Zhang Xiao, a contemporary, ethnically Han Chinese young woman from the 21st century, accidentally travels back in time to the Qing Dynasty period during the reign of Kangxi Emperor after experiencing a deadly combination of traffic collision and electrocution, resulting her somehow reliving the life of one of her previous incarnations and forcing her to assumes the identity belongs to her past avatar: Maertai Rexi, teenage daughter of a Manchu nobleman, who also had a near-fatal incident in her own time which Zhang awakes from.

Being stranded in the past, in the body of a centuries earlier incarnation of herself, and believe by many of Maertai’s family and friends that the sudden change of her behavior and memory loss is resulted of her head injury, Zhang Xiao awares that there will be a dangerous power struggle known to history between the scheming princes for the throne, which will results Aisin-Gioro Yinzhen to succeed as the Yongzheng Emperor after his father’s death. Zhang Xiao tries to change the future outcomes for the better, hoping to prevents any casualty as written in the future without interfering a man’s destiny, while trying to find a way to return to her time period.

    If you notice, I think all the 阿哥 here like all their ce Fu ji more than their di Fu ji haha

  • Firiaru

    Seriously what is with that bias against her older son and favouritism towards her younger son? He’s already made emperor, what else do you want to do? And aren’t they both your son? It’s as if the 4th isn’t her son. She even smashed the jade bangle he got her just because of that. What…a nuisance.

  • omg

    RX has really bad skin hahaha

  • omg

    why doesn’t RX have a title yet???

    • Ezzychan

      The emperor wanted to see her all the time. If she had a title, for him to see her, he had to draw a lot among his concubines’ list. It was a smart move. =D

  • Xxhearts_luvnxx

    wait im confused. so is it true that 4th prince stole 14th prince’s spot for the throne?? PLELASE ANSWER!:D

    • LA


    • In BBJX yes the 4th we can say usurped the throne !

    • kate

      well, in the drama he did. but in the real history, historians had no answer. it s still a mystery!

      • HarleQuinn

        Its not really a mystery. Kangxi passed it to Yongzheng in history. the full royal decree states 4’s name Yinzhen in chinese which is not forgable, and would have said 皇四子 so it’ll be kinda hard to just get rid of the 10 in between and not leave a very suspicious gap. Further, like contracts in Hongkong, it would have been in 2 languages, Chinese and Manchu and Manchu is apparently really hard to forge.

        Also, the military might was given to 4’s obvious supporters which is a pretty clear sign who he wanted to be king.

        The rumours are jus created by 8 and 14 etc as a final bid to unseat Yongzhen and gaint the throne.

        That is one thing I didnt like about the novel, that she sided with the rumours and made Yongzhen do all those horrible things to cover it up.

  • Thuchen

    what’s with the letter Lü Wu wrote Ruoxi, I don’t really get it. Why is she leaving 13th and going to Jiangnan being filial???

    • Scorpiojt93

      she actually killed herself. her parents had broken the law in some way and was killed. so she is some what like a sinner. she felt that if her background was spilled out, she would shame the 13th prince.

        And also not to burden her little daughter’s life. Coz the other wife told her into the ear in the garden, that the little girl will not be able to marry to a prince or noble man if LuWu dont die, dont want to give up her daughter to be cared by “noble-wives” 

    • HarleQuinn

      Lu wu’s family was one of the ones ‘convicted’ of a huge felong back in Kangxi’s time. ‘Wen zi yu’ was a literary suppression movement to stop anti-Qing writings, and I think Lu Wu’s family  was accused of seditious writing. This was like a huge deal in Qing dynasty, sometimes enough to have the whole family executed.

      When 13 came out of isolation, he asked Yongzhen to give Lu Wu a legitimate title. She knew that if that happened, then 8 and 9 would report Lu Wu’s background, and possible get 13 demoted or even investigated and charged and it would also make her daughter an outcast with no marriage prospects.

      13’s other wife didn’t know this, she was just mocking LuWu’s prostitute background, but the effect would be the same if either of the truths came out. But LuWu knew that 13 really wanted her to be legitimate and probably wouldnt let it go, so she chose to die rather than to make trouble for him.

      RuoXi guessed all this and made up the lie that LuWu chose to leave because now that 13 is okay, she would be betraying her family if she stayed with the royals who had executed them.

    what and who is “福晉”?

    • HarleQuinn

      福晉 just means the wife of an aristocrat, so all the wives of the ah ge’s are Fujins

    • Aliciaatann

      福晉 = wife of the prince. there can be alot of 福晉 but there will be one main 福晉 and max 8 other 福晉. as long as he is the prince, his official wife is call 福晉.
