The Fragant Concubine

The Fragant Concubine. One legend says she was brought to China by the Emperor Qianlong from Uyghur. She was beautiful and had a captivating body scent but was terribly homesick and the emperor attempted to conquer her heart recreating her birthplace. When he plants a Jujube tree is when she fells in love with him. Is believed that the legend could have been based in an actual concubine from western China who entered the harem of the emperor in 1760 and who carried the court title of Rong Fei.
