Fate of Gongdi (Later Zhou)?

In this article, Song Taizu sent the deposed Gongdi and his mother away. And he continued to treat the former royal family (House of Chai) with respect. However, the short (stub) article on Gongdi suggests he was executed shortly after the palace coup. Since these versions are contradictory, they can't possibly both be true. Is there a reliable source on Song Taizu's early reign we can use to verify either of these stories? 24.69.171.49 (talk) 20:48, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Circles around Taizu's eyes - is he wearing spectacles?[edit]

In the portrait showing him seated and dressed in white robes, there seem to be circles shown around his eyes. Could these possibly be spectacles? Did the Chinese know how to make lenses at this time? UBJ 43X (talk) 14:37, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
