Hello all,

Just here to say I've uploaded yet another translation! A translation of the biography of Empress Xuanmu 宣穆, perhaps better known as Zhang Chunhua 張春華.

Her original biography can be found in the History of Jin, chapter 31.
The translation can be found here!

As most of you probably know Zhang Chunhua was the wife of Sima Yi. She seemed very loyal to him, even killing their maid because she saw something that might put Sima Yi in danger. Also the mother of Sima Shi and Sima Zhao and grandmother of Sima Yan, founder of Jin.

I'm a bit surprised by Sima Yi's treatment of her towards the end of her life. It comes across as more tyrannical than I would have imagined.
