I loved reading about this little scheme of Cao Cao’s. :lol:

No one plans their retirement like Cao Cao does! (In the novel, Bronze Bird was supposed to be his retirement home.)

However, the whole thing is a bit sketchy (ok, when it comes to Cao Cao and girls, everything is sketchy)---weren't Cao Cao friends with Qiao Xuan? It seems.. uh... to have a relationship with your friend's *daughters* (by today's standards, of course).

yeah but xu yuan that is not from sgz =/. It's just a folktale, just like zhao yun and the zhuge liang stealing zhou yu wife one


Ahem.. I saw tabloid and assumed wrong, sorry about that.

EDIT: Didn't Qiao Xuan promise his daughter's to Cao Cao though?

LI PENG BIT HIS FINGER OFF! That's tabloid worthy...

I think his name's Li Peng. He's the doctor who conspired with Dong Cheng against Cao Cao with the Girdle Mandate.

He is called Ji Ping in the novel, the far less interesting Ji Ben in the SGZ.

The Curiosity of Cao Cao Turned a Head

According to the Book of Jin (Jin Shu), Xuan Di's Record, Wei Wu Di (Cao Cao's posthumous title) heard a rumour that Xuan Di (Sima Yi's posthumous title) had the ability to turn his head 180 degrees backwards like a wolf. To test the truth, he summoned Sima Yi to have a stroll with him but ordered him to walk in front. He called Sima Yi from the back and Sima Yi turned his head around and answered him without moving his entire body.

From then on, Cao Cao viewed Sima Yi as an extraordinary person and warned his son Cao Pi that, "this man is not a person who would be subservient to others, you have to be cautious towards him." Fortunately for Sima Yi, Cao Pi was friendly to him and many a times spoke in his favour; hence Sima Yi was unscathed from Cao Cao's clutches.




I heard of this tale a long time ago but forgotten where it was from. Now I've finally found it to share with everyone. :D

Ok, this story definitely needs a picture. Sima Yi is like an owl! What a hoot!

Very interesting. Vote Sima Yi to star in another exorcist film to cut down expense for visual effects. :lol:

greedy stingi cao hong almost executed for refusing lend money :mrgreen:

from cao hong sgz bio...

Cao Hong’s family had been wealthy but he used to be a stingy man. When the young Cao Pi went to borrow money from him, Cao Hong refused him. As a result Cao Pi had always borne a grudge against him. So eventually, Cao Pi had Cao Hong put in jail on the pretext that one of his retainers had violated the law, and was about to have Cao Hong executed. All the officers at court pleaded for his life, but none succeeded. And so, Empress Dowager Bian said to the Empress Guo, “If Cao Hong dies today, tomorrow I shall have the Emperor depose you.” Thus the Empress, with many a tear, implored Cao Pi to spare Cao Hong. Cao Pi conceded at the end
