Now twenty years have passed, and these eight hundred dead soldiers have grown to an extremely terrifying level.
"Okay, I will keep the token first and return it to you later." Lu Chen did not refuse.
Although he now has Li Qingcheng's support, he is still far behind compared to the remnants of the Dragon Guard Pavilion.
Now, with the addition of Lu Tianba's eight hundred dead soldiers, the two sides can be considered capable of fighting.
At this time, a shout suddenly came from outside the door.
Li Yishuang, who had left before, came back again and hurriedly walked into the mourning hall.
Lu Chen immediately put on a mask, pretended to be a guard, and stood aside.
He could confess to Lu Tianba because of the trust between brothers. As for Li Yishuang, he did not yet have his approval.
"Mom, didn't I tell you to go rest? Why are you back again?" Lu Tianba was a little surprised.
"Something happened outside!"
Li Yishuang walked into the mourning hall and said solemnly: "I just received news that half of the eight princes have proclaimed themselves kings. From now on, they will no longer obey the palace's orders. Moreover, they have assembled their troops and are preparing to confront the palace head-on. !”
"What? Proclaiming yourself king? They are so brave!"
Hearing this, Lu Tianba's face became extremely gloomy: "They started to rebel just after my father passed away. Are they really bullying everyone in my palace? Mom! Please call for soldiers immediately. I will personally lead the troops to suppress them!"
If it was just a small fight, it could be treated as if it never happened. Now that the four major princes have established themselves as kings, it is no less than an open rebellion. Naturally, it is intolerable!
Li Yishuang quickly stopped him and said: "The four major princes all hold heavy troops. Once a war breaks out, life will be ruined. Moreover, the Black Dragon Army still needs to guard the major fortresses. If there is civil strife, the Western barbarians will definitely take the opportunity to invade. By then, the entire Xiliang will be In dire straits!”
"Then what should we do? Is it possible to let them pee while riding on our heads?" Lu Tianba frowned.
"I have sent envoys to negotiate. First, try to appease them as much as possible. After your father's funeral is arranged, you will immediately succeed to the throne and become the new King of Xiliang. If those guys understand the current situation, they will naturally submit. "Li Yishuang said.
"Mom, I'm afraid it's not that simple."
Lu Tianba shook his head and said thoughtfully: "It's probably not a coincidence that the four major princes rebelled at the same time, but someone is secretly manipulating it. They obviously want to force us to abdicate!"

"You mean, someone instigated the four major princes to rebel at the same time?" Li Yishuang frowned.
"That's right!" Lu Tianba said solemnly: "There is only one person in Xiliang who can make the four major princes obey their advice."
"Lu Zhiyuan!" Li Yishuang blurted out.
"My third uncle is very ambitious and the city is very deep. He wants to use the hands of the four princes to force us to hand over the military symbols."
Lu Tianba narrowed his eyes and analyzed: "If we don't obey, the four major princes will rebel and force us to send troops to quell the chaos, and then they will hinder us and make our deployment unfavorable.
Once we fail to quell the rebellion, the majesty of the palace will be greatly damaged. When the people complain, he will appear as a savior, save the people from fire and water, and successfully conquer the four princes.
By that time, he will be supported by all people and become an uncrowned king.
As the saying goes, he who wins the hearts of the people wins the world. When Lu Zhiyuan reaches the same level as his father, he will naturally become the new King of Xiliang! JrNovels.com
