  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.
