In 1402, Sun Ruowei's entire family is killed on the orders of the Yongle Emperor. Being secretly adopted by Sun Zhong, Sun Ruowei escapes death. She becomes the concubine of crown prince Zhu Zhanji, and continues to investigate the truth behind her family’s death.
However, Sun Ruowei abandon her revenge plans when realising how dangerous it would be to destabilise the court for her own personal goals. Touched by Zhu Zhanji’s kindness, Sun Ruowei resolves to become someone who can support him in times of hardship. Unfortunately Zhu Zhanji passes away after a decade on the throne, and Sun Ruowei is honoured as Empress Dowager once her 7 year old Zhu Qizhen ascends the throne.
