Chapter 3 is on the early reign of Mingzong. He has promoted men aligned to his priorities to his council and further involved civil officials in the social life of the capital. In 927, Mingzong announced his tour to Kaifeng, which turned into a year long stay. A month later, mutiny broke out in the city and although the it was suppressed soon, it also lead to the dismissal of Ren Huan. Conflicts between Mingzong and his two biological sons Congrong and Conghou were also brewing and his relationship with An Chonghui became increasingly strained in his earlier reign.
