Back to not being busy. Liu Qiao: Baike gives his life from 249-311. Actually has a Wiki bio now, so I'll use that.

Liu Qiao, zi Zhongyan, from Anzhong in Nanyang. He was an important general in Jin. His grandfather was a member of the Han imperial clan, so he would be named Anzhong Marquis.

Whole Life

Liu Qiao would be named Mishu Lang, and the Jianwei Jiangjun Wang Rong would appreciate him and name him as a Canjun. In 279, Sima Yan would start the campaign to pacify Wu, and Wang Rong would order Liu Qiao and Luo Shang to go across the Changjiang to attack the strategic town of Wuchang, where they'd make a breakthrough after many months, and Sun Hao would surrender, and Liu Qiao would be named Xingyang Xianling, and later Taizi Xima. In 291, Liu Qiao because of his efforts to wipe out Yang Jun would be named Guanzhong Marquis, and be named Shangsh Youcheng. In 300, Liu Qiao would unite with others to assassinate Jia Mi and the Jia clan, and he'd be named Anzhong Barson, as well as Sanji Changshi.

Liu Qiao would then be named Yushi Zhongsheng, and when he was in office the Qing of Qi Sima Jion would have a trusted aie he'd dote on named Zhong Ai, but Liu Qiao would hae no fear of him, and on the contrary would send a memorial with six counts of impeachment against Zhong Ai, and in the end Zhong Ai would slander him with false evidence and he'd lose his nobility, and have his ran lowered to Tunji Xiaowei. In 303, Yi Yang and the barbarian Zhang Chang would launch a rebellion, attacking the nearby town, so Liu Qiao would be named Weiyuan Jiangjun, Yuzhou provisional governor and along with the Jingzhou provisional governor Liu Hong would pacify the rebellion, and afterward he'd be named Zuo Jiangjun.

In 304, the King of Hejian Sima Yong's Bujiang Zhang Fang would take Sima Zhong to Changan. In 305, the Jiangling Wang Jun and the king of Fanyag Sima Xiao would choose the king of Donghai Sima Yue as Mengzhu, and they would raise troops to take Sima ZHong back to Luoyang. Liu Qiao would initally respond, but later Sima Yue would name him as Anbei Jiangjun, and change him to Jizhou provisional governor, and his initial office of Yuzhou provisional governor would be given to Sima Xiao, so Liu Qiao because this appointee wasn't a trusted aide of Sima Zhong, and he would not respect, and would raise soldiers in rebellion, and attack Sima Xiao's stronghold in Xuchang. Sima Xiao was no match for Liu Qiao's men, and had to flee north to find assistance. Liu Qiao would also present a memorial to the court, so Sima Yong as a result sent the Zhennan Dajiangjun Liu Hong, the Pingnan Jiangjun and King of Pengcheng SIma Shi along with Liu Qiao to attack Xuchang, and order Zhang Fang and Lu Lang to lead troops to support Liu Qiao; Liu Qiao would be named Zhendong Jiangjun, with a Jiachi. At that time Liu Qiao would send the Zhangzi Liu You to defend Xiaoxian's Lingbi, to stop the attack from the qest of the Dajun Sima Yue.

Sima Xiao not long after would dispatch soldiers for assitance, and would kill the men Sima Yong sent to help Liu Qiao, Wang Chan and Shi Chao, and would attack Liu Qiao and kill Liu You. Liu You's soldiers would be defeated and die, and Liu Qiao's forces would also be routed, and Liu Qiao was only able to escape with 500 people to Pingzhi, and Sima Yue's army was also able to move west. Sima Yue would would make a breakthrough at Changan, and welcome Sima Zhong back to Luoyang with a full pardon, and Sima Yue would present a memorial naming Liu Qiao as Dafu Junzi Jijiu. In 311, Sima Yue at Xiangxian would die of illness, and Liu Qiao would be named Zhendong Jiangjun, Dadudu of all Yuzhou military affaris, Yuzhou provisional governor. Liu Qiao later would pass away at 63 years old, and he'd obtain the posthumous rank of Sima.

I've got to get back in a better track about doing these. Nothing on Liu Lang, but next guy, Shi Wei.

