And because of this, she is deeply disgusted by his harsh and sick methods.

However, during the Battle of Tong Pass, She eventually defected from the Wei army and helped a routed Ma Chao to escape from danger. After the ordeal, Cao Pai felt remorseful toward Ma Chao and comforted him which led him to fall in love with her process. When Ma Chao joined the Shu Army, he and Cao Pai eventually got married to each other and she accompanied her husband in many battles such as the Battle of Han Zhong and the Battle of Yi Ling, and she also became fast friends with Guan Yu's daughter Guan Cai. What Cao Pai does not know, is that she being hunted down by the Wei army led her brother Cao Pi for betraying her family and her kingdom.

 Historical InformationEdit

Family background and marriage to Emperor Xian

Cao Jie was a daughter of the warlord Cao Cao, who by 196 had Emperor Xian under his control and issuing edicts in Emperor Xian's name to his own benefit in his campaign to reunite the empire, which had been held by regional warlords. In 213, Cao, who by that point had been created the Duke of Wei (later Prince of Wei), offered three daughters to be Emperor Xian's consorts—Jie and her older sister, Cao Xian (Chinese: 曹憲), and younger sister, Cao Hua (Chinese: 曹華). Initially, their titles were Furen (夫人), and in 197 their titles were upgraded to Guiren (貴人).

In 214, Emperor Xian's first wife Empress Fu Shou was discovered to have advocated a conspiracy against Cao Cao in 200, and although 14 years had elapsed, Cao was still so angry at her that he forcibly had her deposed and executed. In 215, Cao Jie was named Empress to replace her.

[edit] As empress and duchessEdit

Not much is known about Empress Cao's life as empress, but it was clear that by that point her husband was thoroughly powerless, as her father held all power. In 220, her father died, and her brother Cao Pi succeeded him as the Prince of Wei. Later that year, he forced Emperor Xian to abdicate in favor of him, ending the Han Dynasty. It is said by traditional historians when Cao Pi sent messengers to require Empress Cao to surrender her empress seal, she refused to several times, but finally did. As her husband was created the Duke of Shanyang, she was given the title the Duchess of Shanyang. Her husband died in 234, and she died 26 years later and was buried with him with honors due an empress, using Han ceremonies.
