1. Empress Xing of lily & sapphire
Empress Xing (1106 1139), personal name Xing Shi was a Chinese Empress of the Song Dynasty, married to Emperor Gaozong of Song. Xing was from Bianjing, and was selected to be the primary consort of Gaozong, then a Prince.
Their marriage was conducted in 1115, when she was eight years old. In 1126, Emperor Huizong abdicated in favor of his son, Emperor Qinzong, the elder brother of Gaozong. In 1127, the capital of Kaifeng was captured by the Jurchen during the JinSong Wars.
The Emperor Qinzong was deposed, and him, as well as his predecessor Emperor Huizong and most of the Imperial family and court, over 3000 people, was captured and exiled to Manchuria in what was called the Jingkang Incident. They were first taken to the Jurchen capital, many of them dying on the way. The Imperial consorts, concubines, palace women and eunuchs who were taken captured, were distributed among the Jurchen as slaves.
Consort Xing was among those captured and taken away. Nothing more is known of her except that she was coveted by her captors, that she attempted suicide to escape abuses but was unsuccessful, and that she died in captivity in 1139. Gaozong himself avoided capture because he was absent from the capital when it fell.
Gaozong then organized the resistance against further Jurchen invasion, declaring himself Emperor in late 1127 and establishing the Southern Song dynasty. Knowing his primary consort Xing was still alive in captivity, he declared her to be Empress in absentia. Emperor Gaozong kept the position of Empress vacant because he did not know whether Consort Xing was still alive or not: when she died in 1139, the Jurchen kept her death a secret, and it was not until his mother, Consort Wei, was released and allowed to join him, that he learned that she was dead.
Her remains was returned to be buried the same year. It was not until 1143 that Gaozong was persuaded by his mother and his ministers to appoint a new Empress, and he promoted Consort Wu to the position.

3. History of lily & sapphire
On January 7, 2014, deputies Karla RubilarÂ es, Pedro BrowneÂ es and Joaqun Godoy IbezÂ es decided to leave their party, the National Renewal party, due to ideological differences. Among the reasons that were given for leaving was the party's refusal to support the closing of the Penal CordilleraÂ es (a special prison for military people that were condemned for human rights violations under the Pinochet dictatorship), its lack of support for the allowance of civil unions, and its position on economic and educational policies.
The same day, Rubilar, Browne, and Ibez presented a manifesto entitled "Amplitud", which outlined a new political movement. The positions detailed included the rejection of human rights violations committed during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet and support for political reforms, including the reform of the electoral system and the vote of Chileans living abroad. On January 20, Senator Lily PrezÂ es joined the movement, having resigned from National Renewal four days earlier.
Later that year, on March 28, former-senator Carlos CanteroÂ es and regional councilor of Antofagasta Constantino ZafirpulosÂ es joined the party. Its initial intentions were to remain within the Alliance, forming a political party with Political Evolution and other center-right organizations, and presenting its own candidate for the eventual presidential primary in 2017. However, its path changed towards the end of 2014 when Amplitude made a political-reforms agreement with Public Force (Fuerza Pblica, later Citizens), a political movement led by Andrs Velasco, and Liberal Network (Red LiberalÂ es).
Lily Prez had expressed the party's intention to hold a presidential primary between herself and Velasco. On March 7, 2015, Amplitude elected its provisional board of directors; Joaquin Godoy won the presidency with 89.8% of the vote and general secretary Peter Browne won with 80.
9%. The new board officially took office on March 15, 2015. On May 15, 2015, founding member Deputy Karla Rubilar quit Amplitude, citing political differences.
The next day the General Council was held in the former National Congress building in Santiago, where a new emblem was presented and it was decided to initiate proceedings for registration as a political party. On September 28, 2015, Amplitude announced the formation of a liberal political coalition, joining with Citizens and Liberal Network to face the municipal elections of 2016. On January 2016 the coalition was named Future Sense (Spanish: Sentido Futuro).
