Royal wives and concubines - FEI

Fei is a word often translated as Princess but bear in mind it refers to someone who is bound in a relationship to another aristocrat. I rather suspect the radical tang form started with an aspirate p or it was something like that sound in Fuji that occassionally gets transliterated as a H so you see Huzi instead of Fuji in some texts.
