Who was Emperor Xiaowu of Jin?

Emperor Xiaowu of Jin, personal name Sima Yao, courtesy name Changming, was an emperor of the Eastern Jin Dynasty in China. During his reign, Jin saw his dynasty survive a major attempt by Former Qin to destroy it, but he would nevertheless be the last Jin emperor to actually exercise imperial power, as his sons Emperor An and Emperor Gong would be controlled by regents and warlords. He himself died an unusual death—he was killed by his concubine Consort Zhang after he insulted her.
