The appearance of film "Jianhong Man" caused people to have strong national feelings. They respect and cherish Yue Fei, who defended his family and country, revived Song Dynasty, fought bravely, but was eventually framed by others until he died of hatred. . . .
People are more moved by Yue Fei's honesty, loyalty and bravery, and their resentment towards treacherous and sycophant from Song Dynasty is even higher. He is considered perpetrator of Yue Fei's murder.
However, why Yue Fei died of hatred when he was in good health and in good health, The real internal cause of Yue Fei's death has always been debated by people for deeper reasons.Fear of generals
The founding of Song Dynasty did not lead to land redistribution through peasant uprisings. The superiority of military officials made Song Dynasty always very wary of military generals, which became Zhao and Song's heart disease. emperors of all dynasties, frequent military coups inspired fear in them.
Especially after "Change of Miao Liu," Song Gaozong's fear and suspicion of military power and generals intensified. This can be seen in Zhao Gou's story about Guo Ziyi to Zhang Jun.
If a general controls military power, despises imperial court, and ignores orders of imperial court, fate of his descendants will be uncertain and he needs to always be on lookout, but Yue Fei is a firm and straightforward, tough and domineering person, and he even, one might say , somewhat rebellious and aggressive element.
In an era like Song Dynasty, when generals were so fearful and underappreciated, such a temper not only hindered success at court, but even led to disaster in prison.Direct omen
Yue Fei's character manifested a long time ago. During anti-gold battle, due to Yue Fei's disagreement with his superiors, he ignored martial law and directly encouraged his subordinates to leave army and go it alone.
While his judgment of war and situation is very accurate, his disobedience to orders of his superiors, although he can be understood as youthful and energetic, paved way for emperor's discontent and suspicion later on.
Excellent military talent allowed Yue Fei to quickly receive rank of Xuanfu envoy and become Yingtian ambassador in just a few years. He became a military leader and even an upstart at court.
But such power is in hands of a general, and he is also a general with extremely rich military talents. The genes that caused Emperor Zhao Song to panic began to move again.
At first, in order to strengthen his command for subsequent Northern Expedition plan, he planned to take Liu Shiguang's troops under his command. Zhao Gaozong readily agreed at first, but soon regretted it.
This ruined Yue Fei's military plan for Northern Expedition. For this reason, Yue Fei threatened to fight against imperial court with his seal of command, and stalemate lasted for six days without showing Zhao Gaozong any face.
Despite what Gao Zong spoke in front of outsiders, he didn't get angry at Yue Fei, but such patience didn't make Yue Fei change his straightforward nature.
Still insisting on plan to go straight to Yellow Dragon and firmly stating that political views of return of Song Huizong and Song Qinzong, despite being righteous, became slogan that everyone expected and declared on surface, and also encouraged people to fight against Jin dynasty.
However, if Erzong is welcomed back, it will lead not only to disintegration and restructuring of political interest groups in court, but also to what Gaozong worries about. Erzong's return will definitely have a huge impact on his orthodox influence and his throne will collapse.
Relatively simple and even naive in politics is straightforwardness and sincerity in character. Succession to throne has been a very taboo thing since ancient times.
But because they received information that Jin people wanted to support Song's son Qinzong as puppet emperor Kaifeng in order to exacerbate political chaos in Southern Song Dynasty.
For this reason, Yue Fei clashed with Zhao Gaozong and quickly confirmed prince, and also offered to support Zhao Yun as a prince in order to stop enemy's tricks. However, such firm support left a huge scope for imagination of Zhao Gaozong, who was inclined to surrender.
With such military power and victorious victories, Yue Fei actively supports Zhao Yan as a prince, formed a new interest community and a new interest group?
Zhao Gaozong will inevitably be worried that newly appointed prince will be completely expelled after he becomes emperor, or even possibility of a change of dynasty.
From moment that Yue Fei participated in transfer of power to dynasty, Zhao Gaozong had already imposed "death penalty" on Yue Fei, who was so "out of service" to some extent.Benefit Sharing
Although History of Song Dynasty clearly states that Jin people threatened to kill Yue Fei and used him as a trump card in peace negotiations. For an emperor who regained his homeland, there is nothing more humiliating.
However, Zhao Gaozong and Qin Yu, such monarchs and ministers who are not going to fight gold, found common ground with it as a treasure when faced with threat of eradicating Yue Fei and fulfilling conditions for peace negotiations.
As a result, both sides often exchanged letters. During peace negotiations, a man who was greatly hated by both sides was thrown into prison. Such a world seems to them a win-win situation, but for ordinary people, it is a win-win situation. Naked national humiliation and family hatred.
But this kind of drama, giving up lives of subjects, disregarding dignity of country, and seeking peace only for a while, has not been an isolated case since Song Dynasty established this policy. emphasizing culture and suppressing military power.
From surrendered generals of Liao Dynasty to Han Yuzhou, Song Dynasty court cared for its own safety and treated country's enemies and family hatred independently, and treated subjects and common people like dust. Such a temporary peace is based on Zhongliang's blood.
Yue Fei, as a general who entered core of political interests as a military general, held military power and was highly regarded. This has damaged vested interests of civil service groups in past, and tensions between civil and military officials naturally and quickly intensified.
As situation in Song and Jin dynasties changed on battlefield, peace negotiations between Song and Jin dynasties became a major trend in court, and a group of civil servants were already preparing to return military power to generals.Summary
As a representative of military generals, Yue Fei, especially with his direct and forthright personality, had to be victim of civil and military strife in Song Dynasty court. Only death of Yue Fei allowed civil officials to take full control of court.
During Song Dynasty, contempt and persecution of generals by Chinese people became an unspoken rule.In such a turbulent situation, Jin Dynasty quickly rose, and a group of literati were forced under pressure of Jin Dynasty, which was beginning of planning for rise of military power military attache.
Advice to Zhao Gaozong to gradually disperse powers of military attache. By and large, a military attache can only become a deputy military commander, and chief is often a writer.
For soldiers in barracks, special orders of Song Dynasty's military policy often made them know only ruler of court, but they did not know who their warlord was.
And this special group of 100,000 Yue Fei soldiers was quickly dispersed and disbanded after Yue Fei left his post, and then dispersed again, distributed to different teams, and it was difficult to regroup into strength.
The grievances and regrets of Yue Fei, who is so talented in martial arts, are beyond control of so-called perfidious official. The internal reasons for his victimization are numerous.
