Synopsis and Plot Summary

A story revolving around Empress Sun Ruowei who lived through six dynasties and spent 50 years governing the inner palace.

The first year of the reign of Yongle Emperor was a turbulent one and plagued by rumors that Jianwen Emperor has disguised himself as a Buddhist monk to escape death. Jianwen Emperor's supporters were hunted and killed including Jing Qing and his wife. With the help of Vice Captain Sun Yu, their eldest daughter Ruowei (Tang Wei) manages to escape the massacre unscathed. Their second daughter Man Yin is rescued by the Crown Prince Zhu Gao Chi.

The two sisters lead disparate lives - one growing up in the palace and the other in the pugilistic world. Ruowei plots to kill Yongle Emperor while her younger sister marries into the imperial family. Along the way, Ruowei crosses paths with Zhu Zhanji (Zhu Yawen), the emperor's grandson and bears witness to the complicated affairs between those in power.
