As she outlived her two elder brothers, both of whom died of unknown causes within months of each other several years before Huangdi Chuangjian's death, most saw it as a sign that she was her father's true successor. Thus she was enthroned as the first female monarch of Tianchao.
   
One of only a handful of recognized female rulers of a unified period (aside for the Niang dynasty, which was ruled entirely by women), Huangdi Ziyuan was the longest-serving ruler of the Qiang dynasty.
+
It was also during her reign that the term Tianfei (天妃/''Daughter of Heaven'') was coined. Before her enthronement, official and religious leaders were stuck on whether to used the old term Tianzi (天子/''Son of Heaven''), for her as she was a woman. But she ended their debate by coining the word Tianfei, which would serve as the variation for female monarchs henceforth.

After his mother ascended the throne, he superseded his elder siblings to the throne by eliminating the competition through systematic assassinations made to look like accidents or simple disappearances. So desperate he was for the throne that he did the same with any relative he felt threatened by, including his younger siblings, cousins, and even his own children. He did so slowly over the course of Huangdi Ziyuan's entire reign, and was so meticulously thorough that his mother never even suspected his involvement. Several palace officials and other relatives did suspect him but were never able to prove anything. Their suspicions were enough to try various things to block Jian Han from the throne, but Jian Han maintained a virtual army of loyal retainers that helped him stop attempts to block his succession.
   
He ascended the throne himself following the death of Huangdi Ziyuan. His brief seven-year reign is characterized as tyrannically cruel and oppressive, leading to his own assassination at the hands of his own palace staff.
+
He ascended the throne himself following the death of Huangdi Ziyuan. Within weeks of his coronation, one of his mother's retainers, Guan Jin, led an uprising against him to place another on the throne, but Jian Han had long suspected him and placed a spy in his ranks to keep him informed, allowing him to put down the rebellion with minimal resistance. He also used the rebellion as an excuse to execute anyone he believed to be unloyal to him, even several members of his own family. He was praised by the people for putting down the uprising, but it was shortly afterwards, with the last of his opposition to his rule eliminated, that Huangdi Bukong, to the horror of the people, showed his true colors as a brutal tyrant.
  +
  +
His brief seven-year reign is characterized as tyrannical, brutally cruel and oppressive, with the populace burdened with heavy taxation and unemployment, and anyone who either failed or refused to pay was jailed and then were later executed if they were still unable or refused. Any suspected dissenters were often executed without trial, and anyone found speaking out against Huangdi Bukong were often executed on the spot, even in broad daylight in a crowd full of people. Sometimes Huangdi Bukong ordered the executions of random people for his own amusement or just because he could, regardless of who they were. Huangdi Bukong even banned schools and proper education, believing that such institutions promoted too much free thought, which he believed provoked rebellious sentiment. Huangdi Bukong all but disbanded the imperial court in an attempt to have sole power over the nation.
  +
  +
The aftermath of natural disasters, such as flooding of rivers and the volcanic eruption of Mt. Hong, were also left unattended, resulting in a famine and weakening the country considerably. Huangdi Bukong's excuse for not trying to clean up the aftermath or fix the unemployment was to save money, a poor excuse in the eyes of the court, but Huangdi Bukong didn't care and spent his days indulging in sex and games with various women. Thousands of people died as a result of Huangdi Bukong's tyrannical governance.
  +
  +
All this eventually led to his own assassination at the hands of his own once-loyal ministers and palace staff, many of whom helped put him on the throne, disillusioned with the brutality of Huangdi Bukong's reign.

He was the youngest son of Huangdi Bukong, and the only one to survive to adulthood, including his father's purge of potential threats to his accession. Historians often speculated that Huangdi Bukong left him alive solely so that he still had an heir. He was placed on the throne at the age of fifteen following the assassination of Huangdi Bukong.
   
