Chapter 1047 King’s Promise
Chapter 1047 Promise of the King
“His Royal Highness, Hou Junji left. In the afternoon, he went to Yang Palace to face the Holy Majesty’s speech. After leaving the palace, he didn’t return home, so he went straight out of Luoyang to Xizhou to take up his post.”
Qin Lang took the initiative to mention it after seeing Cheng Qian, but Cheng Qian just hummed and remained unmoved.
“Duke Wei, Luoyang Guozijian is short of places, and I have been ordered by the Henan government to solve this matter. What suggestion does Duke Wei have?” Chengqian changed the subject.
Guozijian was originally only established in Chang’an, but because of the continuous increase in the number of students enrolled, the number of students exceeded 8,000, so it was diverted later, and Guozijian was also established in Luoyang. Before the capital was moved to Luoyang, the two Zijians in Chang’an and Luoyang were already very mature.
The Guozijian in Chang’an mainly recruits the children of nobles and nobles. There are Guozixue, Taixue, Simenxue, Law, Calligraphy, and Mathematical Sciences, known as the Six Schools, which are equivalent to six colleges. Among them, the number of Guozixue students is the least. When Wude was first established, there were only 300 students, all of whom were children of nobles.
Later, the number gradually increased. By the beginning of Zhenguan, the number of the Sixth School of Chang’an Guozijian had reached 8,000. After the new Guozijian was opened in Luoyang, there were also many students.
Especially since the Zhenguan period, the Celestial Dynasty system was established. The imperial court implemented the system of tribute and jumi to the barbarians in the four sides, and incorporated all countries into the imperial court’s Celestial Dynasty system. Among them, the system of accepting protons and guards, and including the system of entering prisons for the children of the Fanyi, and the system of accepting foreign students from the Fandom.
These four systems are important conditions for establishing the Celestial Dynasty system.
All aspects of the influence of Shii.
Canonize the princes of the four barbarians, the big ones are kings and county kings, such as the king of Silla, the king of Lelang County, the king of Baekje, the king of Daifang County, the king of Goguryeo, the king of Liaodong County, and before that, Tuyuhun Khan and Xihai County kings, etc., and the smaller ones are Feng Khan, Dudu, Guogong, etc., such as the Khitan leader Feng Qidan Khan, Songmo Dudu, Zuo Lingjun General, etc.
Canonize the leaders, then designate prefectures and counties, and then call the children of these leaders to Chang’an, or enter the palace as guards for the imperial army, or go to the Imperial College to study. In fact, these leaders’ children are mainly hostages when they enter Beijing, and on the other hand, it is also to strengthen the relationship between the two sides. , and influence the future rulers and nobles of these Siyi through culture.
In recent years, the imperial court has become stronger and stronger, and Weizhen is invincible in all directions. Naturally, the celestial dynasty system has become more and more established. Even Lingnan and Nanzhong, which were originally regarded as Jimi areas, have now begun to reform the land, and those local tyrants and barbarians are even more powerful. Greatly increased the number of children entering the dynasty.
Luoyang Guozijian currently has three major categories of students. The first category is the sons of the Siyi monarchs and nobles and the handsome children of the frontier local tyrants. The other is foreign students, Silla, Dongying, Baekje, Goguryeo, Linyi, and even There are students from Tianzhu Jieri, Persian Sassanid, Eastern Rome, and Frankish countries. The third category is the children of landlords, powerful people, and even common people from the Tang Dynasty. Yes, this is to train specialist talents for the imperial court, that is, officials in the various yamen of the imperial court.
Originally, there were not many aristocratic children studying at the Luoyang Guozijian, and most of them were in the Guozixue of the Chang’an Guozijian. Now that the capital has been moved to Luoyang, a large number of high-ranking and noble children from the Chang’an Guozijian have also transferred here. The existing Luoyang Guozijian school building is not enough. .
Although the imperial court intends to divert some barbarian children to the Chang’an Guozijian, it is impossible to transfer all of them. The number of Luoyang Guozijian will exceed 10,000.
