The Last Empress
BlurbThe Last Empress is a historical novel by Anchee Min that provides a sympathetic account of the life of Empress Dowager Cixi, from her rise to power as Empress Tzu-Hsi, until her death at 72 years of age. Akin to the bestselling and preceding novel in the series Empress Orchid, names within the story are different in spelling but retain the same pronunciation - allowing the reader to identify each relevant character to his or her real life counterpart.
