Which officer had the most honorable burial?

Unread postby Waking Dragon » Mon Aug 09, 2004 5:03 pm

Which general, during the three kingdoms era, had THE most honorable burial out of any other general? I think it was Guan Yu, but I'm not sure... I was just wondering...PeAcE

How about Dian Wei and Guo Jia's burial? I'm pretty sure that Cao Cao would do that lavishly.

Lu Meng. Lu Meng. Lu Meng.
On Lu Meng's death, Sun Quan found a storage of all the money Lu Meng was ever rewarded for his military career. Lu Meng said in his will that when he died, the money be returned to the state. Lu Meng had the biggest funeral in Wu history. He was very loyal and virtous.

I'd say Zhao Yun since his sons were garrisoned at his grave.

I'm going to go in the other direction and say Zhuge Liang.Though he later got a temple and other lavish praises,Zhuge specified that he wanted a simple burial despite the fact that he was Prime Minister and one of the greatest talents of the age.

I think that is very honourable,that he wished for no special treatment for himself rather than a big blowout funeral where the state treasury is opened up to pay for it.

Just like Lu Meng.
Zhang Yi also deserves praise. He died during Jiang Wei's campaign's. He asked to go and fight even though he was very sick and was about to die. He knew he would fight that battle to his death, and the southern tribes regarded him as a god.

Not sure. I believe Zhu Ran had one of the most lavish burials in Wu

Didn't Cao Cao build a temple for Guan Yu as a memorial?
