Not only a mystery, but also a legend. Among the emperors in Chinese history, Yongzheng's popularity, if not in the top three, should also be in the forefront. The reason why Yongzheng is famous is because of the folk rumors. In this section, we select and record some anecdotes about Yongzheng's succession.
In the first volume of the Grand View of wild history, there is a wild history story that alludes to Yong Zheng's brother tu. Gu recorded as follows. It's said that in Yongzheng's reign, a scholar in Tongcheng gave a dignified tutor in the palace, and the guests and the host got on well with each other. After several years, the scholar said to the eunuch one day that he wanted to go into the palace and have a long experience. The eunuch also had a certain position in the palace. After hearing this, he agreed. Before long, the eunuch prepared the waist token and the clothes and hats for the people in the inner court, intending to let the scholar enter under the pretext of visiting.
Before entering, the eunuch told the scholar: "when you will enter the noon gate later, the guard at the gate may catch people off guard and suddenly scream loudly. If you don't often go in, you will often panic.". At this time, if you are scared, you will often be severely examined by those people. If you make a wrong answer, you may lose your life. In the palace, every time they enter a door, the guards will make a surprise attack like this, but the more inside they go, the less defensive they are. Maybe these people who want to come in have already passed several thresholds. They must often go into the palace, and their vigilance is much smaller. After the scholar only agreed, they went into the palace. The eunuch took the scholar to the palace garden to visit Haosheng.
After swimming for a while, they went back and prepared to leave the palace. When we got to the middle, there was a pavilion on the side of the road. There was a bed collapse in the pavilion. The eunuch said that this was the place where the emperor often rested. While there was no one, we also sat here for a while. However, we could only rest for a while, just in case the emperor suddenly came, there would be no place to hide.
Just as they were talking, they suddenly heard a noise, as if a group of people were coming. The eunuch was shocked and said, "no, it seems that the emperor is coming. What can I do?" they were in a hurry, so the eunuch had to let the scholar hide in the belly of the bed. The scholar's face was white with fright. He could only hide in the panic. Fortunately, the bed was not very close. He could breathe in it, and could see the movement outside from the crack of the board.
After a while, Yong Zheng came in with some people in a fierce way. When he came in, Yongzheng sat cross legged on the bed, and the eunuch rushed to wait on him. Later, several powerful men led a man, who had been tortured and had no color on his face, but he could still be seen as a prince and a grandson. Yongzheng ordered him to kneel, but the man refused to kneel and said, "don't you read a little bit about brotherhood? He persecuted his younger brother after becoming emperor, but he didn't die. You plot to win the throne, design and frame the emperor. You are afraid that the brothers will not agree with you. If you want to kill us all, you will not be afraid of people's opinions. Do historians record you? "
Yong Zheng is furious. He orders the eunuch to hold his hand and feet. Then he takes out a medicine bottle from his arms. The medicine in it is pink like snow. He forces the man to swallow it with a grin. If the man doesn't, he forces the eunuch to open his mouth and pour it down. Then, Yongzheng ordered a man to find a big urn, kill the man and throw him in, then pour powder into it, only to hear the creak in the urn, and a smell spread. The scholar witnessed the whole process and was scared to sweat. The whole scene was silent and the needle could buzz when it fell down.
The faces of all the people were white, but Yongzheng was content to sit on the edge of the Kang proudly. He didn't care about it at all. He tasted tea slowly. After about ten minutes, Yongzheng stretched himself and asked someone to open the big urn to check it. After reading it, Lishi closed his mouth and said, "it's melted." Yongzheng listened and went over to check with his nose covered. Lishi tilted the urn slightly, only to see that it was full of purple and black smelly water. After Yongzheng saw it, he said angrily, "scold me. Can you still scold me? Come on, pour this urn of smelly water into Yugou and let him stay with the sewage." After hearing this, Lishi lifted the urn and went out. Yongzheng, with a sneer, got up and left.
After the eunuch sent him back, he quickly let the scholar out of the bed and asked him, "have you seen what happened today?" the scholar's teeth rattled and said, "have you seen it." The eunuch's face sank: "if there is a little leak about today's affairs, you and I will die without a burial place. I'm on duty today. Now I'll send you out as soon as possible. Let's talk about something tomorrow. " At this time, the scholar would like to fly out of this place with wings, and then he followed the eunuch out of the palace with fear, feeling like a new life. After going back, the scholar thought that he was ok, so he secretly recorded all the things he saw just now, hid them in his ragged cotton padded clothes, and waited anxiously for the eunuch to come back, sleepless all night.
The next day, when the eunuch came back, his face turned pale. He said to the scholar, "Sir, it's really a disaster. I was on duty yesterday, and I only hope the emperor would not ask, or I don't know, so I'm safe. Unexpectedly, just after the dinner last night, the emperor suddenly asked, "who is in the daytime Kang? You are so bold!" I quickly knelt down to meet him, and said that he was my relative, just wanted to come in and have a look. The emperor was furious and ordered to kill him. I really had no way. All I can do is to send your spiritual seat back to your hometown after your death. There will be palace people coming to check later. Sir, please take care of it as soon as possible. " When the scholar heard this, he cried, "what else can I do? It seems that I can only be a ghost of a foreign land!" the eunuch then took out a pill and asked the scholar to take it. After the death of the book, the eunuch pretended that he died of illness and sent his remains back to his hometown.
A few months later, the scholar's family checked the relics and found his suicide note in the broken cotton padded jacket. Only then did they know the real cause of the death of the scholar. However, this matter is related to the forbidden secrets of the palace. If it is leaked, it may lead to a lot of copying and beheading. Therefore, they have been afraid to be inhuman.
Yongzheng's spy rule was also famous in the Qing Dynasty. After he won the throne, he set up secret detective teams in various provinces to rule the spy, and there was no room for him. Because the spy is all over the place, the officials and people under his control are all under surveillance. Some officials are often punished for their dereliction of duty. If the common people want to speak ill of the court, they will often be punished, which makes the court stand in awe. No one dares to cheat Yongzheng. Officials often talk about it secretly together. These spies are so powerful that they are probably guys flying on the wall. Otherwise, how could they know everything?
"Nanting notes" Volume 1 says that the new governor of a province has a lot of political voice. One day after work, he played solitaire with his wife and his wife's wife and their family members at home. After two rounds of playing, he suddenly found that one of the six cards was missing. He couldn't find it. He had no choice but to give up. Before long, the imperial court ordered a governor to come to Beijing immediately, so he immediately rushed to Beijing to see Yongzheng. Yongzheng didn't have a big deal, but he asked a few questions, and then let him go back to do his best to keep one side safe. Just as a governor was about to go out after kowtowing, Yongzheng suddenly called him back, and then slowly took something out of his arms. He laughed and said, "I almost forgot that it's your family's thing. Now give it back to you." A certain governor looked at it intently. He was shocked and lost color. He was sweating. What Yongzheng gave him was the six cards lost in playing cards the other day!
