Genealogy[edit]

Some people say that she was once a wife of Prince Karu, a grandson of Empress Jitō, but no clear evidence exists.

Man'yōshū has some poems of her love of Prince Yuge, a son of Princess Ōe. No other historical materials recording about her life are existing. No records say that she married him.
