Hougong draft girls have always been an important way of accepting concubines. They are all Manchurian women who are selected once every three years. Han can't be selected. This is the name of the three thousand beauties in the harem. Among the "three thousand beauties", there are not only the empress and Empress of the emperor, but also the maid of the harem. So, how did these beauties choose?
First of all, we need to strictly examine the flag's ownership and age. Those who are not in the flag want to participate in the draft, and those who are in the flag want to escape the draft, too. According to the court, all middle-aged women aged 14 to 16 in the official's family of the Eight Banners must participate in the selection of the once-in-three-year xiunv, and women over the age of 17 will no longer participate. Five years (1740) further stipulates that if a woman fails to participate in the reading and selection for various reasons within the prescribed period of time, she will still participate in the reading and selection for the next term. Women who have not been read and selected are not allowed to marry without permission even when they are 20 years old. Order "the Ministry of the household passes the eight banners, and all the beauties who have not been selected shall not marry in advance." According to the Qing palace archives, by the end of the Qing Dynasty, the youngest female candidates were 11 years old and the oldest could be 20 years old. The age requirement for girls is only the most basic condition, but not the main one. Appearance and character are the two main criteria of evaluation. Appearance refers to physiological conditions, while character is subjective.
Usually, the emperor is very concerned about the physiological conditions of the concubine. The imperial palaces of the Qing Dynasty, from the empress to the maids, were all selected from the women of the flag people. Qiren is unique to the Qing Dynasty. Therefore, the system of selecting the harem from the women of Qi people was unique to the Qing Dynasty. The elected ladies painted under the Shenwu gate, first managed by the head of the household department, and then introduced into the palace. Usually there are five or six people in a row, chosen by the emperor. Some of the women who were elected were concubines of the emperor, some were assigned to princes, princes, princes and grandchildren, and others were in court.
There are two open standards of the Qing Royal family, one is moral character, the other is family. In Qing Dynasty, the titles of empresses, concubines and concubines often include Kuan Ren, Xiao Ci, Wen Gong, Shu Shen, "birth of famous men", "Xiang Zhong Hua valve" and so on. Among them, the door has a more important role. As we all know, the empress of Emperor Guangxu has a strange and ugly appearance, but she is the niece of the empress dowager, so she becomes the empress. When Emperor Guangxu regarded her as a confidant, her father was the servant Chang Xu, her grandfather was Yutai, who was once the governor, her uncle was General Chang Shan of Guangzhou, Chang Shan was GUI Liang's son-in-law, and Yi Xin's wife. Therefore, he and his sisters were both selected as Zhen and Jin's concubines.
On the third day of February, the eleventh year, Fang Chuanzhi, a minister of honor, made a decree that the daughter of the Duke was granted the title of concubine, the daughter of the general was granted the title of concubine, the daughter of the magistrate was granted the title of concubine, and the daughter of yuanwailang was granted the title of concubine. The imperial edict handed down by this honoring service room also shows the family background and family number of the lady. It is not only related to whether she is selected, but also to her position in the palace after being selected. Therefore, the Qinggong show girl is not in the beauty pageant, but in the "fight dad.".