Shi Wei, born about 207, died about 290. Zi Gongcao, he was a major minister in Wu, from Nanjun in Jingzhou. In his youth he was studious, he would have high moral principle and never slack. He'd be upright and outstanding, and self-reliant, and had an unseizable will. He'd be recommended as Maocai, but because he was able and upright, would not accept. When Sun Xiu ascended, he'd especially draft Shi Wei, and he'd be named to many positions including Guang Luxun. After Sun Hao ascended, the court would be in chaos, and Shi Wei as a result because of his age and illness would request to resign, and so he'd be named as Jianzhi Grand Glorious Master. When Wu was pacified, the Jianwei Jiangjun Wang Rong would personally visit Shi Wei. In 281, Emperor Sima Yan would hand down an edict saying "The Wu Grand Glorious Master Shi Wei, his will is upright and pure, he has lived in a chaotic era, his honesty and chastity can be seen as a paragon. Currently he is old and aged, and has withstood repeated long journeys, and so Shi Wei would be named as a local position as Yilang, and be granted 2000 shi of food, in order to spend his last years." Shi Wei as a result would feign his vigor was abnormal, and that he'd gone blind, and would not accept Sima Yan's title. In 290 he'd die, at 83 years old.

Liu Zhao, Zhang Fan: Nothing.

Liu Yi: Same as the one I did.

Lu Bo, something.

Lu Bo (birth and death unknown, but he was born during the reigns of Cao Pi/Cao Rui), a Wei and Jin scholar. Zi Jingxuan. He was from Chenliu in Xijin (a modern-day district in Kaifeng, Henan). During the time of the Gaogui Xianggong, Ruan Ji would recommend him to Sima Zhao, and would say that his state state had a Lu Bo who was 32, saying "There are few who had this ability, which will blossom into luxuriousness." "He can concentrate on his books and records, as well as litterature." Druing the Yuankang era of Sima Yan, the king of Liliang Sima Rong would journey to Nancheng, and name him Zhenwei Jiangjjun, as well as Shangshu. Skilled with writing, he'd write works of 2 juan, which would be lost. all that exists is the "Ruanji Ming" (engraving) of 1 pian, see the "Yiwen Leiju", roll 36.

Not in the era, but doing him anyways since he's short. Cai Ke

Cai Ke (alive sometime before 295), zi Zini, from Kaocheng in Chenliu, birthdate and death unknown, but was alive during Sima Zhong's Yuankang time. From his youth he was studious, and he would become Shuji. He was a person who was careful with his friends, with Shan Jian and Wang Yanshu, saying "Today there's a noble man." He'd be named the Chengdu Dajiangjun Wang Ying's Jishi Du. When Ying was named Prime Minister, he'd be promoted to Dong Caoyuan. Because of the corruption of court politics, he wouldn't be an official. Ying would later name him as Cheji Jiangjun, in charge of defending Hebei. He'd also be named as Congshi Zhonglang, and to transport the soldiers, and he'd have no choice but to accept. When he went to attack Ji Sang, he'd fall into a trap and get injured and die. Cai Ke would have his works collected in 2 Juan in the "Tangshu Jingji zhi" which would be passed down.

Skip Sun Lin. Warning: Translation is a bit spotty on next guy, not sure the proper way for a few things. Cheng Xi

Cheng Xi

During the reign of Cao Rui he was named Qingzhou Provisional Governor, and by the King of Qi Cao Fang would be named Zhengbei Jiangjun.

Historical Records

At first, when Yu was made the Administrator of all of Qingzhou, the Qingzhou provisional governor Cheng Xi in his heart was uneasy, in in regards to military affairs, he'd have many conflicts over mistakes. Cheng Xi knew the Emperor liked pearls, and in secret would say "Although Yu has earned military might his troops are lax, he has plenty of tools and gold and pearls, which he has given to members of the military and people who hold office without paying taxes." As a result his merits were not seen.

*Note: The Yu here almost certainly refers to Tian Yu, who in Du Shu's biography it is mentioned that Cheng Xi had a reputation for hurting Tian Yu. I presume that this is the story, although I'm not certain if he reported about the pearls which is what got Tian Yu in trouble, or he made stuff up. In either case, his actions would be well-known later on. A quick check on Baidu reveals that this happened in 232, and Tian Yu would serve for 20 more years, so it must not have been that major. Also with how long his bio is, I'm tempted to translate Tian Yu's Baidu bio, so I'll put him in the (add) category for now. Also ignore my note on the translation, Tian Yu's baidu has a modern translation which is easier to understand, so doing it off that.

