My Backyard is the Tang Dynasty - Chapter 437
Chapter 442 – Gluttonous Country!
After visiting Bali for more than a month, Li Yin and his concubines returned to Chang’an. His next trip was to go to the Great Food Kingdom. In Li Yin’s current era, the Great Food Kingdom was very powerful at this time. The land area is almost equal to that of Datang, and even Persia in the west was almost annexed by the Great Food Kingdom. If it hadn’t been for Datang’s expedition to the west that attracted the attention of the Great Food Kingdom, the Sasanian Dynasty of the Persian Kingdom would have been destroyed by this time. Can’t live on until now, so in order to thank Li Min and connect with the land of Datang, Persia is extraordinarily respectful to Datang, and pays tribute to countless rare treasures every year.
In the morning, he had breakfast calmly. At noon, Li Min took Martha from the airport in Chang’an, and arrived at Dashi Kingdom in less than an hour. Surrendered to the Great Tang, and at this time the ruler of the Great Food Kingdom was Osman, one of the four caliphs of the Great Food Kingdom in history.
“Welcome the Emperor of Tang Dynasty to the Great Food Kingdom.” At the Medina Airport, the capital of the Great Food Kingdom, Osman brought the officials of the Great Food Kingdom to welcome Li Yin. The girl met after a year and was very happy.
In addition to Osman, Li Tong, the person in charge of Dashiguo, came to the airport. This is a management robot, and with him came the Terminator troops responsible for Li Yin’s safety. After all, although Osman unilaterally admitted defeat, However, those who opposed him did not accept it, but have been stubbornly resisting. Therefore, it can be said that Dashi’s domestic wars continue, and Datang merchants are often attacked by unknown people here. Among all the colonies, it can be said that Dashi is currently the least prosperous country. popular with businessmen. When they arrived at the palace, Osman had already prepared the banquet. Li Yin ate a sumptuous meal of exotic dishes, and followed the court etiquette of the Great Food Kingdom when he entered the country. At this time, Dashiguo believes in Muslim teachings, and almost everyone is a believer. Regarding this point, Li Yin fully expressed his views on religious freedom, because he understands that religion and belief are very complicated things. If it is good, it will lead to chaos. Instead of this, it is better to let them believe freely. Anyway, what Li Min wants is to rule.
“Your Majesty, Emperor Tang, the opponents in Egypt and Iraq still do not agree with my rule. My palace was surrounded by opponents yesterday. If General Li Tong hadn’t arrived in time, I’m afraid I would have been killed by them.” Withdraw After the banquet, Osman poured bitter water on Li Yin. Li Yin’s original expectation was to settle the matter of these two places peacefully, but now it seems that it is just his wishful thinking. He said: “Since this is the case, why should you continue to be patient, just wipe them out.”…
“It’s just that the strength of the two regions is strong. If they really fight, I’m afraid it will be a long war.” Osman sighed.
Li Yin understands what Osman is thinking. Osman admits that he has been acting as a shield for Li Yin after the defeat. Li Yin is also willing to use locals to deal with locals, but such a large-scale war is still a difficult decision for Osman, so this time he spent a lot of money. time and financial resources.
“For the peace of this region, I will dispatch the army, the army of the Great Food Kingdom, to destroy these rebels together.” Li Yin said, giving Osman a reassurance.
Hearing this, Osman showed a satisfied smile. Now he admits that it is a province of the Great Tang Empire, but he said that it will take time for the Great Food Kingdom to fully integrate into the Great Tang. Therefore, he is still selfish, “Thank you, His Majesty the Great Tang Emperor Your grace, so I can rest assured.”
Li Yin nodded slightly. The situation in the Great Food Kingdom gave him a headache. The assimilation here is extremely slow. The reason is religion, because destroying their culture is equivalent to destroying their religion. Their teachings record their Therefore, it is basically impossible to completely assimilate this place. Li Yin can only start from the rule. In the future, let him and Martha’s son inherit the position of caliph and continue the rule here. After several generations, the caliph here will be Basically, he only keeps a trace of the blood of the big cannibal, but he is also going to use some small methods.
“One more thing is that the war against the Eastern Roman Empire also needs to be prepared. Now Constantinople is facing internal and external difficulties. The Germans and Goths are constantly harassing Eastern Rome. It is time for us to start. “Li Yin is ready to restart the conquest of Europe.
Osman’s eyes suddenly shone with strange brilliance. To him, the Eastern Roman Empire was like a stumbling block on his way forward. The Great Food Kingdom had fought against the Roman Empire many times but they didn’t gain any advantage. Therefore, it was worth giving up the fat around him. In fact, Osman has always imagined that one day he can stand in the palace of Constantinople to accept the letter of surrender from the Romans, “This is really a wise choice. I am willing to lead the cavalry of the Great Food Kingdom to serve the emperor. “
Li Yin saw Ottoman’s expression and guessed his thoughts in an instant. However, although the conquest plan was restarted, Li Yin did not feel relaxed, because Europe in this period was really a barbaric and chaotic place. Tribes are everywhere, they don’t accept education, they only know how to herd and plunder, which will only be a factor of instability, but now that the country in Datang is peaceful and the people are safe, and the remaining energy of the army needs a place to vent, Li Yin decided to restart this plan.
After sitting in Dashi Kingdom for two months, Li Yin cooperated with Osman to clear his opponents. With the cooperation of satellites and terminators, it was not difficult to eliminate these people. The environment in Dashi Kingdom suddenly became clear. It turns out that business has obviously increased compared to the past, and Li Min’s name has also spread in the Great Food Kingdom. This magical oriental emperor has been recognized by many people.
It’s not that the people here agree with Li Yin’s actions to crack down on opponents, but that Li Yin has bought off many big figures in religion, just as not all believers are loyal, facing disloyal believers, the temptation of money and beauty The effect is astonishing, and these bribed people will beautify Datang’s rule as much as possible.
Li Yin did not expect such a small method to achieve such good results. He continued to increase investment. During this period, the kingship and theocracy were opposed and unified. He needed a religious leader who was willing to serve the court. From this point of view, he also You can make the Roman Catholic Church work for you, quickly and effectively.
The rule of Dashi Kingdom was further stabilized, and Li Yin returned to Chang’an with Martha, and spent two months alone with Li Yin. Mafa became more and more dependent on Li Yin, and Li Yin also showed his love for Martha. This made Osman’s loyalty to Li Yin thicker, and what Li Yin wanted was exactly this result. In the past, Li Yin was also very confused why Li Shimin suddenly had a hot fight with a certain concubine, but now he understands a little bit. Sometimes the emperor had to play tricks on the spot. In order to get the support of the forces behind the concubines, he had to be biased. If he got further support, he might have to give birth to a prince in exchange for trust.
