  • February 22 – Empress Wu Zetian is deposed in a coup d'état organized by her chancellor Zhang Jianzhi after a 15-year reign. His chief ministers gain support from some generals to seize the imperial palace and execute the Zhang brothers. They reinstall her son Zhong Zong whom she deposed 15 years ago, restoring the Tang dynasty. This marks the end of the short-lived Zhou dynasty in China.
