1. The three kingdoms of Wei, Wu, Shu and others.|
**Zhang Jiao** or Zhang Jue (140-188) (Simplified Chinese: Traditional Chinese:Pinyin: Zhang Jiao or Zhang Jue) was the leader of the Yellow Turbans during the period of the late Eastern Han Dynasty in China. He was said to be a sorcerer, and was a follower of Taoism.Giving himself the title of "Great Teacher", he led the Yellow Turban Rebellion with his younger brothers Zhang Bao and Zhang Liang in a campaign called "The Way of Heaven" or "The Way of Peace". The Yellow Turbans claimed to be Taoists, and rebelled against the Han because of the high taxes placed against them. They conquered much in the early years of the rebellion, but when the Han sent out a distress call, gaining the talent of people such as Liu Bei and Cao Cao, the lack of ability of his generals showed. The Yellow Turbans, however, were still a strong threat until the death of Zhang Jiao, when, due to a lack of a good leader, it imploded on itself.
So after the defeat of Zhang Jiao was, the dark tyrant Dong Zhuo came about!|
**Dong Zhuo** (Pinyin: Dong Zhuo) (? – 192) was a warlord during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms Period in ancient China. He seized control of Luoyang in 189 after the capital fell into chaos following the death of Emperor Ling and a bloody clash between the powerful eunuch faction and the court officials. Dong Zhuo subsequently deposed the rightful heir to the throne and instated the puppet Emperor Xian.
However, Dong Zhuo's tyrannical and cruel ways angered many, and warlords around the country formed a coalition against him, forcing him to move the capital west to Chang'an. Dong Zhuo was eventually assassinated by his adoptive son Lu Bu as part of a plot by Interior Minister Wang Yun.
And thus came the three kingdoms of the Han Dynasty.|
**Cao Cao** (pinyin: Cao Cao; Wade-Giles: Ts'ao Ts'ao) (155 – March 15, 220) was a regional warlord and the last Chancellor of Eastern Han Dynasty who rose to great power during the last years of the Eastern Han Dynasty in ancient China. As one of the central figures of the Three Kingdoms period, he laid down foundations for what was to become the Kingdom of Wei (also known as Cáo Wèi) and was posthumously titled Emperor Wu of Wei. In literature, folklore and popular culture Cao Cao is largely portrayed as a villainous character. The fictional and folkloric Cao Cao often obscures the historic Cao Cao who was a brilliant ruler, military strategist and poet.
**Liu Bei** (Chinese:pinyin: Liu Bei) (161 – 223), courtesy name Xuande, was a powerful warlord and the founding emperor of the Kingdom of Shu during the Three Kingdoms era in ancient China. Having risen up from the commoner class, he was initially a small player in the massive civil war leading up to the collapse of the Eastern Han Dynasty. In 214, using strategy of his chief advisor Zhuge Liang, Liu Bei conquered Yizhou (present day Sichuan and Guizhou) and at last established the foundation for his kingdom. In 221, Liu Bei declared himself emperor in an effort to carry on the lineage of the Han Dynasty. He was succeeded by Liu Shan, who eventually surrendered to the Kingdom of Wei in 263.
**Sun Jian** (155 – 191) was a military general and minor warlord during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms era in ancient China. He allied himself with Yuan Shu in 190 when warlords from eastern China formed a coalition to oust Dong Zhuo, a tyrannical warlord who held the puppet Emperor Xian in his power. Although he controlled neither many troops nor much land, Sun Jian's personal bravery and resourcefulness were feared by Dong Zhuo, who placed him among Yuan Shao, Yuan Shu and Liu Biao, the most influential men at that time. After the coalition disbanded in the next year, China fell into massive civil war. In 191, Sun Jian was killed in battle during an offensive campaign against Liu Biao.
**Gongsun Zan** (pinyin: Gongsun Zan; Wade-Giles: Kungsun Ts'an) (?-199), courtesy name Bogui, was a warlord of northern China active toward the end of the second century AD.
He was commander of a cavalry force and served on the northern and eastern frontiers of the Han Dynasty empire fighting against various non-Chinese peoples. In 191, Gongsun enlisted as part of the coalition against Dong Zhuo, the nobleman who had seized power in Luoyang and held the emperor hostage, but used the opportunity to enlarge his territories. In late 191, Gongsun Zan appointed the later great Shu general, Zhao Yun. Zhao Yun later joined another member of the attack on Dong Zhuo, Liu Bei. Throughout the 190s he fought a series of battles with the warlord Yuan Shao for control of north China, starting with the Battle of Jieqiao. He was defeated by Yuan in 199 and committed suicide.
**Meng Huo** , King of Nanman, was the chieftain and leader of the tribes in the Nan Zhong region south of the Kingdom of Shu in the Three Kingdoms period of China. He was involved in several small skirmishes with Shu earlier, but when Wu and Wei were concentrating on fighting one another, Shu's Zhuge Liang launched a full invasion on the tribes. After being captured by Zhuge for seven times, he surrendered to him and swore his allegiance to Shu.
2. The Officers of Wei|
There were a few advisors in Wei, but mostly were Generals. Below is a few advisors, and generals.
**Guo Jia** (170 – 207) was a strategist and advisor to the powerful warlord Cao Cao during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms Period in ancient China. During his eleven years of service, Guo Jia's brilliance greatly aided Cao Cao in his victories over rival warlords Lu Bu and Yuan Shao, as well as chief of the Wuhuan tribe Ta Dun. As a result of this, he was one of the most trusted and favored subjects of Cao Cao.
