A burst of laughter came through, with a bit of disdain. Yun Shang acted as if she hadn't heard the words. She played with the goblet in her hand, and coldly looked at the stage.

Qi Lang fell into a deep thought. He made a obeisance to Yun Shang and asked, "Your Highness, do you like this drama?"

Yun Shang felt all eyes were on her, so she smiled and said calmly, "If she is a showgirl, the performance should be more outstanding, but not fit for the role. The role should be more generous and overbearing."

"A general is not supposed to be taken charge of by a woman. And the battlefield is not a place for women either." A loud voice was heard from downstairs. As everyone was paying attention to Yun Shang, the voice was loud and was deafening.

Qi Lang's face slightly changed, "How dare you!"

Yun Shang gave a wee smile and looked at the man. He was in his thirties and had a moustache. He seemed to be one of Qi Lang's subordinates. "General Qi is right. You are too bold. I can punish you for disrespecting me."

The man snorted, "I was just being honest. It's indeed your highness. You are putting on airs."

"What you said just now was disrespectful not to me, but to the first Empress of the the State of Ning!" Yun Shang's eyes grew colder. When everyone was in a daze, she said, "Not long after the founding of the State of Ning, Empress Xiao, she went out to war with the first Emperor. There were even many wins that were won by her own hands. The first Emperor of the State of Ning said that most of the country's territory was under the leadership of Empress Xiao. You just said that the general should not be a woman, but Empress Xiao was conferred the title of General Qimin by the fist Emperor of our country. You said that the battle should not be fought by women. The general had spent more than ten years on the battlefield, and she even went to the battlefield when she was pregnant. Are you disrespectful to Empress Xiao? "

The man looked sullen. After a long while, he asked, "do you refer to yourself as the Empress Xiao?"

Yun Shang chuckled. She glanced at the man, and said, "Empress Xiao is of course, a model for wom

believe a woman's martial arts skill might better than a man's. But I don't believe a woman's military tactics decision is much better than mine."

Hearing this, Yun Shang knew that the man had but her hook. She sneered, "do you want to compete with me? Or do you want to compete with my maid?"

"Okay, there are three questions. If your maid can answer them all, I will surrender," The man stood up. Yun Shang saw him. He was dressed in cyan and didn't have the temperament of a warrior. Instead, he looked polite and refined. He was like a military teacher.

Yun Shang looked at Qian Yin. Qian Yin smiled and said, "Your Highness, you have taught me the art of war for a long time. Don't worry. I won't embarrass you."

Yun Shang nodded, "Then please, start."

The man thought for a moment before he said, "Ten years ago, the State of Yelang attacked the western city of the State of Ning. Their forces were 800 thousand, and the State of Ning only had 300000 soldiers to defend the city. In the end, the State of Yelang was defeated, and our state didn't employ any soldier. Why?"

Qian Yin smiled faintly, "The art of war has its own style. The best the soldiers are used to plot while the lowest is to attack the city. The State of Yelang was on offensive, and the State of Ning was in leadership of Prince Jing at that time. He focused on politics and war. The winner would be the weakest, and the loser would be the first."
