    „Princess“ Der Ling 德龄 (1885 – 1944) was the daughter of Yu Keng (裕庚), a pro-reformist Manchu official who served as minister to Japan and to the French 3rd republic. On return, Der Ling became lady-in-waiting to Empress Dowager Cixi, leaving the court in 1905. „Two Years“ gives historical insights into life at court and Der Ling’s service to the Dowager Empress, essentially a world that has disappeared.
