Zhu Gaoxu walked out of Qianqing Palace in a daze, and he still hadn’t regained consciousness until he reached the palace gate.

Isn’t it to go to Yunnan to become a feudal lord and stay away from these whirlpools of right and wrong when I enter the palace today to meet the saint?

How could he be deceived by that thief Zhu Di and end up taking over the mess of Jianguo?

Zhu Gaoxu was very unhappy, but he did not dare to break out.

After all, that thief is Emperor Yongle, the true master of the Ming Dynasty!

Seeing the palace gate in front of him, the eunuch who was leading him suddenly stopped and looked at Zhu Gaoxu with eager anticipation.

Zhu Gaoxu was a little confused when he saw this, and looked around with suspicion. Then he thought about it, grabbed a few golden beans from his sleeves, and handed them over.

‘Thank you, Second Master, for the reward!’

The eunuch’s movements were extremely skillful, and it seemed that Zhu Gaoxu had done this frequently in the past.

Everyone in the palace knew that the Prince’s Palace was famous for being stingy, but the Prince of Han’s Palace was famous for being wealthy.

After all, the Han vassal state is in Yunnan. Although Yunnan is a place with poor mountains and rivers, it has always produced many gold mines.

Although the King of Han did not go to seize the vassal, the local officials in Yunnan were not stupid. Every year, large and small boxes of things were sent to the King of Han’s palace, especially gold.

Therefore, Prince Han’s golden beans were well-known among the palace people.

Seeing the eunuch’s flattering smile, Zhu Gaoxu also sighed.

They are all poor people.

If life is decent, who wants to have a little green on their head…Who wants to take that knife and become an eunuch?

However, the Ming Dynasty has always been criticized for the eunuchs’ disorderly conduct. If we really want to talk about the source, it was really Zhu Di.

Taizu Zhu Yuanzhang had always disliked eunuchs. During his reign, he marginalized eunuchs and even established iron laws to prevent eunuchs from interfering in politics. Emperor Jianwen also looked down upon these scoundrels.

However, in the success of the Jingnan Campaign, eunuchs played a remarkable role. For example, Wang Yanwang Gouer, the eunuch of the Yan Palace, repeatedly made military exploits in the Jingnan Campaign. Now he became the first eunuch to guard Liaodong, and he was highly regarded by Zhu Di. .

This led Zhu Di to believe that eunuchs, as the emperor’s personal servants, took orders directly from the emperor, were absolutely loyal to the emperor, and could do anything for the emperor.

Therefore, the trust he gave to the eunuchs was far greater than that of the courtiers and officials.

In addition, at the beginning of Zhu Di’s accession to the throne, on the one hand, rumors that Emperor Jianwen was still alive appeared from time to time, and on the other hand, many ministers in the court were not very supportive of the new regime. As a result, Zhu Di also distrusted the court ministers, so he was more willing to believe these. eunuch.

So Zhu Di violated Taizu’s prohibition on eunuchs not to interfere in political affairs, reused eunuchs, and even later established the notorious secret service Dongchang.

Of course, these are all things for later.

The young eunuch looked at Zhu Gaoxu, who had a gloomy expression, and immediately reminded him in a low voice, ‘Second Master, we are here.’

Zhu Gaoxu was awakened at this moment, but he thought about it for a moment and suddenly said, ‘Take me to the East Palace.’

The Prince’s Mansion in the East Palace.

Before Zhu Gaoxu entered the door, he saw a group of officials from the Prince’s Palace being escorted out by the royal guards.

Fortunately, these subordinate officials are not of high rank, they are all green-robed officials.

According to the Ming Dynasty system, officials wear Fei robes of grades 1 to 4, green robes of grades 5 to 7, and green robes of grades 89.

Zhu Gaoxu noticed this detail and knew that it was just Zhu Di’s trick on the prince, so he didn’t pay much attention to it.

However, when the officials of the Prince’s Palace saw Zhu Gaoxu, King of Han Dynasty, they were as jealous as if they had seen their enemies.

The people who were originally quiet immediately started to make a loud noise.

‘It’s unfair, it’s unfair!’

‘The sycophant is in power and deceives the saints. We are wronged!’

‘Your Majesty, I have been wronged!’

When Zhu Gaoxu heard these wailings, he frowned and stopped.

A sycophant?

Are you talking about yourself?

