A tiny glimpse of Chinese history

I did promise a post on the danger of factions, but until I get that written, let me offer this glimpse of Chinese history. The story details the rags to riches story of a Chinese woman, Lady Mei, a child concubine who rose to become one of the most powerful women in China in the 1400s, in a very fascinating Washington Post article by Michael E. Miller: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/05/15/chinese-tomb-reveals-how-a-teenage-concubine-became-a-powerful-duchess/?tid=hp_mm&hpid=z3
