Wu Zetian was the only #woman in the history of #China to assume the title of Empress Regnant. As de facto ruler of China first through her husband and her sons from 665 to 690, not unprecedented in Chinese history, she then broke all precedents when she founded her own dynasty in 690, the Zhou (interrupting the Tang Dynasty), and ruled personally under the name Sacred and Divine Empress Regnant and variations thereof from 690 to 705.

Wu Zetian, The First And Only Woman Emperor Of China

Wu Zetian became a royal concubine at the age of 13, sometime between 636 and 638 AD. After Emperor Taizong died, his son, Emperor Gaozong, kept up an affair with Wu and eventually made her his consort—a title equivalent to wife. Wu would continue to exert her influence over male rulers, including her own sons, until she declared herself emperor in 690. She ruled from then until her death in 705. Click above to learn more!
