Zhang Chunhua is the wife of Sima Yi, and an important statesperson in the Kingdom of Wei. She is also known as Empress Xuanmu of the Jin Empire.


Many stories in China refer to her as a "Demonic Wife", and she is famous for being a female murderer.

Zhang Chunhua was said to be as intelligent as her husband, if not more. She was a cruel woman with a violent temper, so much so that even her husband feared her. Although they had 3 children together, Sima Yi apparently never loved his wife. There is a popular story in which Sima Yi fell ill, and when Zhang Chunhua came to visit him he is rumored to have said, "What a foolish woman! Her visit means nothing to me!".

Although they did not get along, Zhang Chunhua did aid Sima Yi in his quest to gain more power, helping to cover up any evidence that he was secretly planning to stage a coup. When she died, Sima Yi pretended to mourn her. However, it was mainly a ploy to gain sympathy from people.
