Many people don't understand the story of Huo's conspiracy. Next, I will enjoy it with Xiaobian.
As a Ming Minister of the Western Han Dynasty, he was worshiped and sacrificed by the emperor all the time after his death, but his family was cut off by the whole family because of the failure of the conspiracy. Huo Guang's wife, son, nephew, son-in-law and so on all survived. Many people don't understand why Huo Guang's family chose to revolt. In fact, it was related to Huo Guang's power inclination at that time. Although he trusted Huo Guang, he was also full of fear for him. After all, the minister was so powerful that he naturally felt insecure for the emperor. In fact, the death of the Huo family has long been seeded.
I. Huo Guangping
Huo Guang, the son of Meng, originally lived in Pingyang with his father Huo Zhongru. At that time, he was just an ordinary young man from the family of petty officials.
Only because of one person, completely changed Huo Guang's life path.
The man was Huo Guang's half brother, then.
Because Huo Guang is very handsome, has a high face value, is a man, and is loyal and diligent. When young general Huo Qubing went to Pingyang to visit his father, he appreciated his younger brother, who was only in his teens. He asked Huo's father for permission, and then brought him back to Chang'an for cultivation.
Huo Guang, a low-key and capable man, soon got a foothold in Chang'an. He also preferred Huo Qubing. He took special care of Huo Guang naturally. He was first arranged to be an ordinary Langguan. Seeing that he acted steadily and worked hard, he soon moved to serve.
His elder brother Huo Qubing's long life made Huoguang know how to behave carefully. He understood that he had no support, and he had to be steady to make his own debut, so that he could live up to his elder brother Huoqubing's care and support.
Since then, Huo Guang has worked harder to deal with this hard-earned task. Emperor Wudi of Han Dynasty saw that Huo Guang was still devoted to his post, and he acted calmly and cautiously. He was very appreciative of Huo Guang, so he promoted him to be the captain of the Ministry of vehicle service and worked as a bodyguard beside him.
In this way, Huo Guang transferred to serve Emperor Hanwu for more than 20 years. In the past 20 years, Huo Guang, who knows self-discipline and self-respect, has been diligent in his duties and successfully completed all tasks assigned by the bodyguard with his own ingenuity and ability. In this way, Emperor Wudi of Han Dynasty naturally saw Huo Guang as a reliable pillar of the country, which was worthy of great use. He gradually valued Huoguang and trusted him more.
II. Huo Guang assisted emperor Zhao of Han Dynasty
In his later years, Emperor Wudi of Han Dynasty was suspicious, slandered by craftsmen, and partial to listen. He lost sight of the case of witches and demagogues, which was instigated by the emissary of embroidering clothes. In a rage, he killed all the crown prince parties headed by the empress and crown prince, and angrily set up the 8-year-old crown prince as the emperor's reserve. The painter drew a picture of the princes of the auxiliary Dynasty and gave it to Huo Guang.
Understanding Huo Guang's meaning of Tuo Gu, Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty, he kept a low profile and began to help Liu Fuling wholeheartedly.
In 87 BC, after the death of Emperor Wu of Han Dynasty, Liu Fuling succeeded as emperor Zhao of Han Dynasty. Huo Guang was appointed as the chief minister and general of Han Dynasty. He was appointed as the Minister of duty together with doctor Guanglu, general Zuo Shangguan and the official of imperial history to assist the government.
After Huo Guang was appointed as the first assistant, he still acted calmly, and paid attention to following the pro people policy of Emperor Wu of Han Dynasty: light corvee and light taxes, encouraging farming, resting with the people, prohibiting cruelty, reducing taxes and equalizing grievances, etc. Within a few years, the socio-economic recovery and development during the reign of emperor Zhao of the Han Dynasty, Huo Guang's prestige is also growing day by day.
This has aroused the concern and dissatisfaction of the ministers who are also devoted to their lives, sang Hongyang and others.
