Reanalysis of the Reasons Accounting for the Princess' Difficulty to Marry in Mid and Late Tang Dynasty：Seen from their belief in Taoism together at the beginning of Tai He Period
- 2013年 
【中文摘要】太和年间，李唐王室有四位公主先后入道，但她们的入道并不是为了追求自由自在的生活方式，而是因为婚姻问题不能及时解决。安康和义昌公主入道也可能与婚姻不能顺利解决有关。除这几位公主之外，中晚唐时期的公主多有大龄方婚和至死未婚者，说明当时公主难嫁是一个普遍的现象。公主难嫁的主要原因并不是因为她们放纵跋扈、不守礼仪，也不是流行门阀婚姻使然，而是由于公主婚姻政策的改变，政局混乱、礼会院不修，加上宫廷政变频发，很多公主在成长过程中缺少正常的家庭关怀而导致的。 【Abstract】At the beginning of Tai He period, there were four princesses believe in Taoism together.
