Empress Wu ruled China for twenty years during the Tang Dynasty in the seventh century. Enigmatic as well as ambitious, she was one of just two women to reign over this Asian giant. Dr. Woo digs through chronicles and stories to pull together what is known about her family, her rise to prominence, and how she gained power against all the odds.