**Jia Xu** (147 - 224 AD), styled Wenhe, was an advisor to the Wei Kingdom. Jia Xu was born in Gozang in Wu Wei. No one recognized his talents in his youth except a man named Yan Zhong. Yan Zhong stated Jia Xu had the genius of Zhang Liang and Chen Ping.
Jia Xu served Dong Zhuo when he [Dong Zhuo] entered the capital. Following the chaos after Dong Zhuo's death, Jia Xu advised Li Jue, Guo Si, and Zhang Ji to gather troops to take Chang'An and avenge the death of Lord Dong Zhuo, after which Li Jue came to lead the new army. Later Guo Si and Li Jue started fighting over who was in control, and Jia Xu left them. Jia Xu then made connections with Zhang Xiu and joined him. In part to Jia Xu's advice, Zhang Xiu was able to turn back several of Cao Cao's attacks. Ultimately Jia Xu advised Zhang Xiu to surrender to Cao Cao and the surrender was well-received. Jia Xu then became an advisor to Cao Cao and later Cao Pi.
**Sima Shi** (d. 255), courtesy name Ziyuan, was an official of Cao Wei during the Three Kingdoms period, who ultimately became the actual wielder of imperial power. In 249, he assisted his father Sima Yi in overthrowing the emperor Cao Fang's regent Cao Shuang, allowing the Sima clan to become paramount authority in the empire, and he inherited his father's authority after his father's death in 251. He maintained a tight grip on the political scene and, when the emperor Cao Fang considered action against him in 254, he had Cao Fang deposed and replaced with his cousin Cao Mao. This tight grip eventually allowed him to, at the time of his death in 255, transition his power to his younger brother Sima Zhao, whose son Sima Yan eventually usurped the throne and established the Jin Dynasty.
After Sima Yan became emperor, he, recognizing Sima Shi's role in his own imperial status, posthumously honored his uncle as the Emperor Jing of Jin, with the temple name Shizong (??).
**Sima Yi** (179 - 251) was a general, military strategist, and politician of Cao Wei during the Three Kingdoms period. He is perhaps best known for defending Cao Wei from Zhuge Liang's northern campaigns. His success and subsequent rise in prominence paved the way for his grandson Sima Yan's foundation of the Jin Dynasty, which would eventually bring an end to the Three Kingdoms period. After the founding of the Jin Dynasty, Sima Yi was posthumously honored as Emperor Xuan of Jin with the temple name of Gaozu.
**Sima Zhao** (211-264), courtesy name Zishang, was the son of chief military strategist Prime Minister Sima Yi of Cao Wei, during the Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history.
He maintained control of Cao Wei, seized by his father Sima Yi and maintained by his elder brother Sima Shi, and had himself created the Lord of Jin -- the penultimate step before usurpation of the throne, although he would never actually take the throne. He took advantage of weakness in the Shu Han (manifested predominantly in the form of the incompetent Liu Shan) to the west and attacked it, forcing the surrender of Shu. His military credit helped to set up the plot of overthrowing Cao Wei by his son, Sima Yan, who usurped the Cao Wei throne proclaimed the Jin Dynasty. After the establishment of Jin, Sima Yan posthumously honored him as Emperor Wen of Jin, with the temple name Taizu.
**Xu You** a staff officer under that of Yuan Shao. Due to being a very close friend to Cao Cao, he put his emotions over his duty, and told Cao Cao about their supply bases at Wu Chao, during the Battle of Guandu. At that time, Cao Cao's army was on to verge of defeat, so that information led to scoring a large victory.
**Xu Shu**, also known as Shan Fu (Simp: Trad), was one of Liu Bei's advisors during the Three Kingdoms period of China. Cao Cao had long admired the man, and wishing to lure Xu Shu into his service he captured his mother and took her to the capital. Xu Shu was known to be a man of strong filial piety and left to find her though he promised never to serve Cao Cao.
When he went to his mother, she was outraged and hung herself. Xu Shu kept his promise and did not advise Cao Cao. However, before the Battle of Red Cliffs, he was in Cao Cao's camp when Pang Tong advised Cao Cao to tie the ships together with chains to prevent sea sickness among his soldiers. Xu Shu saw at once that this was to assist Zhou Yu's fire attack against Cao Cao's fleet. Xu Shu asked Pang Tong how to escape, and the latter told him to spread the rumour that Ma Teng and Han Sui were leading a rebellion against Cao Cao. Cao Cao commanded Xu Shu to subdue the reblellion. Xu Shu managed to escape from the battle.
Prior to leaving Liu Bei, Xu Shu recommended that he seek out Zhuge Liang, who was to become the Liu Bei's most famous advisor.
**Xun You** was an advisor to Cao Cao during the Three Kingdoms Period period. He later opposed Cao Cao taking the title King of Wei. His uncle, Xun Yu, was much better known. In the Wade-Giles version of Romance of the Three Kingdoms, he and his uncle have the same name, Hsun Yu.
Xun Yu (styled) was one of Cao Cao's greatest advisors during the Three Kingdoms period in ancient China.
Xun Yu was a man from Yinghang in Yingchuan. Xun Yu was once under the service of Yuan Shao. However, seeing that Yuan Shao was not a man who could accomplish great things, he left for Cao Cao with his newphew Xun You. During the reign of Emperor Huan of Han, he was famous throughout the empire of Han. He was also praised as an extraordinary man. Cao Cao once praised him as "my zifang". Zi fang, courtesy name of Zhang Liang, was the man who aided Liu Bang in the founding of the Han.
