About this place
Imperial Concubines and Eunuchs
As is famous in Chinese history, the emperor always had many concubines. Besides his wife, the highest ranks of concubines were: Guifei(second to the empress), and Bin(3rd to the empress). Not all the concubines had the chance to sleep with the emperor. Some even had not one chance at all. But all of those women were not allowed to marry others.
The emperor had so many concubines and maids, so he was afraid that some might have affairs woth the male servants. For this reason, the eunuch appeared to serve the emperor, the empress and the concubines.
