香香公主 Fragrant Princess

Who is the most well-known Uighur among Chinese?

I guess it must be Princess Abakh Kohja, aka Xiang Fei (香妃) according to Qing history or the Fragrant Princess (香香公主) portrayed in the martial art novel "The Book and the Sword" (書劍恩仇录) written by Louis Cha (Jin Yong).

Her grand tomb is still standing in Kashgar, Xinjiang:

According to the novel, Fragrant Princess had the best bodily odor: The longer she didn't take a bath, the more fragrance her body radiated! :oops:
