His greatest feat was being adopted by Guan Yu and then he was being executed by Wu in 219.

Guan Xing is far better, but sadly dies not long after getting military rank by Zhuge.
He also executed the traitors Mi Fang and Fu Shiren, I think.

His greatest feat was being Guan Yu's child and being executed by Wu in 219 :lol:
Not much is mentioned about him. All we know is that he was Guan Yu's son. It may be mentioned that he was in the army but i am not even sure about that.

Duels are rare, I know of about four. I know of about 10 generals killed historically by other generals in battle. Guan Ping is in neither of those lists

Guan Ping's only note has been mentioned, he was the son of Yu and was executed with his father.
“You, are a rebellious son who abandoned his father. You are a cruel brigand who murdered his lord. How can Heaven and Earth put up with you for long? And unless you die soon, how can you face the sight of men?”

yep, also Guan Xing was a minister not a general. Guan Suo's existence can't actually be proved historically! Tons of fun stuff in the Guan Family.
Zhang Bao died young! (as in teenager or early 20s) Nothing to do with the conversation but since he is often paired with Guan Xing i thought i would mention him.

Guan Yu's real son. Apparently followed Guan Yu in battle against Cao Ren, but after the attack failed, was captured by Ma Zhong and executed alongside his father.

It's hard to tell what his talents may have been like. He was killed before he had a chance to prove himself. He has no historical achievements that are recorded anywhere.

Yeah there is just nothing out there that even mentions Guan Ping. Either he is just one of those people who got lost in the shuffle of history or was just a guy who liked to accompany his father on his campaigns without actually fighting.

I take it Guan Xing wasn't favored by Zhuge and never got any military post historical then.
Poor guy... he's still my favorite over Ping though. ;)
