Does the "Nine Dragons Carrying the Coffin" in the novel exist? An ancient tomb in China confirms its real existence

The third uncle of the Southern School, whose real name is Xu Lei, is from Jiaxing, Zhejiang. He is a well-known writer and screenwriter in China. Among all his works, perhaps the most impressive to the public is the "Tomb Notes" series, which has also been made into web dramas and movies. In the series, there is a part called "Genting Tiangong", which mentions "Nine Dragons Carrying a Coffin". In fact, "Nine Dragons Carrying the Coffin" appears in many tomb robbers novels. Because the novel is fictitious, many people think that "Nine Dragons Carrying the Coffin" is fake. However, this view is wrong. Archaeologists really discovered the "Nine Dragons Carrying Coffin" in Changbai Mountain in China.

A few years ago, archaeologists discovered an ancient tomb in Changbai Mountain. After entering the underground palace, they saw "Nine Dragons Carrying a Coffin", which shocked them. However, "Nine Dragons Carrying the Coffin" does not mean that the nine dragons are carrying the coffin, but the nine dragons are engraved on the coffin. These nine dragons are different from the dragons people usually see. They are new dragons created by ethnic minorities. A dragon has as many feet as a centipede, but the dragon body is a snake body. The coffin is surrounded by very toxic insects, preventing outsiders from approaching, protecting the coffin and the owner.


In addition, the shape of the coffin is different from the ordinary one. It is a regular octagon, and each corner is supported by a dragon, and a dragon surrounds the eight dragons to make the coffin more stable. So, who is the owner of this weird coffin?



After careful inspection and review of historical books, archaeologists discovered that the owner of the corpse coffin was King Pu Xian Wannu, the founder of the Eastern Xia Kingdom. He was originally a general in the last years of the Jin Dynasty, a member of the Jurchen tribe. In October 1214, Jin Xuanzong ordered him to lead his army to attack Yeluliu. The following year, Pu Xian Wannu was defeated and fled to Liaoyang, Liaoning. Seeing that the Jin Dynasty had declined, in order to revive Jurchen, he established himself as a king in the eastern Liaoning region, and his country name was "Dazhen", which was later changed to Dongxia.

At the beginning of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, Dongxia was in a very difficult situation and was besieged by the Jin Dynasty, Mongolia, and Xiliao. In order to get rid of this situation, in 1216, Pu Xian Wannu sent his son Tie as a hostage to Mongolia, and Qu descended to Mongolia. After the Mongolian army retreated, he became independent again. Under his management, Dongxia gradually became stronger and its territory greatly expanded.


Nanjing City, the capital of the Eastern Xia Dynasty, is located in Chengzi Mountain at the junction of Yanji City and Tumen City. The mountainous area here can effectively prevent the invasion of Mongolia. There are a large number of relics of the Eastern Xia Kingdom and a small number of relics of the Bohai Kingdom in the city. Pu Xian Wannu once lived in the city. However, the Eastern Xia Kingdom is a new regime after all, where is Mongolia's opponent. In 1233, the Mongol army invaded the city of Nanjing and Pu Xianwannu was captured. Some people say that he was defeated and killed. At this point, Eastern Xia was destroyed, and the country was established for about 18 years. Therefore, many people do not know the history of this small country.

After Pu Xianwannu's death, he was buried in Changbai Mountain in the highest funeral ceremony of the Eastern Xia Kingdom, and he was used "Nine Dragons to Carry the Coffin" to show his noble status. The excavation of the tomb of Pu Xian Wannu proved the real existence of "Nine Dragons Carrying Coffins", and also let the world know that there was a small country called Dongxia in Chinese history. It is for historians to study the politics, economy and culture of Dongxia Kingdom. It provides important historical materials with unique and important value.