Xun Yu was responsible for much invaluable advice given to Cao Cao. He advised Cao Cao to make the emperor into a puppet of his so that Cao Cao could have a political advantage over the other warlords. He also advised Cao Cao during the Battle of Guandu, which eventually lead to the defeat of the warlord Yuan Shao. For example, when Cao Cao realised that his food supplies were exhausted, Xun Yu advised him "to employ unexpected tactics because great changes are about to take place". This advice caused Cao Cao to execute a sneak attack on a garrison of Yuan Shao. This eventually led to the beheading of Yuan Shao's general, Chunyu Qiong, and the surrendering of Xu You to Cao Cao. All these had happened just as Xun Yu had predicted.
Xun Yu met an untimely end when he became ill in the established Kingdom of Wei. In the 17th year of Jian'an (212)Cao Cao wanted to be the Duke of Wei, which Xun Yu strongly opposed. This incident irritated Cao Cao. Cao Cao thought that Xun Yu was not helping him anymore. One day, when Cao Cao went off for a campaign against Sun Quan, Xun Yu feigned illness and stayed home, whereupon Cao Cao sent him a 'gift'. When Xun Yu opened the box, he found it to be empty. The great advisor took the hint, drank poison and died. Xun Yu was only 51 when he died. Cao Cao then became the Duke of Wei in the subsequent year. (NOTE: Xun Yu's nephew, Xun You, died in the same manner as he did)
He was succeeded by his son Xun Han, who died of the age of 30.
Now for some Generals!|
**Dian Wei** (197) was a warrior during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms period in ancient China. He served as a bodyguard to the powerful warlord Cao Cao. Famed for his enormous strength, Dian Wei excelled in wielding dual halberds, each of which was said to weigh 40 jin. He died defending Cao Cao's escape against multiple enemies in Wan.
**Xiahou Dun** (220) was a military general under the powerful warlord Cao Cao during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms Period in ancient China. Cao Cao's original family name was Xiahou, but his father, Song, was adopted by the Cao family, so Dun and Cao share family relations. One of the most trusted men of Cao Cao's, Xiahou Dun aided the warlord in his campaigns against Lu Bu, Liu Bei and Sun Quan.
Xiahou Dun lost his left eye during a battle in 198, and subsequently became known among the rank and file as "Blind Xiahou", which greatly irked him. His image as a one-eyed warrior was later popularized by the historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, in which he was said to have yanked out the arrow that struck him in the eye fired by Cao Xing and devoured his own eyeball to install fear in his enemies.
The Chronicles of the Three Kingdoms describes Xiahou Dun as a modest and generous man. He personally fetched his teacher to the camp so that he could continue his studies in the field. He also distributed any excess wealth he had, taking from the treasury only in need, and did not own any property. At his death, he was given the posthumous title of Marquis Zhong, literally meaning the loyal marquis.
**Xiahou Yuan** (219) was a military general under the powerful warlord Cao Cao during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms Period in ancient China. Known for his decisiveness and cautiousness, Xiahou Yuan had emerged victorious in many campaigns and established a name for himself as one of the most prominent generals of the Kingdom of Wei.
Xiahou Yuan was killed in the Battle of Mount Dingjun against Liu Bei's general Huang Zhong in 219. He was given the posthumous title of Marquis Min, literally meaning the sympathetic marquis.
**Xu Chu** was a warrior living in the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms Period in ancient China. He served as a bodyguard to the powerful warlord Cao Cao. Gigantic and strong, yet simple-minded and honest, Xu Chu was referred to as "Tiger Fool" by his fellow men. He continued to serve under Cao Cao's successors, Cao Pi and Cao Rui, until his own death, upon which he was given the posthumous title of Marquis Zhuang, literally meaning the robust marquis.
**Xu Huang** (227) was a prominent general under the powerful warlord Cao Cao and his successor Cao Pi during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms Period in ancient China. He was most noted for breaking the siege on the city of Fancheng (A district of present day Xiangfan, Hubei) in 219.
Chen Shou, author of the Chronicles of the Three Kingdoms, considered Xu Huang among the top five generals under Cao Cao, together with Yu Jin, Zhang He, Yue Jin and Zhang Liao.
**Zhang He** (167-8 – 231) was a distinguished military general under the powerful warlord Cao Cao during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms era in ancient China. He began his military career when the Yellow Turban Rebellion erupted in 184 and subsequently served under Han Fu and Yuan Shao before defecting to Cao Cao during the Battle of Guandu. He participated in many major campaigns, including those against Yuan Tan, Ma Chao, Zhang Lu and Liu Bei. After Cao Cao's death in 220, Zhang He was primarily engaged with defending the Kingdom of Wei against the Northern Expeditions led by Chancellor Zhuge Liang of the Kingdom of Shu. He died from an arrow wound received during an encounter with Zhuge Liang's forces in 231.
Famed for his resourcefulness that even Zhuge Liang was said to be wary about, Zhang He was considered by Chen Shou, author of the Chronicles of the Three Kingdoms, to be one of the top five generals of the Kingdom of Wei, among Yu Jin, Yue Jin, Zhang Liao and Xu Huang. He was also said to be full of respect for Confucian scholars, and supported the measure to adopt masters of the Five Classics in Cao Pi's court.
