Historians know Qin Shi Huang as a cruel tyrant, but few know of his heartfelt love for a medicine girl named A Feng. They met when he was still Yin Zheng, a downtrodden hostage prince in Handan. She took care of him, and their feelings grew to the point that they were willing to die for one another. After Yin Zheng returned to his country and his political influence grew, he found it increasingly difficult to hold onto to the woman he loved. For A Feng’s part, she became fearful of the man her A Zheng had become.
