Chinese Novel

I've read a few months ago a Lin YuTang novel about Wu Ze Tian (Wu Zhao) , chinese empress.
That was really fascinating, even if I guess it was kind of "re-adapted" for the novel.
Did you already heard about that woman?
So impressive!

Yeah she was the only woman to achieve the title "Empress Regnant" in the history of China.

Read more about her here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wu_Zetian

She is the women who was adapted in the fictional literature:
Lady Wu, written by Lin Yutang, combines thoroughly researched historical data and storytelling to weave a sensually vicious portrayal of the woman who would be Emperor.
