Zhen Ji's Marriage

Unread postby Marc » Tue Dec 23, 2003 9:08 pm

I heard Zhen Ji was forced into her marriage with Cao Pi. Is this true? IF so, who was she originally married to (if anyone).

I'm not sure if she was forced to marry Cao Pi or not....

But she was married to Yuan Shao's second son, Yuan Xi. After Cao's campaign against Yuan Shao, Yuan Xi was dead, and Cao Pi found Zhen Ji. Mesmerized by her beauty, he married her. :)

So what you're saying is that Cao Pi fell in love with her, and then he just made her his wife?

I think Yuan Xi just ran away from the city of Ye. He wasn't dead. Besides, she was a 5th rank concubine, he wouldn't have missed her. He was still alive 5 years after Cao Pi married her.
This topic is an affront to both The Man and The Son of the Man.

and this is the wife of Yuan Xi, his second son. She was of the Zhen family. When Yuan Xi was sent to command in Youzhou, her family objected to her going so far from home and she stayed behind


Quote from SGYY...

I guess that when Yuan Xi left for You, he left Zhen Ji behind I guess...

Hmm.. Yuan Xi was still alive...? Where did you get that info....?

Women in that time really couldn't prevent getting married since they had no real rights as such and that is why there is very little info. and resources about them.
So I don't think she was forced because Cao Pi loved her and she probably gradually fell in love with him she married of her own free will I assume but usually if I man wanted a wife then they would get one, heck, some of them laws are around today like in Turkey a man can have 2 wives.

But yeah, first husband was Yuan Xi then Cao Pi.

i think Zhen Ji would've been glad that someone wanted to marry her again after Yuan Xi left. Unless u were married a woman had zero prospects back them, so i guess her being taken as a trophy wife saved her ass.

I think Yuan Shao's wife is the one who gave Zhen Ji to Cao Pi. But being with Yuan Xi is no use better off with Cao Pi.

Kind of true, since SGZY mentions that Cao Pi had several wives. However, she is apparently good enough to him to be named Empress when he takes the throne.