Nothing on Guo Xuanxin, Zhao Yuanru, or Wang Chen. Yuan Kan was the same one.

Another real poor one translated, since this is almost all from ancient text, I've been able to piecemeal a lot together, and in the end it ended up about Shi Chao more than Shi Qiao, but I'll post it since I spent the hour going over it. Shi Qiao/Chao/Xi ... d=so_1_doc

Shi Qiao, a Jin court official, zi Hongzu, he'd be a Shangshu Lang, Sanji Shilang. The Emperor would promote him but he would refuse, and would doubt (Shi?) Bao. When Bao reached his position, he would be ashamed, and politely say "My dear official has gotten rid of how many officials?" Bao would be abolished, and for his whole life wouldn't listen to officials. He would also engage in poor behavior, and transfer his residence to Dunqiu, and along with his younger brother (Shi) Chong would be harmed. His two sons (Shi) Chao, and (Shi) Xi would flee and be removed from office. The King of Chengdu (Sima) Ying would rebel, and Shi Chao would be named Zhechong Jiangjun, to supress Sun Xiu, and for that effort would be named a marquis. He would be named Zhenwu Jiangjun, and journey to Jingzhou to put down the brigand Li Chen. (Sima) Ying along with the king of Changsha (Sima) Yi would attack each other, and Chao would be named vanguard, and then be changed to Hunjun. Chen Deng would take Sima Zhong on a northern expedition, and (Shi) Chao would return to Ye. (Sima) Ying would take advantage of Chao and the Emperor being so far away to cause trouble, with Wang Shi being defeated, and Shi Chao having to set up the Emperor's palace in Ye. Wang Jun would attack Sima Ying at Ye, and Ying would set up Chao as You Jiangjun to handle Jun, and he'd be defeated and return. From Luoyang, he'd journey westward to Changan. The King of Hejian Sima Yong would name Shi Chao as Ling Beizhong Langjiang, and with Yong they'd attack the King of Donghai Sima Yue. Shi Chao would raise troops at Xingyang, and the You Jiangjun Wang Chan with the Dianbing Zhonglang Zhao Ze, and Shi Chao would also get a Jiedu, and the Yuzhou Provisional Governor Liu Qiao would continue to help. The King of Fanyang Sima Xiao however would rebel and behad Shi Chao, and Shi Xi would be dismissed from office. In Yongjia, he'd be named Da Fuyue Canjun.

Nothing on Sun Shou, Guo Yi, Zhao Xiu, Cheng Can, and Yang Xiu. Found a little on He Jiao's father and brother, but that's about it.

He You (?), male, from Hetang in Xiping (this was ancient He Zhouang, already destroyed today, modern-day Jiaozhuang conty in Xiping, in the north-west part of Guanzhuang). He was the the son of the Wei minister He Qia, he had great ability, and in the Zhengyuan years was named Shizhong. He'd reach the position of Tingwei, and Libu Shangshu. He would marry Xiahou Shang's daughter of the Xiahou clan, and have two sons, He Jiao and He Yu.

He Yu in 311 would be named Shangshu Zuoyou Pushe, as well as Zhengbei Jiangjun, as wel as Zhongshu Ling, Shangshu Ling, and participate in the army in major affairs regarding the country.

Yu Yi: ... d=so_1_doc On the post-Jin list due to how long it is.

Fu Zhi:

Fu Zhi (245-312), zi Zizhuang, from Niyang in Beide, he was the son of the Taichang Fu Gu, and was an important minister in Jin, and during the Chaos in Yongjia he would go around the country trying to raise troops to save the Emperor who had been captured.

Whole Life

Fu Gu would pass away in 255, so Fu Zhi would inherit his father's position as County Marquis of Yang, and in 264 the 5 ranks of nobility would be established, and Fu Zhi due to his father's contributions would be named Viscount of Jingyuan. Fu Zhi would be named Xiao, and in his youth would be known for his scholarship, and his ability and knowledge would be praised.