**Zhang Liao** (169 – 222) was a military general under the powerful warlord Cao Cao during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms Period in ancient China. He had participated in many campaigns, including those against Yuan Shao's heirs and the Wuhuan tribes. But he was most noted for his pivotal role in the Battle of Hefei in 208, where he successfully defended the city of Hefei against advances of Sun Quan. Zhang Liao is widely known to be the greatest general of the Wei kingdom.
Zhang Liao became close friends with Guan Yu during the short time that Guan Yu was serving Cao Cao. Guan Yu recognized Zhang Liao as his equal in arms.
Chen Shou, author of the Chronicles of the Three Kingdoms, considered Zhang Liao the head of the top five generals of the Kingdom of Wei, along with Yu Jin, Zhang He, Yue Jin and Xu Huang.
3. The Officers of Wu|
**Gu Yong** was born in Wu county of Wu prefecture. He learned the classics and calligraphy from Cai Yong when the latter came to Wu briefly as a refugee. His family is one of the four illustrious houses of Wu (Zhu, Lu, Gu, Zhang). He was a minister of Wu and became a governor of several prefectures throughout Yangzhou. He was successful in pacify and integrate rebels and minorities under his jurisdiction.
When Sun Quan became the Prince of Wu, he bestowed the nobility title (Yang Xui Xiang Hou) on Gu Yong. After Sun Quan declared himself the emperor, Gu Yong was appointed to the high rank of Prime Minister.
Gu Yong was said to be a shy person and a teetotaler. However, whenever he does speak, he speaks with confidence and reason. This was a major reason why the Emperor often test his ideas on Gu Yong to see what Gu Yong thinks of the ideas. Gu Yong was a very modest person who does not repay his enemies with malice but always did everything according to the law.
**Lu Su** was an advisor for the kingdom of Wu during the Three Kingdoms period of ancient China, having taken over the position from Zhou Yu. During the Battle of Chi Bi, Lu Su served as a close advisor to Zhou Yu and a liaison with Liu Bei's forces.
Upon Zhou Yu's death, Lu Su was put in charge of Sun Quan's armies and was head advisor until his own death. He was succeeded by Lu Meng. Lu Su felt that it would be beneficial for Wu to maintain diplomatic relations with the neighboring kingdom of Shu. He greatly respected Zhuge Liang, despite the fact that his predecessor Zhou Yu considered him an immense threat.
**Lu Xun** (Traditional Chinese: Simplified Chinese: pinyin: Lu Xun) (183 – 245), originally named Lu Yi, was a general of the Kingdom of Wu during the Three Kingdoms period in ancient China.
He was born in one of four most prestigious and richest families in the Wu district (Zhu, Lu, Gu, Zhang). In an attempt to rally these powerful families to his side, the ruler of Wu Sun Ce married his daughter to Lu Xun. Lu Xun began his career as a minor official under Sun Ce, ruler of Wu (who was then still a general and provincial warlord). He was soon given a minor post as commandant and civil officer, where he distinguished himself as both a skilled civil leader, and as a military commander. As a military commander, he pacified south eastern tribes of Yue and brough them within the chinese influence. As a civil official, he was successful in integrating northern refugees and minorities into the social and economic structure of Wu.
**Zhou Yu** (175 - 210) was a famous militarist and strategist of Wu of the Three Kingdoms of China. Often know as 'The Pretty Boy'
**Zhuge Jin** (AD 174 - 241), courtesy name Ziyu (Wade-Giles: Tzu-yu) or Gongjin, was a minister of the Kingdom of Wu of China and elder brother of the famous Shu strategist Zhuge Liang. He was greatly trusted by Sun Quan. His most important accomplishment was in smoothing relations between Wu and Shu. His son Zhuge Ke succeeded him, and became a great Wu general, but later failed as a regent, leading to the destruction of the Zhuge clan.
Zhuge Jin also had another son named Zhuge Qiao, who was adopted by his brother Zhuge Liang and his wife, Huang Yue Ying.
**Zhuge Ke** (203-253), courtesy name Yuanxun, was the son of the Eastern Wu minister, Zhuge Jin, whose younger brother was the great Shu statesman Zhuge Liang. He succeeded Lu Xun after Lu's death. After the death of the founding emperor Sun Quan, Zhuge served as regent for his son Sun Liang, but the regency proved to be militarily disastrous due to Zhuge's overagressiveness against Cao Wei. In 253, Zhuge was killed, along with his clan, in a coup.
Now for some Generals!|
**Gan Ning** lived from 175 AD to about 218 AD during the period of Chinese history known as the Three Kingdoms Period, and was an important general under the Kingdom of Wu. He was born in Linjiang in the Ba Prefecture and took the styled name of Xingba. He gained the titles of General Who Oppresses the Enemy with Ferocity and Grand Administrator of Xiling during his military career.
Gan Ning was rough but forthright and head strong. He was open-minded, valorous and skilled in strategy. His lack of respect for material goods was balanced by his respect for talented men. Gan Ning was extravagant and often covered his travelling quarters in silk only to cut the cloth up when he left. He travelled surrounded by carriages and steeds or when by water, galleys or light ships. Ironically, he hated wealth. Throughout his younger years, he paid no heed to chivalry and often committed murder, both in public and in secret.
**Huang Gai** (145-222) was an officer of the Kingdom of Wu in during China's Three Kingdoms period. He was a hardened veteran who had served three Masters of the Sun family from Sun Jian to Sun Quan. His birth place was Quanling County, Lingling Precinct (Presently Yongzhou in Hunan Province).
