I don't know yet: the reader of Princess Xiangfei, the following editor will give you a detailed introduction, and then read on~
When it comes to the legendary princess, everyone has heard about her.
During the Qianlong period, there were 42 concubines in the imperial palace. Most of these women were the daughters of high officials and nobles. When they were only 13 or 14 years old, they entered the imperial palace through concubines' selection. There are also some women whose origins are very unusual. They are "gifts" from surrounding tribes and countries. One of the most famous is "Xiangfei", also known as "Rongfei" in the history of the Qing Dynasty. The real one was once imprisoned by her ex husband, but at the age of 27, she was taken back to the Imperial Palace by Qianlong scenery and accepted as a favorite princess.
In 1734, Rongfei was born in the he Zhuo family in Xinjiang, so she was also called "he Zhuo" by later generations. Her father was the local aristocratic leader. She has been very beautiful since she was a child. She became a local beauty before she was an adult. Later, she was betrothed by her family to Huo Ji (that is, "Xiao He Zhuo Mu"), but her married life was endless. With the expansion of his power, Huo Jizhan and his elder brother gradually came up with the idea of splitting the tribes, which aroused the dissatisfaction of other nobles and the attention of the Qing government.
In the 25th year of Qianlong's reign, the emperor ordered that soldiers should be sent to pacify the Zhuo Mu rebellion. In the process, Zhuo family and Zhuo family actively helped the Qing army to pacify the rebellion. As a result, Rong Fei was imprisoned and treated severely by her husband. Later, she was even abandoned by her husband. After the rebellion was pacified, the Zhuo family was given preferential treatment. They were not only sent to the capital to live in, but also honored the elder brother of Rong Fei as "first class Taiji". In order to show his loyalty and gratitude, the elder brother of Rong Fei presented her to the emperor.
It is worth noting that at this time, Rong Fei was 27 years old. In the history of Qing Dynasty, 13-year-old girls were allowed to enter the palace to participate in the draft, so most of the concubines in the harem also served the emperor when they were in their teens, while the 27-year-old Rongfei seemed to be very old at that time, and she was still second married. However, the emperor still welcomed her back to the palace, and was extremely fond of her. On the one hand, it was to win over the tribe, and on the other hand, it can be seen that Rongfei was unusual.
And her real uniqueness was only fully reflected after entering the palace. Just when she entered the palace, there was a sign of auspiciousness in the Palace - the litchi tree, which the emperor specially ordered to be transplanted from the south to the palace, produced more than 200 fruits in a short time. Both the emperor and the emperor thought that she was a blessed person, so they were very happy and ordered her to be honored as "he noble". Only three years later, the emperor granted her the title of "allow concubines" and her brother was also granted the title of "auxiliary Duke".
In the 30 years of Qianlong's reign, the emperor began his fourth large-scale Southern tour, accompanied by many concubines and ministers. Along the way, the emperor always paid special attention to her. Considering her taste, the emperor specially gave more than 80 kinds of dishes with Xinjiang characteristics to avoid her discomfort due to her long journey.
Since then, she has been loved by the emperor with her outstanding appearance and exotic customs. In the 33rd year of Qianlong's reign, the emperor once again ordered her to be "Rong Fei" and awarded her many precious clothes and jewelry. Since she entered the palace, the emperor worried that she would miss her hometown too much, so he took special care of her from many aspects, including clothes, food, housing and transportation. He not only chartered her to wear her national clothes in the palace, but also specially invited local chefs to take charge of her three meals a day. It can be seen how much the emperor loved her.
Three years later, Emperor Qianlong took six concubines to patrol the East, and she was in the same team. In the 40 years of Qianlong's reign, the two queens in the Imperial Palace and the imperial concubines who took charge of the six imperial palaces later died one after another. At this time, Rongfei had an important position in the imperial palace. In the Royal Palace Banquet, Princess Rong first occupied the position of the first table in the west, and then was promoted to the second seat in the East. At this time, she was 48 years old, and reached the top of her position and honor in her life. In the 53rd year of Qianlong's reign, Rong Fei died at the age of 55.
The biggest mystery about Rong Fei is whether she was born with a strange fragrance. In fact, there were related rumors as early as the Guangxu period, but they only existed in some novels and wild history at that time. Later, in 1914, the introduction of "Xiangfei" was written on a picture of women's military makeup on display, which aroused great interest in her. However, to this day, whether she really has "exotic fragrance" or not has a real conclusion, maybe this is just a kind of imagination and yearning for her.
