In the feudal hierarchical system, the princess is absolutely supreme, allowing people to reach the sky in one step, but the princesses of the Tang Dynasty are "worried about getting married." How to marry the princesses smoothly is a big problem that bothers the emperors. The key lies in their "famous reputation"-domineering, jealous, and arrogant. Tang Xuanzong is an old man who has 11 daughters. He has racked his brains to marry his daughters to scholar-officials.
Xuanzong's first method of marrying a girl-forced buying and selling
Tang Xuanzong There are two rigid indicators for the selection of a consort: First, the consort must be talented, that is, to read poems and books, and be full of economy; second, the consort must be born in a family, it can be a little short, but at least a family. So Tang Xuanzong found it. "Prime matchmaker" Bai Minzhong, who is Bai Juyi’s younger brother, Xuanzong is very simple: You are eating our Li family’s meal, and now my daughters can’t get married, you can do it yourself!
Bai Minzhong fainted after hearing it. The princesses had long been "famous" and wanted to marry well. How could this be good? In desperation, Lieutenant Bai Min pushed the champion Zheng Hao into the "fire pit". When he saw Zheng Hao's face with red teeth and white teeth and a talent, he straightenedZheng Hao, the top pick of the new section, was filled. However, Zheng Hao had a childhood sweetheart. He planned to marry Miss Lu Jia after he won the top prize. As a result, Bai Minzhong came out with a beating mandarin duck.
Zheng Hao was caught on the way home to get married. Bai Minzhong's letter was summoned back, and reluctantly married Princess Wanshou. With the new champion and the prince’s servant, Zheng Hao made his way.Nan Yin. However, Zheng Hao hated Bai Minzhong, the "big matchmaker", and confessed Bai Minzhong's blackness to Xuanzong when he was idle. Fortunately, Tang Xuanzong had a certain understanding of Princess Wanshou, and after guessing the reason for Zheng Hao’s dissatisfaction with Bai Minzhong, the "big matchmaker" was spared.
Xuanzong's Second Method of Marrying Daughters-Public Marriage Law
Princess Wanshou finally got married, but Ma Zhenghao still hated the "big matchmaker" Bai Minzhong and Yongfu How should the princess marry? In desperation, Tang Xuanzong had to choose to open the marriage proposal: many royal princesses were waiting to be married, all of them beautiful, gentle and virtuous, and those who married the princesses were very prosperous. In order to marry the unwary daughters, Tang Xuanzong also spared his old face and promoted himself.
Yu Cong was a scholar, but his family There are many brothers, and they are not as good as they are, and they have some intentions. Zheng Hao, who is a good friend of Yu Cong, thinks that happiness alone is not as good as the others, so he keeps urging Yu Cong to apply for him: You look at your talents. Reading poetry and books, but how bad is it now? I don’t know how good the opportunity is. In fact, the cohort is also quite good, look at me now...Forget it, don’t look at me, you hurry up and apply for the cohort!
Yu Cong is indeed very good, he is very handsome and talented. Tang Xuanzong looked at him, what a good man, this couldn't let him run away. So he hurriedly appointed Cong as the candidate for the horse, so that he would soon marry Princess Yongfu. Yu Cong returned home with anxiety and waited to face the princess and arrogant princess. As a result, Princess Yongfu did not marry, not because she did not marry herself, but Xuanzong refused to let her marry. So why did Xuanzong destroy the marriage that was finally fooled?
Xuanzong's third method of marrying a girl-the method of returning goods to choose the best
This is inseparable from the performance of Princess Yongfu at the dinner party. When having dinner with her father , Princess Yongfu broke a bowl and chopsticks because of a small incident. Tang Xuanzong was very upset. Father, I put aside my face and asked for marriage publicly. Isn't your temper trying to break my sign? How can I marry my daughter well in the future??
So Tang Xuanzong severely rebuked Princess Yongfu "In the presence of your father, you dare to smash bowls and chopsticks. How can you serve your in-laws? How can you be the wife of a scholar-official with such a temperament?"? Tang Xuanzong was angry and cancelled Princess Yongfu's wedding and changed her sister, Princess Guangde.
Yu Cong, who is worried, is undoubtedly lucky. "Good brother" Zheng Hao did not "lie to himself". The princess performed really well. The princess Guangde respects her in-laws and is sympathetic to her husband, which is extremely rare among the princesses of the past. Princess Guangde does not think that she is superior to others, because she respects her elders, is courteous and courteous, and has won unanimous praise from her family.
After the death of Tang Xuanzong, Tang Yizong succeeded, and Wei Baoheng framed many people, including Yu Cong. Princess Guangde cried and found her elder brother Tang Yizong, who wanted to go into exile with her husband Yu Cong. In order to protect the safety of her husband Yu Cong, Princess Guangde often walked in front of him and tied her belt to her wrist to protect him every step of the way. Even in the high-risk section of the assassination, Princess Guangde took the initiative to change into Yu Cong’s clothes, and her virtuous ShudeIt is so admirable and distressed.
After Tang Xizong succeeded to the throne, Yu Cong and Princess Guangde returned to Chang'an, but unfortunately, the Huang Chao army quickly conquered Tang Capital. The ministers and dignitaries fled for refuge one after another. Yu Cong was already grey-haired at this time, so he did not choose to escape. Sergeant Huang Chao found Yu Cong and forced him to surrender to an official position. Yu Cong said that he was old and sick and had no intention of thief. Huang Chao's soldiers became angry and killed Yu Cong with a scimitar.
Seeing her husband's death, Princess Guangde cried and shouted: "I am the princess of Datang, you should kill me too. The grandfather is dead, and I don’t want to live alone"! The soldiers in Huang Chao were at a loss and did not know what to do. Princess Guangde returned to the house and killed herself with a white silk.
Yu Cong is the lucky one among the horses, and Princess Guangde is the outstanding one among the princesses of the past. Her virtuous, steadfast, unyielding, and gentle, perfectly portrayed a noble classical female image This is extremely rare among the princesses of the Tang Dynasty. Tang Xuanzong's painstaking efforts eventually led to an extraordinary marriage.
