I am a descendant of the royal family

Emperor Qianlong was the sixth emperor of the qing Dynasty, the last feudal dynasty in China. He ascended the throne in his prime and enjoyed a smooth political career. He was the only emperor who stood on the shoulders of his predecessors and enjoyed the success of the empire.In terms of emotion, he was romantic and single-minded, and devoted his whole life to the Empress Xiaoxian.On governing the country, he was both firm and gentle, recruiting the world’s good and virtuous as his own duty;In terms of taste, the “Qianlong vase” in the Palace Museum has been loved by the world for its elegant and unique colors.Since such a collection of thousands of talents and amorous feelings in one of the emperor, how can not be descendants as the light of the ancestors?One hundred years after the fall of the Qing Dynasty, a seventh grandson, known as Qianlong, “suddenly came out of the blue”, staging a modern version of the “Qing Palace drama”?So who was this man? Was he really the seventh grandson of Qianlong?Are his proud imperial genealogies and Qianlong’s twisting fingers genuine?In the face of the royal descendants of the collection of cultural relics, experts and its launch what “barbs”?The man’s name was Aisin Gioro Hengshao, a descendant of the Manchu royal family, who had been living in Jilin before he appeared in the public eye.In fact, most of the descendants of the Qing dynasty lived in the big cities in northern China. After the fall of the Qing dynasty more than 100 years ago, the descendants of the royal family changed their surname to Jin to avoid being hunted down and lived a common life.Then again, since the ancestors of the imperial family have always hidden their names, now in the 21st century, why do they “strut around”, lest the world know they are descendants of Qianlong?In fact, it is the final result of new China’s efforts to develop along the path of civilization, harmony and national integration.As we all know, There are 56 ethnic groups in China, and manchu is one of them. As an ethnic group with far-reaching influence in Chinese history, the descendants of Manchu have always maintained a natural sense of “superiority”.Such feelings are mostly from the ancestral identity, status, possessions and fame, so when the Renaissance minority culture, the modernization of China on the agenda, the anonymity for nearly a century of royal descendants, also began to stir, and desire in China and around the world, for the manchus and the royal descendants, fight for the “a”.Aisin Gioro Hengshao, one of the typical representatives, claimed to be the seventh grandson of Qianlong, and held the family tree and relics left by his ancestors.When he learned that national culture is an intangible cultural heritage that is being carried forward and passed on in today’s China, he tore off the coats of ordinary people and began to wear “dragon robes”, showing the complicated rules of the royal family for outsiders to “look over”.FIG. 4 What did Hengshao do to revive Manchu culture?First of all, the restoration of the royal dress, because Heng Shao is the emperor Qianlong’s direct line of the grandson, and holds the Emperor Qianlong’s suet jade pull, then firmly believe that they also belong to the heir of the “throne”, compared with other aixin Jueluo next to the royal descendants, Heng Shao seems to be in a position higher than other people.So he was unquestionably the “emperor” of the family.In addition to wearing a yellow robe, Heng Shao also wore a qing Dynasty “money rat tail” hair accessories, because of the poor material, Heng Shao’s overall “equipment” looks very much like the scenic area set up a “photo” project.Secondly, the display structure of the home in the Qing Dynasty was restored. In the early years, before the popularity of “tongzi Building”, every old Chinese house had a front hall and back yard, with the structure of sitting in the south and north. Relatively thrifty families would also set up beds on both sides of the front hall to rest or entertain guests.FIG. 5 With the continuous evolution of the new society, dilapidated old houses are gradually replaced by high-rise buildings, and people rarely have the opportunity to feel the freshness brought by Chinese architecture in the past.After visiting the Forbidden City, Heng Shao in accordance with the structure of the royal housing, his home into a traditional Chinese residence, the home is not only equipped with a front hall, but also hung with ancestral portraits, from the main hall mahogany tables and chairs, to eat tea with tea, are strictly in accordance with the style of the Qing Dynasty.When Heng Shao wears yellow robe to sit in front of his house, it is like an illusion