#116 – Tang 28: I, Xuānzong

ACast Link

Li Yi was never trained to be emperor. not only was he the thirteenth son of Emperor Xianzong, but he’d been ruthlessly mocked and belittled his whole life by his entire family for being an idiot, an invalid, and a mute. But when his hated nephew dies in 846, he’s going to shock the world by revealing he was faking it the whole time, and go on to become the last good emperor of the Tang before its final bow.

Time Period Covered:
846-859 CE
