Cao Cao was one of the outstanding politicians and military leaders of the late Eastern Han and Three Kingdoms periods.

Compared to Liu Bei and Sun Quan, Cao Cao had a more favorable starting point and quickly achieved many achievements during the chaotic period.

According to Wei Su, before his death, Cao Cao said that his whole life he did not feel sorry for anyone, but he really felt guilty for one woman.

Cao Cao sighed: `If after death, there really is a soul and returns to the golden stream. If I meet Ngang Nhi and she asks me ‘Where is your mother?’, how will I answer?`.

Cao Cao spent his entire life running up and down, fighting wits on the political chessboard, with fiery mutinies between the three forces of Cao – Shu – Wu, but before he died, he did not say anything about the great affairs of the world.

Lady Dinh was Cao Cao’s main wife.

Although Mrs. Dinh was Cao Cao’s first wife, she received a lot of love and favor from her husband, but was infertile.

Before he died, Cao Cao still regretted hurting a woman: An irreparable mistake!

Cao Cao also gave Cao Ngang to Lady Dinh to raise.

When he grew up, Cao Ngang became a handsome young man, perfect in literature and martial arts, and was also famous as a filial son.

In addition, Mrs. Dinh is also a resourceful and capable woman when it comes to managing the family and keeping everything in the house in order.

Cao Ngang is the eldest son and a bright candidate to become Cao Cao’s successor.

Anyone who has read Romance of the Three Kingdoms knows that Cao Cao once almost died because of his temporary desire for a woman.

However, because of his frivolous and amorous habits, Cao Cao almost lost his life.

This incident is also recorded in official history.

Having lived together for many years, Mrs. Dinh always patiently tolerated Cao Cao’s frivolous ways.

Furthermore, after losing in this battle, Cao Cao ordered people to build a temple, set up an offering table, and told his generals: `I lost an eldest son and a beloved nephew, but I did not regret it.

Before he died, Cao Cao still regretted hurting a woman: An irreparable mistake!

Lady Dinh felt sorry for her son, cried bitterly and said: `You killed my son, didn’t you think?`.

Lady Dinh was probably also the first woman who dared to scold Cao Cao in front of the three troops.

Cao Cao was once a man of great prestige, commanding three armies, over ten thousand people, but now he had to be scolded by his wife, it was truly embarrassing.

Cao Cao thought that after a few days his wife would calm down her anger after returning to her mother’s house.

In the end, Cao Cao had to personally drive back to his hometown to welcome Mrs. Dinh.

When Cao Cao arrived, the Dinh family came out to welcome him one by one, only Mrs. Dinh was still calmly weaving in the room.

However, Lady Dinh did not turn around, still focused on weaving and replied: `If you have a need, there is no response.`

Even though Cao Cao personally came to pick him up, Mrs. Dinh refused to return, determined to break off their relationship as husband and wife.

Even though Cao Cao said so, the Dinh family did not dare to marry Mrs. Dinh.

After Lady Dinh returned to her mother’s house and determined not to return, Cao Cao established a new family, Lady Bien, who was also Cao Phi’s mother.

Many years passed, Mrs. Dinh had no intention of getting married and lived quietly for the rest of her life in her mother’s house.

Later, Lady Dinh fell ill and passed away.

He had many concubines throughout his life, but Cao Cao still had special affection for Lady Dinh, the wife who had been with him since childhood.

Running everywhere with great political ambitions, but when he was on the brink of death, Cao Cao revealed the feelings from the bottom of his heart that he had buried for so long.

`I was not ungrateful to you, I just did the wrong thing so things could not be the same as before…`, Cao Cao said (according to Wei’s summary).

At the end of his life, Cao Cao not only felt regret and torment for the mistake he made to Lady Dinh, but also felt pity for Cao Ngang, his filial son who died because of him.
