She emerged as Tsu Hsi, Dowager Empress of China and one of the most powerful autocrats in history. A fascinating tale of love, betrayal, murder, intrigue, and survival, The Last Empress offers remarkable insight into life behind the closed doors of the forbidden city. Este trabajo trata de ubicar, en un marco de justa apreciacion historica, a Yehonala, la figura femenina mas infuyente de toda la historia del gigante asiatico. Controvertida e imposible de ignorar, llego a la Ciudad Prohibida como una concubina mas del Emperador y mas adelante se revelo como una figura politica extraordinaria, con una rara habilidad para sobrevivir a todo tipo de intrigas cortesanas.
