Chapter 1048 Assistant four ministers
Chapter 1048 Assisting the Four Prime Ministers
The next morning, in the leaky courtyard, the eldest grandson Wuji, who arrived first, greeted Qin Lang, “Today there are baked buns, and they are hot just out of the oven.” As he spoke, he directly handed over a steaming bun.
Qin Lang took it, opened it, and saw that it was filled with horse meat. The outside was roasted golden and crispy, but the horse meat inside was juicy, tender and juicy.
“Eldest grandson came early today.”
“can not fall asleep.”
Changsun Wuji dragged Qin Lang to sit down at the dining table inside, and made another bowl of seaweed soup for Qin Lang. Putting the soup bowl in front of Qin Lang, Changsun Wuji approached and asked in a low voice, “Hou Junji has really left Beijing?”
“Well, yesterday afternoon I had a speech with the Holy Majesty, and I left Luo directly for the Western Regions after leaving the palace.”
The eldest grandson broke the baked bun skin, “It’s really cheap for this guy, and this also saved him from disaster. Saburo, you are too kind to a woman, and you shouldn’t leave room for this kind of guy. Let it go this time, and you will return later.” I don’t know how much trouble will be caused. The prince didn’t see this guy, did he?”
The eldest grandson sighed, “I heard that you stayed in the East Palace for a long time yesterday?”
“His Royal Highness is in good condition recently. He has already shouldered the burden of Henan Mu. He is serious about doing practical things. Don’t worry about grandson.”
“Is it okay not to worry? I always feel that the state of the prince is too abnormal recently, not normal. My eyelids are always twitching, and I am always worried that something will happen. You think the prince is not holding back something bad, right? ”
“Don’t worry, the prince has matured after experiencing these things.” Qin Lang also had the same bad feeling as his eldest grandson, but there was no reason, so he could only comfort his eldest grandson Wuji instead.
As soon as Wei Zheng came in, he saw Qin Lang and Changsun Wuji whispering together, coughing dissatisfiedly, “Qin Weigong, Changsun Zhaogong, what are the two prime ministers talking about?”
”Wei Zheng Gong, good morning, eat baked buns.” Changsun Wuji didn’t look good towards Wei Zheng. In the blink of an eye, I have been in the center for more than ten years, and I have not made any good contributions to governing the country. A few people I recommended have accidents.
Du Zhenglun, Hou Junji, Liu Ji, Du Chuke, etc. all sat down or demoted one after another.
Qin Lang greeted Wei Zheng and told him to eat buns.
“I already use snacks at home.”
People in Tang Dynasty called breakfast a snack, and the general officers and officials got up early, because they got up too early, and there was no time to make snacks that were too elaborate, so they usually ate porridge or panto.
Since Zhenguan, the market economy has developed and prospered, and the breakfast business has also done well. Officials have more choices. They don’t have to eat snacks at home, but they can also buy them from street food stalls on the way, such as pancakes, steamed cakes, Soup cakes, haggis soup, meat pie soup, etc. are still very rich.
Of course, if they are high-ranking officials, relatives and ministers of the third rank or above, there are also their lounges and small cafeterias in the Waiting Courtyard, where snacks are specially prepared for them, which are richer and more comfortable to eat.
When the time comes, the general of the prison gate opens the palace gate, sings the registration and puts the court officials in, and all the officials enter the golden palace to meet the emperor.
Above the golden hall, above the imperial couch, there is no one there.
A couch was added under Yuchi, and the crown prince Chengqian was sitting there in a stately manner.
The censor in the palace announced that the emperor ordered the prince to come to the court to listen to the government.
Immediately afterwards, several edicts of the emperor were read out, all of which were internal edicts drafted by the academicians of the Hanlin Academy, and the left servant shot Fang Xuanling back to the throne.
When the edict came out, the hall was full of surprise.
Emperor Crown Prince Chengqian sat in the hall, but he was as calm as an old monk sitting.
Everyone looked at Fang Xuanling, the emperor’s confidant who had been the prime minister for thirteen years, and his face was a little dazed. He didn’t seem to expect that he would be dismissed.
The reason given in the emperor’s imperial edict was also very strange. He made a small mistake and was sent back to the first post and suspended for self-reflection. What exactly is wrong, did not say.
But combined with the recent dramatic changes in the court, everyone can still guess that it is probably because it is related to the king of Wei. The party of the king of Wei is being liquidated. Finally arrived at Fang Xuanling.
“The minister obeys the imperial edict!”
Fang Xuanling stepped forward with a blank face, and thanked the empty Yuta, and then thanked the prince.
Chengqian was very indifferent to Fang Xuanling, and said a few polite words, asking Fang Gong to rest at home for a while.
