Can’t get enough of Emperor Qianlong (Nie Yuan) and Empress Fucha (Qin Lan) from the hit Chinese historical drama Story of Yanxi Palace? The two are reunited in the recent issue of Cosmopolitan China.
Emperor Qianlong has many women in his harem, but for me, he and Empress Fucha are the real pair. Lady Fucha is the emperor’s first wife from before his ascension. Several historical records mentioned the emperor’s great favor of Empress Fucha, even dedicating poems to her name. Sadly, this couple is destined to part due to Empress Fucha’s early death. Let’s just imagine these photos as the depiction of the royal couples’ meeting in modern times.
