Yes. It says in Zhao Yun's SGZ bio that she was indeed beautiful. This therefore serves to show Yun's discipline and restraint.

I mean, if Zhao Yun really died in such a way, someone or something whould have recorded it. And how could a small needle kill someone? I don't think it's possible (except if the needle is 3 feet long).


Hemophilia, although that sounds crazy.

Oh yeah, hemophilia, but a needle? Dude a needle makes small scar (I wouldn't call it scar)...I mean, tiny hole...

If he was cut then it'd be possible, but a small needle?

Beside, I never heard this story before, not even mentioned in wikipedia (here goes someone who study from wikipedia lol). It's still sounds weird and impossible...

If Zhao Yun really had Hemophilia, he could have easily died from a needle sting into his shoulder.

But its unlikely that he had survived for that long.So very likely just a tale.

That's another point, in fact, Idon't even think he didn't have any scar at all. He's a general, and I'm pretty sure in his 60 years or so of living, he must had some wounds from all those battles...

And...shouldn't her wife be familiar with his skin, it was weird for her to suddenly realized her hushband has no scar and then tried to made him bleed...that's too funny...

And I see female somination in that story...somehow...lol

Yep...if it was a hard prick then it's possible.

It was on wikipedia, but someone removed it for some reason. It's gotta be either a tale or otherwise he's too good. I'll go with the former.

I heard another thing where he recieved a battle scar from someone(can't remember) and then someone giving him a ring to put on that finger to hide the scar.

I would think that in the Battle of Chang Ban, he would have been cut quite a few times.

Why did Zhao Fan defect?
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!

Zhao Fan was a minor warlord and prefect of Guiyang Commandery during the late Han Dynasty period of Chinese history. Zhao Fan surrendered to Zhao Yun after being attacked by his army at Guiyang following the Battle of Red Cliffs. Zhao Fan then unintentionally sparked the rage of Zhao Yun by suggesting his marriage to his older brother's widow. He became a minister of Cao Wei during the Three Kingdoms period.

He joined Shu temporarily because he feared Yun, and then fled to Wei when he angered Yun.

In history Zhao Fan surrendering had nothing to do with Zhao Yun specifically. Liu Bei possessed a sizeable army and there was no sense in Zhao Fan resisting.
