WHAT DOES WU HOU MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Wu Hou

Wu Zetian

Wu Zetian , also known as Wu Zhao, Wu Hou, in Tang dynasty, Tian Hou, and in English as Empress Consort Wu, or by the deprecated term, "Empress Wu", was a Chinese sovereign, who ruled officially under the name of her self-proclaimed "Zhou dynasty", from 690 to 705. She was the only female emperor in the Chinese feudal dynasties spanning more than 4,000 years. However, she had previous imperial positions under both Emperor Taizong of Tang and his son Emperor Gaozong of Tang, of the Tang dynasty of China. Wu was a concubine of Emperor Taizong; after his death she married his successor and 9th son, Emperor Gaozong, officially becoming Gaozong's furen in 655, although having considerable political power previous to this. After Gaozong's debilitating stroke in 690, Wu Zetian ruled as effective sovereign until 705. She is the only woman to rule China in her own right.
