“Story of Yanxi Palace” Qing Dynasty Qipao-Cheongsam- The Seamtress- Lady Wei Wei..

Premise introduction of延禧攻略 – The Story of Yanxi Palace-  In the sixth year of Qianlong, the young girl Wei Wei sought the death of the long sister and entered the Forbidden City as a palace lady. After investigation, he confirmed that his sister’s death was related to the ridiculous Wang Yehong, and he was determined to seek justice. Queen Fucha succumbed to the ritual, worried that she would go astray and try to give her warmth and help. Under the careful guidance of the Queen, Wei Wei gradually grew into a strong and courteous court lady, and put down resentment and serious life. The unfortunate death of the Queen caused the misunderstanding of Qianlong. The two men were mutually hostile and eventually understood and supported each other. With the courage, the astute and flexible mind, and the broad-minded mind, the ambitions of the courts have been resolved, and they have finally become the shackles of the prosperity of the Qianlong. It was not until before her death that she told the Emperor Fuchao that she had accompanied her to Honglong. She hoped that she would accompany her to Hongyi and help him to be a Mingjun, and that Qianlong knew that Fucha had a good heart. In the 60 years of Emperor Qianlong, Emperor Qianlong declared that the son of Wei Wei, the prince of Yongzheng, was the crown prince. At the same time, he was the queen of the prince, and he finally fulfilled his promise to the Queen of Fucha with his own life.