of “restoration of the former Qing Dynasty”.Finally, in 2015, at the invitation of his clansmen, Hengshao presided over and participated in the “grand ceremony of ancestor worship”, in which Hengshao, dressed in imperial costume and wearing qianlong emperor’s suet jade finger on his thumb, bowed down to his ancestors with his “concubines” and “ministers”.Is it strange to say this?Is it difficult to manchu every year “ancestor worship ceremony”, are such a huge staged “Qing Palace drama”?Figure 6 Some people do not like Constant shao so swagger, but have to respect him is aixin Gioro’s surname heir, in this contradiction and dislike the double psychological support, people gradually recognized constant Shao’s “origin” and “style”.It seems that as the grandson of Emperor Qianlong, thanks to his ancestors’ dominance over the Central Plains, his descendants feel very proud of the imperial “gene” flowing in their blood even though they no longer have any privileges.Based on this, the constant salt increases the number of ancestor worship activity frequently, some people say that he is too all enjoy the feeling of “worship”, also enjoy media reported on his trumpet, selfishness is greater than he wanted to carry forward the ambitions of the manchu culture, although this is too harsh, but for the constant salt, this is his “worthy” of operation.But everything has to be measured, right?Didn’t Emperor Qianlong teach his people to be “careful in words and deeds”?Although the imperial family ruled China in the past, the people were oppressed by their feudal system, wasn’t it?Figure 7 So said, Hengshao this “operation” is indeed a little too “artificial”, as for why he indulged in the “ancestor worship” fanaticism, can only prove his gene flowing “noble” blood, gave them “pretentious” congenital conditions.Red is more people, BanZhi provoking flow when constant salt vigorously hold “the ancestor worship ceremony”, and hundreds of people were brought in to wear flag clothing worship, direct drew many netizens “criticism”, people have questioned his qing imperial house’s true identity, also for he often hang in the mouth “qianlong BanZhi” keep a heart of doubt.Of course, it is about the emperor Qianlong’s relics, natural is to cause the attention of cultural relics experts, so about hengshao is not the Emperor Qianlong’s sun, this jade jade pull is really the emperor Qianlong’s relics, also become the focus of public concern.After investigation, Aixinjueluo Hengshao, is indeed the emperor Qianlong’s grandson, this point experts found the relevant name in its collection of family tree, some people say that the family tree can also be forged, right?Fig8 But the family tree of ordinary people can be forged, but the imperial family can not be forged, after all, only the seal on the family tree can reach the level of cultural relics, no one has the courage to forge.As a result, constant Shao’s life is finalized, but he wears every day in the hand of the suet jade pull, but still provoking controversy.Some net friends think, is not a piece of suet jade?Xinjiang is much, just find a piece of pure raw materials, can also create a exactly the same pull.Want really qianlong emperor’s thing, that can take out casually swagger through the city?Wouldn’t that be remembered?As a result, doubts such as “nine out of ten are fake” and “Jade is real, it is hard to say whether it was the emperor Qianlong” flooded the Internet.But is true false, take out appraisal once not finished?This is not, cultural heritage experts on the heng Shao this ancestral jade pull, a comprehensive study?The result was “greatly disappointed” by netizens, who found that the piece was not only a fine suet jade, but also a personal possession of emperor Qianlong, and passed down from generation to generation after one hundred years.Words here and some people began to question, in modern society, a good suet jade but thousands of yuan, this is not a delicate jade pull can not be worth any money, and what is good “hype”?That being said, it was emperor Qianlong’s personal possession, wasn’t it?Can be inherited things naturally is not copied, let alone such a piece of suet jade pull has been handed down from generation to generation, the year and the holder of the pivotal position in history, this suet jade has exceeded the value of ordinary pull, and is estimated to hundreds of millions of yuan.This news once broke, netizens instantly fried pot, constant Shao with jade pull unexpectedly worth hundreds of millions?How rich is he, then?Figure 10. Actually they did not know was that the constant salt family is very solid, although the qing long, calligraphy and painting left by the ancestors of furniture and antique treasure dian, is