At the Battle of Red Cliffs, in 208, he suggested to Zhou Yu that fire would be best in defeating Cao Cao's fleet. Zhou Yu approved, and Huang Gai would go to Cao Cao claiming as a defector. Huang Gai filled his boats with wax and straw, and once he got close to Cao Cao's fleet, he set his boats on fire. This, coupled with the fact that Cao Cao had chained his ships together to prevent their soldiers from being seasick, caused the fire to spread throughout the fleet forcing Cao Cao to retreat. This also resulted in a critical victory for both Sun Quan and Liu Bei. During the battle, he was also shot with an arrow and fell off his boat, and another officer Han Dang rescued him. Huang Gai's titles were Auxiliary Corps Commander, Acting Colonel of the Firm Attack, Chief Commandant of Danyang, General of the Gentlemen of the Household, and Governor of Wu Ling.
Huang Gai is a playable character for Wu in the video game series Dynasty Warriors. He wields an iron warclub and fights with a heavy, powerful style, sacrificing speed for great power. One of his moves involves the tossing or setting down of an explosive. Although powerful, it is dangerous in that it can damage allies, including the player, as well as enemies.
**Ling Tong** is best known as a character in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms and was born in 189 AD at Yuhang, Wujun (Zhe Jiang Province). When Ling Tong was only fifteen years old, his father Ling Cao, was killed in battle by Gan Ning’s arrow attack when he was fighting against Huang Zu. Bravely following his late father’s footsteps, Ling Tong served Sun Quan and took up the post as Auxiliary Corps Commanding Officer, and then the post of Deputy Commander, in order to manage his father’s troops.
Later, during Sun Quan’s third attack on Huang Zu, Ling Tong took the vanguard of the army and scored a complete victory. He was then promoted to the Commander Who Upholds Justice.
During the famous Battle of Chi Bi, Ling Tong held the rank of Commandant. When the kingdoms of Wu and Wei engaged at Hefei, Ling Tong was appointed Premier of Pei Country, Commander of the Right and Imperial Corps Commander Who Destroys the Rebels.
Ling Tong despised Gan Ning for killing his father and wanted nothing more than vengeance, but after Gan Ning Joined Wu he couldn't kill him, although he did attack Gan Ning and fought with him repeatedly. Ling Tong was approached by Lu Meng and Sun Quan who told him they understood how he felt but had to stop the quarrel with Gan Ning, Ling Tong tried and finally became friends with Gan Ning after he saved Ling Tong's life. From then on, they stayed good friends and competed to become better warriors than each other.
Ling Tong was an honest, righteous man who despised wealth and fame. He treated his men well and earned the respect of his fellow officers. He died of natural causes in 237 AD.
**Lu Meng** ( 174 cm height/ 5'8 )(178 - 219) was a great general of Wu during the Three Kingdoms period. Originally he was a warrior. He served as one of the commanding generals in battles like He Fei.
It is said that he focused entirely on martial skills until was admonished by Sun Quan, after which he took up scholarly pursuits also, and became a capable strategist. He took some lessons from the well-known Lu Su. Lu Su always was impressed by Lu Meng. He was from Fupo in Runan. Later, he was the teacher of Lu Xun and told him, "One day you will be my successor." He captured Guan Yu and Guan Ping to take back Jing from Shu. Afterwards, the two captured men were ordered executed by Sun Quan.
He used the strategy of feigning illness and placing an unknown general at the time Lu Yi (Lu Xun) in command, tricking Guan Yu into leaving the province unguarded against Eastern Wu as Guan Yu was attacking Cao Cao in the north. Then, Lu Meng attacked and captured the province, treating the civilians with care to turn them against Guan Yu. After Guan Yu was executed, Lu Meng fell to illness, and despite efforts from Sun Quan, died.
In the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, however, he is possessed by the angered spirit of Guan Yu and is killed. Some also claim Lu Meng was poisoned by some of Guan Yu's followers.
**Taishi Ci** (Height 170cm/5'7"), (Wade-Giles: T'aishih Tz'u) (166 - 206 AD), common name Ziyi, was a Chinese military officer who served during the time of the Three Kingdoms era (Cao Wei, Sun Wu and Shu Han between 220 - 280 AD). He was born in Huangxian in the Donglai Prefecture (presently the Shandong Province) where he studied hard, looked after his mother and was known throughout the province for his fealty. Taishi Ci came to the attention of Kong Rong, a descendant of Confucious, and the governor of Beihei Commandary (presently Weifang Prefecture). Rong admired Ci's fidelity, and so regularly provided food and financial assistance to his mother.
**Xu Sheng** (?-?) was a brave Wu general who participated in several battles for Wu. He is often noted several times throughout his career for overcoming enemies who outnumbered him greatly, and with decisive victories.
Soon after Cao Pi declared himself Emperor of Wei, he mobilized a large force to attack Wu. As the commander in chief of the Wu forces, Xu Sheng constructed a fake wall along the banks of the river (that served as a border) which stretched over 100 li. Cao Pi, upon seeing the wall, immediately withdrew his forces. Thus, Xu Sheng repelled the entire Wei invasion without a single casualty. Xu Sheng died a while after.
**Zhou Tai** (188 cm height/6'2), courtesy name Youping, was a tall, powerful man who served the kingdom of Wu in the Three Kingdoms era of China.