After thirteen miserable years on the throne, Huangdi Chuantong took his own life without naming an heir. Childless, and with most of the imperial relatives eligible for the throne either scattered or dead since the reign of Huangdi Bukong, the Qiang dynasty ended with him.

| colspan="9" |Founder of the Jing dynasty. Gong of Jing under the Yue dynasty, he came to power when he orchestrated a civil war against the Imperial House of Qingse, supposedly as revenge against the Qingse clan for mistreatment of his family for generations.
  +
Once firmly in power over all of what was Tianchao at the time, Huangdi Tanlan's reign was characterized as oppressive toward the lower class, favoring the nourishment of the nobility while leaving the commoners destitute.
  +
  +
During the reign of Huangdi Liangjiong, Huangdi Tanlan's personal diaries were discovered, and from them it was learned that his revolt and civil war against the Yue dynasty to establish his own was a false cause built on a lie. Huangdi Tanlan claimed he was an illegitimate offspring between a wangzi of the Yue dynasty and the Fan clan, whose mother was tossed aside by his father when she learned she was pregnant. No one was ever able to confirm whether Huangdi Tanlan really was offspring of the Qingse clan or not, but few questioned it at the time. The discovery that it was, in fact, a lie, led to further investigation and the discovery of a brief affair between another elder female member of his family and a wangzi of the Yue dynasty prior to his birth. A still-living co-conspirator admitted that Huangdi Tanlan used the affair to establish cause by falsely passing it off as his mother's affair, whom were no longer alive to dispute his claim, proving his crime.
  +
  +
These discoveries led to the conclusion Huangdi Tanlan just wanted an excuse to become huangdi and establish his own dynasty, to mold the country into the very image of what he perceived to be a perfect empire. These discoveries brought a deep shame to the dynasty that would endure to the end of its reign, though they were not made public until the Zhai dynasty.

A staunch supporter of his father's polices, his short reign was no less oppressive toward the lower class than Huangdi Tanlan's. The second year of his reign saw a massive peasant revolt, referred to by the ruling class of the time as the ''Nijiang Rebellion'' (泥漿叛亂/''Nijiang Panluan''/''Mud Rebellion''). He put down the disorganized rebellion with ease, but he showed his cruelty when he executed nearly a thousand people, even a large number of random innocent civilians who had nothing to do with the rebellion, as a clear and harsh message of the consequences of rebelling against the Jing dynasty.
  +
  +
He died of illness after only six years on the throne.

| colspan="9" |Grandnephew of Huangdi Tanlan and the third ruler of the Jing dynasty.
  +
His pre-reign life was tumultuous. At sixteen, he came across and fell in love at first sight with Qingse Jing (青色精), grandniece of Huangdi Jiaoyong, the final ruler of the Yue dynasty. Only an infant when her family was forced from the throne and into poverty, Qingse Jing had been struggling to provide for her family since she was seven years old, but Fan Kang took pity on her and started to discreetly help her whenever he could.
  +
  +
Over time Qingse Jing came to realize who her mysterious benefactor was and was reluctant to get involved, despite the blossoming feelings she was feeling herself. Her reluctance was shattered when, during a festival, Fan Kang chased her through the streets until he caught her and kissed her deeply before declaring his undying love for her. Qingse Jing accepted, but they both agreed to keep their relationship a secret due to unresolved bitterness between the Imperial House of Fan and the remnants of the Qingse clan.
  +
  +
Against the backdrop of their hidden romance, greedy old loyalists of the Qingse clan, seeking the lost privilege they enjoyed under the Yue dynasty, where scheming to restore the Yue dynasty and put Qingse Jing on the throne.
  +
  +
Fan Kang became huangdi at seventeen when Huangdi Chuan, his first cousin-once-removed, died of illness without an heir.
  +
  +
Immediately after his coronation, Fan Kang had Qingse Jing found and brought to the imperial palace. With nothing to hold them back anymore, Fan Kang asked Qingse Jing to marry him, to the shock of the palace retainers, whom had expected him to eke out some random punishment for her family's supposed crimes. Qingse Jing accepted.
  +
  +
Unable to reconcile the idea of the last daughter of the Yue dynasty marrying a supposed enemy, the old retainers of the previous dynasty revolted on the day of the wedding and attempted to install Qingse Jing as a puppet ruler. Their plan was foiled due to the combined efforts of Fan Kang's most loyal friends and several former loyalists of the Yue dynasty whom had since switched allegiances.
  +
  +
With the rebellion of the old Yue dynasty quelled and the bitter feeling between the clans resolved, Huangdi Liangjiong and Qingse Jing (posthumously name Hunaghou Aidai (皇后愛戴)) repealed the policies oppressive to the lower class that had been in place since Huangdi Tanlan's reign and led the reformation of the Jing dynasty into another golden age. Yet, gaining the trust of the people, whom were still reeling from the oppressive reigns of Huangdi Tanlan and Huangdi Chuan, proved to be a daunting task that they eventually succeeded in achieving.

