Interesting read, I admire the Caos even more now.

Very interesting read on his early experiences and talents, and reflects his state of mind. Quite a life Cao Pi had. :)

My favourite historical figure of the time. Nice to see he had such an interesting early life.
I've a brave warrior in my army. Shen Ai is his name, and he can slay this Hua Xiong.

Wei has no more famous commanders, Shen Ai takes lead of the vanguard!

Even a commoner on the street knows what Shen Ai is thinking!

Thank you so much for sharing that with us, Lady Wu! That really was an interesting read, that bit with the fighting with sugar canes in the halls was really unexpected. It’s rare to find things like this that are focused on matters outside of politics.

There were a lot of other interesting points here with comparing Cao Cao and Liu Bei’s parenting; has anyone ever come across any other mentions of Cao Pi escaping Wan on horseback as a child? It must’ve been quite a chaotic situation.

Is Cao Pi's SGZ biography still untranslated because of the length?
