This essay will argue that her struggles to dominate the empire, first with her husband and later in her own right, not only became an example for later empresses who dominated dynasties but - perhaps more importantly - challenges any simplistic view of the subordinate position of women in Chinese history. Across the centuries she appears to us as a powerful and significant historical figure in her own right, whose actions played an important role in determining the history of the early Han empire.
