She was born in Hwanghae Province in 1356. Her father was Kang Yun-Seong. During the Goryeo Dynasty, a son of the first wife of king was named Crown Prince but Queen Sindeok and Prime Minister Jeong Do-jeon convinced him to nominate her son, Grand Prince Uian as Crown Prince.
After Queen Sindeok died in 1396, her husband built a royal tomb for her. Prime minister, Jeong Do-jeon, planned to kill the sons of Queen Shinui to protect his position in the court and position of Crown Prince. Yi Bang-won, heard about the plan and came to palace where he killed Jeong Do-jeon and Queen Sindeok's sons. This event is known as First Strife of Princes.
