Demystifying the mystery of the ancient concubine's quilt

Do you really know the ancient concubine quilt? The interesting historical editor will provide you with detailed related content.

In ancient China, there were thousands of women around the emperors of all dynasties, from the queen to the concubine to the palace maid. However, even if the emperor is the master of a country, he will have whatever he wants, and he must obey many rules in the palace. For example, when the ancient concubines were spoiled by the emperor, they could not go to the emperor without permission, but had to drill into the bed from their feet. Why do you do this? The reason is actually very simple.

There are different rules in the palaces of different dynasties, and in most ancient dynasties, the emperor's favor of concubines also went through a variety of procedures. For example, during the Tang Dynasty, the concubines were divided into queens, wives, nine concubines, women of the 27th generation, and 81 imperial wives. And the order of the concubines was not determined by the emperor's preferences, but by the moon's gloomy days. In the first 15 days, the moon gradually became full from lack, so the concubines from lower statuses took turns to concubines with higher status. The next 15 days, the moon went from full to lack, and the status of the women who came to accompany them was also high to low.

Therefore, in order to ensure that the rain and dew are evenly spread, the lower-level concubines are divided into groups of nine, while the higher-level concubines can enjoy the pampering exclusively. And on the 15th and 16th of each month, the two roundest days of the moon must be personally served by the queen. This method may be fair to the concubine, but not so friendly to the emperor. After all, the emperor had to deal with political affairs during the day, and it was not peaceful at night. It can be said that it was very hard.

Compared with the system of the Tang Dynasty, the "green head" system of the Qing Dynasty can be said to be more humane. During the Qing Dynasty, before the emperor ate dinner, the eunuch in the tribute room placed a green card for the concubine who could accompany him on that day, and placed it on a large silver plate. When the emperor finished dinner, the eunuch knelt before the emperor and presented the plate. If the emperor did not plan to accompany him, he would let the eunuch retreat. If the emperor had an intended concubine, he would flip its brand.

The role of the eunuch was crucial during the emperor's selection of concubines. In many cases, the emperor's feelings towards the concubines were similar. At this time, if the eunuch said something good about the concubine, the emperor would pay special attention to the concubine, which would increase the chance of the concubine being favored. Therefore, many concubines will give the eunuch on duty some benefits and let them say something good for themselves.

When the concubine was selected, she was taken away by the specially responsible palace maid and eunuch to bathe and groom, and then wrapped in a quilt and carried to the emperor. At this time, too, the concubines could only enter from the feet of the emperor, not directly. This is mainly to protect the safety of the emperor. After all, in the palace, the emperor's safety is the most important. The concubines did not have any right to refute this. After all, for the women of the time, it was still the greatest honor to be loved by the emperor, which made people feel sad.
