    why do you even bother posting the empress pics? -what?

    she's one of the worst empress ever during the Qing Dynasty. So cruel!
     
  3. yeah she is... but we can't change history... i just thought it's interesting to c wot kinda clothes ppl wore back then and compare to wot they have on TV

    Those are cool pictures. It remind me of the Movie Duke Of Mount Deer 1996 with Steven Ma as the Emperor.

    I'm not sure if it's true, but I think back then "Fat" people consider beautiful because they are well fed (like richer family)
