In Chinese history, one of the most horrific and cruel customs is burial (burying the dead to worship).
In the Qin Han Dynasty, funerals were extremely popular. According to the opinion of the ancients, burial is a way to ensure that the dead, even to the afterlife, will always be serviced and live happily as they did when they were alive. In addition to burying everyday items or expensive jewelry, the rich and powerful also bury their animals or their followers in order to protect their tombs from being disturbed by later generations.
According to history books, there are many ways to force the burying complex with the emperor. In addition to the hanging method prevailing in the Ming Dynasty, there is also a method of drinking poison to prevent the people from being forced to mourn the protest and not suffer much torment.
Besides pressing poison, pouring mercury is also very common. According to folklore, a mercury poisoned person who died without being decayed, even though after hundreds of thousands of years, the figure was still young and alive. Those who were chosen were taken into a room, given anesthetic tea. Waiting for these bands to fall asleep, the eunuch will cut the skin on the top of the head into a cross. The executor took the copper spoon and poured each spoon of mercury into the cut. After pouring on a certain amount of mercury, stitches will be used with the needle. The work was completed when the concubines were poisoned with mercury and died.

There are also a number of other special types of funeral procedures, which are to apply anesthetic and then bind the hands and feet of the chosen person, break it into certain positions, then bury it alive. In many tombs, archaeologists also discovered female limbs with traces of tied ties, bent bodies, turned heads to an extremely strange side. Many times people also discovered the remains of children. Experts claim this is also a form of burial with the purpose of guarding the tomb.
Although burial is considered a barbaric act, in many situations, there are still active aristocratic bands to follow the emperor, such as Nop Cap Chich, the leader of the Female Chan tribe at the end of the Ming Dynasty. Except for Air Force A Ba Hoi that was forced to be buried, all 4 of his wives would commit suicide in order to follow. For them to die in the great khan is a right and an honor. The number of controversial burial cases of people living in archeology can be listed as follows:
According to history books, Qin Shi Huang Doanh Chinh is the emperor with the most concubines, the most burying female maiden. In her childhood, Tan Thuy Hoang once defeated a country, recruiting many more beautiful people. Because his gigantic harem lacked serious accommodation, he had to build more magnificent palaces.
When Qin Shi Huang died, all concubines who had followed him without children were not released but were buried. Many history books describe the scene when it was extremely tragic and horrible: "The cry shook the earth and sky, anyone who accidentally heard was also scared to fly." Sima Qian once described that the number of people buried in Qin Shi Huang was too numerous to count. In addition to the royal concubines, in the tomb of Qin Shi Huang there were many soldiers and workers participating in the process of building his tomb.

Minh Thai To - Chu Nguyen Chuong had 46 concubines to die after being buried. Except for 2 people who died before Thai To, the two sides of his tomb discovered that there were dozens of small tombs surrounding. Based on legends and histories, historians speculate this is the resting place of concubines concealed by Chu Nguyen Chuong.
According to legend, when Chu Nguyen Chuong buried, people set up a "battle spirit". On the same day, 13 large gates of the city were simultaneously opened to transport concubine coffins to the tomb. According to feng shui circles, this is a magic used to cover people's eyes when lowering the tomb. In this way one can fight against grave robbers. The tombs of the concubines were also used to distract the tomb thieves, helping the Emperor's natural sleep.
In order to comfort the families of the concubines, Zhou Yuanyang - the grandson of Zhou Yuanzhang, who was succeeded by Zhou Yuanzhang - also commended the reward after Zhou Yuzhang died. The big mandarins whose daughters were chosen to be buried under the king were all awarded "celestial protection" and "invention" and were allowed to inherit their children.
According to Korean historical records, the number of dead palaces according to Thanh Chu Chu Le was up to 30 people. The main method chosen was suicide and a collective hunger strike . Among them are two people paid by North Korea: Han Thi and Thi Thi. Until near the time of "suicide", Han Thi knelt toward Minh Nhan Tong and asked to be brought back to her homeland to take care of her old mother but failed.
At noon, more than 30 selected attendants were taken outside for a final meal, then taken to the temple. Referring to this scene, it has been described as "the cry that shook the court". In the electricity, there are 30 carefully arranged wooden planks, these concubines are standing on the wooden board, on the top are the "suicide" ropes that have been prepared: "Put the head in the irises, remove the wooden board, socks both broke their necks, choking and dying.
