Ta-Ki, the Chinese Emperor’s Mistress Who Loved to See Women Dismembered - 1200

Ta-Ki, the mistress of the Emperor Cheon-Sin (1147), plunged him into vicious excesses, and when a rival appeared on the scene she had her killed and sent the body, cut into pieces, to the murdered woman's father, whom she also caused to be assassinated.

Among other barbarities, Ta-Ki used to order pregnant women to be torn limb from limb.

[Prof. Caesar Lombroso and William Ferraro, D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1909, p. 149]


Emperor Cheon-Sin (currently transliterated as Guangzong) (1147–1200) (reigned 1189–1194) was the 12th Emperor of Song China.
