The Dragon Queen is the remarkable story of Empress Myeongseong, Korea’s last empress. A poor orphan girl, Ja-young becomes the leader of the Hermit Kingdom through her intelligence and great courage. She leads her country into the modern world while fighting the Japanese imperialists and her lazy husband’s father, the Daewongun, Korea’s treacherous regent.

The story is told to State Department official Nate Blackburn by Anna Carlson (from Daughters of the Dragon) as war between North and South Korea threatens. In the story, Nate sees surprising similarities with the current situation in Korea and realizes true leadership requires great courage, which is often at odds with the political establishment. He decides to push for a peaceful solution to the Korean situation.
