According to an article by National Geographic, Chinese Empress Dowager Cixi ruled China from 1861 to 1908 and sustained the empire during a difficult time. Her success at transforming China from a medieval nation to a modern power on the international playing field is attributed to her staunch determination and her clever mind. She was also widely-known for being able to impose her authority in a society that made it hard for women to do so.
