Many people believe that the children born by the Emperor are very happy, have a full life in silk velvet, do not have to worry much about food and clothes, without striving, can be crowned, even. even has a chance to become the next Emperor. But this is just the most positive side of the children born into the Royal Family.
As we all know, the Emperor’s harem has thousands of beauties and they will be able to give birth to many children of noble blood. The emperor has many children but only one person inherits the throne. Faced with this situation, the concubine concubine’s struggles and the Prince’s power struggles broke out.
However, not all Prince actively participated in the battle for the throne. Throughout the history of China there have been many such princes, who did not want to contend for the throne but eventually became emperor. Among them was Ly Tham, ie Duong Tuyen Tong.
Ly Tham was originally named Ly Di, was the 12th Prince of Hien Tong Ly Thuan, in the Tang dynasty. Ly Tham’s mother was the maid Trinh thi in the palace of Quach Quy Phi. She was later blessed by Duong Hien Tong and gave birth to Ly Di.
When she was a child, everyone thought that Li was not too smart. His biological mother has a very low status, so Li’s status is not so prominent. From a young age he was aware that he was completely not an opponent of the other Princes, so he never thought of contending for the throne.
Because of her biological mother’s humble status, Li was often teased and ridiculed by the other Princes. At first, he wanted to protest, but gradually felt that resistance not only did not work but also affected his mother, so he gave up. Over time, Ly Di develops a calm personality, does not fight back or respond to teasing from people around her.
Perhaps from that moment, in everyone’s eyes, Li Di was just a fool. Over time, even Duong Hien Tong believed that this son really had no intellectual development.
After the death of Duong Hien Tong, the Tang dynasty underwent four other emperors, namely, Muc Tong Ly Hang, Duong Tong Ly Dam, Duong Van Tong Ly Ngang and Duong Vu Tong Ly Vien. After Duong Vu Tong passed away, Li was crowned Emperor. Up to that time he had “faked insanity” for 36 years and was not discovered by anyone.
In 846, when Duong Vu Tong fell seriously ill, the eunuchs were reversing the main court and wanted to establish a new emperor with a stupid mind for easy manipulation. Li Di has become their best choice. At that time, Ly Di changed his name to Ly Tham, a few days later, he was called Duong Tuyen Tong.
As soon as he took the throne, Duong Tuyen Tong seemed to become a different person, showing intelligence, faster than a human. The eunuchs thought that if they chose an idiot to be the Emperor, the entire real power would fall into their hands. But they have calculated one thing wrong, Ly Tham is not stupid.
Under Duong Tuyen Tong’s rule, within a year, the arrogant and authoritarian eunuchs were eliminated. At the same time, he also executed autocratic prime minister Ly Duc Du, who had a grudge against him. Not only that, but he also loves the people like his son, attaches great importance to the selection of talents and sets strict requirements on himself and his children.
However, in the last years of his life, Duong Tuyen Tong was no different from some of his predecessors, believed in evil stories and dreamed of immortality. In 859, because of the abuse of the Taoist medicine, he changed his temperament, had a bad temper, and became seriously ill and died.
The reign of Tang Tuyen Tong can be seen as the last peaceful period of the Tang dynasty. When the Tang dynasty really died, many people still remembered his virtues throughout the world.
