While China's last emperors called it home, their subjects called it…The Forbidden City.

Peer through the massive gates and gain access into the heart of the world's largest imperial palace. The Forbidden City: Inside the Court of China's Emperors ushers you into the City's most private quarters, offering a tantalizing glimpse into the lives of the people who lived within the very imposing, very private, imperial enclave. Through intimate encounters with the luxurious objects they used each day and official accounts of their lives, you will meet the emperors, their families, court officials, concubines, and eunuchs - all those who paid a price to live within the Forbidden City's walls.
