The Lady of Dai, also known as Xin Zhui, died between 178 and 145 BC. C., but pathologists couldn’t believe how well preserved she was when her grave was accidentally discovered in 1971.

The things buried with the Lady of Dai proved that she was a rich and powerful woman while she was alive. She also appears to have had the best mummifiers on hand, as her skin is still wet and her eyelashes are still attached, and she still has blood in her veins.

Experts discovered more than 100 undigested melon seeds inside his body

The mummy’s organs were still intact, right down to the paper-thin pulmonary nerves. Experts discovered more than 100 undigested melon seeds inside her esophagus, stomach, and intestines while studying her body.

It was discovered that he had consumed melon just an hour before his death. So how did the Lady of Dai survive so well? Part of it is simply due to her wealth, as her body was discovered wrapped in 18 layers of silk and linen garments.

His coffin was also filled with a strange clear liquid that turned brown when exposed to oxygen.

While some speculate that these were simply his biological fluids, others believe that it was a traditional herbal treatment that aided in the preservation of the body. Despite her wealth, pathologists were able to identify that the Lady of Dai was in poor health when she died.

The Chinese noblewoman died of a heart attack immediately after digging into the melon, according to blood clots still resting in her veins. It was estimated that she was around 50 years old when she died, which was a pretty good life back then.
