Recommended Posts


Season 1

In 18th-century China, the Qing Dynasty’s Emperor Qianlong rules the land. The Emperor is unaware that he has a 17-year-old daughter, named Xiazi Wei, who was born after he had a brief fling with her mother. Xiazi Wei is determined to meet her father and travels from her provincial home to the Forbidden City in an effort to seek him out. However, gaining an audience with the Emperor proves far more difficult than she expected. But Xiazi Wei refuses to give up hope and remains in the capital – where she one day meets Xiaoyan Zi, a streetwise orphan girl. The girls become firm friends and hatch a plan to meet the Emperor during a hunting trip. However, their plan is thwarted when Xiaoyan Zi is injured by an arrow fired by the Emperor’s son. The Emperor finds Xiaoyan Zi, and mistakes her for his own daughter, taking her to the Imperial Court. Will the truth out? And will Xiazi Wei ever be able to take her rightful place in the palace?



The year is 1760. Princesses Xiaoyan Zi and Xiazi Wei are adored by Emperor Qian Long. But things are about to change for the young girls. The Empress dislikes both of them, and plots to turn the powerful Dowager Empress against them. Both of the princesses are from poor backgrounds, and she instantly takes a dislike to them. Meanwhile, the princesses meet the lover of an Uyghur chieftain at a restaurant. He explains the sad tale of his love for the Uyghur chieftain’s daughter – explaining that she has been sent to become the concubine of Emperor Qian Long. The young women resolve to help the chieftain’s daughter and succeed in sneaking her out of the palace. However, when the Emperor learns what has happened, he sentences them both to death in a fit of fury. With help from their friends, they escape the palace. But the scheming Empress wants rid of them forever, and sends a band of deadly assassins after them! Can the princesses escape the deadly threat – and might they one day return to the Imperial Palace?


Season 3

At the frustration of Yong Qi's lack of heir, the Grand Empress has made Yong Qi marry another girl so that he may produce a son and maybe one day become the emperor. Xiao Jian, Xiao Yan Zi's brother is in love with Qing Er, but he has a grudge with the emperor for killing their parents many years ago. Since Qing Er is a popular person in front of the Grand Empress, her marriage is within the empress's hands. In order for them to be together, Yong Qi must marry the other girl. Yong Qi chose to be the hero and sacrificed himself so that Qing Er and Xiao Jian could be together. What is worse is that the nation bordering China is going into war and Er Kang became drafted. During one of the big battles he loses his memory and falls for another girl. Will Er Kang return to Zi Wei? Will Yong Qi fall for his second wife?
