Ham Huong, also known as Dung Phi Hoa Trac Thi, was the concubine of Emperor Qianlong. According to legend, right from the moment she was born, her body exuded a fragrant scent like a flower. The fragrance on her body even overwhelmed the flowers and grass, attracting a flock of butterflies around her.

Beauties have bodies that radiate scent
Ham Huong was born into the Hoa Trac family, belonging to the Uyghur ethnic group, Xinjiang, so it is also called Hoa Trac Thi. Her brother is Tu Nhi Do, the 29th leader of Hoi Bo.
In 1760, after quelling the rebellion in Hoi Bo, Tu Nhi Du and his assistants arrived in Beijing, were warmly welcomed by King Qianlong and appointed the First Rank Great Good Officer. Do Nhi Do’s younger sister, who was 27 years old at that time, also entered the palace and was appointed a Noble Lady, Ham Huong. After reunifying Xinjiang, Qianlong immediately requested a marriage for political purposes.
There are also documents recorded that Ham Huong was admitted to the palace in 1756.
When she entered the palace, Hoa Trac Thi was 27 years old. Compared to the beautiful concubines entering the palace according to official regulations, she was indeed old.

However, thanks to her beautiful beauty, graceful figure and attractive body scent, Hoa Trac Thi was immediately appointed a noblewoman by Qianlong.
Due to Qianlong’s favor, even though he entered the palace, Dung Phi still maintained his hometown style, wearing national costumes and eating food cooked specifically by Uyghur chefs. These things are enough to prove that Qian Long really loves and pampers Phi Dung.
Concubines can only be favored once
However, according to historical records, although Princess Dung was pampered by Qian Long, he only favored her once. Concubine Dung lived to be 55 years old and then passed away, but during her years as a concubine, she never became pregnant. What is the reason behind?
According to records in “Thanh Su Cao”, Dung Phi suffered from athlete’s foot. Therefore, although Dung Phi’s body has a seductive scent, her feet have a very unpleasant odor. However, because she usually wears very tight shoes, no one can smell this bad smell.

Dung Phi only takes off her shoes when going to bed or taking a shower. The first time Qianlong favored Princess Dung, he was annoyed by the smell, so after that time, the emperor never treated her again.
Even though he did not favor Dung Phi, Qian Long still treated her very well. In 1765, King Qianlong went on an inspection trip to the south, bringing with him more than 1,000 members of the royal family, including Ham Huong. On the way, the king extremely favored her, giving her more than 80 types of dishes. Ham Huong’s beauty and love for her homeland made the king love and trust her even more. In 1768, the empress dowager appointed her concubine Dung and gave her Manchu clothes and jewelry.
When the queen passed away, King Qianlong did not want to have another queen. In 1775, the royal concubine was sentenced to death, while Dung concubine was the person with the highest status in the palace, respected by the king.
