I don't know if it's a Chinese reader. Let's take a look at it in detail~
There are two theories about the birthplace of the great poet Li Bai: the first is that Li Bai was born in Qinglian township of Sichuan Province in Gansu Province, and the other is that he was born in the broken leaf city of western regions before his family moved to Sichuan.
Then, according to the latter statement, Li Bai might be from the western regions? What? The Korean said that the Dragon Boat Festival is not ours, and now Li Bai is not either?
In fact, even if Li Bai was indeed born in broken leaves, he was 100% Chinese. Why do you say that? It goes back to the beginning.
We know that the deserts and grasslands in the north of China have been the gathering place of ethnic minorities and nomads since ancient times, and also the uneasiness of the rulers living in the Central Plains since the Qin Dynasty. Since Qin built the Great Wall to defend the Huns, until now, this hidden danger has always existed.
As soon as it was established, it began its own journey of conquering the old enemy of the western regions. In 630, the general of Xi'an succeeded in the western expedition, calmed down and established the state of xi'i. Ten years later, Li Shimin sent his general to pacify Gaochang and settle down after military discipline. In the next few years, Li Shimin never gave up the western expedition and pacified Yanzhe and other places one after another.
After more than 30 years of operation, in the first year of Yuanshuo, the Tang Dynasty had conquered 16 countries in the west of Tian, and set up government, prefecture and county. When Li Bai was born, he had been ruled by the Tang Dynasty for more than 40 years. Even if Li Bai was a person of broken leaves, he had already become a person of the Tang Dynasty, let alone his Chinese identity.
A story about the ruins of the city of broken leaves also proves this. During the reign of Empress Wu, some monks crazy advocated that Empress Wu was the reincarnation of Maitreya and the person chosen by heaven. They also compiled and made up four big copies of the great cloud Sutra, which was welcomed by Empress Wu's order to build the great cloud temple all over the country. Among them, one was built in the city of broken leaves at that time, which was clearly described in the book of classics and deeds of Du Li of Tang Dynasty. Time flies, time flies. Thousands of years later, people happened to find a ruins near the ruins of the broken leaf city. After excavation and restoration, they found two of the great Buddhas (seated statues of Sakyamuni and Shakyamuni Maitreya). After comparison, it was the ruins in the Dayun temple that Wu Zetian ordered to build nationwide. This evidence is enough to prove the Tang Dynasty's rule over broken leaves at that time.
