Yizheng is a county-level city under the jurisdiction of Yangzhou Prefecture City. It was said that Yizheng, used as the city name, was granted by the Emperor Zhenzon of the North Song Dynasty. As surprised to the true natures of statues he ordered to mould in a hill of the ancient town, the emperor was pleasant to name the statues with “Yizhen” and therefore the town took it as its own name. But the name was changed or replaced twice as it pronounced the same vocal sound with two emperors’ names, which was against the law in the time that nobody could have a name pronounced the same with an emperor’s.
