Zhen Luo is not the real name of Lady Zhen; her real name is not recorded. The name Zhen Luo comes from a poem written by Cao Zhi about the Goddess of the Luo River. Some stories say this poem was dedicated to the Lady Zhen and that's where the name Luo comes from.
Originally Zhao Ji was a concubine of Lü Buwei, and then was later sent as a gift to Zi Chu who later became King Zhuangxiang of the Qin State. She gave birth to Qin Shi Huang but after the King’s death, Zhao Ji carried on a clandestine love affair with Lü Buwei.
She then also had an affair with Lao Ai and gave birth to two illegitimate children. Her scandalous behavior caused Qin Shi Huang great embarrassment and in a fit of rage he killed Lao Ai and his two bastard half-brothers and then forced Zhao Ji to move from the royal palace. However it appears that Zhao Ji’s deeds affected Qin Shi Huang deeply. Gradually, the Emperor began to hate women and used them only as the means of meeting his base human needs.
