Empress-Dowager Cixi (1835-1908), was the last empress of China. Her greatest mistake and miscalculation was to support the Boxers - the peasant uprisings against foreigners in China - which led to a military invasion by the Great Powers and the occupation of Beijing. Empress Cixi's efforts at reform were too little and came too late to save the Manchu dynasty. She will be remembered as the world's last absolute ruler to occupy a throne.
