The Imperial Age 山河月明 Episode 19 Recap

Shi Bie looked at him with admiration for three days. Daoyan was very relieved by Zhu Xi’s question just now, but he reminded Zhu Xi not to forget what kind of person His Majesty was. The government affairs of the court, no matter which one it is, have to be done by someone. The Ministry of Household is understaffed, and it takes more than two months to deal with the affairs.

Zhu Yuanzhang said that these will be handled by Master Lu, and Xu Hui can manage the number one accountant in the world. Zhu Yuanzhang asked Master Lu to go out with him. He didn’t quite understand why the Ministry of Household recommended Xu Hui as the Minister of the Household. Master Lu told the truth truthfully, and Zhu Yuanzhang didn’t say anything else.

Zhu Yuanzhang also knew that there was a shortage of people in the household department recently, and only 23 out of 10 were called to serve. He just killed thousands of corrupt officials, and some people followed the example of Boyi Shuqi and would rather die than eat Daming’s salary. Xiongying and Yunwen missed Master Lu very much, and Zhu Yuanzhang asked him to visit the two of them and teach them Tianli ethics in future professors.

Fang Xiaoru didn’t have enough money to buy a coffin for his father, so he had to kneel down and beg the store owner, which made the store owner very embarrassed. Others pointed and pointed, Fang Xiaoru completely ignored. When Xu Yungong passed by, he gave him a bag of money, and the people around him said he was a great man.

The crown prince came to Yanwang’s mansion and told Zhu Di that he would pay the expenses from his own inner pockets to bury the ownerless coffin. After all, the order to kill the corrupt officials was given by the prince, and he wondered if Zhu Di felt that the punishment was too much. Zhu Di said that he did not know, but the prince understood that in his position, he could not have any personal feelings at all.

He wanted to let the whole world know that the court under the Zhu family had no place for corrupt officials. Since it was him who did it, he would resist those gossips by himself, and would never let others blame Zhu Di. His words made Zhu Di almost burst into tears.

Regarding the Fengyang matter, the prince finally recognized that Zhu Di was right. The brothers hadn’t sat down and chatted together for a long time, and Zhu Di also deeply knew that the prince’s elder brother was very good to him. Later, Miaoyun asked Zhu Di why the prince came to them. Zhu Di didn’t say much, he just said that the eldest brother would ask him to become a vassal in front of his father.

The officials recommended Li Shanchang to come out of the mountain again, and Li Shanchang was from Huaixi. As a result, none of the people who recommended him to come out of the mountain was a Huaixi official. Zhu Biao sighed with emotion, the Korean father is kind.

The court was really short of people, and Zhu Yuanzhang finally made up his mind to hold the imperial examinations, which took place in the seventeenth year of Hongwu. But before that, he had to do two more ancient things. Zhu Xi would be used for these things. He asked Zhu Biao to tell Zhu Xi that after he was done with these things, he would let him go to Peiping.

Zhu Yuanzhang felt that Tie Xuan was a good person. Soon after, Zhu Di came to visit and brought Tie Xuan to meet Zhu Yuanzhang. Tie Xuan both helped Zhu Di and impeached him. Tie Xuan explained that he impeached Jin Yiwei, and Jin Yiwei was set up by the emperor, and Tie Xuan was only admonishing him because he felt that what Zhu Yuanzhang did was wrong.

These remarks were considered outrageous, and the Crown Prince and Zhu Di were shocked, and ordered someone to fork him out. Zhu Yuanzhang had already heard many historical allusions about Wei Zheng’s remonstrance from Queen Ma, so he was not angry, but rather admired Tie Xuan. Zhu Yuanzhang wanted to set up six new divisions for the job, but the Ministry of Rites lacked personnel.

After much deliberation, it was still suitable for Tie Xuan, who immediately agreed to the job. Knowing that Tie Xuan had no words, Zhu Yuanzhang gave him the word “Keystone”. Zhu Di later told Tie Xuan lightly that Zhu Yuanzhang would issue an imperial edict tomorrow. The next day, the Ming Dynasty issued an edict to dismiss the prime minister and set up six ministries and five government offices.

Li Wenzhong failed to get out of the empty seal case, but Zhu Yuanzhang still left some affection for their family. Li Jinglong was appointed as the governor’s office, and after listening to his father’s words, he resolutely decided that in the future, only the prince would follow the lead. As for Haibie, Li Wenzhong told his son to stop thinking about it. When Haibie got the news, Zhu Yuanzhang ordered Zhu Biao to inspect Caoyun, and Zhu Di led Jinyiwei to follow him.

She asked Tuya to send the news back to the grassland. Xu Yungong wanted to go back to Peiping, but His Majesty did not approve it. Xu Zengshou proposed to let King Yan help him talk about it, but Xu Yungong was reluctant to ask King Yan, and asked Miao Yun not to talk to King Yan about this. King Yan was very puzzled, Miao Yun could see clearly that Xu Yungong should not negotiate too much with Zhu Di.

Zhu Xi did not quite understand the purpose of the imperial edict, so Dao Yan answered him one by one. His Majesty listened to the advice of abolishing harsh laws, and the timing of the edict was also very special. The reason for wearing Jin Yiwei.
