Emperess Living
 The only female monarch in Chinese history, Wu Zetian was the cairen, a fifth grade concubine of the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907)) of Emperor Taizong, and then ascended to empress of Emperor Gaozong, son of Emperor Taizong.
 She established the Zhou Dynasty which existed for 15 years from 690 to 705, with Luoyang as the capital. She was diligent in state affairs, which laid a foundation for the later 'Heyday of Kaiyuan' in Emperor Xuanzong's rule.
I have tried this week in Beijing to follow her footsteps  and my friends, not bad, not a bad life at all!
Also find in the last post pod this newsletter some powerful, glamourous ,elegant and fine jewelled contemporary Chinese empresses. Enjoy!

 Imperial Promenade

 Originally built in 1750 by the emperor Qianlong to celebrate his mother's birthday, The Summer Palace was used at the time as a pleasure garden for emperors and empresses.

Peking Duck

 The dish is prized for the thin, crisp skin, with authentic versions of the dish serving mostly the skin and little meat, sliced in front of the diners by the cook.

 Calligraphy Class

The ink brushinkpaper, and inkstone are essential implements of East Asian calligraphy: they are known together as the Four Treasures of the Study  in China. In addition to these four tools, desk pads and paperweights are also used by calligraphers.



Modern Empresses

 Today, in everyday China you do not need to go that far. Hotel Magazines, such the Peninsula's,  the Nihau equivalent to  the American Town and Country, and  the local Vogue are a full  showcase of  young Socialite Empresses,  leaders of  style, power and good taste.
