Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Empress Jiang Jiangui was an empress of the Chinese dynasty Liu Song. Her husband was Emperor Houfei of Liu Song (Liu Yu). Jiang Jiangui came from a noble lineage, as her grandfather Jiang Zhiyuan was a famed, albeit not particularly powerful, official during the reign of Emperor Xiaowu, but who died in fear in 463 after offending Emperor Xiaowu over the issue of the posthumous name for his favorite concubine Consort Yin. Jiang Jiangui's father Jiang Jiyun was a mid-low level official in the imperial administration as well, but died by 470, when Liu Yu's father Emperor Ming was selecting a wife for him, who was then crown prince.
