Summary
 

During the Ching Dynasty, Empress Dowager Cixi gave birth to a son, which won the heart of Emperor Xianfeng. Although his country was in turmoil, Xianfeng still indulged in the pleasures of the court. Upon hearing that the united armies of Britian and France had deployed their battleships, Xianfeng took refuge in the Reha temporary palace. The foreign invaders ransacked and plundered the Yuanming Palace, and set their torches to burn down the "Palace of all Palaces". (Ryan Miller)
