In ancient China, intermarriage was nothing new in royal members.

In the Jin dynasty, Emperor Wu married his cousin, who then gave birth to Hui, the second Emperor.

However, Emperor Hui was a famous mentally-handicapped king in Chinese history.

When he came to power, a minister reported him that folks were in hot water and that many people died of famine due to rice shortage.

"Why don't they eat meat?" Emperor Hui suspiciously asked.

Thus, Chinese people like to use "Emperor Hui" to refer to government officials who can't feel their folks.
