynasty and the Han Dynasty, it can be doubted whether the Emperor Xian really handed over the imperial edict to Dong Cheng. The truth of the matter is that Dong Cheng, in order to fight with Cao Cao for the control of Emperor Xian of Han Dynasty, falsely preached the imperial edict and ordered the world,. In fact, Cao Cao's strength was invincible at that time, and Emperor Xian of Han Dynasty was completely controlled by Cao Cao. Dong Cheng's action was a joke on the life of Emperor Xian of Han Dynasty.
Liu Bei, who was dedicated to reviving the Han Dynasty, saw the "imperial edict of dress belt" but refused to participate in it. He realized that the "imperial edict of dress belt" was forged by Dong Cheng, which could not save the Han Dynasty from sacrificing the emperor, and would probably cause an unexpected disaster to the Han Dynasty. Therefore, Liu Bei refused to go into this muddy water. Throughout Dong Cheng's life, he didn't bring any substantial help to Emperor Xian of the Han Dynasty. Instead, he put him in a desperate situation several times. If he got it, it would be just another Cao Cao. It's a pity that Luo Guanzhong failed to recognize the true face of this man and regarded him as a loyal minister.
