Wei had more people and cities because it occupiedthe traditional cradle of Chinese territory, the central and northern plains. Wei was also the area most ravaged by the rebellions, warfare and tumult and was quite impoverished. Wu and Shu-Han were certainly at a disadvantage in numbers and raw resources, but their people and their lands were far less war-torn.

Wu's expedition to Yazhou and the other island whose name I do not recall, was a failure, which Lu Xun said it would be before they left, but Sun Quan executed the expedition leaders all the same.

I thought that Wu commanded expeditions to invade Yizhou and Tanzhou. Maybe I'm wrong though...

Hey James, the scanning/enhancing/colouring work you did on those E&C maps is excellent. The E&C maps are among my favourite maps of the Three Kingdoms period, and I was just going to mention how small and black and white they are when I saw them in this thread. Good work!

Thanks! They are among my favorites as well, and I felt they deserved the attention. :)

Wei does not have half of Korea as it is today. But it does look like they have a big chunk of Korea as it was years ago

Wie's control over parts of Korea is due in part by Gongsun Kang efforts. When the Jin took over, they could not control Gugoryeo push back into those lands.

Help translating old Chines Province Names to Han Pinyin

Unread postby AhFei » Sat Feb 24, 2007 12:12 am

I was surprised to find that while it is easy to find english-language maps, lists and descriptions for provinces from the Yuan Dynasty onwards - the Yuan provinces are, with some additions, still in use today - it's much harder to find good maps of provinces from the Three Kingdoms era.

I found the best map I could online, but I want the pinyin names of provinces! Can any of the reverend scholars help?

http://map.huhai.net/25.jpg

For Example:

The two coastal provinces in the top right, around the lower tip of the land hugging the Gulf of P'o Hai (Bohai in modern times), are called Ching and Hsü, respectively. The conversion to Han Pinyin are as follows:

Ching = Qing
Hsü = Xu.

I thing this would be a great reference, not only for myself, but for everyone here! Please lend your support if familiar with pinyin.

Thanks in advance,
