Who is the prototype of Meng Po? Does Meng Po have a husband? Many people have the impression that Meng Po is a short old woman. No matter she is an old woman or a beautiful woman, all the immortals and ghosts in the six realms dare not bully her casually, and even treat her respectfully. The following China story net Xiaobian will bring you a detailed introduction. Let’s have a look!

First of all, in most eyes, Meng Po is a staff member of the underworld. She stays by the Naihe bridge every day, and those who step on the bridge are all dead people. She is responsible for letting everyone passing by drink her own special “Mengpo soup”, clearing all the memories of the past, and carrying on the next reincarnation without any nostalgia. Because of her “nature of work”, many people think she is just a minion, but in fact she has a long history. There are three main ways to say it:


??1. She is the well-known Meng Jiangnu. After she died of grief, God had mercy on her sincerity, so he taught her how to make “Meng Po soup”. He hoped that after drinking her own soup, she could forget all her worries and let her work by the Naihe bridge. 2. originally, she was a small official in the heavenly palace. In order to relieve people’s pain, she set up a big pot by the bridge and began to cook soup. Over time, she stayed there. 3. in the Western Han Dynasty, there was a “leftover woman”, who was left by the bridge and became Meng Po until she was very old.

However, in the book of mountains and seas, her identity is even more unusual. It is said that she was originally the daughter of Emperor Yao. At the beginning, she and her sister were betrothed to Emperor Shun by her father. She and her sister were honored and respected by many people, but her husband died soon. She and her sister were very sad. They cried and called for their husband day and night by the lake. Later, she became Meng Po.


From here we can see that her identity is unusual. Emperor Yao is her father and Emperor Shun is her husband. No wonder no one in the six realms dare to act rashly against her.
