Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Wang Zhaojun was one of four women in ancient China who were famous for their beauty. She lived in the Han Dynasty and was sent to live in the capital as a possible future wife for the emperor. However, instead of marrying the emperor, she was made a princess so that she could marry the king of the Xiongnu People to bring peace between the two countries. The Xiongnu People were a nomadic people to the north of China, famous for their horsemanship. Her life was very difficult and after her husband died, she asked permission to return to China. However, she was denied and told to stay in the Xiongnu country to marry one of the King’s male relatives. She once again got married and kept the peace between the two countries. Since her death there have been hundreds of poems written about her and there’s a big tomb and statue of her near Hohhot, Inner Mongolia today.