He originally served as a bodyguard of Sun Ce with his former comrade in piracy Jiang Qin, but was eventually promoted to lead troops. Numerous times throughout his career, he saved Sun Quan from danger by risking his own life. He was scarred for life by saving the then-young Sun Quan from an attack of Shanyue rebels while Sun Ce was away on campaign, suffering twelve deep wounds from the battle. Later in life, he rescued Sun Quan yet again, this time from Zhang Liao's ambush at He Fei. After this amazing feat, having charged enemy lines to accomplish the rescue, Sun Quan would for the rest of his living days request Zhou Tai present at his side during all major battles. The two shared a bond of friendship, and it was said that Sun Quan held none of his generals in higher regard. When Sun Quan promoted Zhou Tai to Controller of Ruxu, the other generals would not accept Zhou Tai's command at first, citing his common background. Thus Sun Quan made a special trip to Ruxu, where during a party, he personally brought Zhou Tai wine and asked for him to remove his outer garments. Pointing at each scar, Sun Quan asked Zhou Tai the story behind it, whereupon Zhou Tai would respond with his memories of past battles. The other officers gained much respect for Zhou Tai and accepted his command.
**Zhu Ran** (182 - 248) was a general in the service of the Sun family, and later of the Kingdom of Wu during the Three Kingdoms period in China. He was praised for his skills as a general, and took part in many important military campaigns for the Kingdom of Wu, including the capture of Guan Yu, the Battle of Yiling, and the defense of Jiangling. Before his death, he would be given full command of the armies of Wu.
4. The Officers of Shu|
**Fei Yi** (after 200; 253), courtesy name Wenwei, was an official of Shu Han during the Three Kingdoms period who served as regent after Jiang Wan.
**Jiang Wei** (Wade-Giles: Chiang Wei, 202-264), courtesy name Boyue, was a general and later (arguable) regent of Shu Han during the reign of its second emperor Liu Shan. He was originally a Cao Wei middle level army officer, but joined the Shu Han regent Zhuge Liang on Zhuge's first northern expedition against Cao Wei in 228. Zhuge became impressed with him and immediately made him an army commander. He eventually rose through the ranks during the regencies of Zhuge and of Zhuge's successors Jiang Wan and Fei Yi to eventually become Fei's chief assistant. After Fei's death in 253, he succeeded to Fei's position, but did not have the power that Fei had, as he apparently became in charge largely only of military matters -- and therefore was only arguably a regent.
Páng Tong (??) (178-213AD), courtesy name Shìyuán (??), was an advisor to Liu Bei during the Later Han period. His Taoist name was Young Phoenix (??; Fèngchú). The epic historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms portrays Pang Tong as a genius military tactician, and describes Pang and strategist Zhuge Liang in equal terms. Indeed, Sima Hui first recommends Pang Tong and Zhuge Liang to the hero Liu Bei with the following introduction:
"Sleeping Dragon and Young Phoenix: with either one you can settle all under heaven."|
**Zhuge Liang** (181 - 234) was one of the greatest strategists of post-Han China, as well as a statesman, engineer, scholar, and legendary inventor of baozi . Zhuge is an uncommon two-character compound family name.
Now for some Generals!|
**Guan Yu** (162–219) was a military general under the warlord Liu Bei during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms period in ancient China. He played a significant role in the civil war that led to the collapse of the Han Dynasty and the establishment of the Kingdom of Shu, of which Liu Bei was the first emperor.
One of the best known Chinese historical figures throughout East Asia, Guan Yu's true life stories have largely given way to semi-fictional ones, mostly found in the historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms or passed down the generations as folklore, in which his deeds and moral qualities have been much exaggerated.
**Zhang Fei** (168 - 221 AD), styled Yide, was a general of the Kingdom of Shu in the Three Kingdoms period of China.
Zhang Fei was shown to have been a masterful general rather than simply a warrior. He treated his superiors with respect, but had little respect for his underlings. This is in contrast with Guan Yu, who treated his subordinates well but often disrespected his peers.
Zhang Fei is best portrayed through his description and actions depicted in his Sanguo Zhi biography by Chen Shou. Some sources suggest that Zhang Fei was also an excellent painter.
Zhang Fei was killed by his own men Zhang Da and Fan Qiang, while preparing his troops to attack the rival Kingdom of Wu, to avenge the death of Guan Yu. Zhang Da and Fan Qiang then surrendered to Wu.
**Huang Zhong** (145 – 222) was a leading military general of the Kingdom of Shu during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms period in ancient China. He was most noted for his victory in the Battle of Mount Dingjun, in which his force routed that of Xiahou Yuan, who was slain in the battle. For his merits, Huang Zhong was ranked among the five leading generals of Shu, later popularized as the Five Tiger Generals.
Huang Zhong had always been portrayed in popular literature and arts as an elderly general with youthful vigor and constitution. Even now, the spirit to strive for excellence despite old age is often attributed to him. However, little was documented about him in historical records and it is impossible to tell how old he was when he was named one of the Five Tiger Generals.
**Ma Chao** (176-222), courtesy name Mengqi, was the eldest son of Ma Teng and a general of the Three Kingdoms Period. In Luo Guan Zhong's novel The Romance of the Three Kingdoms he received the nickname "Ma Chao the Splendid" due to his immense skills as a warrior. Ma Chao was one of the Five Tiger Generals of Shu according to The Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
**Wei Yan** (234 AD), courtesy name Wenchang, was a distinguished officer of Shu.
The novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms suggested that Wei Yan originally served as a mid-ranked military officer of Liu Biao, but the history books didn't officially recognize that.
