I would like to know what Japanese source was cited as the basis for
the allegation that Queen Min was raped.  I have read everything I
could get my hands on regarding Queen Min's assassination.  Never
found any such suggestion. The circumstances of her death as I know them
would not appear to have allowed such behavior.
