Chapter 828: Turbulent undercurrents (2)
Xu cijiu didn’t ask for the reason and simply nodded.
How could he enter the Ministry of official personnel? Even the Duke of Wei couldn’t do this. Unless he had a good reason, he didn’t have the right to enter the Ministry of official personnel affairs to investigate the case … I don’t have any connections in the Ministry of official personnel affairs. Well, I do have one, but I’ve already released his nephew, so I can’t blackmail him anymore.
Xu Qi ‘an rubbed the space between his eyebrows and frowned.
“By the way, have you heard of Xu Zhou?”
Xu Qi calmed down and changed the topic. He didn’t forget about the first supervisor and asked his knowledgeable younger brother for information.
Xu niannian frowned and thought for a long time. Then he shook his head and said, “”l’ve never heard of it. When I have free time, I’ll help big brother investigate. Every dynasty would change the name of a state.
“In addition, the commoners have different names for the states. For example, the Jian state is also known as the Wu State. This is because martial Union’s influence in the Jian state is so great that it has suppressed the government, Therefore, it was jokingly called Wuzhou in the beginning. Later, this name was gradually passed down.
the big continents are still fine. It’s easy to check them by changing their names. They’re small in size and the number is varied. It will take a long time.
Jian province was also known as Wu province. Did that mean Xu Province was also known as the other provinces? “Thank you, Erlang,” Xu Qi ‘an said after some thought.
The next day, Xu Erlang rode his horse to the Hanlin Academy. Strictly speaking, Shu ji shi was not an official position, but a study and work experience.
After becoming a Shu ji shi, Xu Erlang had to continue his studies, and the scholars of the Han Lin Academy were responsible for teaching him. During this period, he was involved in some writing work, assisting scholars to make notes on books, drafting imperial edicts for the Emperor, and explaining Sutras to the Emperor, princes, and princesses.
Because of Xu Qi ‘an, Xu Erlang’s future had suffered a huge blow. He had no chance to draft the Imperial edict and explain the Scriptures to the Emperor. It was also because of Xu Qi ‘an that he was like a fish in water in the Hanlin Academy and was treated with respect.
The officials of the Hanlin Academy were the noblest of the noblest. They thought highly of themselves and admired Xu Qi ‘an’s actions. They were also very polite to Xu Erlang.
After listening to the lecture of the Hanlin Academy’s Grand Secretary, MA Xiuwen, Xu niannian entered the document library and began to look up the previous Emperor’s living records.
The emperor’s living records were not confidential. They were a type of information that anyone in the Hanlin Academy could access. After all, the living records were to be written in the history books.
And history books were for people to read.
Compared to Emperor Yuan jing, who was destined to be more controversial in the future, the former Emperor’s life could be said to be ordinary. He was neither fatuous nor forceful. In the 49 years of his reign, he had only launched two wars against foreign countries.
The Barbarian tribes of the north and south were pressing too hard, so they had no choice but to send out troops to suppress them.
As he flipped through the pages, Xu Erlang saw a conversation that happened in the 28th year of the Jean d ‘arc. The protagonists of the conversation were the former emperor and the former head of Dao of the human sect.
The previous emperor said, ” since ancient times, those who have been ordered by the heavens can not live forever. Can the way of longevity of the Taoist sect solve this limit? ”
“Longevity is fine, but longevity is not,” the head of Dao of the human sect said.
The previous emperor continued,”l’ve heard that venerable Daoist’s Qi turned into Three Pure Ones, and the three sects began.” I wonder if it’s one person or three people?”
The conversation ended there.
“Eh, why is there no one behind?” Xu Erlang muttered and continued to flip through the book.
It was said that two hundred years ago, when the Confucians were at their peak, the Emperor was not allowed to read the daily records, much less change them. It was only when the Directorate was established and the scholars of Yun Lu Academy withdrew from the court that the Imperial power suppressed everything.
From that time on, the Emperor could look through and modify the living records.
Of course, the scholars from the Imperial College were not without a backbone. They would also argue with the Emperor and keep the truth to a certain extent. Xu Erlang didn’t pay attention to this detail and continued to read and note down.
Unknowingly, it was time for lunch.
Xu Erlang went out of the document library and went to the dining hall to eat. During the meal, he heard a few professors of the Five Classics talking while eating.
“Today’s court is truly exciting.”
“The Left Censor-in-Chief, Yuan Xiong, impeached Chief Assistant Wang for accepting bribes. Vice Minister of War, Qin Yuandao, impeached Chief Assistant Wang for embezzling military funds. The six ministers also submitted impeachments, as if they had discussed it beforehand.”
Oh, chief advisor Wang has completely offended His Majesty because of the North guarding King’s massacre case. It’s obvious that His Majesty is targeting chief advisor Wang and forcing him to beg for his remains.
Wei Yuan must be overjoyed. He and chief advisor Wang have always been at odds with each other in terms of political views.
“Today is only the beginning, the killing move is yet to come. Chief advisor Wang is in trouble this time. Let’s see how he retaliates.”
unless he can unite all the officials in the court. But in the court, the Royal faction can’t do everything with one hand.
Xu Erlang frowned and felt a little irritated.
First, he thought of Wang simu. Then, he felt that in the year of the capital Police, the factional disputes were intense. In the half year after the capital Police, the factional disputes were still intense.
After the party struggle, there was another party struggle, and after the party struggle, there was another party struggle.
How many people were truly working for the people, working for the Imperial court?
And the one who caused this situation was the Emperor of nine and five who was obsessed with cultivation.
The next day, the matter really fermented.
The Imperial censor of the left, Yuan Xiong, once again wrote an impeachment to Chief Assistant Wang, listing the six Major Crimes of corruption and making a list of 12 royal party officials involved.
Vice Minister of War, Qin Yuandao, continued to impeach chief advisor Wang for embezzling military funds and also made a list.
Emperor yuanjing was “furious” and ordered a strict investigation.
This disturbance had occurred without any warning, fast and fierce, just like the sword in the hand of a swordsman.
The king’s party was caught off guard, and there were turbulent undercurrents in the officialdom.
Xu Erlang took half a day off and rode his horse to the Wang Residence to visit the young lady of the Wang family, Wang simu.
The gatekeeper of the Prince’s Mansion was already familiar with Xu Erlang, so he told him to wait a moment and quickly entered the mansion. After a long time, he jogged back and said, ”
“Lord Xu, please follow me.”
Xu Erlang was led to the living room and saw the dignified and gentle miss Wang.
She was still as beautiful and lively as before, but there was a deep worry between her brows.
After Wang si mu dismissed the servants in the hall, Xu Erlang said in a deep voice, I’ve heard about what happened in the Imperial court these past two days. I’m afraid it’s not a simple beating. His Majesty is going to get serious. “Erlang is indeed intelligent.” Wang simu forced a smile and said,
“Father, you spent the entire night in the study room thinking hard. I knew that something bad had happened.”
the chief Assistant is experienced and shrewd. He must have a plan. Xu Erlang consoled him.
Wang simu smiled bitterly and shook his head, “the crisis this time is coming in full force. I’m afraid we don’t have time to prepare.” Today, a group of officials were imprisoned. Tomorrow, it might be my father. His Majesty will not give my father a chance to react.
“I heard from father that the day before yesterday, His Majesty summoned the Vice Minister of the Ministry of War, Qin Yuandao, and the left imperial censor,
Yuan Xiong. They came prepared.
in the Chuzhou City massacre case, father and Wei Yuan joined forces with the officials to force His Majesty to admit to his crimes. Now, His Majesty has retaliated.
“Why didn’t you ally with Lord Wei?” Xu Erlang asked after a moment of silence.
Wang si mu shook his head. Lord Wei and my father do not get along in terms of political views. They have always been enemies. I’ll be thankful if he doesn’t hit me when I’m down.
Xu Erlang was speechless for a moment. This was not the situation of the Chuzhou case, where hundreds of officials stood together to fight against the Imperial power.
To the other officials, including Wei Yuan, the fall of the king’s party was a happy event. It meant that more positions would be vacant.
These were all visible and practical benefits.
Only by taking advantage of the fall of the king’s party could they have a
greater right to speak and do more things.
“There’s only a chance of survival if my father can unite all the parties in the short term. However, to the various factions, waiting for Your Majesty to suppress my father is the greatest benefit.” Wang simu sighed and said gently,
“Erlang, what should we do?”
Xu Erlang opened his mouth, but he was speechless.
Noble Qi building.
Nangong qianrou, who was sitting beside the coffee table, was smiling. “Foster father, even if the king’s party doesn’t fall this time, they will suffer heavy losses. From then on, no one can block your path. ”
Wang zhenwen and his foster father did not get along in terms of political views, and he had been obstructing his foster father from promoting the new policies. After fighting for so many years, this stumbling block was finally going to be gone.
“The one who stopped me was never Wang zhenwen.” Wei Yuan looked down at a geomancy map and said, ‘
Dut It’S gooa tnat tneyre aown. tney•re aown, I’ll nave at least nve years …
He suddenly stopped talking. After a long time, he sighed, ‘”‘The autumn harvest will be in two months. My battlefield will no longer be in the Imperial court. Let them be.”
Foster father is planning to regain control of the military … Nangong qianrou’s spirit was lifted.
He immediately realized that something was wrong. It was his foster Father’s plan to attack the witchcraft cult after the autumn harvest. However, his words meant that he would not be in the Imperial court for a long time.
This meant that the fight against the witchcraft cult wasn’t a small matter. His foster father was planning to fight a long war? A doubt flashed in Nangong qianrou’s heart.
What was the reason?
