Besides, even though Yang Yi hated his guts, Wei Yan should'ver known this and taken some precousions rather then revolting. He could've simply pleeded his case to Jiang Wei who would've swiftly dealt with the problem. Or, more likely, he could've assassinated Yang Yi.
This being said, Yang Yi was not thinking for the good of his kingdom and should be to blame.
number 1 yang yi made rumors of wei yan submiting to the north number 2 WEi Yan know how to take chang an because xiahou yuan sister or daughter was marryed to zhang fei they have a child got marry to liu shan wei yan use this plot and told zhugeliang about it to capture chang an but kongming did not listen.xiahou mao was gov of chang an.Lance wrote:I personally think that Wei Yan was relatively loyal. He never gave Kong-Ming problems on any of the campaigns, and his only screw-up was getting too far ahead during the initial campaign on Yizhou, which can be attributed to being new and not yet used to taking orders(Wei Yan seems to be one better suited to giving orders, not taking them, so I assume he had to adjust). After ZGL's death, he ignores Yang Yi and presses for a continuation of the campaign. There is no telling as to what would result had Wei Yan got his way, but Yang Yi, who had long been his rival, seized the chance to brand him a rebel and traitor, and had him killed.
