“The third and most famous story involved not a duke or a king but an emperor, specifically the young Emperor Ai of the Han Dynasty. According to the Han historian Ban Gu, the emperor once sought to rise when his lover Dong Xian had fallen asleep on the sleeve of his robe.

Thereafter, reputedly, his courtiers adopted similar abbreviations of clothing to celebrate the love affair.”