Fu Zhi would be appointed to the position Taizi Sheren, Sanji Huangmen Lang as well as Administrator of Xingyang, and while in Xingyang he'd create a (see wiki for the Chinese, can't copy in notepad) in order to solve the problem of flooding in Yanzhou and Yuzhou, and the people would set up a monument praising him. He'd later be named Tingwei, as well as Sanji CHangshi, and Zuojun Jiangjun.

In 290, Sima Yan would die. While his remains had yet to be buried, the Taifu Yang Jun would try to please the people's hearts, and he planned to give nobility to many people. Fu Zhi would write a letter to Yang Jun, saying the Emperor had just died, and the ministers shouldn't have their merits evaluated, but Yang Jun wouldn't listen. Not long after Fu Zhi was named Zhizhong. In 291, Jia Nanfeng would plot to overthrow Yang Jun, and at that time the palace would hear rumors about this affair, and the Luoyang South Dragon Gate would be closed, and Yang Jun would call together officials to discuss this in his residence, but Yang Jun in the end was unable to decide on an action. Fu Zhi asked that himself and the Shangshu Wu Mao (add?) could enter the palace to check the situation, and they would leave, and then the rest of the officials would leave as well. That night Yang Jun was murdered. After his death, the Shangshu Zuopushe Xun Kai (add) with the Taizi Shaofu Pei Kei would be at odds, and Pei Kai's son was Yang Jun's son in law, s0 Pei Kai had been named Fu Tingwei, and Yang Jun while he'd been focused on politics had a lot he sent to the Tingwei, which was put on tial. Fu Zhi not only proved Pei Kai was innocent, but also used the example of the Rebellion of Gaoping where Sima Yi didn't kill Cao Shuang's Sima Lu Zhi (add/check, update Encyclopedia to not be fictional), but also later would name him Provisional Governor of Qinzhou, and would present a memorial arguing not to kill the people who worked under Yang Jun. In the end all the people under Yang Jun were pardoned.

Fu Zhi would have his position changed to Sili Xiaowei, and because of his merits in the murder of Yang Jun he'd be named a county duke, but Fu Zhi would refuse to take his position, and would only accept being Lingzhou County Duke. He would be granted 4000 households of food in tribute, of which he'd give 2,200 to his son Fu Chang as well as the nobility; he would also give his original nobility to his nephew Fu Juan, and change his tital to Donghai Pavilion Marquis. The same year, the King of Chu Sima Wei would have Jia Nanfeng forge a fake letter to exterminate the King of Runan Sima Liang and Wei Guan, and Fu Zhi because he'd hesitate to carry out this order would be removed from office. A year later he'd be named Guanglu Xun, and later would be dismissed again.

In 296, the Di's Qiwannian would obtain Qinzhou and Yongzhou, and the Qiang would rebel and choose to support him, and turn against Jin. Fu Zhi would be named Anxi Junsi, as well as Sanji Changshi, and the the Anxi Jiangjun Si Xiahou Jun would work with him to put down Qiwannian, but they made no progress, and three years later it would take Meng Guan's great effort to pacify Qiwannian. After the battle he was named Weiwei and Sanji Changshu, as well as Grand Glorious Master, and Menqian Shifang Xingma.

In 300, the King of Zhao Sima Lun would assassinate Jia Nanfeng and take control of the government, and appoint Fu Zhi as Zhong Shujian, as well as Sanji Changshi and Glorious Grand Master, and pacify the hearts of the court members. Although Fu Zhi declined on account of illness, Sima Lun would still appoint him as a Yushi. Wang Rong, Chen Zhun, and other people knew of Fu Zhi's appointment, and they were all said relievedly "With Fu Zhi in a public office, I can concentrate with ease." The next year Sima Lun would sieze the throne, and Fu Zhi was named Right Glorious Grandmaster, Kaifu, and Shizhong. In April Sima Lun would be killed by the rebellion of the King of Qi Sima Jiong, and Sima Zhong would return to the throne. Fu Zhi because he'd accepted a post from Sima Lun asked for permission to resign from his post, but it was denied; later the Ting Wei would notice that Sima Lun's order to sieze the throne was written by the Zhong Shusheng, and would investigate the Zhong Shujian Fu Zhi, but all matters were pardoned, and moreso it was found that Fu Zhi really hadn't wrote the edict and he was reinstated to his Glorious Grand Master position. Fu Zhi would also be appointed Taizi Shaifu.

