The Ming Dynasty was a dynasty with a high concentration of imperial power, and all power was attributed to the emperor. But Zhu Zhanjiying died early, and Zhu Qizhen, who was only 8 years old, could not assume the heavy responsibility of governing the country, so the entire empire was temporarily inThe state of headless dragons.
