Consort Xiang (? - 1861) was a concubine of the Daoguang Emperor.



Consort Xiang, née Niuhuru (鈕祜祿氏), was the daughter of Jiufu (久福), who was a descendent of Eidu's tenth son Yirteng (伊尔登) (? - 1663). She entered the Forbidden City in Beijing during the beginning of Emperor Daoguang's reign (1820 - 1850) and was given the title of worthy lady Xiang (祥; auspicious). In 1823 she was promoted to the rank of an imperial concubine. She gave birth to two daughters and a son. Sometime after the birth of her son Yicung she was demoted for a reason unknown [1], but she was promoted by one rank after the death of Emperor Daoguang in 1850. Consort Xiang died in the eleventh year of Emperor Xianfeng's reign at the mountain resort in Chengde. She was later interred in the Muling mausoleum for Imperial Concubines and restored to a third rank consort by the Tongzhi Emperor.
