History Unwritten

Oct 2, 2020

In which we conclude our story of the first Tsenpo of the Tibetan Empire.

Songtsen is known today as "Songtsen Gampo" which means Songtsen "the Wise". He earned this title for his contributions to Tibetan culture, especially the introduction of writing and the construction of Buddhist temples.

But Songtsen did not work alone - his many talented ministers, and his two Buddhist wives, were just as active, if not more so. Today we follow that story until Songtsen's early death in 649.
