Untitled[edit]

There has been a certain Gryffindor (neé Antares) who has forcefully wanted this to be "Dowager empress Shoken". However, already simplicity means that empress Shoken is better. And additionally, highest title is used of the dead - consort is regarded as higher than dowager. We always have the alternative to put her under Empress Haruko. Arrigo 23:06, 25 August 2005 (UTC)

Smallpox vaccination?[edit]

In the "Early Life" section, it says "Usual for the time, she had been vaccinated to smallpox." I feel that smallpox vaccination would have been unusual in that era, but I don't have evidence. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.119.8.66 (talk) 07:41, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
