To te7037...
1. Although it did show that she was sent to a convent to become a nun, that incident was based on the prophecy that the great Tang dynasty would collapse if the emperor married a Yang female. This was not true at all according to the real event. She was sent to a convent after she caught the attention of the old emperor during a family meal. At that time, she was married to the emperor's son.

2. The emperor in this series was a young man, which was again a big mistake. The real emperor was an old man and he was the father-in-law of Yang Yuk Huan.

I think you are talking about "Lady Wu", only lady emperess of China - Wu Zhe Tian.
