In the court, Zhang Zhidong was a minister with more power than a member of the first and second grades. His wife was naturally called a wife. Zhang Zhidong always wants to find a lady who can accompany him for a lifetime, but the reality is cruel. In the life of the three ladies are the first to go, Zhang Zhidong is also puzzled, why can't you have a wife who is accompanied by the old man?
Zhang Zhidong once figured himself for himself, but after all, he did not find out why. Later, he had to find a master of the art to confuse himself. In the end, the master of the technique broke the doubts of Zhang Zhidong for many years. It turns out that Zhang Zhidong’s life is too hard, and few people can enjoy the blessings brought by Zhang Zhidong, especially his wife. Zhang Zhidong finally understood after listening to it. Later, he only looked for Xiaoyan and never married his wife. Not to mention, Zhang Zhidong’s little sister can be safe and secure with Zhang.
At that time, Zhang Zhidong’s third wife died, and he felt that he could not hold his own nephew, Wang Rongrong, and he was against the royal family. He believes that his wife is killed by herself, that her life is too hard, and it is difficult for her wife to enjoy her blessings.
In the Gengzi Year, the Eight-Power Allied Forces attacked Beijing and Tianjin, but Wang Rongrong was appointed by the Cixi as the Minister of the Beijing Normal University. At this time, Zhang Zhidong, who served as Governor of Huguang, knew that his brother-in-law Wang Haorong had died soon. Sure enough, Wang Rongrong also sighed "This day and I died." But Wang Haorong still wants to fight the last breath to protect Daqing, because of the lack of weapons, write to Zhang Zhidong, and claim to "watch the street veterans", lament “There is no money to buy,” and Zhang’s “temporary armaments”.
However, the speed of the coalition's attack was quite fast. When it was attacked outside Beijing, the governor of Zhili committed suicide because of defeat. When attacking the Dongzhimen in the inner city of Beijing, the Qingmenmen guards also came to resist. However, the coalition forces not only have excellent weapons, but also use poison gas. In the end, the dry doorkeepers were beaten, and some even forced to be the guides of the coalition forces. It is the biggest shame in the history of the Qing Dynasty that the Qingmenmen guards gave guidance to the coalition forces.