In 306, Sima Zhong would die, and his younger brother Sima Chi would ascend. Fu Zhi would be named Glorious Grand Master, Shizhong, and later was named Shangshu Youpushe, and Zhongshu Jian. Fu Zhi at this time was an important minister, and often would refuse on account of the closeness between a ruler and his master, and in these two years he'd get along with others; at the same time due to being proficint in country affairs, he'd participate in the court system often on various affairs. Fu Zhi would then be appointed Right Glorious Grand Master, Kaifu, Taizi Taifu, and Shizhong. In 311 he was named Situ.

The same year the Dajiangjun Gou Xi would dent a memorial to move the capital to Cangyuan, and and Sima Chi would decide to move the capital city. Fu Zhi would be sent to Heyin to make camp and to prepare ships for the Emperor's travel by water, but Sima Chi would be blocked by robbers running amuck and wouldn't leave Luoyang. At that time the Qian Zhao army would make a breakthrough in Luoyang, and Sima Chi would be taken to Pingyang. Fu Zhi as a result with Gou Xi would again establish a way to travel, and would establish himself at Heyin, where he was named Situ, Jiechi, and Dadudu of all military affairs, which would be spread throughout the land, and he'd send his son Fu Xuan and the Shangshu Ling He Yu would raise a volunteer army to go rescue Sima Chi, and himself would station troops in a small town, and name Fu Chang as Heyin Xianling, and to wait for Fu Xuan. The next year Qian Zhao's internal king Liu Can would attack Fu Zhi's men stationed at a ford, and as a result Fu Zhi would die of illness, being 69 years old.

This one was hard due to all the old Chinese and having to work out what was there. He Pan

He Pan, zi Huixing, from Shu. He would be named Zhubo of a state.


The Shu provisional governor Huangfu Yan would be harmed by the Yamen Zhang Hong, being falsely accused of rebellion. At this time He Pan would be making funeral arrangements for his mother, and he'd unexpectedly go to Liangzhou to pay his respects, to prove Huangfu Yan wasn't a rebel, and he would explain the issues with Yan's problem. Wang Jun was in Yizhou, and would refudiate the postioin of Biejia. Jun planned to attack Wu, and would send He Pan to present a memorial to the court, to express the key moments, the order would appear again, and Zhang Hua and He Pan would prepare suitable supplies for the attack. Jun would twice dispatch He Pan to Yan Hu, to express his plan to assault Wu.

Personal Career

He Pan was good at giving orderes, and the Emperor was benevolent, so he'd order him to join Wang Jun as a Junshi. When Sun Hao would surrender to Wang Jun, Wang Hun would be upset with Wang Jun, and want to attack Wang Jun, so He Pan would advise Wang Jun to take Sun Hao with Wang Hun, so they could split the accolades. He Pan would be named Wang Jun's Fuguo Sima, and named Marquis of Guannei. He'd be named Xingyang Ling, and in handling his affairs, he'd get a good name. He would remove the Tingwei (?) Ping. At that time the Tingwei Qing Zhong Chong would regard He Pan as a Shu shi, look lightly on him, and only after judging him, would have a strong admiration for him. He'd be named Adminsitrator of Xuancheng, would be unable to do it, and then was named Sanji Shilang. When Yang Jun was in power, he'd set up his relatives in positions of power, and would desire favor and self-defense. He Pan would be named Fei, and along with Shi Chong would comment on a memorial to the Emperor. The words would be spread by Shi Chong. The Emperor would not recieve it. For the efforts in killing Yang Jun, he'd be named Marquis of Xicheng, given tribute from 10,000 households, was granted numerous bolts of silk, and his younger brother He Feng would be named Marquis of Pingqing, his eldest son He Kui named Marquis of Guanzhong. He Pan would let half of his silk and tribute, and divide it among his kin, rather than to keep it for himself. He'd be named Yijun Xiaowei, and shortly after, would be named Dongqiang Xiaowei. He'd be named Yangzhou Provisional Governor, and in 3 years, he'd be named Da Sinong. He'd then be named Yanzhou Provisional Governor, as well as Yingyang Jiangjun, and ask to resign but not be permitted. The Taichang Cheng Can, the Zuo Jiangjun Bian Cui would both advice him to do his office duty, and when an order came down that he must take up his position, he would unexpectedly claim illness and not do it. When the King of Zhao Sima Lun siezed the throne, he'd dispatch an envoy to recruit He Pan, and the envoy would say the illness was true. Sima Lun was furious, and wanted to kill He Pan, so He Pan had no choice, and would accept in spite of his illness. When he arrived in Luoyang, he was 59 years old. He Pan was fair in his heart, and was very strict in his office, have affection for happy people, and kind-hearted scholars would have talent. He'd be named the Zhongzheng of Liangzhou and Yizhou, but would be sluggish in going to those positions. The Baxi Chen Shou, Yan Yi, and the Qianwei Fei Li were all famed scholars in the west, but they would be slandered by the villages, and be criticized for over 10 years. He Pan would say what was right and wrong, and everyone would dismiss the grievances. Although He Pan was in a prominent post, his family would live poorly, and he didn't even have concubines or maids to craft music, and would only cross the river to handle affairs. His son He Zhang would inherit his nobility, as well as his father's style.

