country together mujition sat behind the pearl screen behind emperor gaozon during all the imperial meetings wujitan was well educated and capable she controlled imperial power and often made the decisions independently she also deprived the chancellors of many powers by setting up her own political elite group in 675 as emperor goujon’s illness worsened he wanted to have witches formally rule the countries as a region however they received strong opposition from a chancellor and many other officials because they could not accept a female leader therefore emperor gao zhong gave up this idea the emperor finally died in 683 the son of fujitsu li sien took the throne as emperor zhong zhong wujitan became the empress dowager and the regions the real power was still in her hand but emperor

dynasty name from tang to joe and moved to capital from chiang and to look young once rojitan took the throne she opened power to the people would you then create a new examination system with more subjects anyone could participate in the exam and talented people would be promoted as high-ranking officials therefore the power was no longer concentrated in the dominant families during her reign the society was stable with constant increasing birth rate in her late years wujithan began to consider the succession issue vergitien’s surname was wu to continue her dynasty in theory she could only pass the throne to wu’s family members that were her nephews her two nephews also attempted to persuade wuji tend to let them be the crown prince but which then still hesitated she asked opinion from her most trusted chancellor the iranian the ranger firmly opposed it and suggested her to give the crown prince position to her son the previous emperor zhong zhong because only the mother of the emperor could be worshipped in a thai meal the ancestral temple of emperor if a nephew took the throne she would not be respected in the temple after her death to protect her dignity after death wojten agreed with her chancellor in 698 at her 74 years old she allowed her son jeong jung back to the capital and made him the crown prince two years later wu ji then moved back to the previous capital chan and in 705 when wu chittim was seriously ill her son jeong jong took this opportunity to send his troops to mutiny against vergitien and forced her to abdicate empress jung jung took the

emperor gao jung in leon san their two stone monuments were facing each other emperor’s goujon’s monument was written with his great achievement while roger tense monument had no words on it in all these years the tomb was never stolen outside her tomb there were many live-sized stone statues wearing minority grip clothing their poses were like welcoming wujit hyen and emperor gaozun but these statues had were all missing legends said they were cut by the minority groups in later rebellions during huangchang rebellion the 400 000 of rebel army came to lanshan to find the entrance to the tomb hoping to steal the valuable treasures inside however after searching for days they still did not find anything finally they discovered a large pile of shelter stones in the west side of the mountain they were convinced that the entrance must be in the nearby areas they were excited and began to dig the monk a 40 meter deep hole was excavated but still they failed to find entrance and were forced to give up in fact the entrance was on the opposite the east side of the mountain it was believed that when wichita designed a tomb she asked the workers to transport the shutters construction stones to the other side to deceive the future burglars in 1958 during road construction a worker suddenly found a large stone with decorated patterns that helped confirm that the area was the entrance to woojiten’s tomb the scholar guamoyer requested joe and lai the first premier of the people’s republic of china to excavate the tomb however joan knight was aware that technology was not advanced enough at that time when the trashes were exposed to the air they would decay very easily so joe and i rejected the request and protected the area from being vandalized therefore the tomb remained intact until today according to the estimate from archaeologists the tumor is around 5 000 cubic meter large stirring 500 000 to 800 000 kilogram of treasures the tomb included various rooms to store the paintings jewels clothing etc at the end of the tomb was the room of fujitan and emperor gao jung it was believed that fujitan’s favorite portrait was also buried with her in the
