The Reign of Sun Quan.

Unread postby Han Xin » Sat Mar 15, 2003 9:17 am

This is a summary of the reign of Sun Quan that I am trying to compile. Of all the rulers during RTK period, Sun Quan is probably my favourite. I only use Sun Quan's bio in SGZ as my only source, so there might be some variation from other sources. Some of the boring parts, I just summarised it, the more exciting parts had better details.

Sun Ce pass away, Sun Quan succeed as ruler of East Wu.

Sun Quan's mother pass away.

Sun Quan's attacked Huang Zu, destroyed his fleet, capture WeiCheng and subdue all the mountain tribes. Lu Fan captured PoYang. Cheng Pu settled the tribes in LeAn.

Sun Quan's brother, Sun Yi, the prefect of DangYang was killed by his own men. Sun Quan's cousin, Sun Yu, was send to replace.

Sun Quan order He Qi to capture ShangRao and divided into JianPing county.

Campaigning against Huang Zu, captured a great number of prisoners.

Spring. Sun Quan's troops attacked Huang Zu, Huang Zu send out his navy. Lu Meng's troops overwhelm Huang Zu's vanguard. Troops under the join command of Ling Tong and Dong Xi sacked (Huang Zu's) city. Huang Zu was captured and beheaded. Over 10,000 men and women were captured. He Qi settled the tribes of Yi and Xi, and divided the captured land into six new counties.

Liu Biao die, Lu Su asked to be send to JingZhou to send condolences to Liu Biao two sons, and to observed the situation in JingZhou, however when Lu Su arrived, he realized that Liu Cong had already surrender to Cao Cao. Lu Su meet up with Liu Bei. Liu Bei moved to down to XiaKou and send Zhuge Liang to see Sun Quan, Sun Quan send out Zhou Yu and Cheng Pu. Zhou Yu and Cheng Pu was made left-right commander and taken tens of thousand troops with Liu Bei to destroy Cao Cao's troops at ChiBi. Cao Cao burn his vessels and flee, great number of his troops die of hunger and plague, Liu Bei and Zhou Yu together chase Cao Cao to Nanjun.

Cao Cao return to the north, leaving Cao Ren and Xu Huang to set the defensive line at Jiangling and XiangYang. Gan Ning was surrounded by Cao Ren at YiLing. Using Lu Meng's strategy Zhou Yu was able to rescue Gan Ning. Sun Quan personally lead an attacked on HeFei, sending Zhang Shao to attack JiuJiang via DangTu. Zhang Shao army runs into troubles, Sun Quan spending over a months to capture the city without success. Cao Cao returns to JingZhou, sending Zhang Xi with cavalry troops to HeFei, Sun Quan withdrawed from HeFei.

Cao Ren abandon JiangLing and fled because of the heavy casualty. Sun Quan made Zhou Yu Prefect of NanJun. Liu Bei petitioning to the court to make Sun Quan "General of Chariots and Cavalry", and Grand Administrator of XuZhou (XuZhou Mu). Sun Quan in return also petitioned to make Liu Bei, Grand Administrator of JingZhou (JingZhou Mu), stationed at GongAn.

Change YuZhang into PoYang prefecture, change part ChangSha into HanChang prefecture. Lu Su was made prefect of HanChang stationed in LuKou.

Sun Quan moved his government to MoLing. Next year he reconstructed the city of MoLing was change to JianYe. A fortress was built in RuXu to guard off Cao Cao's invasion.

First month. Cao Cao attacked RuXu, Sun Quan held off Cao Cao for over a month, Cao Cao retreat also evacuating the population surround the JiangBin region.

Fifth month. Sun Quan invaded Wan city. Leap month (second fifth month in Chinese calendar), succeed. Captured LuJiang's prefect Zhu Guang and troops advisor Dong He with several tens of thousand of men and women.

That year, Liu Bei also conquered Shu. Seeing that Liu Bei just gain YiZhou, Sun Quan send Zhuge Jin to demand the prefectures of JingZhou. Liu Bei refuse to discuss anything regarding JingZhou until he gained LiangZhou. Sun Quan appoints 3 head of the southern prefectures, but Guan Yu refused them entry.

