Xiahou Shi, Zhang Fei’s wife, appeared as a secret character in Koei’s Romance of the Three Kingdoms XI.
“Xiahou Yuan’s niece. Xiahou Ba’s cousin. Zhang Fei’s wife. The mother of Zhang Shi, Liu Shan’s Empress. In the year 200, when Xiahou Shi was thirteen or fourteen, she was captured by Zhang Fei when out collecting firewood, and became his wife. In 219, when Xiahou Yuan died in battle, Xiahou Shi asked to bury the reamins, Xiahou Ba (who later defected to Shu) was given preferential treatment because he was Xiahou Shi’s cousin, and was promoted to Marshal.” (1)
