During the trial, the emperor was unconscious and the empress took charge of the situation, seizing the chance to rid herself of those she did not like.
When the emperor finally regained his faculties, he asked for his favourite Concubine Cáo, only to be told she was also executed for being aware of the plot but failing to report it.
Whether the Jiajing emperor achieved this score is not known, though he certainly had a jolly good try, for it is recorded that he recruited considerable numbers of girls of ten or eleven years of age into the palace.

But an incapable emperor, with a couple of treacherous ministers, and a group of corrupted Confucian scholars, full of the notions of social hierarchy, were sufficient to betray the whole state.

 The Empress' New Clothes: A Daoist Ordination Scroll and Female Authority in the Ming period   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
It is comparable in scale to the eighty-five foot commemorative handscroll depicting Zhang's nephew and political nemesis, the Jiajing Emperor's (1522-1566) imperial procession to the Ming tombs in the mid-16th century.
Similarly, the daughters of Wu's son, the deposed Emperor Ruizong, were ordained as a filial gesture when Empress Wu died in 710, and to escape the vicious politics of the Tang court.
This is further suggested by the Jiajing Emperor's attempt to eliminate female nuns and priests and shut down their temples and nunneries in 1527; the same year that Empress Zhang received the title of ``Imperial Aunt''.

 China History Forum, chinese history forum > Emperor HongZhi (1464-1505)
Dec 19 2005, 09:39 PM Personally i will not regard Emperor Cheng Hua as one of the great emperors but instead one of the worst of the Ming Dynasty as he had relied too greatly on the Eunuchs especially when he established 西產and further appointed the Eunuch 汪直 as its adminstrator.
The only thing was Hongzhi lived too short a life, IMO he can be listed as one of the better emperors but not great and infact he was the last of the better emperors of the Ming Dynasty as after he died, the rest of the Ming emperors were practically good for nothing.
The fact is he wasn't a hardworking enough emperor to be justified as a "good" emperor and the fact that he allowed so much injustice to happen shows for itself.

Zhu Jianshen, the Chenghua emperor (1447-1464-1487), was succeeded by his eldest surviving son Zhu Youtang, the Hongzhi emperor (1470-1487-1505).
Succession then passed to Zhu Houzong, the Jiajing emperor (1507-1521-1567), a grandson of the Chenghua emperor: Zhu Houzong's father, Zhu Youyuan, was the fourth son of the Chenghua emperor.
When Zhu Houzong became emperor in 1521 at the age of 15, one of his first struggles was to legitimize his rule by giving his own family (his mother Empress Jiang in particular) supremacy over the family of the deceased emperor.

In Ming rites at the Confucian temple at the Imperial Academy, however, no such resemblance obtained between the emperor and the spirit of Confucius, or between the contrived image of the Sage (which was the product of the artisan's imagination) and the age's ineffable spirit itself, which was mysterious beyond ordinary understanding.
The successive additions of new scenes may reflect shifts in official and popular conceptions of Confucius and in the treatment of his cult, as well as a deliberate manipulation of his image for polemical purposes in the factional struggles among officials and between officials and eunuchs.

The mark is the phonetic equivalent of the Chinese reignmark, "Jiajing nian zhi" (made in the reign of Jiajing [1522-1566]).
Since all three vessels are decorated in the style of the Zhengde reign, and yet have 'Phagspa marks corresponding to the Jiajing reign mark, it is probable that they were produced in the first years of the latter period.
Furthermore, the Jiajing emperor's growing obsession with the Daoist religion (at the expense of the influence of the Buddhist church) would have made such a gift unlikely late in his reign.

The usual impression of Daoism is that it was mainly followed by the common people and by itinerant priests, while the Emperor and the court bureaucracy were followers of Confucian rules of statecraft.
Little's lecture will present little known or newly discovered works of art that show that several emperors during the Ming dynasty (1368-1644) were strong believers in Daoist gods and practices.
Examples of this practice include the Yongle emperor's (1403-1424) veneration of the Daoist god Zhenwu, Supreme Emperor of the Dark Heaven (Xuantian shangdi), and the single-minded devotion of the Jiajing emperor (1522-1566) to religious Daoism and alchemy.

The question of which Confucians of later ages would be enshrined in the temple was controversial because it raised such issues as which commentaries on the Confucian canon were acceptable and, by the Song, who was believed to have received the true transmission of the Dao from Kongzi and Mengzi (Mencius).
In addition to elevating the figure of Kongzi to ever greater status, emperors also conferred hereditary titles of nobility upon his descendants, initially as marquises, and by Song times as dukes; a position Kongzi's descendants held until the 1940s.
This pantheon was headed by Heaven, to which only the emperor offered sacrifices at an altar in the southern suburbs of the imperial city, followed by Earth, which received sacrifices at an altar in the northern suburbs.