| colspan="10" |A religious leader-turned-warlord, who proclaimed himself huangdi of the Huang dynasty – also known as Xin Huang (信黃) to differentiate it from the ''Warring States'' kingdom of the same name.
!Courtesy name
+
!Posthumous name
+
Devoted to [[Lingjiao]] faith and loved by his people, his rationale for proclaiming his dynasty was that the Zhai dynasty had long-since lost the ''Mandate of Heaven'' and that he had received a vision from the gods saying that it had been granted to him for the purpose of saving the nation from self-destruction. He died of illness a year and a half following his declaration. Passing on without an heir, his court quickly collapsed and his army scattered.

  +

His rationale for proclaiming his dynasty remains unknown to history. He intended on conquering the rest of Tianchao, but his self-proclaimed dynasty was defeated by Kong Song and his armies following a successful invasion and reconquest of the peninsula two years later. San Yinghao himself was captured and executed. His sons and daughters were spared, but the men were forced to serve in the armies the Kong-controlled Zhai, and later the Gan, court. San Yinghao's eldest daughter, San An (傘安), was forced to marry Kong Song's nephew, Kong Zao, but would later follow him when her husband defected to Yong Zhai Kingdom.

Huangdi Shui Bude Mingming, was a monstrous tyrannical ruler so cruel and evil that his name still lives infamy. He used the title Shendi (神帝/''God Emperor'') during his reign as a reflection of his vanity in attempt to make himself seemingly a god, but was given the title Xiuhuang (羞皇/''Disgraced Emperor'') as part of his posthumous name upon his overthrow.
   
Jiti mage texts call his curse the Xie'e Juexing (邪惡覺醒/Evil Awakening). It's described as the worst of all curses. Should he be awakened he would take his revenge by destroying all of Tianxia; which, in modern terms, would include all of Qirsyllviar, not just Marlakcor.
+
Throughout his reign he committed numerous atrocities, including: raising taxes despite a famine, massacring entire populations of several towns and villages who failed to pay just for sport, executing random people for amusement, forcing kinsmen to fight to the death, kidnapping hundreds of random women for his harem to fuel is lust, killing many for fun later, and many more besides.

So infamous is he that during and since his reign his names came to viewed as synonymous with evil, to the point that people fear to even speak them, a fear that persists into present day; he is commonly referred to in conversation by his unique temple name: Huangdi Shui Bude Mingming (皇帝誰不得命名/''Emperor Who Shall Not be Named'').

  +
He was finally overthrown and his dynasty replaced after a year-long civil war known to history as Muren's Rebellion (木人謀反). Captured alive when the capital fell, he was denied a proper execution and burial. He was instead cursed and buried alive in a tomb that was more of a prison, the location of which was purposely scratched from history to prevent anyone from finding him.