worth hundreds of thousands of less, more than tens of millions, regardless of the value of $jade BanZhi, constant salt if not make it a revival of the ancestral culture, his possessions are enough generations life,In the final analysis, it is because of the shadow of the ancestors.But when the experts saw qianlong inheritance down the jade pull, also do not hide the love of this object, and even to heng Shao blunt: “should be handed over to the country”.Can constant Shao so precious ancestral relics, he will listen to the advice of experts, ancestral heritage treasures free to the state?”I’m a descendant of the royal family,” Hengshao told the expert.Although this sentence sounds a little stubborn, but no problem how constant salt holds a position of their treasures, because according to our country legal regulation, on the premise of no clear inheritance person, no one shall be a possession of cultural relic, offenders fined or sentenced, constant salt, apparently, is the inheritance of the qianlong emperor, the suet jade BanZhi, nature also have reason to refuse to submit.Royal descendants such as tide, although proud but powerful in fact, the descendants of the royal family, far more than the Emperor Qianlong this one, after all, the emperor also has brothers and sisters, the queen also has aunts, those who are related to the royal family, can call themselves “royal relatives”.However, with the fall of the Qing Dynasty, it was not easy for those in the royal family to survive in the social environment at that time. After all, the ideological encroachment and oppression that had lasted for thousands of years, descendants of the emperor, just like rats crossing the street, were shouted at by everyone.In addition to anonymity, holding the remaining faith to accept the transformation of the new China, the only remaining is to forget the past life, open a new socialist identity of new citizens.It is often said that “a camel is bigger than a horse when it is too thin”. It is true that the cultural and material heritage left by the royal family has been leading the people in all walks of life after they no longer live in the palace.Figure 12 well-known singer na ying, for example, she with empress dowager gens, such as kung fu star wu, his ancestors are the qing dynasty is a white flag at the Laplace, such as pianist lang lang, he is the qing dynasty NiuHu lu’s posterity, this also is one of the best in the royal clan, one of the, of course, this is just a part of the royal descendants, in one of the representative from all walks of life.In fact, there are still many royal descendants in the painting and calligraphy industry, and quietly continue the Manchu culture in their own way.Speaking of the seventh Emperor Of Qianlong sun Hengshao, he is not a good for nothing, in his high profile to publicize his birth, also use his medical expertise, and family inherited palace secrets, to show the world a unique “dazzle gold secret to want”, but this is unparalleled palace medical secrets.Although constant Shao act high-profile, people also slightly frivolous, but also for the Manchu royal descendants disappeared in the sea for hundreds of years, and strive to a breath.In fact, regarding the inheritance of history and national culture, the new generation of young people all have enough national confidence, which is the result of quality-oriented education after more than half a century.Today’s Chinese youth, with a sense of responsibility, culture and accomplishment, living in the cradle of 5000 years of Chinese civilization, they are confident to dialogue with the nation and the country and even with the world, no matter they were born after the royal family or famous military generals, in the 21st century today they are all new socialist youth.It is not only shouldering the mission of carrying forward the national spirit and revitalizing China, but also shouldering the important task of improving ourselves and connecting with the world.Although China’s 1.4 billion population is composed of 56 ethnic groups with different cultures, under different backgrounds, it shows the unity that shocks the world. Isn’t this the best embodiment of national integration?FIG. 14 Such a harmonious era, who would care about a hundred years ago royal descendants, dressed in flag strutting through the streets?As the saying goes, “Ten years of grief and joy like a dream, stroking and exclaiming each other, the past all fly smoke.”The inheritance of national culture is not to inherit bad habits, promote national complex, not to restore the old system, life is like a fleeting moment, in this long river of history, always survival of the fittest more than mechanically copy, when the emperor’s past smoke.
