After the pharaohs of ancient Egypt died, they all loved to make mummies. Their solid wood is not an Egyptian patent. It is just a way of preserved corpses. Some South Americans and Europeans have some mummies. They are not famous. Then, after the death of the Chinese emperor, Didn’t make a mummy? The only emperor in China who was made into a mummy was Liao Taizong Yelu Deguang. In 927 AD, the 25-year-old Yelu Deguang became the second emperor of the Liao Kingdom, and he dreamed of engulfing the Central Plains.
In 947 AD, the 45-year-old Yelu Deguang was infected with a fever on his way to the Central Plains. At this time, the Taiyuan of the Liaodu Shangjing came to the predecessor: “To see people, to see the dead.” This can be difficult to break the minister of civil and military, accompanied by the summer, it is easy to save the body?
A royal chef had an idea: simply make the emperor a “squat”: the northern nomads liked to eat beef and mutton, sometimes after killing a cow or sheep, they couldn’t eat it for a while, and when they hit the summer, the herdsmen put the cattle and sheep. The viscera is hollowed out, and on the salt brine, it becomes a “clam” that does not rot, equivalent to the “bacon” in the Central Plains.
This idea came out, although there was the meaning of treating the emperor as a livestock, but in desperation, the Minister of Civil and Military Affairs and the Taiji had to follow the advice of the chef, so Yelu Deguang became the only mummy emperor in the history of our country.
