How many women are in Hong Xiuquan's harem? What did Hong Xiuquan do after taking Nanjing?

Today, the interesting history editor brought you what Hong Xiuquan did after capturing Nanjing? Interested readers can follow the editor to take a look.

In the history textbook, the significance of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom Movement is self-evident . It promoted the collapse of the feudal society and prevented the process of Chinese colonization. Scholars once elevated Hong Xiuquan to the height of "the pioneer of the peasant uprising" Even Mr. Sun Yat-sen during the Republic of China was willing to be "Hong Xiuquan No. 2". It can be seen that the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom Movement had a profound impact on future generations.

Although the main cause of the failure of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom Movement was the joint slaughter of the Western powers and the Manchu dynasty, the serious mistakes committed by Hong Xiuquan cannot be ignored.

1. After laying down Nanjing, Hong Xiuquan gradually became feudal. The ease of life made him no longer the respected " King of Heaven ", but gradually fell into a centralized ruler who valued the concept of hierarchy and immersed himself in pleasure. From the literature, we can see that Hong Xiuquan rarely left his royal palace during this period, drawing a line with the masses and officers.

We know that the leader's behavior played a decisive role in the transformation of a revolutionary regime into the feudal dynasty . Since Hong Xiuquan's thought has undergone a qualitative change, this change in thought will quickly spread to the entire Tianjing in a short period of time. Later, Hong Xiuquan's behavior became more like a feudal unconscious king. The fundamental reason for the outbreak of contradictions within the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom is this change in thinking.

Second, in order to consolidate his centralized rule and prevent power from falling into the hands of foreign names, Hong Xiuquan's employment line has also undergone great changes. From the beginning of "existence only", to the later "employment only," Hong Xiuquan increasingly rejected other kings with different surnames. Such a unique idea of the authoritarians gradually corrupted the politics of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom in the later period and laid a fatal hidden danger for the development of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom.

3. In his later years, Hong Xiuquan became more and more feudal and conservative in his thoughts. He was unable to extricate himself in the imaginary heaven, and went further and further on the road of religious superstition. The rivers and mountains laid by Hong Xiuquan experienced ups and downs during this period, but also occupied half of the mountains and rivers during the heyday. In the history of our country, there are countless short-lived dynasties like this, and their failure process is exactly the same.

The reason is not that the soldiers refused to throw their heads on the regime, but that the leaders of these regimes were too selfish. On the eve of the uprising, Hong Xiuquan also used the banner of "equality between the government and the people, equality between men and women" in order to win the hearts of the people. However, all these died out as the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom entered Nanjing. After coming to Anlechang, Hong Xiuquan and others quickly revealed their selfish, superstitious, and feudal side. For the civilians, especially women, Hong Xiuquan regarded them as slaves and played at will.

For these reasons, in June 1864, Hong Xiuquan died, and after the succession of the young King Wang Hong Tianguifu , until July 19, 1864, the Xiang Army smashed the city wall near Tianjingmen of Tianjing by more than 10 feet, swarming into the city, and in other directions The army also entered by fate. The Taiping Army in the city either died in battle or self-immolated, and none of them descended ... the fall of Tianjing marked the complete failure of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom peasant war. However, the hundreds of thousands of Taiping troops scattered on various battlefields in the north and south of the Yangtze River still bravely and stubbornly resisted the Qing's attack. Even so, it was difficult to reverse the decline of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom.

So how many women are there in Hong Xiuquan's harem?

After the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom Movement, someone wrote a "Jiangnan Spring Dream Notes", which said that Hong Xiuquan had more than a thousand names in the harem, ranging from queens, lovers, hippies, wonderful girls, maids to maids. Yuan Yuan. Afterwards, in the face of so many beauties, how did Hong Xiuquan manage it, even though he has three heads and six arms , facing thousands of beauties is also incompetent. Moreover, with so many wives and concubines, Hong Xiuquan couldn't remember them one by one, so he simply numbered his wives one by one, and remembered the beauty by the number instead of the name of the beauty. Every time he wanted to summon the beauty, Hong Xiuquan Just call the number represented by the beauty, and then the 67th wife and 74th wife have such funny names.

The more than a thousand women were only qualified to share the same bed with Heavenly King.

In other words, there is no eunuch in the Heavenly Mansion, and all the people who serve the Heavenly King are "female officials." Roughly calculated, there were a total of 1,200 female officials in the Heavenly Mansion.

To sum up, there are more than 2,300 women in Hong Xiuquan's harem. These people are Hong Xiuquan's imprisonment.

Hong Xiu's standard for selecting women is extremely high:

First, there must be a good looks, no doubt. Throughout the ages, women who have been able to enter the harem of the feudal ruler are all beautiful.

Secondly, Hong Xiuquan's women must be famous, because only girls who have been regarded as the pearl of their palms since their childhood have soft skin and enchanting figures.

In the end, the concubines and female officials in Hong Xiuquan's house were all complete.

We know that all the emperors of the past dynasties made such a request in the election, and asked relevant people to verify the chastity of the maid. However, Hong Xiuquan's method of verifying whether a woman is a virgin is very perverted. After the woman enters the palace, Hong Xiuquan will personally check the girl's body. If the girl is a complete body, she will be included in the harem. If the girl is not a complete body, Hong Xiuquan will be demoted to slavery, and even soon after the kill.

As an uprising advertised as "equality", Hong Xiuquan hid in the deep palace and enjoyed the service of 2,300 beautiful women, lingering in the gentle village all day long. This practice of Hong Xiuquan will inevitably make Yang Xiuqing and others jealous. Therefore, the outbreak of civil unrest in the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom is inevitable. Although Hong Xiu cleverly applied Shi Lijian to calm down the civil strife, the Taiping Army had lost vitality in this infighting.

From the details of Hong Xiuquan's selection of women, we can see that although this man preached "public ownership", he took the lead in violating this concept. In the final analysis, Hong Xiuquan is no different from the uprisings who have achieved a little success and are proud of themselves. Therefore, his end is naturally undoubted. Obviously, Hong Xiuquan's uprising movement is fundamentally different from revolutionaries.

Therefore, no matter how "advanced" Hong Xiuquan's ideas are, this person should not be pushed to the heights of the uprising pioneers by scholars of the future.
