The first heroine of China.
— Zhou Enlai, former Chinese Premier and former Minister of Foreign Affairs
Lady Xian lived during the Northern and Southern Dynasties, the most chaotic period in the history of ancient China. She was a heroine that lived through the Liang Dynasty (502-560), the Chen Dynasty (557-589) and the Sui Dynasty (581-618). During her life, Lady Xian strove to safeguard the country's territorial integrity and national unity, maintain stability and peace in the Lingnan region, promote local development of economy, culture, science, technology and its trade with ancient Maritime Silk Road countries in Southeast Asia.
She advocated openness and harmony which are important components of Lingnan culture. Her loyalty, devotion and kindness are the significant spiritual origin of China's tradition of grand unification.
Every New Year, Lady Xian displayed all the gifts she received from the emperors of all the dynasties in her courtyard. She remembered each of them which were the precious memories of her lifetime in pacifying Lingnan and maintaining national unity.
You should be loyal to the emperor. I have served the emperors of three dynasties with the same good heart. Now all the gifts are here, which is the retribution of loyalty and filial piety.
— The 45th biography of the 80th Volume of the Book of Sui
