Empress Shi (Xin Dynasty)


Empress Shi (Xin Dynasty)

Empress Shi (史皇后, personal name unknown) was an empress during Xin Dynasty. She married emperor Wang Mang, in spring 23, as his Xin Dynasty was crumbling. Despite that, he married her as a public show of confidence. She was the daughter of one of his officials, Shi Chen (史諶).

In autumn 23, Xin Dynasty's capital Chang'an fell to agrarian rebels, who were seeking to reestablish Han Dynasty. Emperor Wang Mang died in the battle for the main palace, Weiyang Palace. It is not known what happened to Empress Shi, although it is known that her father Shi Chen surrendered to the Han forces but was still executed.
