“Your Majesty is an illustrious monarch whose name will reverberate throughout the ages, but you are destined for a lonely life.

Greetings, Ninth Uncle
When Li Chengjing woke up again, he was still petrified. Ninth Uncle — although it had been years since someone last called him that, he still remembered this title well, especially because he had been Cheng Yuanjing for longer than Li Chengjing.
It took Li Chengjing a while to recognize this place as the Kunning Palace, the residence of the empress.
