Other sons from the consort, concubines and mistresses would be given titles one rank lower than their father.

  • Gemstones on Futou hats

  • Two-eyed peacock feathers on Futou hats

  • Leather whips to clear paths of people

      1 Empress/Emperor
      3 Madames/Consorts
      9 Imperial Concubines
      27 Shifus
      81 Imperial Consorts
