The Worthy Lady Shun (Chinese: 顺贵人) (1748 - 1788) was a concubine of the Qianlong Emperor who ruled China from 1735 till 1796.


Worthy Lady Shun née Niohuru was Manchu of origin. She was the daughter of Governor General Aibida (Chinese: 总督爱必达) who was a grandson of Ebilun, sixteenth son of Eidu.

Lady Niohuru was born in the thirteenth year of the Qianlong Emperor's reign on the twenty-fifth day of the eleventh month. She entered the Forbidden City aged 18, during the thirty-first year of the Qianlong Emperor's reign (1766) on the twenty-sixth day of the sixth month. She was 37 years younger than the Qianlong Emperor.

Lady Niohuru was chosen to stay and was given the title Worthy Lady Chang (常贵人) (the sixth lowest rank among an emperor's wives). During the thirty-third year of the Qianlong Emperor's reign, Lady Niohuru was elevated to an imperial concubine, and given the title Imperial Concubine Shun (顺嫔), meaning "conformity". In the sixth month during the forty-first year of the Qianlong Emperor's reign (1776), Lady Niohuru was again elevated to a Consort. The ceremony for her promotion was to be held the following year, but was delayed by two years because of the death of Qianlong's mother in 1777.

In 1787 Lady Niohuru celebrated her fortieth birthday. However, on the twenty-ninth day of the first month during the fifty-third year of the Qianlong Emperor's reign, Lady Niohuru was demoted to a Worthy Lady (back to the third-lowest rank). The reason for her demotion is unknown. She died within the same year and was interred in the Yuling mausoleum for imperial concubines in Hebei.
