When Zhu Yuanzhang was buried, he set up a fascinated soul array. This statement has been preached for 600 years and is one of the most classic passages in Nanjing folk. There was a folk ballad in Nanjing: There are three monsters in Nanjing. The girl in Longtan is like an old lady, carrots are sold as side dishes, and thirteen city gates carry coffins. The strange burial legend that Zhu Yuan was buried at the time was actually used as a city symbol of Nanjing one.
Some people may think that it is nonsense, but it is not groundless. There are records in historical materials, such as the Ming Dynasty Zhu Guozhang s Huang Ming Dazhengji , such as the text, Zhu Yuanzhang s burial day, and cited, each door burial.
The burial of various gates is a kind of blind-eye method. One of the steps to implement secret burial is a typical feature of anti-theft tombs. I think so in my History of Chinese Tomb Robbers and other books, but after I thought about it, I found it very strange because everyone knows where Zhu Yuanzhang s tomb is? Who is this anti-theft tomb for? Combined with the fact that the concubine was buried after Zhu Yuanzhang s death that year, those coffins are likely to contain these strangled harem beauties!
Funeral was originally a funeral system before Qin and Han dynasties. The concubine next to the killer lived to serve as a waiter in the underworld. After the death of Emperor Qin Shihuang, Qin II s great-grandfather, the harem women who had not been clear before his death, were all executed, and it was resentful. After Liu Bang became emperor, he really abolished this inhuman vulgarity. However, the burials of several dynasties have disappeared, and when Zhu Yuanzhang became emperor, the system was restored and revived.
After the emperor emulated, the emperor Zhu surnamed Zhu. After the death of Ming Chengzu Zhu Xi, he was buried with more than 30 palace concubines, and even the princes had Tatars. For example, after the tomb of King Zhu Jing of Zhujing in Zhongxiang City, Hubei was stolen, local archaeologists discovered the Tatars during a rescue excavation. Six coffins were found in each of the left and right ear chambers. From the analysis of the remains, the coffins were not very old, and they were all females. Due to their young age, the bones had rotted, leaving only teeth and metal ornaments. These women should be the young and beautiful concubines before Zhu Dong s life. They could not die of illness at the same time. The only explanation was abnormal death-strangulation.
I said back to Zhu Yuanzhang. In the case of the crown prince Zhu Biao s early death, Zhu Yuan converted to the traditional etiquette. After Zhu Yuanzhang s death, Zhu Yunzhang inherited the throne, known as the King Wendi in history.
炆 Zhu Yunzhang obeyed the widow, and according to the ancient system, all the concubines in the harem who had not given birth to Zhu Yuanzhang before death were ordered to be sacrificed, and a number of maids died. As for how to kill these living scumbags, it has always been a mystery, and some are said to be poisoned by mercury. Some say it was strangled. However, according to Actual Record of King Sejong the Joseon Dynasty in Korea, it should be hanged.
The emperor (Ming Chengzu Zhu Xi) collapsed, and more than thirty people were buried in the palace. On the day of death, they were all dying in court, dying, and all raised the hall, crying to shock the hall. A wooden bed was placed on the hall, Standing on top of it, a lanyard was wrapped around it, and his head was in it, and he went to his bed, and all died with his neck.
From the above, we can see that the funeral concubine was allowed to stand on the small bed and the neck stretched into the rope cover. At that time, the new emperor Zhu Xi s eldest son Ming Renzong Zhu Gaochi also personally attended the scene to say goodbye to them, which was actually a prison sentence. Han and Cui, two beauties chosen by the North, were also executed.
Hanshi cried before he died, Mom, I m gone! Mom, I m gone! Before the words were finished, the eunuch removed the crib under her feet. The tragic state of it can not bear to think, even the emperor could not stand it. Later, Zhu Qizhen of Ming Yingzong decisively abolished the funeral system. Zhu Qizhen was captured by the Wa when he was emperor. This was a great shame, but the abolition of funerals gave him a good reputation and historical image . The History of the Ming Dynasty · Emperor Yingzong (Vol. 12) gave him the conclusion of the coffin, Stop the funeral of the concubine, then the matter of Shengde can be carried out by future generations.
There are no exact records of the number of people who were buried by Zhu Yuan. According to the History of Tong Shi written by Mao Qiling at the end of Ming Dynasty, The ancestor buried Fu Xiaoling with forty-six concubines. Among them, there were dozens of them.
Later, Zhu Yunzhang commended and rewarded the families of the concubines and concubines. Zhang Feng, Li Heng, Zhao Fu, Zhang Huan, Wang Bin, Sun Rui, Wang Bin, Yang Zhong, Lin Liang, Li Cheng, Zhang Min, Liu Zheng , etc. were all rewarded and awarded Thousand Households, Hundreds The role of household is hereditary. They were all for the father and brother of Zhu Yuanzhang s funeral palace, the so-called Chaotian Nuhu.
So, so many funeral men must be decorated with coffins, and then buried in Xiaoling. Moreover, the number of this funeral is quite close to the number of 13. Therefore, on the day of the burial, it was easy to understand that the gates of the 13 cities were carrying the coffin outward at the same time. At that time, the citizens of Nanjing must have seen the day when Zhu Yuanzhang was born, but because the court cleared the street, he could only look at it from a distance. Because there were many coffins, you passed it to me. Coffin has recently become a big monster in Nanjing.
According to the information of the Zhongshan Cemetery Administration, in March 1937, when a dam was built at Zixia Lake on the east side of the Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum, an ancient tomb of the Ming Dynasty was found. There is nothing, is it here for the funeral?
In 1976, at the foot of the mountain about 300 meters west of the Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum, another brick tomb was found, and a large number of carved gold jewelry were unearthed. There is a gold bracelet with the word craftsmanship bureau printed on the inside. This is an official workshop dedicated to royal jewelry. Since this was a restricted area in the Ming Dynasty, non-imperial relatives and relatives could not be buried, so the two tombs are likely to be funeral tombs.
He Yunzheng, a famous archeologist and director of the Institute of Nature and Culture of Nanjing University, conducted a special investigation when he was in charge of the Shang Yi of Ming Xiaoling. One hundred meters west of the mausoleum, in the present botanical garden; it is at the southwest corner outside the Xiaoling mausoleum wall, and the third one is to the right of the Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum, facing the Tomb (Prince Tomb) far away.
