Wang Zhaojun was also called Wang Qiang. With elegant bearing and good looks, she was a famous beauty in Chinese history. In the early period of Emperor Yuan’s reign, she was chosen into the palace. As she refused to win the emperor’s favor by bribing the portrait painter, she was left in the cold. In the first year of Jingning, Chieftain Huhanye of Xiongnu was presented at court to see Emperor Yuan. He proposed a marriage to the Han Dynasty on condition that he would defend peace in the border areas. Emperor Yuan accepted his proposal and Wang Zhaojun offered herself to be married to the chieftain. After she went to Xiongnu north of Great Wall, Zhaojun was designated as Queen of Ninghu. She bore some children. After death, she was buried in Xiongnu, and her grave was called the “Green Tomb”. In the Jin Dynasty, Zhaojun was renamed “Bright Consort”. Her marriage to the chieftain cemented relations between the Han Dynasty and Xiongnu, and there was no war in the border areas in the following fifty years. It strengthened the national unity between Han and Xiongnu, which was highly appreciated in history and became a much-told story.
