Wu Zetian

Tang Dynasty唐朝 (táng cháo) 618--906 ADTang Dynasty is often referred to as the Golden Age of Chinese history. Relatively speaking, it was an open-minded society, and women enjoyed a lot more freedom. They were allowed to receive education, own properties, choose husbands, and even get a divorce and remarry. It was under a society like this that Empress Wu rose to power. However, this doesn't mean there was gender equality. She was under a lot of criticism at the time mainly based on her gender.

I inspired many TV shows and movies.

Hello, my name is武则天 (Wu Zetian). I was a Tang Dynasty (618--906 AD) empress, the first and last real female sovereign in the Chinese history.
