Consort Qi (Qing Dynasty)

Consort Qi (died 1737) was a concubine of the Yongzheng Emperor of the qing dynasty.

Consort Qi was a Han Chinese by birth and her family name was Li (李). Her father was Li Wenhui (李文輝), a prefecture governor (知府).

Lady Li became a concubine of the Kangxi Emperor's fourth son Yinzhen (the future Yongzheng Emperor) and was given the title of a side chamber consort (側福晉). In 1695 she gave birth to Yinzhen's second daughter Heshuo Princess Huaike (和碩懷恪公主). Two years later she gave birth to Yinzhen's second son Hongpan (弘昐). She bore Yinzhen his third son Hongyun (弘昀) in 1700 and his fourth son Hongshi in 1704. Of her four children, only Hongshi lived to see his father ascend to the throne as the Yongzheng Emperor in 1722.

After the Yongzheng Emperor came to the throne, Lady Li was granted the title of Consort Qi (齊妃). In 1727 Lady Li's son Hongshi was expelled from the imperial clan and forced to commit suicide for plotting against his younger half-brother Hongli (the future Qianlong Emperor) in a rivalry for succession to the throne. Lady Li, as Hongshi's mother, was disgraced and was never promoted from then on.

Lady Li died in 1737 during the reign of the Qianlong Emperor and was interred in the Tailing Mausoleum in the western qing Tombs.
