The Imperial Age 山河月明 Episode 22 Recap
Miaoyun cooked and cooked roast goose for his father for the last time. Several children gathered around the table and endured the sadness in their hearts. Watching their father eat roast goose, they all recalled their previous memories in unison. After Zhu Yuanzhang returned to the palace, he sat alone in the hall, and the prince Zhu Biao walked in and sat down, telling Zhu Yuanzhang that Xu Da had passed away.
Zhu Yuanzhang choked up and talked about his childhood memories, and those brothers who lived and died with him, but now they all left one by one. Zhu Yuanzhang issued a decree to quit the dynasty for three days and pay tribute to the king of Zhongshan for three days.
Zhu Biao complied with the decree and submitted a military report to Peiping. Hearing that Zhu Di had gone 800 li deep into the Mobei, Zhu Yuanzhang was furious and worried about his son at the same time. He ordered Peking Dusi Guang to send reconnaissance cavalry to inquire about the news of King Yan along the side, and if there is a military report, it will be expedited to the capital for 600 miles.
At this time, Zhu Di took advantage of the unpreparedness of the Yuan people and took down the tent here. Zhang Yu said that this is a hot spring and a good place to spend winter. According to him, it is not suitable to stay here for a long time. The tent they took down was headed by Amaratai, the prefect of the Privy Council.
Later, when Zhu Di returned safely, the first thing he did was to ask for a decree for the sacrifice of the brothers. Zheng Heng led the soldiers to kneel to the King of Yan, and admired his daring feat of leading 5,000 elite cavalry to go deep into Mobei. Not long after that, Zhu Di made another appearance and wanted to lead all Beiping soldiers to go deep into Mobei to kill the enemy. Zhu Yuanzhang was not in a hurry to express his position, and asked Zhu Biao to write to Zhu Di. As for the expedition to the North, Zhu Yuanzhang wanted to hear what the officials had to say.
Li Shanchang supported His Majesty to choose good soldiers and generals and clear Mobei. After retreating from the court, Zhu Yuanzhang and Zhu Biao complained that Li Shanchang took Zhu Di’s credit lightly in a few words, and those who made it seem to be uneasy if they don’t hold the military power in their hands. Lu’s and Zhu Biao recommended Lan Yu, and Zhu Biao told Zhu Yuanzhang about the proposal.
Zhu Yuanzhang finally ordered Lan Yu to be the general of the North. Sapphire, who was reused, was grateful, and kept thanking His Highness Long En. Mrs. Lu also advised Mrs. Chang to stop blaming the Crown Prince. After all, the matter of Lan Yu was facilitated by His Royal Highness.
In the 20th year of Hongwu, Mobei entered the cold winter, and the snow was flying. In the Ming Dynasty, Lan Yu, the general of the North, marched into Mobei and attacked Liaodong with an army of two hundred thousand. With the temperature getting lower and lower and the heavy snow blocking his eyes, Lan Yu felt that he had not achieved an inch, and still went deep into Mobei. On the way, many soldiers froze to death. Some people suggested that the teacher should return to the DPRK, but Lan Yu disagreed. All beheaded.
In 1388 AD, in April of the 21st year of Hongwu, Lanyu soldiers entered Mobei and broke through the reinforcements in Yuyuerhai. Beiyuan Tiandi only escaped Gus Timur. So far, the Ming Dynasty has experienced 18 years, successively. Launched six large-scale northern expeditions, and finally completely destroyed the remnant regime of the Yuan Dynasty that had occupied Mobei for more than 20 years. Lan Rong returned to Peiping City to report that Zhu Di agreed to have a fast horse set up for him, and Lan Rong expedited the general to report back to the DPRK.
This time, Mobei was cleared, and a large number of people, horses and sheep were captured. Li Shanchang and other civil and military officials congratulated Zhu Yuanzhang. Zhu Yuanzhang Jin Lanyu was the Duke of Liang, and he gave iron coupons, and at the same time asked those below the prince to greet him in the suburbs.
The Imperial Academy has written a recitation of Huang Yu, and he hopes that His Majesty will consider the ceremony of welcoming the suburbs. Mrs. Chang prepared some gifts. Thank you Mrs. Lu for your help. Otherwise, my uncle Lan Yu would never turn around. Zhu Gaochi and Zhu Gaoxi practiced martial arts, and Zhu Gaoxi didn’t let the weak eldest brother, his reason was so much that Miaoyun could not refute.
Lan Yu did not bring the army to Peiping for adjustment. King Yan came to the army camp in person. Lan Yu kept Zhu Di outside the camp for a long time on the grounds that he was busy with official business. Having ushered him in, Sapphire proudly showed him the captured warhorse.
