The emperor, as the highest risk in ancient China, people envy and fear. Just as the curse of the blessing, the blessing of the disaster".

There are 209 generations of emperors who have the exact date of birth and death. These 209 people, the average life expectancy is only 39.2 years old.

It is pointed out that the average life expectancy of the ancient Chinese population is only 35 years old, so the average life expectancy of the emperor is not low.

However, the average life expectancy of 35 years includes a large number of aborted population. In fact, the low life expectancy in ancient times was mainly due to the high mortality rate of newborn infants. If this factor is removed, the average life expectancy of the ancient Chinese population could reach 57 years.

As is known to all, the man who is born to die cannot become emperor. Therefore, 57 minus the average life expectancy of the emperor of China is nearly lower than the average age of nearly 18 years old by the age of 39.2.

The reason for this life expectancy, nothing more than the following:

First, wife too much. We are the envy of the emperor's wife is more emperor's harem, but a kind of worry. We can get a rough estimate, half of women into emperor's harem are big background, some small brands are turning to the emperor. No tillage is not finished, only exhausted cattle.

Second, easy to be killed. The ancient emperor's non normal death rate is extremely high, Chinese dynasties count as Xixia, Dali and other countries, the historical record is called the emperor for a total of 611 people. Among them, 272 people died of non normal, accounting for nearly half of the proportion. What candlelight shadow, and then look at the emperor before the Qing Dynasty, which death is not a mystery?

Third, chaotic service traitional. The ancient emperors such as Qin Shihuang, hope to find some Taoist ever-young, Party Shilian eating some immortality is often, look at a few of the emperor of the Ming Dynasty, "Dan" is tried out, can never return.

Although the average life is very short, but there are still a few good long emperor, looking today is long.
