Records of the Three Kingdoms biographyEdit
Lady Wang of the ruler of Wu [Sun] Quan, was a native of Langye 琅邪 [commandery]. The Lady was selected to enter the palace and during the Huangwu 黃武 years[n 1] she became favoured and gave birth to [Sun] He 和. She was the favourite, second to Lady Bu 步氏.
After Lady Bu died, He was made heir-apparent (tàizǐ 太子), and Quan was going to make the Lady his empress. However the Princess Quan 全 [Sun Luban 孫鲁班, wife of Quan Zong 全琮] had always detested the Lady and slandered her little by little. When Quan was lying sick in bed, she said the Lady [Wang] was looking happy. Consequently, he became very angry, and the Lady died of worries because of that. When He's son [Sun] Hao 皓 was made ruler, he gave the Lady the posthumous title Empress Dayi (Dàyì huánghòu 大懿皇后; literally “Empress of Great Exemplarity”) and appointed her three younger brothers as full marquises.
-  Book of Wu 吳書 states: Lady Wang's father was named Lujiu 盧九.
- ↑ GJCM notes: the years of Huangwu were from 222-229. Huangwu means “Martial Yellow”. At the time Sun Quan was the emperor.
