Watch China's Forgotten Emperor |

Watch documentary | “Murderess”, “tyrant”, “pervert” – Empress Wu was a monster who plumbed the depths of evil. Historians condemned her as a woman who brought China to the edge of ruin. For more than a thousand years that verdict stood. But now, China’s breakneck economic development is uncovering a new story... Combining cutting-edge CGI and drone technology with dramatic reconstructions, this new documentary shows how researchers are piecing together the new, true story of China’s “empress of all evil” and how Emperor Wu was in fact the woman who made Dark Ages China a super power.
