My Fair Princess III

My Fair Princess III

The story starts off with Xiaoyanzi accidentally losing a child. The empress dowager is now increasingly unhappy with Xiaoyanzi, believing she is not ladylike to be Yongqi's wife, particularly in carrying on the family line. At the same time, Qing'er and Xiaoyanzi's brother, Xiao Jian, are also in love. But empress dowager dislikes Xiao Jian, especially after when she finds that Xiaoyanzi and Xiao Jian's father was killed by Qianlong. She thinks that the siblings may want to kill Qianlong for revenge. Before she finds out this fact, they go to Chen's family during a travel, where she meets Zhihua. During the travel, Qianlong develops a crush on Xia Yingying, who he believes to be the reincarnation of Xia Yuhe, but everyone opposes him to take Yingying as his new consort, and during the process, the empress, who is no longer hostile to the main characters, cuts her hair, thus totally losing favor of the emperor. After being sent back, she lives like a nun. The Dowager likes Zhihua more than Xiaoyanzi, and wants Zhihua to marry Yongqi. After returning to the imperial palace, the empress dowager makes a plan to separate Yongqi and Xiaoyanzi, Qing'er and Xiao Jian. She threatens them that she would kill Xiao Jian if Yongqi does not marry Zhihua, and requests that Zhihua should be wife and Xiaoyanzi should be a concubine. To save Xiao Jian's life, they accept the empress dowager's conditions and Xiao Jian is sent away. Yongqi marries Zhihua, as the empress dowager requests, with Xiaoyanzi and Zhihua both as consorts. The empress dowager also sends many servants to come and serve the couple. First, they pretend that they really love each other. However, Zhihua really loves Yongqi, and forces him to bathe with her, which angers Xiaoyanzi. Although Yongqi gives in and marries Zhihua, Zhihua remains a virgin after marrying Yongqi for quite a long time. But eventually, Erkang and Ziwei persuade Xiaoyanzi that Zhihua has the right to have a child of Yongqi. Xiaoyanzi, being convinced, forces Yongqi to enter Zhihua's room. Not long later, Zhihua is found pregnant. Not much time after the news, both Yongqi and Erkang volunteer to go into war with Burma. In the war, when Erkang fights with the eighth 'prince', who he finds that 'he', or rather 'she', is actually the eighth princess, Musha. Musha is attracted to Erkang, and plans to take him back to Burma. Musha disguises another soldier to look like Erkang to make the Qings think that Erkang is dead. After the war ends, Yongqi is created Prince of Rong and Erkang "posthumously" Prince of Xian; Xiao Jian remains in Yunnan, because he is suspicious about Erkang's death. Xiao Jian later discovers Erkang may not be dead and has been captured to Burma. Xiao Jian takes the news back to Yongqi, Xiaoyanzi, Ziwei, Qing'er in Beijing. The group travels to Burma in order to rescue Erkang. They initially ask Qianlong to let them go to Burma to rescue Erkang, but Qianlong doubts the news and refuses to let them go. They resolve to go to Burma on their own by sneaking out of the palace. Xiaoyanzi wants to stay in Yunnan, and she convinces Yongqi to stay with her. Zhihua hears their conversation and gets angry. Qianlong also asks to see the person who brought the news, Xiao Jian, but Xiao Jian refuses to see the emperor. Eventually, Xiao Jian is forced to make an appearance, and Zhihua tells everything that she knows. She tells Qianlong that Xiao Jian and Xiaoyanzi's parents were killed by Qianlong. Xiao Jian attempts to kill Qianlong, who is rescued by Yongqi. Xiao Jian, raged, wants to kill Yongqi, but Xiaoyanzi pushes Xiao Jian out of the way. She convinces Xiao Jian that Yongqi was the love of her life. Qianlong, not knowing what to do, sends them all back to where they came from, and researches what really happened. Then, Qianlong calls them over to tell them what really happened to Xiaoyanzi and Xiao Jian's father. After that, Qianlong decides to let them go. Zhihua has become the sole consort after giving birth to a son with Xiaoyanzi finally degraded to a concubine, but Yongqi also abandons Zhihua and her son, and lives like a commoner with Xiaoyanzi, Qing'er and Xiao Jian. After finding Erkang, Xiao Jian and Qing'er are married. During their wedding, Xiaoyanzi announces that she is pregnant and decides to name her child Nan'er as Ziwei first child was named Dong'er. Meanwhile, the empress dies of illness, and Wet-Nurse Rong commits suicide for her mistress, and the emperor tells the world that both the empress and Prince of Rong have died. Years later, Erkang and the emperor go to visit them. They find that both couples are happy and they both have 4 children, and that Yongqi becomes a doctor. Unaware of the identity of the emperor, Nan'er simply takes him as a senior clansman and politely calls him "Grandfather".