After Fang Xuanling was dismissed as Prime Minister, Chu Suiliang, an admonishing doctor, was appointed as the Minister of the Yellow Gate to replace Liu Ji who was demoted from the imperial court.
Chu Suiliang was originally an official of the Eastern Palace, and he also had a bad relationship with Chengqian. Because of his good handwriting, he somehow suited Wei Zheng’s appetite, and recommended Chu Suiliang to the emperor several times. So Chu Suiliang first recorded the emperor’s daily life as a living roomer, and got the opportunity to serve the emperor.
Later, the emperor liked the calligraphy so much that he was promoted step by step and entered the fast track of promotion.
This time Chu Suiliang was able to succeed Liu Jie, but it had nothing to do with Wei Zheng. Chu Suiliang took a different path. His father, Chu Liang, was originally one of the eighteen bachelors of the Qin Palace, and he was always close to the eldest grandson’s family, and he was still an in-law. This time, he left the relationship with the eldest grandson Wuji again.
Sun Fujia, the former Minister of Dali Temple, served as the doctor of imperial history.
What is even more astonishing is that the emperor issued an imperial edict stating that Wei Zheng had improperly recommended people, employed unknown people, and was responsible for negligence. Xiao Yu, Chen Shuda, Yang Gongren, Chai Shao, Yuwen Shi and others who were suspended from their posts and returned home to oppose high-ranking officials An Xingtai were all allowed to become officials.
Wei Zheng stepped forward to receive an order to thank him, Chengqian was also very indifferent to Wei Zheng.
Qin Lang is the grand teacher of Prince Situjia, and he is also the inspector of Zhongshu Ling and knows the affairs of his subordinates.
He sat there facing these changes, and he was as calm as Fang Xuanling and Wei Zheng.
Since Zhenguan, everyone has been accustomed to the dictatorship of the emperor’s sacred heart. The prime minister of the Zhenguan Dynasty can be said to be far inferior to the Wude Dynasty. It is neither as stable as the Wude Dynasty, nor as authoritative.
Change it today and change it tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow, he will use another official title to participate in political affairs, Pingzhang political affairs, etc., and create an internal system, take the power of worshiping and dismissing the prime minister, and return it to Yushitai to supervise and impeach the prime minister, especially If the prime minister is impeached, he has to take the blame and resign to accept the investigation. These have seriously weakened the power of the prime minister and strengthened the emperor’s imperial authority.
Fang Xuanling and Wei Zheng are both prime ministers who have had ups and downs. Needless to say, Changsun Wuji, Hou Junji, Zhang Liang, Yang Shidao, etc., the most powerful ones are Xiao Yu and Qin Lang, the old and the young, and the number of strikes has almost broken through single digits.
This time it can only be said to be the aftershock after Wei Wang failed to fight for the heir, and everyone has already been mentally prepared.
I thought that Fang Xuanling’s status would not be affected much, and he had to keep some dignity, but who knew it would eventually be involved.
Changsun Wuji’s face was a little happy, but Qin Lang was very calm. He had a good grasp of Lao Li’s current situation. He knew that even if he was dismissed, it was only a slight punishment. The symbolic meaning was greater than the real meaning. People like Wei Zheng and Wei Zheng are dissatisfied with the behavior of forming a party and linking up with the vassal king.
A small punishment, as short as ten days and a half months, as long as a year and a half, and he will definitely be reinstated as an official.
But what no one expected was that Gao Shilian, the right servant, was also implicated, so he was dismissed.
The reason is that the close language is forbidden, there is no ministerial style, and he is ordered to be an official.
Zhongshu Lingchang Sun Wuji inspected the school and presided over the affairs of the Shangshu Province.
With Zhongshu Menxia Sanpin, Bingbu Shangshu, Prince Zuowei led, Bingzhou Metropolitan Governor Shi Liji inspected the school, Shangshu Youpushe, added Prince Shaozhan Shi, Prince Shaobao, and added a total of 1,000 households before Shifeng Shiyi Tongqian.
After Wei Zheng was dismissed from office, the Menxia Province was fully presided over by Qin Lang, who was in charge of the school and knew the affairs of the Menxia Province.
Zhongshu servant Ma Zhou, inspector Zhongshu assistant Xu Jingzong, Huangmen servant Cui Gan, and inspector Huangmen servant Chu Suiliang.
Li Daliang, Minister of the Ministry of Officials, Tang Jian, Minister of the Ministry of Households, Cui Dunli, Minister of the Ministry of War.
Li Ji was promoted to rank, but he still guarded Taiyuan in Bingzhou, so the inspector Youpushe and other positions were actually taken from afar. The book ordered Qin Lang to preside over it.
In this way, the two chiefs of the Zhongshu Province, respectively presided over the Shangshu and the two provinces under the sect, and truly formed a situation where the Zhongshu Ling is the most respected.
After Fang Xuanling, Wei Zheng, Gao Shilian, Liu Ji and others were dismissed from office and relegated, the layout of the Zhengshitang changed drastically again.
Zhongshu Ling, Zuo Pushe, Changsun Wuji, Zhongshu Ling, Qin Lang who also knows the provincial affairs of the school, and Jiapingzhang political affairs.
Check the school You Pushe, Li Ji, Shangshu of the Ministry of War, and the second rank of Tongzhongshumen.
Zhongshu Shilang Ma Zhou specialize in secret codes and participates in political affairs.
In addition, Minister of the Ministry of Officials, Shaoyin of Henan Province, General Zuowei, and Prince Youwei led Li Daliang to participate in political affairs.
Zhongshu left five prime ministers.
Xu Jingzong and Cui Gan, together with Chu Suiliang, did not receive the title of Minister of Political Affairs this time.
Li Ji guarded Bingzhou again, so there were only Changsun Wuji, Qin Lang, Ma Zhou, and Li Daliang left in the court.
Obviously, the emperor reserved places for Fang Xuanling, Wei Zheng and even Gao Shilian.
After the edict was read, Chengqian got up and paid homage to the four ministers of the new Zhongshu Menxia Zhengshitang.
The four ministers, Changsun Wuji, Qin Lang, Ma Zhou, and Li Daliang, accepted the crown prince’s obeisance, and then paid obeisance to the prince.
Fang Xuanling, Wei Zheng, and Gao Shilian resigned from the Golden Palace, and they are no longer qualified to stand here. Fang Xuanling and Wei Zheng are going to go home and reflect behind closed doors, and Gao Shilian will simply retire.
After the ceremony.
The prince returned to Yuchi’s bed and ordered someone to re-seat him.
The couches of Fang Wei Gaodao were removed, and four couches were placed in the hall again, Changsun Wuji, Qin Lang, Ma Zhou, and Li Daliang.
When the four ministers sat there, all the regular officials in the hall were secretly shocked. These four are all the princes, especially everyone knows that Ma Zhoujie is a poor family member, but he was a guest of Qin Lang’s family first. He just became an official and has a close relationship with Qin Langna over the years.
As for Li Daliang, although he is a general of Guanlong, he once voted for Wagang. Since the beginning of Zhenguan, he has been partnering with Qin Lang, guarding Hetao and guarding Lingnan. It goes without saying that the relationship between the two has been in these years.
If you count the British Duke Li Ji who is still in Bingzhou, he was also from Wagang. Now, in this court, there is a faint feeling that Wei Guogong Qin Lang is headed, and the uncle and grandson Wuji can’t cover it. Stay sharp.
The emperor also said in the decree just now that the emperor was saddened by the death of Empress Wende, and recently he was ill again, so he was temporarily unable to govern the country. From now on, the Luoyang court will be handed over to the prince Chengqian to supervise the country and face the court. The four political affairs The prime minister of the hall assists the government.
One decree is to completely settle the dust of the reserve position, and the prince will also start the road of supervising the country and facing the court. In order to let the prince let go of his fists, the emperor even drove Fang Xuanling and Wei Zheng home first.
Left eldest grandson Wuji right Qin Lang, and then Ma Zhou to match Li Daliang, no need to worry about being constrained, the time has come to really test the prince’s ability, and it is also the time to test eldest grandson Wuji Qin Lang and the others.
After the early dynasty ended, Chengqian asked the four ministers to stay and fight the battle.
“Just now there is something I didn’t say outside. The saint has already set off to return to Chang’an with light clothes. He told Gu that he will stay at least until the end of the year. Maybe he will return to Luoyang for the New Year, or maybe he won’t come at all. Next, Luoyang Chaotang will all depend on The four prime ministers are here!”
Chengqian told an amazing news.
The emperor left Luoyang quietly and went back to Chang’an city.
Changsun Wuji looked at everyone in blank dismay. He never expected that the emperor would keep such a big matter from him?
“It’s too…” The eldest grandson closed his mouth halfway through speaking, and he was suspected of being disrespectful if he continued.
But everyone still heard his thoughts, but no one answered.
Qin Lang was not surprised, but Cheng Qian was probably happy to finally meet freely. As for Ma Zhou and Li Daliang, they did not dare to disrespect the emperor.
“My lords, what should I do next? There are so many things to think about, and there are thousands of miles of land, where should we start?” Cheng Qian asked.
