(Kim Hye Ri), herself was from Koryo but she resents her motherland for her parents sold her to the Mongols. There, she appealed to the Mongolian King, had his son, killed the original Queen, and took her spot. The Mongolian King listens to everything she says so technically, she rules Mongolia as well as Koryo. Mongolia has two kings. One is the head king- Ki Hwang Hoo's husband, and the other is just a king. The head king's son, Kulan Taeja, and the king's daughter, Nokuk Gongju
(Suh Ji Hye), were supposed to marry, but Ki Hwang Hoo realized that if the two married, then they will have great power, later suppressing her son's chance of becoming king. Therefore, she abolishes Kulan Taeja from the kingdom and makes Nokuk Gongju
marry Kong Min Wang
. Nokuk Gongju
only agrees to marry Kong Min Wang
if he is made King of Koryo. Ki Hwang Hoo
promises to make him king, and the two get married. Coming to Koryo, Nokuk Gongju

Therefore, previously, many feared the Mongolian Princesses more than they did the king. Because of this, the people of Koryo expect the same out of her. However, she is different and she grows to truly love her husband, Kong Min Wang, and Koryo. She helps set the country in order. Shin Don
(Son Chang Min) later becomes the chief advisor of the Kong Min Wang
and Nokuk Gongju
