women in history (3/20): princess taiping of tang (662 – 2 august 713)
princess taiping rendered outstanding service and gained greater prestige. her power became ever more illustrious, and her territory became ever larger. her palace like the emperor’s palace was guarded by soldiers. her three sons were made princes and her relatives and friends were put in important positions. she could always talk directly with the emperor for hours at a time, and they were always adopted. individuals she recommended would be favored and promoted by the emperor; five of seven prime ministers in succession rose with her recommendation. many worthy officials who lost their posts were able to be restored with her support. she discussed and helped decide all military and state affairs.
Another comfort character of mine, i absolutely love them and everything they do (this time in a more platonic way, though). In this sketch here I'm simply filling up one of my personal headcanons: if you are friends with Eret, you won't be dressed like an average person. They will make sure you look good and feel confident.