“Earlier, Mr. Wei suggested adding some disciplines, and even expanded the enrollment of some schools under the Taishi Bureau, Taiyi Department, Taichang Temple, etc., and gathered them together. I think it is very good.”
Datang’s government schools are still running well. In addition to Guozijian, the central national university, there are many junior colleges and prefectural and county schools. Junior colleges, such as the Tai Medical Office, have many medical students, and the Taishi Bureau also has many Astronomy students, in addition, there are special music students under Taichang Temple, and there are special stable students under Taipu Temple, etc.
These were originally attached to various yamen agencies, and the number is not large.
Qin Lang suggested that the scale should be expanded. After all, the territory of the Tang Dynasty is so large now, and there are so many local government offices in the central government. Not only a large number of officials are needed, but also more subordinate staff, especially some specialized officials. The traditional model cannot keep up. need.
Especially in criminal and prison litigation, money and grain arithmetic and other professional talents are extremely scarce.
Qin Lang’s suggestion is to build a school city, gather these various schools together to plan, and train specialist talents in the same way as the former Tai Medical Office and Tai History Bureau, but it is no longer a few dozen or one or two hundred training, but Ten times a hundred times to expand his scale.
“Just plan the school city outside Luoyang City. I have considered the location. I will build a brand new school city on the former site of Luoyang City in the Northern Wei Dynasty. At that time, the Guozijian and other schools will move in. This will make the school buildings bigger and more ample. It can build better and more comfortable dormitories, houses, etc. for teachers and students, and it can also build markets, shopping malls, street shops, etc. in the school city, which is easy to manage…”
Chengqian nodded again and again, “It’s a good idea, move the capital to Luoyang, Chang’an moved countless soldiers and civilians, and Luoyang city became crowded all of a sudden. The Guozijian is indeed too crowded now, and it needs to expand its enrollment, which is even more unacceptable… ·”
Qin Lang was secretly surprised to see Cheng Qian busying himself with these business matters.
The prince who has just gone through a big change has become less impetuous and frivolous, and more calm. In the past, the prince put his thoughts on his face, but now he hides his heart, and even Qin Lang can’t see it at a glance. Understood.
“Wei Gong, I have heard about the Bailu Technical School you built in Bashang, Chang’an, and I think it is very good. It is said that many skilled craftsmen and managers have been trained for the Qin family over the years. The court also has many handicraft workshops, which used to be I think your idea of a technical school is good. We can also add a new technical school in the school city this time, open various craftsmen subjects, recruit technical apprentices for training, build cities, build roads, shipbuilding, and livestock. , weaving, smelting, etc., there is a lot to do!”
Qin Lang smiled and nodded.
We chatted for a long time.
After finishing the business, Chengqian invited Qin Lang to drink tea.
“Duke Wei really won’t go back to southern Xinjiang?”
“Actually, I really want to go back. It hasn’t been sorted out there yet. I want to finish things well from beginning to end.”
Chengqian poured tea for Qin Lang, “To be honest, I have always envied Duke Wei. If there is a chance, I would also like to be able to go out of Beijing to guard one side and manage a place, even if it takes three to five years for me.”
“Kyoto is also very good.”
“Although Kyoto is good, I can’t be a home after all. What I want is a real opportunity to experience something, even if it only gives me a state.”
“His Royal Highness was in Chang’an before, and now in Luoyang, they are doing very well. The Lingjing government manages more than 20 counties, especially the land under the foot of the emperor. Isn’t it well managed?”
“It’s all due to Wei Gong and others, how many things have I really done.” Cheng Qian sighed, and he couldn’t hear depression.
“These days, I often think about one thing. If the sage really handed over the throne to me in the future, will I be able to take it over? Can I manage these thousands of miles of land and hundreds of millions of subjects? I can make the Tang Dynasty rich and powerful, and the people healthy and healthy. Is it? I used to think that being an emperor should be a simple matter, supreme, but now I think it is very difficult. It is not easy for Gao Zu and the saints to conquer this country, but I have not experienced the slightest real polishing. Can you take it?”
