Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Empress Chu Lingyuan was the last empress of Jin Dynasty (265-420). Her husband was the last emperor of the dynasty, Emperor Gong (Sima Dewen). Chu Lingyuan was the daughter of the commandery governor Chu Shuang, who was a grandson of the official Chu Pou, making Chu Lingyuan a grandniece of Emperor Kang's wife Empress Chu Suanzi. It is not known exactly when she married Emperor Gong, but the marriage took place while he was the Prince of Langye, during the reign of his developmentally disabled brother Emperor An. After the regent Liu Yu killed Emperor An in 419 and made Sima Dewen emperor, she was created empress.
