First, through her husband Gojong, through the empress, through Jungjong and Uijong until 690, and through his reign until 690, for 40 years, China grew bigger, government corruption decreased, and culture and economy were revitalized. Wu Zetian was originally the concubine of King Taejong. In 655, she married King Gojong, the son of Taejong, and became the Empress. Before issuing an order, King Gojong asked her opinion on all matters. When King Gojong became unable to rule the country due to an illness in his later years, he delegated the responsibility to Wu Zetian. Wu Zetian received certain honors and privileges that the Chinese Empress did not enjoy after the war.
