Abstract: The whole society of Tang Dynasty attached great importance to education, and the imperial family was no exception. In addition to emphasizing the education of princes and kings, the princesses of Tang Dynasty also received good family education. The family education of Tang Dynasty princesses represents the highest level of women’s family education in Tang Dynasty. They have special learning institutions and female teachers to carry out daily education for them. The contents of education cover etiquette, calligraphy, art and poetry. With the rise and fall of the country and the development of society, the Tang royal family忆s educational concept for princesses has also changed, and princesses in different periods have very different "portraits" for their groups. On the whole, many of them have excellent cultural and artistic qualities and have written their own splendid chapters in history books.

Key words: princesses of Tang Dynasty, family education, cultural literacy, education concept
