In 1735, Emperor Qianlong was enthroned, and Ruyi, a sweetheart who grew up with him, entered the palace as an imperial concubine according to the ritual.
From then on, they staged a marriage in the palace, from acquaintance and love to lose and ruin.
When the new emperor ascended to the throne, Ruyi became a concubine because of her childhood friendship with Emperor Qianlong and was ostracized by everyone. The Queen Mother had a feud with Ruyi’s family, so Ruyi was in trouble.
At this time, Emperor Qianlong also faced the same problem of Empress Dowager taking power and the old ministers charging the affairs of state.
During the change of power, Qianlong and Ruyi supported each other through difficult times until they cleared the obstacles.
After years of hard work, Qianlong pushed Ruyi to the position of Empress and shared the world with her.
However, after becoming Empress, Ruyi discovered that Qianlong has grown from a teenage husband to a mature emperor, who is so suspicious and fickle. His imperial selfishness was constantly revealed, and the trust and love between them were gradually fading.
But Ruyi continued to hold on to her good memories and her duties as empress until her death.
