Why did Cao Cao set up seventy-two tombs before his death

​Cao like people say that it is the first hero of The Three Kingdoms, no unification of the world is a historical regret, the huge ear thief, Sun 100,000, Zhuge village Fu are historical sinners. The disgusted people attacked Cao "bones exposed in the wild, thousands of miles without chicken crow", massacred hundreds of thousands of people, not the kui is the ceiling of the false circle.

In the romance of The Three Kingdoms, Cao realized that he had done so many bad things in his life that he dug seventy-two suspected tombs to confuse the world.

​Cao killed too numerous people. This is not Luo Guanzhong in the "Romance of The Three Kingdoms" to pour muddy water on Cao, which is obviously recorded in history. Among those who died under Cao's sword were high-ranking officials, world-renowned scholars, miraculous healers, queens and even Cao's own women. Men and women, young and old, are counted, as long as Cao is eyeing, back bedding paper to report to the king of hell there.

Dong Cheng and Liu Bei, generals of chariot and riding, prepared to kill Cao according to the coat and belt orders of Emperor Xian. ​Cao made wine with green plumes and said to Liu Bei, "Today, the only heroes are the king and his ears." Liu Bei was so frightened that his chopsticks fell to the ground. In fact, it was because he was wearing a servant. After the incident, Liu Bei fled to Xuzhou with his soldiers, and Dong Cheng became a ghost of misfortune. Together with Wang Fu and Zong Ji, the three tribes were destroyed.39bet-đua chó-game giải trí -đá gà-đá gà trực tuyến-đánh bài

More than ten years later, in 214 AD, Empress Fu and her father wrote a letter pleading for the injustice of Dong Cheng. Cao Cao was furious and Empress Fu and her two sons were killed. Before this, Cao Cao also killed various people, including Zhao Yan of Yilang. A few years later, Cao killed Jin Yi, Geng Ji, Wei Huang, Gibbon and additional people. All three families were destroyed.

Among the readers, Kong Rong, a famous scholar, Yang Xiu, Yuan Zhong, Huan Shao and others were killed. The famous doctor Hua Tuo, one of Cao's concubines, and a commissarian all died because of Cao's paranoia. As for the general public, Cao captured many Yuan Jun during the Battle of Guandu. Because Yuan Jun wanted to return to Yuan Shao, Cao buried 80, 000 people alive. The most famous, of course, was the massacre of Xuzhou in 193 AD. Hundreds of thousands of people were killed by Cao.​

The ancients were superstitious. If they killed too many people, they would worry about retribution. For example, when Xiao Luan, Emperor of Qi Ming in the Southern Dynasty, killed all the descendants of his uncle Gao Emperor Xiao Daocheng, he would burn incense and pray, which was actually a manifestation of guilt. ​Cao is no exception. He knows he has killed too many people, estimate he usually did not have a little nightmares. ​Cao killed those influential officials and scholars, they still have old students, or pity them. Once these men are in power, there's no guarantee they won't go after Cao's tomb. By the way, Cao himself is a master of stealing graves and digging tombs to make a fortune. What hair mound of Lang general, touch gold lieutenant is Cao's genius masterpiece. After killing people and digging graves, Cao was naturally afraid that others would follow his example and give him a "return to the light of day" after his death.

What to do? The world's first "Cao Hei" Luo Guanzhong wrote in this way: "Cao left orders in Zhangde Fu Wu City outside, set up a suspected tomb 72, 'do not let posterity know my burial place, fear of being discovered thus also. 'With a deep sigh, tears poured down, and he died." According to folklore, Cao built seventy-two tombs near Linzhang and Cixian in the southern part of Hebei Province, all of which were fake tombs of the same size, so that would-be grave-stealers could not find the real ones and escape in the underworld. In fact, there is no such thing as 72 suspected tombs. They are all deliberate attempts to vilify Cao.​

​Cao's splendid and treacherous life, in fact, can be connected with three cities. The first was Xudu, the place where Cao took Emperor Xian to command his vassals. This was the starting point of Cao's brilliant career. The second is Yidu, that is, Wei County, which is in the area of Cixian County in the southern part of Hebei Province, and Anyang in Henan Province is not far to the south. The third is Luoyang, where Cao finally died. Everyone was familiar with Xudu and Luoyang, but Cao usually lived in Yidu, where TongQitai was built.