Guan Yu's refusal greatly angered Sun Quan, he ordered Lu Meng with Xu Zhong and Sun Gui plus 20,000 troops to take three prefectures of ChangSha, LingLing and GuiYang. Lu Su was send with 10,000 soldiers to station at BaQiu to hold off Guan Yu. Sun Quan arrived at LuKou to crowd the junction way. Lu Meng arrived to the south, 2 prefectures quickly surrender only the prefect of LingLing, Hao Pu, did not give in.

Then Liu Bei arrived at Gong An, he ordered Guan Yu to YiYang. Sun Quan quickly summoned backed Lu Meng to aid Lu Su. Lu Meng send men to trick Hao Pu, Hao Pu surrendered and all 3 prefectures was captured. To countered the threat of Guan Yu, Sun Jiao, and Pan Zhang was send with Lu Su to resist Guan Yu in YiYang.

Before the fighting started, Cao Cao entered HanZhong, Liu Bei fearing that YiZhou might be fallenned so he send an envoy to seek for peace with Sun Quan. Sun Quan in return send Zhuge Jin to agree on a truce. Sun Quan divided that everything in JingZhou east of ChangSha, JiangXia, and GuiYang belong to him, and NanJun, LingLing, and WuLing to the west belong to Liu Bei, Liu Bei then return to Shu to guard against Cao Cao. Sun Quan then left LuKou to attack HeFei, unable to capture HeFei because the gallant defending by Zhang Liao, Sun Quan withdraw.

Winter. Cao Cao arrived at JuChao with big force intend to attack RuXu.

Spring. Sun Quan order chief commandant Xu Xiang envoyed to Cao Cao to seek [Sun Quan] submission to Cao Cao, Cao Cao agree and asked the for marriage between the two houses.

Cao Cao wanted Guan Yu and Sun Quan to fight against each other to ease the siege of Xiang Yang. So he asked Cao Ren to gives Sun Quan's letter to Guan Yu via a crossbow. Guan Yu hesitated therefore did not advance.

Leap month (2nd 5th month), Sun Quan attacked Guan Yu, Lu Meng was order to take GongAn and capture general Shi Ren. Lu Meng arrived at Nanjun, the prefect of NanJun, Mi Fang, surrendered. Lu Meng garrison at JiangLing and comfort the civilian there, and released Yu Jin.

Guan Yu pretend to surrender, set up flags and puppets on top of the city wall, dissolved his army and rode out with 10 horsemen. Sun Quan then send Zhu Ran and Pan Zhang to intercept. 12th Month, Pan Zhang's cavalry general Ma Zhong captured Guan Yu, his son Guan Ping, Zhao Lei and settled JingZhou.

That year there was a terrible epidemic, therefore JingZhou was exempt from tax. Cao Cao promote Sun Quan to General of the Elite Cavalry, the Grand Administrator of JingZhou, and Marquis of NanChang.

(2) NanJiao is an altar used by Son of Heaven (the Emperor) for ceremony praying to the Jade Emperor (God).
(3) As far as I know, YiZhou (夷洲) was an ancient name for the island of Taiwan, however I do not know where is TanZhou (亶洲) Vancouver may be? :D

Unlike his father Sun Quan was a terrible ruler. The only reason he fought along with shu or wei was so he could get something out of it. He was great friends with Liu Xuande but attacked him with wei just so he could get Jingzhou. This also resulted in him killing Guan yu. Plus this also resulted in him gettin some of his good officers killed. Lu Meng for example.
Long live the soul and spirit of Liu Xuande, son of heaven, The Sun Stalker. Down with the southland traitors and the foolish cao family.

I have a question about this. When Lu Xun died, and lightning struck two poles, what is the signifigance of this? Is it like a chinese legend? For example, the flagpole breaking brings bad fortune.

These bad things happening are called omens. They warn people that something really bad is about to happen.
