Demystifying: Why did Chongzhen send someone to bury Wei Zhongxian's remains in secret?

Hello everyone, I'm an interesting history editor. Speaking of Emperor Chongzhen , everyone must have heard of it.

After the emperor Chongzhen was enthroned, he immediately set about erasing Wei Zhongxian . After Wei Zhongxian's death, he shattered his body and displayed his head. Chongzhen's behavior won praises from the people at that time.

However, in March of 17th year of Chongzhen, Beijing city was besieged by the peasant army. Before committing suicide, Chongzhen did something unexpected, secretly buried Wei Zhongxian's remains, and re-buried it at Xiangshan Biyun Temple, which was promising before Wei Zhongxian's life. Why does Chongzhen do this?

When faced with despair, people tend to re-examine their previous actions . The Emperor Chongzhen also reviewed the value of Wei Zhongxian at the time when the country was about to be destroyed, only to find that perhaps Wei Zhongxian was still at this time, and the Ming Dynasty would not have reached the situation it is today.

When Wei Zhongxian was in power, the emperor was Ming Yuzong Zhuyou School . This emperor is the famous carpenter emperor in the history of the Ming Dynasty. He loves carpenters better than patriotism. To be honest, the carpenter emperor really managed the country. The Ming Dynasty may die faster.

It was also because Zhu Youxiao liked to do carpentry, which created an opportunity for Wei Zhongxian to have authority. According to records, Wei Zhongxian reported on national events every time he was devoted to carpentry research at Zhu Youxiao. Every time at this time, Zhu Youxiao would be very tired, and said to Wei Zhongxian, I know, you can take care of it. As a result, Wei Zhongxian gradually mastered the politics of the court, which led to adultery and the spy.

Of course, from an orthodox standpoint, as a eunuch, Wei Zhongxian should not have been in politics. In addition, Wei Zhongxian himself covets power, murders loyalty, and has done a lot of bad things, so his evaluation in history is a traitor to a country that has troubled the country.

But putting aside orthodox remarks, only in terms of his personal ability, Wei Zhongxian has a good ability to deal with major events. Under the environment of constant party struggle in the late Ming Dynasty, it was important to maintain stability within the court of the Ming Dynasty. When Ming Youzong Zhu Youxiao said to Chongzhen when he was about to die, Wei Zhongxian was loyal and could do great things. Although the word "loyalty" is biased, the evaluation of "significant events" is very appropriate.

Specifically, the merits of Wei Zhongxian during his dictatorship are as follows:

First, the gain of Wei Zhongxian's party has greatly damaged the power of the Donglin party members who are longer than empty talks, and has allowed the Ming Dynasty to escape from the chaotic party disputes and stabilize domestic politics.

Secondly, Wei Zhongxian was good at employing people, and was appropriately deployed in the defense of the border. The North had an effective resistance to the Manchu dynasty. Therefore, during the period of Wei Zhongxian's dictatorship, Manqing did not take any advantage in the border.

Of course, the above two points cannot obliterate Wei Zhongxian's various acts of trespassing in order to disturb the political affairs of the country, "treacherous guilty concubine, framed Zhongliang, and grassy life" (Chongzheng language). However, after the Chongzhen Emperor eradicated Wei Zhongxian's party, due to his own doubts and other personal defects, he could not manage the country well. The re- opened Donglin one-party talked about the wrong country again, which led to renewed party struggles and constant internal friction in the court. Therefore, the ultimate result was that Chongzhen was extremely diligent in politics, but he was unable to stop the decline of the Ming Dynasty, which exacerbated the destruction of the Ming Dynasty.

In March 1644, Li Zicheng 's army broke through Beijing and faced with the overall situation of being unable to return to heaven, Chongzhen felt extremely desperate. At this time, Cao Huachun, the eunuch around him, said with a sigh, "If loyalty is there, current affairs will not come to an end." This made the Emperor Chongzhen suddenly think of what the Emperor Mingzong said when he was dying from school. The eradication of Wei Zhongxian's party led to today's state of persecution, so quietly let people converge Wei Zhongxian's remains.