While lauded as a hero for ending the tyrannical rule of Huangdi Fengkuang Guaiwu and the Qiu dynasty, he was well known for his drunken temperament and general lack of interest in actually ruling Tianchao. Because of this, he is also widely regarded as an inefficient ruler whose policies, or lack thereof, destabilized the regime and the empire, setting the stage for civil war following his death.

While lauded as a hero for ending the tyrannical rule of Huangdi Shui Bude Mingming and the Qiu dynasty, he was well known for his drunken temperament and general lack of interest in actually ruling the empire. Because of this, he is also widely regarded as an inefficient ruler whose policies, or lack thereof, destabilized the regime and the empire, setting the stage for civil war following his death. His inactive rulership also caused the government to descend into corruption and saw the formation of various factions, either supporting one of his brothers to succeed him or for someone else to replace the dynasty.
   
 
He died suddenly during the seventeenth year of his reign. His cause of death is unknown, but historians have long suspected that he was somehow assassinated, perhaps by his own hunaghou.

The reign and conflict of his assumed son and brothers, part of the wider ''War of the Seven Emperors'', is considered by most historians as an interregnum between his death and the founding of the Gun dynasty. Yet, Pang Long, also known as Huangdi Xiong, is traditionally counted by historians and scholars among the official list of huangdi as the final monarch of the Jia dynasty for conclusionary reasons.

While women had achieved high military and political status many thousands of times under previous dynasties, they were difficult to attain and required great merit before they were even considered for those statuses. Under the Niang dynasty, women's rights and status were elevated to equal of that of men, given them equal opportunity, which saw the rise of many influential characters of both sexes throughout the dynasty's tenure.

| colspan="9" |The founder of the Qin dynasty.
Born a slave, Yuan Mulan endured harsh conditions under the tyrannical slave system of the Ai dynasty. When she was a teenager, Yuan Mulan started to speak out against slavery and the oppression of women under patriarchal traditions. Even though she endured harsh punishments for speaking out, including whippings and stripping her nude in public, she kept her head high and never let herself be silenced.
+
Her parents were named Sheng Jin (繩筋) and Yuan Lin (媛琳). Yuan Lan's mother, Yuan Lin, was born a commoner woman from a well off merchant family. A bad investment on her father's part led to debts and her being sold into slavery to pay them off. Not long after, Yuan Lin met Sheng Jin, another slave, who became her constant companion until he died. Yuan Lan, the future ruler of Tianchao, was born some time after, and they decided that she would have her mother's surname rather than her father's.
   
Influential and charismatic, she accumulated some sympathetic listeners who turned into devoted followers; among them was Tian Airen (甜愛人); styled Fengmi (蜂蜜), a young noblegirl who was her oldest friend and sworn sister, and lover.
+
Born a slave, Yuan Lan endured harsh conditions under the tyrannical slave system of the Gun dynasty. Her father died as a result of these conditions when she was just eight years old.
   
When she was twenty-one Yuan Mulan led a slave revolt in Dongtan (東灘), the imperial capital of the time. Her uprising was repulsed form the city, but her cause attracted followers from all corners of the empire, women ''and'' sympathetic men, until they had grown into an army thousands-strong within just a few weeks.

When she was a teenager, Yuan Lan started to speak out against slavery and the oppression of women under patriarchal traditions. Even though she endured harsh punishments for speaking out, including whippings and stripping her nude in public, she kept her head high and never let herself be silenced.
   
At the behest of her most loyal retainers who believed that the sudden growth and support of her rebellion meant that the Ai dynasty had lost the Mandate of Heaven and had been granted to her Yuan Mulan declared herself huangdi, naming her dynasty "Niang ()," and waged war against the Ai dynasty, a conflict known to history as the ''Cixing War'' (雌性戰爭) (3277–3284TJH/2856–2863AFZ). The final conquest of the capital seven years later saw the deposition of Huangdi Tanpan – who committed suicide once he had heard Niang forces had breached the palace defenses rather than be executed or forced to abdicate – and the end of the Ai dynasty.