He joined Liu Bei's army after Liu captured Changsha in about 209. His talent helped him to be a major general of Liu's Army in very few years. Liu offered him the place of chief executive at Hanzhong in 219, made him be the sixth most important military man of the kingdom after the Five Tiger Generals.
After Liu's death in 223, Zhuge Liang employed him for the war with Wei. He had suggested some radical plans in order to win the war but Zhuge Liang rejected them.
**Zhao Yun** (styled Zilong)(168-229) was an important commander of the civil wars of the late Han Dynasty and the Three Kingdoms period of China. For most of his career, Zhao Yun served the warlord Liu Bei, playing a part in the establishment of Shu Han. In literature and folklore he is heralded as the third member of the Five Tiger Generals.
About 168, Zhao Yun was born in the Zhending county of Changshan province (now in Hebei, northern China). He was approximately 6’2” tall, good-looking, and had a commanding presence. He joined Gongsun Zan, a warlord who was a major player in the region, probably at the end of 191 A.D. or the beginning of 192 A.D. as commander of a small group of county volunteers. In 192 he was placed under the authority of Liu Bei, who at the time had only the rank of a major under Gongsun, as a commander of Liu’s cavalry. Liu Bei had a contingent of several thousand Wuhuan cavalry and Zhao Yun probably was put in charge of this force. Zhao Yun left Gongsun Zan and Liu Bei to attend his elder brother’s funeral soon after. He rejoined Liu Bei in 200 A.D. Evidently Zhao Yun had an extremely close relationship with Liu Bei. The Sanguo Zhi says that they slept in the same bed during the time the two were together in the City of Ye. Around the same time, Liu Bei sent Zhao Yun to secretly recruit more men to reinforce Liu’s then battered army. From then on, Zhao Yun followed Liu Bei throughout his sojourns around north China.

Zhao Yun. The Kingdom of Shu.
The first level of the game for Zhao Yun is The Battle of Ji Province, and the enemy leader for this level is Zhang Jiao. Here is a list of the enemy officers, and your allies.
Yuan Shao VS Zhang Jiao
Commander: Yuan Shao Commander: Zhang Jiao
Officer: Zhao Yun Officer: Zhang Bao
Officer: Yan Liang---Tian Feng Officer: Zhang Liang
Officer: Wen Chou---Guo Tu Officer: Pei Yuan Shao
Officer: Ju Shou Officer: He Yi
Officer: Yuan Xi Officer: Bo Zhang
Officer: Yuan Shang Officer: Cheng Yuanzhi
Your best bet for this level is to just fight your way through. Get rid of all the enemy officers and the rest of the troops, before you challenge the enemy commander. Get used to the game, and to the controls. Then whenever you feel your ready and you've worked your way through, kill Zhang Jiao to go onto the next level, but be careful as he can use magic!
The next level of the game for Zhao Yun is The Battle at Hu Lao Gate, and the enemy leader for this level is Dong Zhuo.
Yuan Shao VS Dong Zhuo
Commander: Yuan Shao---Yan Liang, Wen Chou Commander: Dong Zhuo---Dong Min, Jia Xu,
Officer: Cao Cao---Dian Wei, Cao Hong
Officer: Zhang Liao
Officer: Liu Bei---Guan Yu, Jian Yong
Officer: Li Jue---Wang Fang, Li Meng
Officer: Gongsun Zan---Zhao Yun
Officer: Guo Si--- Hu Zhen, Zhao Cen
Officer: Xu Rong
Officer: Niu Fu
Officer: Li Ru
Officer: Gao Shun
Your best bet on this level would be the same as the first level of the game. Get used to the game and the player, and fight your way through. The reason for this is because you will get ambushed by the games most toughest character ever, Lu Bu. He will have plenty of troops with him, and has a very strong attack, so be extra carefull. You should bring as many people as you can with you to fight him off, but if your not really a good player on this game, then as soon as Yuan Shao says 'Leave Lu Bu, go around him' Then do it! you don't want to get killed. Most of the army should fight him, but a lot of people will go after Dong Zhuo. Go with them and move on to the next level!
Xiahou Dun. The Kingdom of Wei.
Right so we have just done the first two levels for Zhao Yun (I am only showing you two levels for each character, so you have to do the rest for yourself) so now it is on to Xiahou Dun. This level is The Battle Of Xia Pi, and the enemy commander for this level is Lu Bu, so be very careful, as I said before he is the toughest guy in the game!
Cao Cao VS Lu Bu
Commander: Cao Cao---Guo Jin, Yu Jin Commander: Lu Bu---Diao Chan, Chen Gong
Officer: Xiahou Dun Officer: Zhang Liao---Cao Xing
Officer: Xiahou Yuan Officer: Gao Shun
Officer: Cao Hong Officer: Hou Cheng
Officer: Liu Bei---Zhang Fei, Jian Yong Officer: Song Xian
Officer: Wei Xu---Yin Li
The plot thickens because Liu Bei has betrayed Lu Bu, and seeked out help from Cao Cao to destroy him and reclaim the lands again. But right now your wondering 'Why is it always me who is outnumbered? I know how you feel. So the best way to win this battle is to fight your way through as usual. Because Lu Bu is strong, so you WILL need your allies with you for this one. But then again I ran straight past everyone to kill Lu Bu and done it! Sometimes you can kill him, but most of the time he will flee, but he shall be betrayed by his army on the way out, and killed. Zhang Liao then joins you. On to the next level!
