Definetly Cao Zhi. IMO he was the smartest of Cao Cao's sons and his poetry is very nice.

I think it was Cao Chong. That kid was very clever. Too bad he died young. When he died Cao Cao was devastated. If I remember correctly, Cao Cao remarked to Cao Pi after Cao Chong's death, "Poor me, lucky you." :lol:

Is this what you're referring to?

此我之不幸,而汝曹之幸也

Loose translation: <i>My misfortune, is your fortune</i>

Cao Zhi is my personal favourite (out of Cao Cao's 25 sons), with Cao Chong right on his heels almost overtaking! :lol:

the first-born: Cao Ang...

Why Cao Cao felt Dian Wei was more important to him pretty much angers me... :x

Mine goes without saying ;) I even spent some cash tracking down a good English biography of him, just so I could learn more.

And thanks for the compliment, SL :)
