SOURCES & Further Reading: Suetonius' "Twelve Caesars", Plutarch's "Parallel Lives: Julius Caesar", "China: A History" by John Keay, "Song of Everlasting Sorrow" by Bai Juyi, Smithsonian Magazine & Biography.com entries on Marie Antoinette & Louis XVI.

Bai Juyi's poetry was scathing at first but becomes calmer and more melancholic. At first, he discredited the emperor who put the entire situation to himself, but near the end, Bai Juyi appreciated their love. He mixed realism at first but more and more confident to use mythological scenario later.

China has one bad couple to rule them all: Daji and Zhou/Di Xin. Daji was a sadistic manipulator that would disgust even Dé Sade himself. Xin was a simp who catered to her every, horrifying whim. Oh and don’t worry, that inflicting of pain was DEFINITELY a bedroom thing for her. Xin was no better in response to her, unsurprising, infidelity; killing her suitor then feeding the ground up remains to the father, Ji Chang. After imprisoning Ji, the youngest Chang son would lead a rebellion with the people, and with the help of the military of the Shang dynasty itself (they turned at the first chance they could, go figure, almost makes you think Machiavelli was wrong). The whole affair ends with Zhou pulling a cowards way out, by fire (self-immolation), and Daji getting the chopping block. ... and scene.

how do you not mention Shah Jahan building the Taj Mahal for his dead wife then cut the hands of every worker to ever worked on it so another couldn't be made again just to marry her sister .. only to be overthrowned and imprisoned by his son. AND we still call it a love story for god knows what reason XD

The reason that the poem is set in the Han dynasty:1. It's still in Tang dynasty,so talking about the emperor's grandfather is not quite emmm?(I have no accurate words to describe this but I think you know)2. It's a different version of the history,a more romantic story without the part of his sons wife and other things 3. The author Baijuyi was an excellent poet,so we just focus on his touching and beautiful words(in Chinese),now think about the story itself,it's really weird (≖_≖ )

9:49 The way my Euro teacher put it was the a queens ONLY duty in life is to make babies. When Marie Antoinette wasn’t doing her sole purpose in life, people talked. What’ll happen if there no king to France after all?

As soon as I saw a couple of Chinese heads floating around I *knew* Yang Guifei was gonna show up. Truly the most epic of romance trainwrecks in Chinese history. edit: and then the words "Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette" were spoken, and I went, "Oh. Oh *no*. Not those poor bastards. :("

I've been thinking about this raw Marie Antoinette quote, and this seems like a good place to put it. "I was a queen, and you took away my crown; a wife, and you killed my husband; a mother, and you deprived me of my children. My blood alone remains: take it, but do not make me suffer long."

Actually Suetonius, who is the only one to mention that Caesar called Brutus his son at the Ides of March, wrote that he said it in Greek, "kai es teknon"

About that perfume story... I’m french and in school this isn’t what we’re taught about how the King and his family got caught. The blame is put on a coin with the kings face on it. Also in the Carnavalet museum in Paris you can find objects with the hairs of Marie-Antoinette and her children, less than a meter away from a toy guillotine, and yes this is a thing outside of the Adam’s family. Yikes!
