In December 1796, Lady Wanggiya was given a title "First Class Female Attendant Chun" (春常在;"chun" meaning literally "spring") comparing her beauty to the eternal youth symbolized by spring. She was promoted to Noble Lady Chun (春贵人) in 1798[3]. In 1801, Noble Lady Chun was promoted to Concubine Ji (吉嫔, "ji" meaning "auspicious")[4]. In 1808, concubine Ji was promoted to Consort Zhuang (庄妃,"zhuang" meaning "dignified"). Consort Zhuang died on 9 March 1811 in the Western Garden in Yuanmingyuan. She remained childless until her death.Her coffin was temporarily placed in the Antian Memorial Palace.[5] Consort Zhuang was interred in the Chang Mausoleum in the Western Qing Tombs. Empress Xiaoherui personally took part in her funeral ceremony. It was uncommon for the empress to visit concubine's grave during the Qing dynasty reign[6].
