Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Guo N wang (184 - 235), formally known as Empress WendeThe Civil and Virtuous Empress, was an empress of Cao Wei during the Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history. She was married to Cao Pi (Emperor Wen), the first emperor of Cao Wei. Her father Guo Yong came from a line of minor local officials. When she was young, she was known for her intelligence, and her father, impressed by her talent, gave her the unusual name N wang ("queen"). Her parents died when she was five, however, and she became a servant at the household of one Marquess of Tongdi. It is not known how it came about, but she eventually became a concubine of Cao Pi when he was the crown prince of the Principality of Wei, under his father Cao Cao. She quickly became a favorite-so much so that he began to neglect his wife Lady Zhen, who was also known for her beauty. She gave Cao Pi shrewd political advice during the succession controversy that pitted Cao Pi against his brothers.show more
