*She died in approximately 1200 BC

Military general, high priestess, estate owner, and one of the many wives of Emperor Wu Ding of the Shang Dynasty. She was held in incredibly high esteem by both her husband and the Chinese people. Her tomb was discovered in 1976 and was one of the few Chinese tombs to ever be discovered un-looted. Besides the thousands of items found in the tomb she was also given sixteen people (who were likely killed in human sacrifice) to act as aids to her in the afterlife.
