During the Warring States period, there were two Qin states leagues! I've brought you relevant contents. Please come and have a look at them.
In the period, the alliance among the princes was undoubtedly a common thing. For example, in the spring and Autumn period, the hegemonic leaders held many meetings. Generally speaking, in the spring and Autumn period and the Warring States period, there were few cases of detaining each other's monarchs. However, there are always exceptions. For example, in the spring and Autumn period, the monarch was detained during the alliance. However, what Chu didn't expect was that he would be detained.
In 299 BC, the state of Qin conquered eight cities of the state of Chu. King Zhaoxiang of Qin asked King Huai of Chu to meet him in Wuguan. King Huai of Chu did not listen to zhaosui and advice, so he decided to go to Wuguan and was detained by the state of Qin. Correspondingly, after detaining King Huai of Chu, the state of Qin held a meeting with him. Although something unpleasant happened, the state of Qin dare not detain it. So, the question is, does Qin dare to detain King Huai of Chu, but dare not detain King Huiwen of Zhao, because Qin is afraid of Zhao?
The "union of Mianchi" took place in 279 B.C. In the union of Mianchi, King Zhaoxiang of Qin Dynasty forced King Huiwen of Zhao Dynasty to beat the weak, and recorded it in the history of Qin Dynasty. The Minister of Zhao was indignant and asked the king of Qin Zhaoxiang to hit the fou. The latter was angry and refused. Lin Xiangru forced the king of Qin Zhaoxiang to hit the fou, which was also recorded in the history of Zhao. Qin Zhaoxiang became angry, but even so, the state of Qin did not dare to detain Zhao Huiwen.
Finally, the union of Mianchi made Lin Xiangru famous for thousands of years, and was reused by Zhao Huiwen. In contrast, the state of Qin had no worries about detaining the king of Chu Huai. The reasons why Qin dare to detain King Huai of Chu, but dare not detain King Huiwen of Zhao are as follows. On the one hand, this is because the state of Zhao is so powerful that the state of Qin dare not fight with Zhao easily.
The "union of Mianchi" took place in 279 B.C. and began about 307 B.C. That is to say, after Hu Fu's horse riding and shooting, Zhao's national strength was significantly enhanced. Not only was it eliminated, but also Lin Hu and Lou fan used their troops to the west, pushing Zhao's territory to Yunzhong (today's Tuoketuo County in Inner Mongolia), Jiuyuan (today's Baotou City in Inner Mongolia) and other places. Therefore, such a powerful state of Zhao naturally frightened the king of Zhaoxiang. Corresponding to this, the detention of the king of Chu Huai by the state of Qin took place in 299 BC.
Before that, Chu lost to Qin in the battle of Danyang, lost a lot of territory in Hanzhong, and lost to,,, Qin in the middle, thus losing a lot of troops. It is precisely because the state of Chu has been severely damaged in succession that King Zhaoxiang of Qin has the foundation to detain the king of Chu without worrying about the Revenge of the state of Chu. Because the state of Chu at that time, just in the stage of recuperation and restoration of national strength, is unable to fight back against the state of Qin. However, if the state of Qin detained Zhao Huiwen, the state of Zhao would naturally fight back against the state of Qin.
What's more, before detaining the king Huai of Chu, the state of Qin and the state of Chu had already met several times. For the strength of Chu state, Qin State has already known the root and the bottom. However, for Qin state, Zhao state is still an unknown opponent, that is, the two sides have not yet launched a large-scale campaign. For example, as you are familiar with, it happened in 269 B.C., 10 years after the union of Mianchi. Therefore, the Qin State has not fully grasped the strength of Zhao state. It is not a rational choice to detain Zhao Huiwen.
On the other hand, the different location of the alliance is one of the reasons for the different ending of King Huai of Chu and King Huiwen of Zhao. For King Huai of Chu, he and King Zhaoxiang of Qin met in Wuguan, which was the territory of Qin state at that time, that is to say, King Huai of Chu entered the tiger's mouth. As for the minchi alliance, at that time, minchi was the capital of South Korea. Although it was close to the Qin state, it was the territory of South Korea after all. For South Korea, sometimes to Qin, sometimes to Zhao and Wei, its position can not be determined, which is also the important reason why King Zhaoxiang didn't act recklessly.
At last, Lin Xiangru made preparations to lead the army to wait at the border between Zhao and South Korea. As long as king Zhaoxiang of Qin dared to detain King Huiwen of Zhao, Lian Po would immediately lead the elite Zhao army to rescue him. Therefore, in the union of Mianchi, Zhao had made sufficient preparations to help Zhao Huiwen leave. However, King Huai of Chu did not listen to zhaosui and Quyuan's advice and decided to go to Wuguan, which was detained by the state of Qin.
If the king of Chu Huai is also behind to prepare a large army to move out at any time, the king of Qin Zhaoxiang should carefully consider the decision to detain the king of Chu Huai, that is to say, the king of Chu Huai is not fully prepared, or there is no means of counter-control, which is undoubtedly one of the reasons why he was detained and finally died in a foreign country. Therefore, in my opinion, the experience of King Huai of Chu is worthy of sympathy, but his behavior still needs criticism and negation. Furthermore, King Huai of Chu was detained by the state of Qin, and King Huiwen of Zhao was able to retreat completely, which shows that in the Warring States period with the fierce war of annexation, any naive and pure luxury could not be tolerated. Only the iron flower of pragmatism can bloom in this cold season.
