Why are some palace maids called "aunts"? Next, Xiaobian will bring the historical truth. Let's have a look!
Those slightly lighter palaces are called aunts. For example, in the legend, aunt Cui Jinxi is the most helpful to Zhen Huan.
What kind of maids would be called aunts? Is Auntie a title?
In the book, it is usually the palace maid who is in charge of affairs to be called aunt.
But in fact, according to the imperial system, the palace maids usually leave the palace from the age of four or five to seventeen or eighteen, which is just the right time to marry. The new palace maids are taught by these palace maids, which is equivalent to leaving and handing over. The maids in charge of teaching the new maids are called aunts.
而写的《·邵女》中也有这一说法：“﹝媪﹞登门，故与 邵 妻絮语，睹女，惊赞曰：‘好个美姑姑!。
"Shao Nu" also has this saying: "when I came to the door, I chatted with Shao's wife, and saw her, I was surprised and praised," what a beautiful aunt! "!.
In fact, this is a kind of honorific expression for unmarried women.
Although the aunt in the palace is not the title of any position, it is just the title of the unmarried maids who are old and teach the little maids, but these aunts have great rights. They can arrange the work of the following maids. If the maids do something wrong, the aunt can also punish them. If any maid offends her aunt accidentally, she may be sent to work as a factotum. We can say that Cui Jinxi is the most important person around Zhen Huan. Zhen Huan will discuss everything with her. The girls in the palace of Zhen Huan have to listen to Jin Xi's arrangement. Even huanbi has to give up three points.