The reason for this was Cao's key control of Hebei. Hebei was the former land of Yuan Shao. ​If Cao could not control Hebei, the Central Plains would not only be unstable, but also be prone to attack by Wu Shu. ​Cao forever lived in Yidu, and it would be better for him to digest and destroy the achievements of Yuan himself. In addition, with the inferiority of the narrow Central Plains, he destroyed the powerful Yuan Shao of Hebei, which was the most glorious moment in Cao's life. To let people remember their great achievements, it is best to live in the most representative place in the battle to destroy Yuan. Yidu is undoubtedly the most suitable place.

Therefore, after the death of Cao, his filial son Cao PI buried his father in Gaoling to the west of Yidu. Before he died, Cao suggested to the crowd, "You usually want to go to the Bronze Finch Terrace. Where can you see my tomb to the west?" ​Cao's Mausoleum is in Anyang County, Anyang City, Henan Province.

​Cao's murder can be roughly divided into several types.

I. Political enemies:

In the fifth year of Jian 'an (200 AD), Dong Cheng, Wang Fu, Zongji and Wu Zilan were killed, and all their families were destroyed.

In the 19th year of Jian 'an (214 AD), he killed Fu Wan (and Empress Fu and two royal sons) and exterminated his family.

In the twenty-third year of Jian 'an (218AD), they killed Jin Yi (" Yi "in the book of the Later Han Dynasty), Geng Ji, Wei Huang and Gibbon, etc. All their families were killed.

In the first year of Xing Ping (194 AD), Bian Rang was killed, along with his wife and children.

Jian 'an 13 years (AD 208), kill Kong Rong, exterminate.

Jian ',an 24 years (AD 219), killed Yang Xiu, for the sake of the ancient Taiwei Yang Biao face, not the family.

In addition, Yuan Zhong and Huan Shao were killed by Cao because they had offended Cao.​

3. Suspicion leads to murder:

Hua Tuo was a famous contemporary doctor. ​Cao was so furious that he killed Hua Tuo.

One of Cao's concubines was killed by Cao with a large stick because he was suspicious.

One of the main commissariat officers in Cao's army wanted to mutiny because of the shortage of commissariat. ​Cao killed the innocent commissary and accused the commissary of stealing grain, which barely stabilized the army.

4. Enemy Soldiers:

In the fifth year of Jian 'an (200 AD), Cao Cao defeated Yuan Shao at Guandu and captured a large number of Yuan's troops. ​This Yuan Junxin to Yuan Shao, to Cao false surrender, was found. ​Cao buried 80, 000 Yuan soldiers alive before and after the battle!

V. Innocent People:

In 193 AD, Cao Song, the father of Cao, was killed by the subordinates of the Xuzhou shepherd Tao Qian while he was taking refuge in Xuzhou. ​Cao, seeking revenge, led his army south to Xuzhou. ​When Cao failed to take Tancheng County (now Tancheng in Shandong Province), the prefecture of Xuzhou, he directed his anger at the innocent people.

​Cao massacred the people of Suizhou, Suizhou Ling and Xiachu, and it was recorded in the Biography of Tao Qian in the Book of the Later Han Dynasty: "After taking Suizhou, Suizhou Ling and Xiachu, he slaughtered them all. Where hundreds of thousands of men and women are killed, there are no chickens and dogs, Surabaya does not flow." "Zhi ZHI TONG JIAN" OF THE VIEW IS: "CHICKEN DOG ALSO DO, MARKET CITY WITHOUT REPLY PEDESTRIAN."
