Introduction: There is no emotion in this world that will last forever. After all, there are too many uncertainties around us. There are human skins in the Ming Dynasty , and even we ourselves cannot accurately control them. People around you will naturally have different feelings because of these things.
What I want to analyze with you today is the master-servant friendship. Although compared with family affection and love, the master-servant friendship is not intimate, but it is in the career. The master-servant friendship is unbreakable, but this friendship will also deteriorate over time, and become enemies because of power, such as Zhu Yuanzhang and Lan Yu, Yongzheng and Nian Gengyao.
1. A human skin reveals Zhu Yuanzhang’s brutality and bloodshed
Zhu Yuanzhang was a very suspicious person. After he took over the world, he dealt with all those old ministers one by one. Nian Gengyao had a heavy army in his hands, which was not tolerated by Yongzheng, although Yongzheng could sit on the throne without Nian Geng. Yao’s help, but under the imperial power, the so-called friendship is not worth mentioning. The so-called master-servant friendship is very reliable when you conquer the world, but when it comes to defending the world, it is inevitable that there will be estrangements. In order to sit back and relax, they will kill their loyal ministers without hesitation.
The palace of the King of Shu was found to be enshrining a human skin in golden clothes. Later, everyone knew that this human skin was the skin of Liang Guogong Lanyu. This human skin is Zhu Yuanzhang’s masterpiece, and this human skin is enough to show Zhu Yuanzhang’s cruelty. For Lan Yu, he never thought of why he would end up like this in the end.
2. Why was Lanyu rejected by Zhu Yuanzhang?
There used to be a lot of fertile fields in Lanyu’s house. Whenever the censors finished their inspections, Lanyu ordered people to beat him and drive him out of his own territory. In addition, Lan Yu also wanted to collude with the salt merchants to make money by selling illicit salt. Because of the bad deeds, Lanyu was impeached by many people. Later, Zhu Yuanzhang ordered Jinyiwei to conduct a thorough investigation, and Jinyiwei found out all kinds of evil deeds of Lanyu. Zhu Yuanzhang had long been dissatisfied with Lan Yu, but he never made it clear.
Lanyu was not greedy enough to swallow an elephant, so he buried the root of his troubles. Zhu Yuanzhang came forward to rectify him. In fact, the most important reason why Zhu Yuanzhang wanted to kill him was that Lanyu’s prestige in the army was too high. The higher the right to speak in the army, the more insecure Zhu Yuanzhang will be. Zhu Yuanzhang is notorious for being cautious and suspicious, and he can no longer see blue jade in his eyes.
Since Zhu Yuanzhang wanted to put Lanyu to death, how could Lanyu be alive? In 1393 AD, Zhu Yuanzhang ordered to investigate Lanyu, and all Lanyu’s family ransacked their homes. After that, all the people involved in the case headed by Lanyu were investigated and executed. Because of their involvement at that time, there were a total of More than 15,000 people.
3. The master-servant friendship between Zhu Yuanzhang’s Lanyu is chilling, and Lanyu kills himself because of his own strength
Lan Yu was even more miserable than them. He couldn’t even die completely. His skin was peeled off and he was toured across the country by Zhu Yuanzhang. Zhu Yuanzhang wanted to use this to shock the people of the world, and this was the end of his disobedience. Later, the king of Shu asked Zhu Yuanzhang to keep the skin of Lanyu in Chengdu. The king of Shu was Lanyu’s son-in-law, so the skin of Lanyu was enshrined in the palace of the king of Shu.
Seeing this, I believe everyone will complain that Zhu Yuanzhang’s methods are too bloody. In fact, Zhu Yuanzhang wanted to remind Lanyu through gentle suppression at first, but Lanyu is so happy that he doesn’t know how to restrain himself. Not only did he openly contradict Zhu Yuanzhang, but he was not convinced. Zhu Yuanzhang was extremely tolerant towards Lan Yu, and tried to persuade him in many different ways, but Lan Yu turned a blind eye, and instead became more aggressive. In the end, Zhu Yuanzhang couldn’t bear it anymore, so he killed all of them.
Summary: We take a deep breath when we think of this kind of skinning behavior. In the Ming Dynasty, there was such a cruel punishment method, which is really creepy. What do you want to say about Zhu Yuanzhang’s handling method? Return to Sohu, see more
