I was reading Rafe's To Establish Peace and came along something saying there was a Gan Ning who served Liu Zhang and later rebelled against him, was defeated, and fled to Jing.
I would check the characters in the name to check if he was the same as the known one. but could not find them.
The fleeing to Jing thing makes sense since he ended up serving Liu Biao, in Jing.
Anyone know if they are one and the same?
From Liu Yan's SGZ biography with reference to Yin Xiong Ji, Gan Ning rebelled (together with Lou Fa and Chen Mi) shortly after Liu Yan died. In Gan Ning's SGZ biography with reference to Wu Shu, it mentioned that Gan Ning deserted his post and returned him not long after being employed in Yi Zhou. Given that both records mentioned Gan Ning's stay in Yi Zhou, we can deduce that "Gan Ning" refered to the same person. The only thing is the discrepancy pertaining to how Gan Ning came to Jing Zhou.