“Your Highness is worrying too much. The saint is now in his prime, and His Highness is still young, and there is still time to exercise. Besides, the court is full of people, the king is bright and the ministers are virtuous. In the future, His Highness will inherit the great rule and have capable ministers to assist the government. It will be very smooth. of.”
“Wei Gong, I recently read the historical records of the former dynasty. I am amazed at the ambition of Emperor Yang of the Sui Dynasty, but I also feel sorry for his defeat. To be honest, I feel that I am far inferior to Yang Guang. At the beginning of the great cause, they were all great, but why did Yang Guang lose so quickly, killing the second generation who was tossed by the Great Sui?”
“The minister has also talked about this with His Highness before. There are many specific factors. The situation in my court is much better than that in the previous court.”
“Yesterday, the sage ordered me to have an audience. When I talked about taking care of my sister, I expressed my attitude to the sage. I obeyed the sage’s arrangement and had no objection.”
“Duke Wei, I was young, arrogant, and ignorant before, and I blamed Duke Wei, and I was rude to Duke Wei. Now I hope Duke Wei can ignore the past, okay?”
Saying this, Cheng Qian got up and bowed to Qin Lang.
“I dare not.”
Qin Lang gave in sideways, looked at Cheng Qian who was becoming more and more unfamiliar, and felt mixed feelings in his heart for a moment. He used to be happy when Cheng Qian was sensible, and troubled when he was disobedient, but now he has become so mature, which makes him feel uneasy .
“Changle has to observe filial piety for three years before getting married. Now that Duke Wei is not going back to Lingnan, is he going to bring his family from Guangzhou back to Luoyang?”
“Well, someone has been sent to pick it up.”
The two suddenly had nothing to say, the hall was quiet, and the atmosphere was a bit awkward.
In the past, Qin Lang and Cheng Qian were both teachers and friends, and they had a close relationship, and even talked about everything. But now, she has lost her identity, and she doesn’t know what to say.
“The minister resigns!”
Cheng Qian raised his hand and wanted to greet Qin Lang to sit down again, but he couldn’t find what to talk about, so he could only smile at the end, “I know that Wei Gong has several jobs now, and I don’t have many jobs. Wasting your time.”
He got up and saw Qin Lang off.
“The sage rewarded me with the royal garden of Shanglinfang. When I go there in the future, I can drop by Duke Wei’s Cherry Island as a guest.”
“His Royal Highness is always welcome.”
The two walked out of the hall smiling.
Qin Lang bid farewell again, walked a certain distance, Cheng Qian called him to stop, ran up with a limp, and took Qin Lang’s hand.
“The sage once said that Duke Wei was his Huo Huoqi of the Tang Dynasty. Now Gu wants to tell Qing that he also hopes to become a great emperor like Emperor Wu of Han in the future. He hopes that Qing will be the Great General Wei Qing of Gu. In the future, Gu will inherit the world. Qing is the Prime Minister of Zhongshumen…”
Facing these words, Qin Lang didn’t know how to answer for a while.
Chengqian stretched out his arms and hugged Qin Lang, “When my king comes to the world, I will allow you to be named king with a different surname!”
Qin Lang was shocked, and Cheng Qian smiled, “Remember, this is our agreement, and it is also Gu’s promise to you!”
Standing on the same spot, Qin Lang watched Cheng Qian limping up the stairs and returning to the palace. The prince walked with some difficulty, but he tried his best to hold his head high.
Inexplicably, Qin Lang thought of the abandoned Hou Junji and Hou Liangdi’s father and daughter. The emperor Li Shimin was very nostalgic, but now Cheng Qian was very cold and heartless. Qin Lang was not only unmoved by his promise, but even secretly disturbed.
Looking at the back, Qin Lang felt that he might have to think about the way out in advance.
The prime minister of the court and the king with a different surname all made him very uneasy.
What he thought of was not Han Wudi and Wei Qing, but Yang Guang and Yang Su.
