Miao Chuang

Chinese - A king of Taiwan. Father of Miao Ch'eng, Miao Shan and Miao Yen. When his daughter, Miao Shan, refused to marry and entered a convent, he did all he could to make her life miserable and made several attempts to kill her. For these sins, he was made blind (or, some say, developed an ulcer) and was cured only when Miao Shan plucked out her own eyes, cut off her hands and sent them to her father. Occasionally referred to as Miao Chuang.
