Description

Based on our past episodes, it’s safe to say that queens tended to have some pretty, shall we say, turbulent love lives—but Empress Wanrong took one look at those gong show marriages and was like, “Hold my beer.” This poor woman was part of the world’s most dysfunctional royal throuple, complete with a cruel man-child of a husband and competitive sister-wife.

And as though that wasn’t enough drama, Wanrong also had to deal with endless national crises. Eventually, it all culminated in one of the saddest and most disturbing demises in history.
