The Chinese emperor in Chinese painting more than 600 years ago, the descendants more than 600 years later have something to tell the world?

As a grassroots-born emperor, Ming Taizu Zhu Yuanzhang comes with its own topic, but whatever people find interesting, pressed on Zhu Yuanzhang, almost all without any sense of incongruity.

For example, he met a magical melon farmer, for example, he smiled back at the woman who fed the pigs, and then he got a talented girl from Jiangnan who did not cherish, and so on and so forth.

But you can't blame Zhu Yuanzhang for having a lot of scandals on him, who made him a legend in his own right, and a legend that one has to admire.

But even as legendary as he was, he was still a living, breathing human being, and the complexity of his personal experiences made him an extremely complex, even conflicted emperor at heart.

On the one hand he is murderous, on the other hand he is merciful.

Under Zhu Yuanzhang as an official, is a very difficult thing, single say those who followed him to fight the world's meritorious officials, almost all by Zhu Yuanzhang clean up once, even has been 76 years old Li Shanchang, he did not net side.

But in Zhu Yuanzhang's men as a commoner is good, he deeply investigate the hardships of the people, but also in many places set up the injustice drum, as long as the oppression of officials, ring the injustice drum, will have the opportunity to get the injustice snow.

Throughout the hundreds of emperors in Chinese history, it is really difficult to find a second Zhu Yuanzhang who is such a maverick.

It is because of Zhu Yuanzhang's multifaceted nature, so that future generations of his evaluation is also polarized, some say he was wise and wise, while others feel that he was murderous and tyrannical.

According to these two very different evaluation, Zhu Yuanzhang left in later generations of portraits, there are two contrasting images, one portrait of wise and wise, the other is ugly.

So what does Zhu Yuanzhang really look like?

Historically is a mystery, after all, at that time there is no camera, can not take pictures for him, but in Henan had found Zhu Yuanzhang's real portrait, Zhu family descendants from generation to generation for more than 600 years, if this portrait is true, we will be able to find the original Zhu Yuanzhang look really not ugly.

Heaven will give a great responsibility to the people

Zhu Yuanzhang in the late Yuan Dynasty was just a doll from a poor family, and his social status was naturally low to the dust. At that time, the Yuan Dynasty had a system of four classes of people, and Zhu Yuanzhang was among the lowest southerners.

At that time, there was no social status, and even a proper name was not worth having. For a very early period of time, Zhu Yuanzhang only had the name Zhu Chongba.

Perhaps you think the name is also quite literary, in fact, this is just a casual name, such as their family, someone named Zhu Wu Si, someone named Zhu Liuyi, generally are the date of birth as a name, when it is really simple and hassle-free.

Zhu Yuanzhang often starved and frozen when he was small, to the landlord's family cattle is his daily compulsory course, later natural disasters constantly, Zhu Yuanzhang even a complete home, he had no choice but to go begging, to become a monk ......

The good thing is that Zhu Yuanzhang's life is very hard, after so many trials and tribulations, froze did not take away his little life.

Later, Zhu Yuanzhang joined Guo Zixing's rebel army in order to have enough to eat, without realizing it, his fate changed. Zhu Yuanzhang was extremely talented in fighting battles, especially when he was fighting Chen You Lang, he showed his military command ability beyond normal people.

Throughout the history of China, the northern expedition is very difficult to succeed, but Zhu Yuanzhang froze from the south to the north to drive the Yuan dynasty out of the Central Plains, completing the great unification.

As for where Zhu Yuanzhang's outstanding ability came from, apart from his hard study after joining the army, his outstanding talent also played a big role.

A portrait preserved by the descendants of the Zhu family

Zhu Yuanzhang in the fight for the world, extremely will enlist the hearts of the people, the seal of the seal, the reward of the reward, so that the people who follow him, to fight the war, are able to play life.

But after he became emperor, he felt that he was still giving too much, and began to take back from them again and again what he had rewarded them, even including their lives.

In the early Ming four cases, Zhu Yuanzhang cleaned up the meritorious ministers is really quite a lot, Zhu Yuanzhang do so, naturally, is to do their best possible, to eliminate the old Zhu family have hidden dangers to ensure that his children and grandchildren can keep his good fight down the rivers and mountains.

After Zhu Yuanzhang became emperor, he worked diligently while plowing through his harem despite his labors, so much so that he had as many as 26 sons, who continued to pass on his lineage, resulting in their old Zhu family reaching a rather impressive number.

After several generations of Zhu Yuanzhang's descendants, some collateral descendants, too, were slowly marginalized, and by the time the Qing army entered the country, these descendants of the Zhu family, who were far from the center of power, were no different from ordinary people.

It is also because of this layer that they have been able to continue to flourish and spread their branches.
