Bejing Secrets from a Forbidden City
Tiptoe into one of the most impregnable places on earth – China’s Forbidden City – in this 1-hour presentation by history specialist Lianne Harris.
Learn about the everyday life of China’s secluded emperors, his women, and the army of advisors, eunuchs and servants whose only existence was to serve him and his family relations. This is the heart of China; a restricted administration center that held sway for 800 years.
Surrounded by unprecedented wealth and unparalleled authority over his subjects, it is a fascinating look at the isolation, loneliness, and powerlessness as the Royal family members endured being confined, by tradition and custom, where and how to live.
