Discussing Political Activity and Its Influence of the Grandson Mowgli in the Early Tang Dynasty
Abstract: The Tang Dynasty is a momentous period in the Chinese history, the establishment and develop-ment of which has a profound impact on later ages. Grandson Mowgli is an indispensable figure, being active on the political stage during the periods of Wude and Zhenguan of Tang Dynasty. He first came to prominence after Xuanwu Gate Incident. He presided over the edit of Zhenguan Lv, which laid a foundation for the feudal norms of Chinese criminal law. He assisted Emperor Taizong in dealing with ethnic relations, promoting economical development and maintaining national unity. He pledged loyalty to Emperor Jin and spared no effort in assisting him in governing the country. All his political activities had significant impacts on the early period of Tang’s political situation, including both positive effects and negative effects. His action in Xuanwu Gate Incident, to some extent, was a challenge to the hereditary system. Thus, the law revised was of great significance to the ancient norm of criminal law. However, in the event of choosing the crown prince, his greed for power can be reflected. In the late period of Taizong, he still owned Taizong’s trust, but he was lack of the bravery of expostulation.
