Shangguan Wan'er, it is but a name Cheap slave, why can finally jumped to a female prime minister? The mystery here is hard to solve.

Shangguan, Shanzhou (now Henan Shanxian) people, Tang Lin Tak first year (AD 664 years) was born in Kyoto, Changan. In the early Tang Dynasty, whose grandfather was a famous politician and litterateur Shangguan yi.

A place in the history of thousands of people seem to have an extraordinary birth, Shangguan is no exception.

(the emperor's harem is very dangerous and the woman must be scheming.)

Sure enough, he kept not in vain, and Shangguan itself is very intelligent, therefore poetry for her is not what problem. Yi Feng two years (677 years), while at the age of 14, because Wu Zetian is full of wit value, from the base to become a slave Wu after the close female officer.

After 32 years, a step toward the peak power of Shangguan, her political, literary talent to play in this step by step to the extreme.

After Tang Zhongzong Li Xianfeng Zhao, who advised in the library to expand Shangguan, increase the degree, the quest for talent. Li Xian itself is relatively weak, coupled with its long years of the country, is utterly ignorant of, so Shangguan became his agent. Long, and Shangguan recommendations were adopted behoove.
