Consort He (died 1836) was a consort of the Daoguang Emperor of the Qing dynasty.


Consort He was born in the Manchu Nara clan. Her personal name is unknown. Her father was Chengwen (成文), a qingxian (卿銜; a type of official post).

Lady Nara entered the Forbidden Palace during the reign of the Jiaqing Emperor and became a concubine of the emperor's second son, Mianning. In 1808, she gave birth to Mianning's first son, Yiwei (奕緯; 1808-1831), and was granted the title "Prince's Side Chamber Consort" (皇子側福晉).

In 1820, the Jiaqing Emperor died and was succeeded by Mianning, who was enthroned as the Daoguang Emperor. Two years later, Lady Nara was granted the rank of Imperial Concubine under the title "Imperial Concubine He" (和嬪). In 1823, she was promoted to "Consort He" (和妃).

Lady Nara died in 1836 and was interred in the Muling Mausoleum in the Western Qing tombs.
