Fate does not always depend on us.
It depends on us whether we deserve to accept the conditions of fate. And can we survive. It used to be that way: in Korea, in the XIX century. Minh girl lived there. At the age of eight she became an orphan, and her relatives took her out of grace. When Ming grew a little, her relatives sent her to Seoul - maybe someone would look at her there? And lucky, really. Perceived Tevongun, Grand Prince of Korea. Looking: cute girl. There is no father and mother, no one to interfere in palace intrigues. And it is very convenient to use this girl to influence her son, Kojon. Emperor of Korea. Not for himself, Tevongun took the girl, but to strengthen his power over his son. The orphan is very helpful, will be a timid obedient wife. And will do what the father-in-law says.
Ming became the emperor's main wife. He had many wives and concubines. And this Kojon Min didn’t like it - it hurt ugly! Wow, how picky. Here, in the photo it is. For five years, Kojon ignored his wife Ming. And she smiled a Korean smile and nodded.When the emperor had a son from a concubine, Min gave the concubine a rich gift. And warmly congratulated her husband on the birth of her son. Because she wanted to live. Therefore, she showed diplomacy, did not turn into hysterics. And you know, the emperor was so surprised that he paid attention to her. And then somehow I fell in love with it. And he and Min also had a son. He died, poor thing. And Min blamed for his death two concubines, with whom the emperor was close. This they conjured! The concubines were executed. And Min later gave birth to another son. And its position was consolidated.
No one saw the face of Empress Ming. She has never been photographed. And at the meetings of the State Council, she sat behind a screen and made wise decisions. Korea from a "hermit country" has become a mighty power under its rule. And Kojon is incredible! - no more children were born from concubines - he forgot about them and think. He loved Min. And she fought against Japanese aggression, brought Korea closer to Russia - this then saved the emperor's life. When the Japanese killed Ming, he hid in the Russian embassy.
And she was killed, unfortunately. The Japanese military broke into the bedroom and killed all the ladies of the court - they did not know which of them was the empress. The faithful dignitary tried to protect Min, he spread his arms and stood in front of her - but his hands were cut off, and Min was killed.And the dignitary crawled to the royal bedroom, died on the threshold, like a faithful dog - he loved the empress. This father-in-law, Devongun, hated her and organized this conspiracy with the Japanese. Such was the fate of the Empress Ming. Whom they hated and loved; and she loved her country and her children. And she accepted her fate with dignity.
Then the Japanese still occupied Korea. And Kojon had to sign a renunciation of the throne. He signed. He was a weak-willed person. We do not choose the character either ... But when he slipped the paper with the words that his wife Min was of low origin, Kojon rejected the document. And he said, like a real emperor, "you can cut off my hands. Let's go. And let's see, maybe they will sign this paper?" It is worth it to respect him. He lost the country. But he did not betray the last - his love. His Ming, which was his happiness.
