Documentary Series: The Da Ming Palace

Six beautifully made series about a legendary palace of the splendid Tang Dynasty in Chinese history. The rise and fall of Da Ming Palace was closely tightened with the power of Tang. If you are interested in Chinese ancient culture, you need to learn about Tang. It is my favourite dynasty in the history of China! 🙂

A few interesting facts about Tang Dynasty (618年-907年):

1. It was fashionable for women to be full-figured (or plump). Men enjoyed the presence of assertive, active women.

2. Empress Wu Ze Tian was the only legitimate female ruler in Chinese history.

3. During the Tang Dynasty, tea became synonymous with everything sophisticated in society.

4.  The first recorded use of toilet paper was made in 589 by the scholar-official Yan Zhitui.

5. People played football and polo.  W020081212393262858311
