China has an incredibly long history with hundreds of emperors, among which the vast majority are male. But, like a number of other countries in the world, China has also had a handful of empresses; very few in number, but powerful nonetheless. Today's BST sheds light on this interesting aspect of Chinese history. We hope that everyone enjoys the show; don't forget to leave your comments below!
