https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wang_Zhenfeng

He Lingwan (445-October 24, 461) [1], a native of the Northern and Southern Dynasties, was the first wife of Liu Ziye, the former deposed emperor of the Liu Song Dynasty.

He Lingwan’s mother is Liu Xinnan, Princess Yuzhangkang, the daughter of Liu Yumei, and his father is He Yu. His brother He Mai is married to Princess Liu Yingmei of Xincai, the daughter of Emperor Wen Liu Yilong. The He family and the Liu family have a deep marriage relationship.

In the third year of Xiaojian (456), Emperor Xiaowu Liu Jun chose to marry He Lingwan as the crown prince. However, He Lingwan passed away in the Huiguang Hall of the East Palace at the age of seventeen, and was given the posthumous title of Concubine Xian. Therefore, Liu Jun chose Yang Zhan’s daughter as Yang Liangdi and Yuan Senghui’s daughter as Yuan Baolin for the prince. After Liu Ziye ascended the throne, he posthumously named He Lingwan Queen Xian. After Liu Ziye was killed, Liu Yu buried He Lingwan with Liu Ziye.

Artist’s Note

“五南朝,宋。我是宋前废帝刘子业的皇后,何令婉。我活着将不堪忍受。刘子业当太子时,因我生的国色天香,颇为宠爱。可我命短只做了五年太子妃,便死于东宫。年仅17岁。刘子业登位追册
为,献皇后。”
