After investigating, archaeologists determined that the owner of this tomb was Ly Tinh Huan, the granddaughter of Princess Lac Binh of the Sui dynasty.

When she died, she was only 9 years old. In history books it is recorded that, too surprised about the death of her niece, Empress Duong Le Hoa ordered Ly Tinh Huan to be buried with a larger coffin than Emperor Sui Van’s Emperor Duong Kien.

Ly Tinh Huan, his father’s name is Ly Man, and his mother’s name is Bac Chu princess, surnamed Vu Van Nga Anh. She was born into a powerful family, many generations of mandarins and had great prestige from the Northern Zhou to Dai Sui dynasties.

His grandfather was Ly Hien Phieu Ky, the great general of the Northern Zhou Dynasty; Patriarch Ly Chong was a great general, when he was young, he stood on an equal footing with Emperor Sui Chu Vu, later he and Emperor Duong Kien together won power together, becoming the main mandarin of the Sui dynasty, after three years. 583) Sui Dynasty was established, in a battle against foreign invaders, he died. Ly Chong is Ly Man’s father.

Emperor Van Duong Kien remembered Ly Sung’s love for many glorious victories, sacrificed for the country, so for Ly Man, he was also very fond of him, as a child Ly Man was raised in the palace.

According to Sui Shu records in 573, Duong Le Hoa married the crown prince Vu Van Uan and later Northern Zhou Xuan De, but the emperor did not treat her well. Duong Le Hoa and Emperor Tuyen had only one daughter, Vu Van Nga Anh, later the mother of Ly Tinh Huan.

The sarcophagus, also known as the box made of stone to preserve the body of Ly Tinh Huan, was skillfully crafted by the Empress, a famous craftsman at that time, in the style of a palace. The dome of the sarcophagus is also meticulously carved. When archaeologists discovered it, they said that the value of this sarcophagus could not be estimated.

In the sarcophagus, archaeologists also discovered a large number of other valuable items. Because the owner is a 9-year-old girl, most of the items are exquisitely designed jewelry, especially the necklace made with pearl gems. Besides, there are so many precious gems in this sarcophagus that archaeologists are shocked because the value cannot be estimated. Currently, this precious necklace is being preserved in the National Museum of China.

In addition, there is a treasure found in the tomb that is an oval glass bottle that makes archaeologists roll their eyes because the ancient glass blowing technology is unmatched. However, after all, there was an incident that made everyone shudder when they discovered that on the lid of the sarcophagus there were 4 words “false declaration of death”, meaning that if anyone opens it, they will die creating a more mystery about the sarcophagus. this ancient tomb. Many archaeologists believe that is why this tomb has survived for more than 1400 years without being stolen just because of the 4 inscriptions on the lid of the sarcophagus.

During her lifetime, Princess Lac Binh loved her granddaughter, Ly Tinh Huan. But the girl unfortunately died prematurely. The loss of her beloved niece made Princess Lac Binh extremely sad. To comfort her granddaughter, she built Ly Tinh Huan’s tomb which is extremely magnificent and beautiful, inside the tomb also put in a lot of treasures, with the belief that, even in the afterlife, her granddaughter She still enjoys wealth and honor.

An extremely valuable “treasure” was taken from an ancient tomb.

Although carving such a warning curse on the coffin was just an ancient trick to prevent tomb robbers, archaeologists still can’t help but shudder when they see it.

It seems that this scary inscription also worked when the tomb of little Ly Tinh Huan was extremely magnificent, magnificent, with many treasures but remained intact until it was excavated by archaeologists.

The curse of “opening will die”, sounds creepy, but it reflects Duong Le Hoa’s absolute love for Ly Tinh Huan. The Sui dynasty was a pro-Buddhist dynasty in ancient China. When Emperor Van Duong Kien was still in office, he was a devout Buddhist. People come from the heart to the Buddha’s fear and belief in the devil.