So by this stage you should be very used to the game, so if you want to you can just kill as many as you want! This level is called The Battle Of Guan Du, and the enemy commander for this level is Yuan Shao! I told you the plot thickens, because Cao Cao and Yuan Shao are best friends! Shocking isn't it!
Cao Cao VS Yuan Shao
Commander: Cao Cao---Guo Jia Commander: Yuan Shao---Tian Feng, Guo Tu, Ju Shou
Officer: Xiahou Dun Officer: Zhang He---Gao Lan
Officer: Cao Pi---Yu Jin, Yue Jin Officer: Zhen Ji
Officer: Guan Yu Officer: Liu Bei---Jian Yong
Officer: Liu Yan---Jia Xu Officer: Yan Liang---Han Meng
Officer: Li Dian Officer: Wen Chou---Lu Wei Kuang
Officer: Cao Hong Officer: Yuan Tan---Gao Gan, Xun Chen
Officer: Zhu Ling Officer: Lu Kuang
Officer: Yuan Shang---Lu Xiang
Officer: Chunyu Qiong
So as Liu Bei and Guan Yu discover that they are against each other on this one they both leg it, but not until Guan Yu kills Wen Chou, and Yuan Shang! So that really boosts your Morale. Also another cool fact is that Zhen Ji and Yuan Xi are Married! After the battle Zhen Ji will join Wei and marries Cao Pi! Anyway on to the battle analysis, the best thing to do is fight through. Get rid of some enemy officers and this battle is in the bag!
Zhou Yu. The Kingdom of Wu.
The last of chapters is with Wu, the kingdom run by Sun Jian. This first level is called The Battle at Si Shui Gate, and the enemy commander for this battle is Hua Xiong.
Yuan Shao VS Hua Xiong
Commander: Yuan Shao---Ju Shou Commander: Hua Xiong---Niu Fu, Zhao Cen, Wang
Officer: Sun Jian---Zhou Yu, Huang Gai Officer: Li Jue---Li Su
Officer: Liu Bei---Guan Yu Officer: Guo Si---Xu Rong, Li Meng
Officer: Yuan Shu Officer: Hu Zhen
Officer: Gongsun Zan Officer: Fan Chou
Officer: Jia Xu
Officer: Dong Min
Okay this battle should be easy enough for you as you just do the same as before. The only hard thing is that whenever Lu Bu appears! Just make sure you have your allies!
Things are really twisted now and this level is called The Battle of Jing Province, and the enemy leader for this one is Liu Bao.
Sun Jian VS Liu Bao
Commander: Sun Jian Commander: Liu Bao
Officer: Sun Ce Officer: Lu Gong
Officer: Sun Shang Xiang Officer: Kuai Liang
Officer: Zhou Yu Officer: Huang Zu
Officer: Huang Gai Officer: Cai Mao
Officer: Cheng Pu Officer: Zhang Hu
Officer: Han Dang
This battle is as easy as it gets! Just fight your way through until you reach Liu Bao's Den, and surround him from all sides. Then the rest of the game, is up to you!
Cheats, hints and codes for those who need or want them!|
Okay people so we are nearly finished this walkthrough, and I really hope that it has helped you so far! So here is a few Cheats, hints and codes!
Cheats: Unlock all Wu Generals;
At the title screen hold L1+L2+R1+R2 and press Up, Down, Down, Right, Left, Left, Right, Up, Down.
Unlimited Musou Rage;
Whilst playing press Right, Right, Down, Left, Square, X, Triangle, Circle, Circle, Right, Left, Down, Up, Up, Up, Triangle, Triangle, Right, Right.
Hints: Most efficient power-up levels;
Guan Yu's escape, on Guan Yu's team. Normal setting.
If you do this, then you receive level 4 of every item you receive from a general (defense or attack), except for life +10, which you receive from Xiahou Dun. There is also a musou +10 before the third gate in one of the pots on the right hand side of it, and in the many boxes are many weapons and items of varying greatness as you keep doing the level. (If you combo the generals for 23 hits or more when they're dead. Then the items will be level 8 rather than level 4.)
Also, by virtue of it being Guan Yu's escape, the level is fairly swift and so you power up much quicker.
You can do the level on hard and receive level 8 items from the generals even if you do not combo them, I believe the musou and life is also +20 and the weapons are, obviously, better calibre. However, it does take longer and is harder, so I wouldn't recommend it for anybody with characters who are not powered up.
The conditions for the battle are that we lose if Guan Yu or the carriage is destroyed, and we win if Guan Yu reaches the escape point. He does not get through the final gate, however, until Xiahou Dun is defeated, and so he doesn't complete the level overly swiftly before you've had the time to get all that you want. However, he will remain where there are any people in his path, so it's wise to kill all people on the level, doubly so because you get more points for the controlled character also. And the carriage does progress as soon as each gate opens...irritatingly.
Orbs ( easier ways to get them)
Orbs they are hard to get.
To get them the difficulty must be on Hard mode.
I say be on a horse to get the time limit orb challenges.
Ice- At the Battle Of Guan Du. Yuan Shao's forces. Be your stongest and fastest character be on a horse and go straight to Cao Pi.
Fire- Battle of Si Shui Gate. Allies forces. Kill 200 enemies in 2 mins ( Be on a horse goto an area where enemies are mostly at and destroy them all!!!)
Light- Wu Zhange Plains. Shu forces. Kill Zhen ji , Cao Ren, and Xu Zhu. ( Yet again be on a horse)
Shadow- Wu Zhang Plains. Wei forces. ( I havent gotten this one yet it's very hard) Be on a horse and be prepared.
