Empress Dowager He, personal name unknown, was an empress dowager during the reign of her son Sun Hao, the fourth and last emperor of Eastern Wu during the Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history. She was from Danyang Commandery, roughly modern Xuancheng, Anhui). Her father He Sui was a cavalry soldier in the army of the Eastern Wu founder Sun Quan. One day, when Sun Quan was examining the troops, he noticed that she was peeking out and looking at the troops. He found her unusual, and gave her to his son Sun He as a consort. In 242, the same year that Sun He was created crown prince, she gave birth to his oldest son, Sun Hao. Sun He, due to the machinations of many powerful people at court, was deposed in 250 and reduced to commoner status. In 252, he was created the Prince of Nanyang, with his fief at Changsha. However, after Sun Jun became regent for his brother, the emperor Sun Liang, in 253, Sun Jun forced him to commit suicide.show more
