text: (13) Incest of Wanching Ang.
text: Naiwang was Ang of Wanching and committed incest with the daughter of his father's brother. Therefore the Wanching people deposed him. He had to build another house. One of his cousins, Yatou, was made Ang and moved into the Ang's house and got all the Ang's fields. The girl married then a man of Shiong.
