Why are there so many magical coincidences in the Ming and Qing dynasties?

Coincidence is always you everywhere in nature or in human social life, and coincidence can most arouse people's mystery and curiosity. There have been many amazing coincidences in the history of the Ming and Qing dynasties. Let us first look at the several coincidences in the history of the Qing Dynasty.

One is the rise of Nurhachi, the ancestor of the Qing Dynasty, in Fushun, marking the beginning of the Manchu ascending to the Dragon Court. After the Sino-Japanese-Manchu War, the last Qing emperor Puyi was imprisoned in the Fushun War Criminals Management Office, which marked the complete withdrawal of the Qing Dynasty from the stage of history. It can be said that the rise in Fushun, the defeat in Fushun.

The second is that the queen of Qing dynasty Nurhachi was Yehnala, and the last queen of the Qing Dynasty, the queen of Emperor Guangxu (Zaiyan) was also Yehnala.

The third is that the two generations at the beginning and the end of the Qing Dynasty experienced the emperor being an orphan, relying on the support of the widow mother, and the regent dynasty in charge. In 1644, when the Qing army entered the customs and established the Qing dynasty, the 6-year-old Shunzhi Emperor (Aisin Jueluo·Fulin), the widow of Emperor Taizong Taiji’s widow Xiaozhuang, was supported as the first emperor of the Qing Dynasty. His uncle Dorgon was in power as the regent; and the last emperor of the Qing Dynasty, Xuantong Emperor (Aisin Jueluo Puyi) was only 3 years old when he became the throne, and his biological father, Prince Zaifeng, was appointed as the regent. Three years later, the Qing Dynasty collapsed, and the Empress Dowager Longyu led Xuantong to issue an abdication edict. Later generations concluded that the Qing dynasty began with the regent of orphans and widows, and finally the regents of orphans and widows, the situation is very similar when one gains and one loses.


The Ming Dynasty and the Qing Dynasty were established one after another. Although the ruling nation was one Han and one full, there were many coincidences between the two.

The first is that the Qing Dynasty and the Ming Dynasty have surprising similarities in the phenomenon of the uncle's power, and there is a stage when the uncle is in power at the beginning of the founding of the country. In the first year of Jianwen in Ming Dynasty (AD 1399), the uncle of Jianwen Emperor Zhu Yunxi, the then King of Yan Zhu Di, initiated the "Battle of Jing Nan". Three years later (AD 1402), he conquered Nanjing. Jianwen Emperor Zhu Yunxi was ousted from power by his uncle Zhu Di. End. Emperor Shunzhi of the Qing Dynasty succeeded to the throne when he was young, and his uncle Dorgon was named as the regent, but he actually performed the emperor’s power on his behalf. He used the emperor’s tone to approve the decree. Before the death of Dorgon, Emperor Shunzhi lived under the reign of his uncle. Under the shadow of the king.

Second, there were three emperors without children in the Ming and Qing dynasties. The three emperors Jianwen, Ming Wuzong and Ming Guangzong of the Ming Dynasty had no children, and the three emperors Tongzhi, Guangxu and Xuantong of the Qing Dynasty also had no children after death. After the death of Tongzhi and Guangxu, they could only choose to inherit from the nearest branch clan. people.


Another historical coincidence involves the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties. The original three gates of the Forbidden City in Beijing were Zhengyang Gate, Chongwen Gate, and Xuanwu Gate. When the Qing Dynasty died, people were surprised to find that the names of these three gates actually implied the three gates of the Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties. The year number, the coincidence here is also amazing. Indeed, in the last reign titles of the Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties, there was a word exactly the same as one of the first three names in Beijing. The last emperor of the Yuan Dynasty Yuan Shun Emperor (Bir Zhijin Tuo Huan Tie Mu'er) temple name Hui Zong, successively used the three years of "Yuan Tong", "Zhi Yuan" and "Zhi Zheng", which he used in the past. The last year is "Zhizheng". The "Zheng" in the "Zhizheng" reign is the same word as the name of Zhengyangmen; the reign of the last emperor of the Ming Dynasty, Sizong Zhu Youjian, is "Chongzhen", in which the word "Chong" is the same as the name of Chongwenmen; The last name of the Qing Dynasty, "Xuantong", the word "Xuan" is exactly the same as the name of Xuanwumen.


Whether the coincidence phenomenon is accidental similar or implied by human beings is still unclear. Looking for and exploring historical coincidences and paying attention to the "chances" occasionally leaked in the historical development process will help accelerate the progress of human civilization.
