Too many cattle died in the Three Kingdoms Shu Han Dynasty?

There are three main reasons why later generations talked about the defeat of Shu: first, there were no successors in the political arena of Shu after Zhugeliang; Second, Liu Chan, the late leader, was fatuous; Third, general Jiang Wei was careless. He didn’t garrison enough troops in the dark and dangerous places, so Deng AI of the state of Wei stole the way… In my opinion, these three kinds of judgments are more or less self clever.

Zhugeliang actually attached great importance to the cultivation of successors, but his standards should include morality (loyalty to the Liu regime), knowledge (overall view) and talent (ability). From this point of view, it is natural that Wei Yan will not be reused (because he is too arrogant and lacks an overall view). It makes sense that Ma Su was once valued (the essence of the Jieting defeat was to underestimate the enemy, which was a technical error). Zhugeliang’s successors, Jiang Wan and Fei Yi, were both masters of statecraft and had great talents. When Kongming died, chaoye felt that the world had collapsed. After Jiang Wan took office, he did not look sad or happy. His behavior was the same as usual, and soon stabilized people’s hearts. This is somewhat the style of Zhugeliang in the fictional “anjuping fifth road” in romance, storytelling and drama.

Fei Yi was not only appreciated by Kongming, but also by Sun Quan when he was sent to the eastern Wu. He even gave him his own sword. In the age of Zhugeliang, Fei Yi was famous for being good at making peace and maintaining harmony between Wei Yan and Yang Yi, the grumpy enemies. However, after the death of Kongming, Wei and Yang were listed by Fei Yi for raising troops without authorization and complaining about the imperial court, which played a key role in determining their fate.

Politics is team play. So when Zhugeliang was alive, he found a lot of spare tires. In addition to supporting Jiang, Fei and Jiang Wei, as well as Ma Su and Yang Yi who played badly, there were also Dong Yun, dengzhi, Ma Zhong and Wang Ping, all of whom had acted as agents of state politics and supreme military command in varying degrees during the period of Jiang Wan and Fei Yi, and most of them were scrupulous in their duties. However, the dilemma they faced was the same as that faced by Zhugeliang: the number of troops was too small, and it was decreasing year by year. In addition, because of geography and transportation, food and grass were often not available. When the empress surrendered, it was said that the army of the whole country was only over 100000 people. At this time, there were 180000 troops of the state of Wei attacking Shu!

After Zhugeliang, Shu could still survive for 30 years under the disadvantage of Wei and Wu. In addition to the talents left by Zhugeliang, the rule of Liu Chan, the late leader, was also a great contribution. Liu Chan succeeded to the throne at the age of 17 and lived under the control of the powerful Prime Minister Zhugeliang for 11 years. After Zhugeliang’s death, he officially took office, abolished the prime minister system, and established a system of checks and balances between the great general and the great Sima. For a long time, he was not allowed to set up a temple for Kongming, but was able to reuse the talents and descendants recommended by him in those years… All these prove that Liu Chan is not a rookie in playing politics and management.

The reason for the subjugation of Shu Han was not only that the country was weak and taxes were heavy, but also that there were too many ox people. During the period of Liu Bei, pangtong, Fazheng and Zhugeliang were on an equal footing, but the three masters had a clear understanding of each other’s strengths, and they also cooperated happily; Unfortunately, Pang Tong and FA Zheng, who were good at military affairs, died young. Liu Bei also died a few years after he entered Sichuan. The foundation of the Dynasty basically depended on Zhugeliang, who was not good at military affairs. Shu is not without military talents. Li Yan was praised by Kongming as “not inferior to Lu Xun”. Of course, there are Wei Yan and others. But these people are all warlords and lack overall thinking. It is impossible for Zhugeliang not to do it himself. The important task of the prime minister in wartime, coupled with his early death, made Zhugeliang not have the opportunity to provide Liu Chan with military and political training. Although Liu Chan was shrewd and took charge of the overall situation after he took office, he prevented the emergence of powerful officials in Shu like Wei and Wu, but he was in the adjustment of state affairs and interpersonal relations all the year round, and gradually became lazy.

In the absence of strong military and political leaders with a view to the overall situation, the monarchy is safe, but it is difficult to unify the government and order in case of crisis. Before Wei’s invasion of Shu, general Jiang Wei was eager to express Liu Chan’s intention to strengthen the garrison at Yangping pass and Yinping. However, Jiang’s reputation was at an all-time low because of the loss of national strength in successive years. In addition, eunuchs had been involved in politics, and even his fathers-in-law had become great men. Jiang’s suggestions naturally fell flat. Liu Chan’s subjugation was natural. Fortunately, he lived under the strict supervision of Zhugeliang when he was young. It should not be too difficult for him to adapt to the supervision of cheese mazhao.
