JIANG-YUAN

Chinese legendary mortal

Also known as CHIANG-YUAN

Mother of HOU-JI.

For many years she was barren, childless, alone, and very unhappy. Then one day she walked in the Holy Footprints of the JADE-EMPEROR and soon discovered she was pregnant. Oh joy!

When her son grew up, he became the Lord of Millet. But we’re not sure if he ever found out his father was a foot.
