Even though the First Sovereignty (Liu Bei) claimed himself a descendant of Emperor [Xiao] Jing, still many generations had been passed and too distant to be traced, so the temple's arrangement (of Shu-Han) was hardly clear. Despite its (Shu-Han's) inheritance of Han's throne, which emperor was the high ancestor for its (Shu-Han's) establishment of ancestral temple was not known. At that time many talented worthies were assisting the First Sovereignty (Liu Bei), with the Confucian scholars serving in the palace. The system and institution of the ancestral temple (of Shu-Han) should have its own regular constitution, but the recorded accounts were either missing or omitted, just how regrettable it is!
