As the emperor of China lies dying, a cut-throat battle for the throne goes on behind the scenes. While it may be undisputed that an emperor leaves his crown to his son, his majesty has many sons, most of whom are willing to kill for such power. While the royal will states that the next emperor will be the 14th prince, a nefarious plan by the fourth prince would have the writing changed to feature his own name. As still other princes vie for positions of power and chancellors align their loyalties, a web of betrayal and deceit is created that will culminate in consequences that will echo throughout history.