Shangguan Jie and Huoguang were originally the eldest daughters of Huoguang, Shangguan Jie's son shangguan'an's wife. In order to consolidate his position in the court, Shangguan Jie intended to become the "first person", so he planned to make his son shangguan'an's daughter, who was only 6 years old, the queen. This was opposed by Huo Guang. Because it involved his granddaughter, he concealed it and didn't think much about it.
Later, Shangguan Jie turned to support Princess Gai to help, which made it a success. In order to repay Princess Gai Chang, Shangguan Jie planned to support her sweetheart Ding wairen as a marquis, but he was rejected by Huo Guangyan.
Because of these two refusals, Shangguan Jie held a grudge against Huoguang, so he joined forces with sanghongyang, who was also dissatisfied with Huoguang, and other important officials to prepare for a coup, to capture and kill Huoguang at one stroke, and to change Liu Dan, king of Yan, to Emperor.
Liu Fuling, Emperor Zhao of Han Dynasty, was only 14 years old at that time, but he was very astute. He saw through the ambitions of Shangguan Jie and others, and then made Huo Guang take the opportunity to deal with the impending coup crisis.
Huo Guang, who has no high hopes, decided to take advantage of Shangguan Jie and other people's plans to make trouble, and killed Shangguan Jie's father and son and sang Hongyang and other people at one stroke. In front of the iron evidence, Liu Dan, the king of Yan, and princess gaichang committed suicide.
A crisis has been properly eliminated. Since then, Ma Huoguang, the chief minister, gained the full trust of emperor Zhao of the Han Dynasty and became the actual decision-maker in the period of emperor Zhao.
Fortunately, Huo Guang was a loyal and capable minister who encouraged farming and rest with the people at home; he restored the policy of reconciliation with the Xiongnu to ease the hostile relationship and make up for the national strength consumed by the late Warring States of the Han Dynasty.
This period, together with the further development of social economy in the later period of Emperor Xuan of Han Dynasty, became another flourishing period after the Western Han Dynasty.
III. Huo Guang set a historical record of the abolition of the emperor by a generation of powerful officials
After killing Shangguan Jie and sanghongyang, Huo Guang became the most powerful official in the reign of emperor Zhao. In fact, the empress of Shangguan was his granddaughter, and Huo Guang was in power for a while.
Due to the poor health and no offspring of emperor hanzhao, his adopted son took the throne after he died a few years ago.
Who knows that when Liu he became emperor, he didn't care about the government at all. He just wanted to have fun. He often had a feast in the back palace, singing and dancing. He made the court a mess and wanted to take Huo Guang's power.
Seeing that the situation was in danger, Huo Guang had a secret agreement with some important officials, such as Da Si Ma Tian Yan Nian and general Cheqi. When Liu He's wings were not full, the prime minister led all the officials to express to the superior officer the letter to the emperor Liu He that Liu he could not succeed. The Empress Dowager directly sent an imperial edict to abolish Liu He's throne.
Liu He only ascended the throne of emperor 27 days, because of mischief and "class. This is the classic legend of the first time in history that the emperor was abolished by a powerful minister.
IV. Huo Guang established emperor Xuandi of Han Dynasty
After Liu he was abolished, under the guidance of Huo Guang, the grandson of the late Prince Liu Xun (later renamed) was elected as the new emperor, which was the emperor Xuandi of Han Dynasty.
In the early days of emperor Xuandi's reign, Huo Guang was still the most important official, and he had full power to deal with the Court Affairs. Careful Huo Guang knew the hidden danger brought by "great achievements", so he told emperor Xuandi of Han Dynasty that he wanted to "return to the government".