Gao Guang (nothing on Gao Dan)

Gao Guang (? - 308), zi Xuanmao. From Yu in Chenliu (modern-day southern part of Qixian in Henan), a Jin official, the son of the Cao-Wei Taiwei Gao Rou, he would be named Shangshu Ling, Jinzi Grand Glorious Master, and Yanling Xiangong. In 308 he'd die, be named Sikong posthumously, as well as Shizhong.

Life Experience

In his youth he'd be proficient in his family business, and familiar with criminal law theory. At first he was named Taizi Sheren and gradually would move up to Shangshu Lang, and then would be named Youzhou provisional governor, and then Adminstrator of Yingzhou. At that time Sima Yan would set up Huangsha prison, and would use the legal code to guard against prisoners. Because Gao Guang was well versed with the laws of past dynasties, he would be named Huangsha Yushi, with his salary being equivalent to a Yushi Zhongcheng. Later he'd also be named Tingwei.

In the Yuankang era (291-299), he'd be named Shangshu, responsible for the Sansongcao (nobility ranks). At that time the king of Zhao Sima Lun would rebel, and Gao Guang would hold onto his moral principles and defend them.

In 301, Sima Lun would commit suicide, and Sima Zhong would return to the throne. The king of Qi Sima Jiong would assist in governing, and name Gao Guang as Tingwei, as well as Shangshu, along with Fengche Duwei.

In 305, Gao Guang would accompany Sima Zhong to put down the King of Chengdu Sima Ying and earn merit, and would be named Yanling Xiangong, and given tribute of 1800 households. At that time the court would hold Gao Guang in high esteem for his knowledge of law, and because of this many times would put him in charge of legal affairs. In the 12th month, Zhang Fan would force Sima ZHong to go to Changan, and many of the court administers would be scattered, with no one accompany Sima Zhong, with only Gao Guang waiting on Sima Zhong when going to the west. He would be named Shangshu Zuo Pushe, as well as Sanji Changshi. Gao Guang's elder brother Gao Dan would also be appointed to positions, holding positions successively as Xuzhou and Yongzhou provisional governor, and because of his disposition it was thought he would not be upright and unrestrained, but he would be firm and resolute surpassing normal people, having the same moral character as his brother Gao Guang. Gao Dan would constantly say that Gao Guang would adhere to the smallest things, and always with these irrelevant details would criticize Dan, but Gao Guang in his treatment toward his brother would act with more sincerety and respect.

In 306, Sima Zhong would return to Luoyang, and at that time the Taidi was established, and people were cautious to select a person of a bility, so Gao Guang was named Taidi Shaofu, as well as Grand Glorious Master, Sanji Changshi as before.

In 307, Sima Chi would ascend, name him as Grand Glorious Master, award him a Jinzhang Zishou (gold badge and purple cord), and with Fu Zhi would be valued highly.

In 308 Gao Guang would be named Shangshu Ling, along with his other positions. In the 11th month, he'd die of illness, and be posthumously named Sikong and Shizhong. As it happend Luo Yang was overcome at that time, so he was unable to get a posthumous name.