He looked at the prince’s palace officials in front of him who wanted to bite him to death, and slowly waved to the leading Jin Yiwei.

‘Who is that? What is going on?’

The leading Jin Yiwei trotted over and said with a flattering smile, ‘Prince Han, we are following His Majesty’s order to arrest the officials of the Prince’s Palace. I don’t know about the others.’

Oh, what a knock it was.

Zhu Gaoxu nodded, casually grabbed a handful of golden beans and threw them to him.

Jin Yiwei, who took the lead, caught it skillfully and put it into his sleeve without leaving any trace.

These are all officials of the Prince’s Mansion. Prince Han gave him so many golden beans, right…

The leading Jin Yiwei reacted immediately, stepped forward and lowered his voice and said, ‘Master, tell me, how to deal with them?’

‘As long as you don’t die, whether you are missing an arm or a leg is all a matter of your words…’

Zhu Gaoxu was dumbfounded and looked at him blankly.

Is this what I mean?

‘Ahem, I’m used to seeing the action, don’t think too much about it.’

The flag officer was stunned for a moment and then reacted.

Don’t think too much?

That means…it can’t be too serious. Missing arms and legs is the bottom line.

The leading Jin Yiwei nodded in agreement, and then cast a veiled look at Zhu Gaoxu.

My lord, I understand, just look at it!

Zhu Gaoxu was stunned by him, and he had some doubts about what happened to the Ming Dynasty.

The officials of the Crown Prince’s Palace had a clear view of the two men’s movements, and their voices suddenly became louder and louder, mixed with indescribable grief, anger and grievances.

Just at this moment, a heartbreaking cry came out.

Zhu Gaoxu was stunned after hearing this, and walked in quickly, only to see a bloated man, weighing about two or three hundred pounds, sitting on the steps crying without any image, holding a white-haired dog in his hand. .

Grandson Zhu Zhanji also stood aside, watching his own father cry bitterly.

Ah this…

Prince Zhu Gaochi?

And the bachelor of Baimao Pavilion?

Zhu Gaoxu was speechless and watched quietly.

‘Son, I’m so tired, but your grandpa still has objections to me… He doesn’t believe it… I don’t deserve to be the prince anymore… Let the second child do it!’

‘I gained more than ten pounds because of this mess in the prison country. Is it easy for me? Oh, oh, son, let’s go back to Shuntian… I’ll leave this mess to the second child!’

‘My poor son, this sky cannot tolerate us, it cannot tolerate us…’

Zhu Gaoxu watched quietly from the side, almost bursting into laughter.

He was not sure whether the son the boss was talking about was Zhu Zhanji, the great sage, or the bachelor of Baimao Pavilion he was holding in his arms.

‘Ahem… Nephew, why don’t you go help your dad up quickly? What a shame!’

Only then did everyone realize that the King of Han had come in at some unknown time.

Zhu Zhanji’s face turned red with embarrassment, and he hurriedly stepped forward to help him, but unexpectedly, he couldn’t help Tie Hanhan at all due to his terrifying weight.

‘Are they all dead? Come here quickly!’

Zhu Zhanji was furious and shouted at the palace maids and eunuchs. Then everyone hurried forward and worked together to lift the prince up.

When the prince saw the King of Han, grief and anger surged into his heart, and he suddenly sobbed, ‘Second brother, since you have seen it too, then go and tell the old man that I can’t do this prince anymore.’

‘I know that there is a war all day long. What will happen to the victims? What will happen to the water transportation? What will happen to the Yongle ceremony? Will Shuntian and the imperial mausoleum be repaired? He is very happy, and I will bear all the difficulties alone…’

‘I won’t do it anymore. I can’t do it anymore. He loves you. I’ll leave this whole thing to you from now on…’

Zhu Gaoxu heard this and suddenly said, ‘Boss, dad just said that I would supervise the country…’

As soon as these words came out, the East Palace suddenly became quiet. Everyone looked at the King of Han in disbelief and then at the Prince.

Zhu Gaochi was stunned and didn’t react for a long time.

Zhu Zhanji’s complexion changed drastically and he was full of panic.

The servants in the East Palace lowered their heads one after another, not even daring to take a breath.

Even people with no common sense know what this means.

King of Han, supervising the country?

Is the emperor dissatisfied with the prince?

Daming, is the sky going to change?