Although the Emperor Xuan of Han Dynasty, who had a deep mind and was good at forbearance, wanted to be in charge of politics and was very afraid of Huo Guang, he was still in power at that time, which made him blind. He said, "you don't have to return to politics, but the state affairs have to be completely handled by you. Only my Yuanpei wife, who suffered a lot with me in the countryside, can you hold her as the queen? I just hope to work with you She's old and white. "
Huo Guang took pity for a while and agreed to the request of Emperor Xuan of Han Dynasty. However, Huo Guang's wife was dissatisfied with his daughter's failure to become the queen, so she bribed chunyuyan, the royal doctor, to poison Xu when she gave birth to a child.
Emperor Xuandi had no choice but to endure the grief. He dealt with the matter in a simple way, but he didn't show any hatred in front of Huo Guang. He also made Huo Guang's daughter the queen.
Huo Guang, a powerful man, relaxed his vigilance to Emperor Xuandi of Han Dynasty. However, Huo Guang's neglect of his family also buried the hidden danger of being killed. Since then, the family has become more willful and more style of work, which makes Emperor Xuan of Han Dynasty firm his determination and long-term plan.
V. after his death, Huo Guang enjoys great sorrow and honor
In April of 68 BC, Huo Guang, a powerful man, died of illness. Emperor Xuan of the Han Dynasty held a state funeral for it. He bestowed such royal burial objects as jade clothes and bedchamber. He buried Huo Guang with emperor level funeral ceremoniously, buried him in Maoling, and gave him Xuancheng.
As soon as the Empress Dowager comes to attend the funeral of Huo Guang, she will compare Huo Guang with the Prime Minister of the early Han Dynasty. She is supposed to be buried in the state ceremony. Officials with salaries of more than 2000 stones in the court will come to worship, and 300 households will be placed to serve Huo Guang's tomb. It can be said that after Huo Guang's death, he also enjoyed great sorrow and honor.
At the same time, Emperor Xuan of the Han Dynasty allowed his legacy to play, and transferred 3000 of his fiefdoms to his nephew Huoshan.
Later, Emperor Xuandi of the Han Dynasty also made painters draw images of 11 meritorious officials, and hang them in Qilin pavilion to show their merits. Huo Guang ranked first.
VI. The Huo family has been beheaded by the whole family
Huo Guang, a calm and steady power minister, died of hard work all his life. The Huo family was finally bewildered by a series of concealing methods adopted by Emperor Xuandi of Han Dynasty.
On the burial of Huo Guang, Huo Guang's wife didn't make enough money, and her tomb was expanded again. Emperor Xuan of the Han Dynasty remained silent, acquiesced and forbeared.
The Huo family did not converge because of the death of Huo Guang, the "backbone". Instead, it was more indulgent because of the absence of Huo Guang's dissuasion. In addition, the Emperor Xuan of the Han Dynasty buried Huo Guang's incomparable scenery and gave the Huo family unlimited rewards, which made the Huo family extremely proud and thought that the Han Dynasty could be deceived. However, without the support of his Huo family, they would not be able to deal with politics, so they would be domineering and arrogant everywhere.
In 66 BC, the fourth year after Huo Guang's death, the Huo family was forced to go to Liangshan by the emperor Xuandi of Han Dynasty who was ready to go. However, at this time, the Huo family is already "" where is the Royal rival? The coup launched by the Huo family in a hurry is just a crime of conspiracy. Xuanhe and Huo's family were all arrested, the whole family was transcribed, Huoguang's wife and son, nephew and son-in-law were all killed, Huoshan and huoyun committed suicide, and Huo Chengjun, the queen, was abandoned.
After his death, Huo Guang, who acted calmly all his life, still did not escape the merciless arrangement of fate, and was dragged into the crime of conspiracy by his family, which became a historical stain that could not be washed away.
This is something he never thought of. Fortunately, Emperor Xuan of the Han Dynasty, Emperor Xuan and Emperor Xuan of the Han Dynasty all worshiped Huo Guang, read his assistant's contribution, and increased 100 households to guard his tomb.
Historical facts show that although Huo Guang can be strict with himself, he also needs to be alert to his family's neglect of discipline. It can be seen that a good family style is equally important and indispensable!
