  Emperor Ai of Han - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Emperor Ai of Han (27 BC–1 BC) was an emperor of the Chinese Han Dynasty.
Emperor Ai was born to Prince Liu Kang of Dingtao (劉康), the brother to then-reigning Emperor Cheng and son to Emperor Yuan, and his wife Consort Ding, in 27 BC, presumably at Prince Kang's principality (roughly modern Heze, Shandong).
Emperor Ai would be succeeded by his cousin Prince Jizi, as Emperor Ping, but the damage he inflicted on the imperial rule had been done, paving the way for Wang Mang to seize the throne nine years later.

 Emperor Ping of Han - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Emperor Ping was allegedly poisoned by Wang Mang after reigning less than 6 years, because Wang was concerned that he would avenge his uncles, and his successor, the toddler Emperor Ruzi, would be chosen by none other than Wang Mang himself.
Circa 5, Emperor Ping, having grown older, appeared to have grown out of his earlier heart condition, and it became fairly plain that he resented Wang Mang for slaughtering his uncles and not allowing his mother to visit him in Chang'an.
As the emperor was suffering the effects of the poison, Wang Mang wrote a secret petition to the gods, in which he offered to substitute his life for Emperor Ping's, and then have the petition locked away.

The Han emperors all had male lovers, at a time when such relationships were necessarily not egalitarian, and the two chosen for inclusion are specifically known to have had young lovers.
Where it came to a specific strong indication of a sexual relationship (as was the case with Ban Gu's description of the relationship between Emperor Ai of Han and Dong Xian -- and even that one is not conclusive), much stronger language is used.
I might accept that there was sufficient evidence of a sexual relationship between Emperor Wu of Han and Han Yan, for example, but that is much weaker than the evidence of the relationship between Emperor Ai and Dong Xian.

The importance of the Han Dynasty should be evident in the circumstance that this is what the Chinese have called themselves ever since, the "Han People." And Chinese characters are called the Hanzi (Kulcha in Korean), the "Han letters." Also “Paper” and “Gun powder” was invented in China during the Han Dynasty.
The greatest Emperor of the Former Han Dynasty was probably Wu Ti.
This name means "Martial Emperor," because of the success of Chinese arms in the occupation of the Tarim Basin; but the cultural heritage of his long reign was far more durable.
