About the Four Beauties

These were four Chinese women, renowned for their beauty. Few historical records exist so much of what is known today has been greatly embellished by legend. They exercised influence over kings and emperors and impacted Chinese history. Three brought kingdoms to their knees, and the lives of all four ended in tragedy or under mysterious circumstances. They lived in four different dynasties, hundreds of years apart.

The Four Great Beauties lived in four different dynasties, each hundreds of years apart. In chronological order, they are:

  • Xi Shi (c. seventh to sixth century BC, Spring and Autumn Period), said to be so entrancingly beautiful that fish would forget how to swim and sink away from the surface when she walks by.
  • Wang Zhaojun (c. first century BC, Western Han Dynasty), said to be so beautiful that her appearance would entice birds in flight to fall from the sky.
  • Diaochan (c. third century, Late Eastern Han/Three Kingdoms period), said to be so luminously lovely that the moon itself would shy away in embarrassment when compared to her face.
  • Yang Guifei (719–756, Tang Dynasty), said to have a face that puts all flowers to shame.
