When Taizong was critically ill, Lu Duan went to visit the forbidden place, and saw that the crown prince was not by his side, and suspected that there was a change, so he wrote on the elephant wat he carried with him "Dajian (severely ill and died)", sent a close officer to immediately urge the prince to see the driver.
When Taizong died, the queen immediately sent the kingJi En summoned Lu Duan and planned to force Lu Duan to agree to make the King of Chu a king. Wang Jien was accustomed to doing this kind of stealing the beam and replacing the pillars.

Lu Duan unceremoniously pushed back: "The first emperor was already clear when he was here. The prince is the heir to the empire. Now he has just died, how can we defy the imperial edict?"
The queen is a woman's knowledge after all. I haven't seen Wang Jien's shadow for a long time. No one came up for her, and she had no idea for a while.