Influential and charismatic, she accumulated some sympathetic listeners, both freemen and fellow slaves, and even some sympathetic nobles, some who turned into devoted followers; among them was Tian Mili (甜蜜梨); styled Aifeng (爱蜂), a young noblegirl who was her oldest friend and sworn sister, and lover.
   
Once firmly in power, she outlawed slavery, a policy that endured until the Arslan-ruled Lin dynasty, and ushered in a golden age that lasted until the end of the dynasty. She also revitalized the empire with various welfare projects that improved the lives of people of all races and social classes; and for this reason she is firmly acknowledged as one of the greatest rulers in Tianzu history.
+
When she was twenty-one, Yuan Lan's mother was arrested and imprisoned in an attempt to shut her down, but that was the final straw for her. With support from Tian Mili's family, led a slave revolt in Dongtan (東灘), the imperial capital of the time. Her uprising was repulsed from the city, but word of her cause spread far and wide and attracted followers from all corners of the empire, women ''and'' men, until they had grown into an army many-thousands-strong within just a few weeks.
  +
  +
A slave no more, at the behest of her most loyal retainers – who believed that the sudden growth and support of her rebellion meant that the Gun dynasty had lost the ''Mandate of Heaven'' and had been granted to her – Yuan Lan declared a new dynasty, naming her dynasty "Qin (親)," and coined the imperial title of "Niangdi (娘帝)." Her declaration was met with applause from her entire army and retinue. Her cause then waged war against the Gun dynasty, a conflict known to history as the ''Cixing War'' (雌性戰爭) (3277 – 3284ᴛᴊʜ/2856 – 2863ᴀꜰᴢ). The final conquest of the capital seven years later saw the deposition of Huangdi Tanpan and the end of the Gun dynasty. Huangdi Tanpan committed suicide once he had heard Qin forces had breached the palace defenses rather than be executed or forced to abdicate.
  +
  +
Once firmly in power, Yuan Lan freed her mother, who was surprised to learn her daughter was now the ruler of the empire, and outlawed slavery – a policy that endured until the inauguration of the Arslan-ruled Lin dynasty – and ushered in a golden age that lasted until the end of the dynasty. She also revitalized the empire with various welfare projects that improved the lives of people of all races and social classes; and for these reasons she is firmly acknowledged as one of the greatest rulers in Tianzu history.

| colspan="9" |First child and eldest daughter of Taishang Niangdi Baolan and elder sister of Niangdi Lingxing. Initially passed over to be heir to the throne by her mother. Tomboyish and adventurous, she held no grudge against her and instead opted to pursue a military career over a political one. Achieving an astounding record in the field, mainly against the Unghwa kingdoms in Guangdai, Yuan Jin was awarded the title of Taiwei – one of the offices of the Liugexia and the highest military rank in the Tianzu army – by her sister; one of Niangdi Lingxing's first acts when their mother fully turned power over to her.

When Niangdi Lingxing died in childbirth with her only daughter and heir, Yuan Chanjuan, a newborn infant, Yuan Jin was elected to take over as ruler. Despite being passed over for the throne initially, and she never held any desire for the throne, she proved herself a capable ruler. Niangdi Huangjing was killed in battle during a war of expansion.

By her will, she was succeeded by Yuan Chanjuan, upon her death; yet upon the death of her niece, who died from illness without any living children or naming an heir, her own daughter, Yuan Qiqi (Niangdi Kuihua), took over as ruler.

