Cao Guojiu Imperial Uncle Magical Oil
Cao Guojiu, literally Imperial Brother-in-law Cao, is a Chinese mythological
figure and one of the Eight Immortals in the Taoist pantheon. His real name
was Cao Yi while his courtesy name was Jingxiu, and he was better known
to his contemporaries as Cao Jingxiu.
Cao Guojiu is believed to be a descendant of Cao Bin, a general of the early
Song dynasty, and a younger brother of Empress Cao, the wife of Emperor
Renzong of the Song dynasty. As none of Emperor Renzong's sons survived
their father, the emperor designated a younger male relative, who later became
Emperor Yingzong, as his successor. As such, Cao could not have been a maternal
uncle of Emperor Yingzong, so his "Imperial Uncle" status seemed ambiguous.
However, as the Chinese character jiu (舅), which means "maternal uncle
also mean "wife's brother", it is believed that the latter meaning should apply
to Cao. In other words, Cao was the "Imperial Brother-in-Law" of Emperor
Renzong rather than an "Imperial (Maternal) Uncle" of any Song dynasty emperor.
Cao's younger brother, Cao Jingzhi (曹景植), abused his relationship with the
imperial family by bullying others and engaging in corrupt practices. Cao tried
to persuade his brother to change his ways but he did not listen. In the meantime,
he also used his family fortune to help the poor and tried to make up for his
brother's misdeeds. One day, Cao Jingzhi was accused by other officials in the
imperial court of corruption and abuse of power. Cao felt so ashamed and
disappointed by his brother's misconduct that he gave up his official career a
nd went to the countryside to lead a reclusive life. During this time, he met
the immortals Zhongli Quan and Lü Dongbin, who taught him Taoist magical
arts. After many years of practice and cultivation, Cao himself also became
