Emperor Xiaowu of Jin

Emperor Xiaowu of Jin (晋孝武帝/晉孝武帝, pinyin Jìn Xiàowǔdì, Wade-Giles Chin Hsiao-wu-ti) (362–396), personal name Sima Yao (司馬曜), courtesy name Changming (昌明), was an emperor of the Eastern Jin Dynasty (265–420) in China. During his reign, Jin saw his dynasty survive a major attempt by Former Qin to destroy it, but he would nevertheless be the last Jin emperor to actually exercise imperial power, as his sons Emperor An and Emperor Gong would be controlled by regents and warlords. He himself died an unusual death—he was killed by his concubine Consort Zhang after he insulted her.