| colspan="9" |Younger sister of Niangdi Zisi. Titled Kongling Ken Wangfei (空灵肯王妃/''Princess Ken of Kongling'') during the reign of her aunt and sister, Yuan Meiying reluctantly came to power at the age of twenty-six after killing Niangdi Zisi by stabbing her sister in the heart. They had been close in their youth, but, unable to bear seeing the tyrant that her sister had become, she made the decision to assassinate Niangdi Zisi. Her decision to kill her sister, whom she still loved, caused her endless heartbreak.
  +
Despite never having sought the throne for herself, in fact she asked to be severely punished for the crime of regicide, she was elected niangdi by both her family and the imperial court. She initially declined the throne, instead advocating for some of her other female relatives. She only yielded to the government's decision to install her as monarch when it was suggested that her intention was to end the dynasty.
  +
  +
Depressed and initially unwilling and to take charge of her nation, for several years she left most affairs to her ministers and shut herself away in the palace, only coming to court as a formality, earning her the deserved nickname "''Nage Yanwu Niangdi'' (那個厭惡娘帝/''The Reluctant Empress'')." Her unwillingness to rule in turn allowed some of the corrupt officials from Niangdi Zisi's reign to continue their illegal activities relatively unhindered.
  +
  +
Six years into her reign, Niangdi Bugan finally took charge of her empire when her own daughter, Yuan Tudi, the future Niangdi Liang, admonished her for letting her guilt blind her from what was truly important: her people. The reality check from her daughter snapped her out of her depression and she became a more active ruler, revitalizing the empire that had been in decline and ending the corruption of the officials that had been running rampant since her predecessor's reign.

| colspan="9" |Granddaughter of Niangdi Xiangliao and the last ruler of the Qin dynasty. Her reign and the dynasty ended when she was tricked into abdicating to Luo Hao, the Gong of Mei. It was only when the ''Sisters of the Yellow Dragon'' rebelled against the Mei dynasty weeks later that she finally realized her mistake. But, she and the former imperial family were prevented from taking any action when Luo Hao had his agents assassinate her and many of her kin, preventing any resurgence of the Qin dynasty.
  +
Several members of the Yuan clan, including Niangdi Chuai's son and her two daughters, were spared this fate and later fought against the Mei dynasty, but the remnants of the Qin dynasty were never able to return to power.

| colspan="9" |Twin brother of Niangdi Ci (Yuan Jiang). They were close, nigh inseparable, in their childhood, but grew apart as Yuan Jiang was being groomed to take the throne.
  +
Six years into the reign of his sister, he attempted to orchestrate a coup to become huangdi. While he briefly deposed his sister and proclaimed himself huangdi, his coup failed when the loyalists of Niangdi Ci proved too great. But he amassed a great support from many opponents of the women-ruled dynasty. His following turned into an army that retook the capital, expelling the loyalist government. Niangdi Ci still managed to escape and Yuan Huan's followers waged a five-year civil war to hold the throne.
  +
  +
Yuan Huan was defeated but not executed. He remained in prison the rest of his life, visited solely by Niangdi Ci until their final days.

He came to power when "convinced/tricked" Huangdi Chuai, the last huangdi of the Niang dynasty, to abdicate in his favor. A conservative traditionalist, Huangdi Ganju became huangdi purposely to end the women-ruled Niang dynasty and reinstate male-preference primogeniture for the first time in five centuries.

The Gong of Mei and the last Chengxiang under the Qin dynasty, he came to power when he tricked Niangdi Chuai, the last monarch of the Qin dynasty, to abdicate in his favor. A conservative traditionalist educated in the pre-Qin ways, Huangdi Ganju became huangdi purposely to end the women-ruled Qin dynasty and reinstate male-preference primogeniture for the first time in centuries.
  +
  +
However, his dynasty did not begin peacefully, as the [[Qirsyllvian Non-State Organizations & Societies#Sisters of the Yellow Dragon|Sisters of the Yellow Dragon]] – a women-only Jiti military order founded during the ''Western, Central & Northern Dynasties'' period that had served as the personal army of the Niangdi since the founding of the Qin dynasty – rebelled and began the forty-year ''Yellow Dragon Rebellion'' (黃龍叛亂/''Huanglong Panluan''), a civil war so devastating that it destabilized the Mei dynasty to a point it couldn't recover.
  +
  +
It is for these reasons that he is remembered infamously.
