As its often been said, a lot of fiction is actually based on facts. While most of the shows we watch are fictional stories filled with dashing heroes and starry-eyed lovers, did you know that some of them were actually inspired by real events and real people?

This drama was actually based on the story of Queen Dangyeong (Park Min Young) from the Joseon period who came into power in 1506 alongside King Jungjong (Yeon Woo Jin).

While her title was restored later after her death, her story still remains famous due to her having such a short reign as queen.
