694CE. Invasion & War. The Imperial Chinese Court.
A modern working of a thirteen hundred years'
old story about a youth, his mentor, Empress Wu,
and a concubine.
Also included is a small file from Woman's Hour
which provides some factual data about the only
woman to rule Imperial China in her own right.
Wu had a 'harem' of 120 youths. Which could
explain why her monument looks like a penis.
