You must have heard the story of "Nine Sons Taking the Crown", which is the "Game of Thrones" performed by the sons of the Kangxi Emperor who are vying for the throne. Hey, don't think this is corny history, this is a more exciting drama than Game of Thrones!
Let's first get to know the main actors of this big drama. Needless to say, Crown Prince Yinren is the heir to the throne. But the eldest prince Yin Yu, although he is the eldest son, his talent is so mediocre that people want to sleep. The third prince Yin Zhi was a learned and talented scholar, and the Kangxi Emperor praised him, but he was too clean and high, and he really couldn't play politics in this matter.
The fourth prince, Yin Yu, seems not interested in the position of power, but in fact he has a set of things in his stomach. He knows how to use his strength to let others work for him. The Eighth Prince Yinhe's popularity was too good, but he was too gentle and hesitant politically. Our ninth prince Yin Yu is extremely smart, but his personality is stubborn like a cow, and he refuses to listen to anyone's words. Although the tenth prince Yin was young, he was so smart that even the Kangxi Emperor praised him. The thirteenth prince Yinxiang is a martial arts master, and he is not interested in politics at all, but he is dedicated to serving the emperor. There is also the fourteenth prince Yinhe, although the little guy is young, his ambition is not small, and he wants to be the emperor!
These princes made a fuss, and the Kangxi Emperor saw it in his eyes, and he felt sad in his heart. At this moment, the fourth prince Yin Yu began to show his talent, grasping the Kangxi Emperor's heart tightly. This is really called a near-water building platform to get the moon first!
In order to curry favor with the Kangxi Emperor's favored concubine, Yin Yu put in a lot of effort. With the help of Concubine De, the Kangxi Emperor finally made up his mind to depose the crown prince Yinren and install the fourth prince Yinhe as the crown prince! As soon as this news came out, it the other princes. Especially the Eighth Prince Yin Yu, he is a widely loved master, how can he be willing? So he joined forces with other princes and planned to give Yin Yu a dismount. It's a pity that their plans were all known by Yin Xu. Yin Yu is worthy of being a master! He acted quickly to weaken their power to the ground. As soon as the ninth prince Yin Yu saw that the big thing was not good, he sneaked out of the capital by himself and wandered around.
In this struggle for the nine sons, the fourth prince Yin Yu was the final winner. After he ascended the throne, he changed the year name to "Yongzheng", and he is the Yongzheng Emperor we know!
During the reign of the Yongzheng Emperor, he carried out many reform policies and made the rule of the Qing Dynasty stable. Those princes who had fought against him were overwhelmed by him, really "people floating in the rivers and lakes, how can they not be knifed"! A new chapter in history has begun!
We can see through the scene of the nine sons seizing the concubine: there is a power struggle everywhere, and people can do anything in order to fight for power. And the real winners are often those who know how to adapt to the times, have strategy and determination. The story of the Nine Sons teaches us a lesson: when faced with similar challenges, we have to learn to deal with and win!
