Synopsis and Plot Summary

The story revolves around Lu Zhen's legendary rise to become the female prime minister. Upon her father's death, Lu Zhen is forced to enter the palace where she relies on wits and talent to survive.

Set during the Norther Qi Dynasty, Lu Zhen (Zhao Li Ying) is an intelligent and courageous woman who comes from a family of merchants. She doesn't let her gender inhibit her from succeeding in business and becomes her father's most capable aide. However, her evil stepmother springs into action the moment her father dies by sending men to kill her. In order to find a safe haven, she passes the palace maid exams and ends up living in the palace. Despite many trials and tribulations, she gets promoted to an official and because of her kindness, she wins the heart of Gao Zhan (Chen Xiao). However, their difference in status given that he is a prince and she is a maid makes their romance a difficult one.

Lu Zhen invites the jealousy of palace maid Shen Bi (Tina Tang) and the ire of Gao Zhen's first love Xiao Huan Yun (Yang Rong), all while the Empress Dowager (Leanne Lau) conspires to put her son Gao Yan (Kimi Qiao) on the throne.
