My friend gave me these pictures from a Chinese site so I do not know who or where they are from. Credit goes to whomever did these picture. I though it would be nice to share it to you. It's quiet a list but I got some more whom I don't know. I'll show those to you some other day.

There are some who I do not know. Can you translate these names, please?
卑弥呼 (err...)
范增 (Xu ?)
韩信 (Han ?)
刘邦 (Liu ?)
吕雉 (Lu ?)
司马师 (Sima ?)
项羽 (...)
萧何 (? He)
虞姬 (:roll:)

Zhang_of_Wei: You can't see it? I wonder Sun Fin can...how about I give another link: http://s649.photobucket.com/albums/uu213/Masatog/ (Ignore page 4 since that is my plans for LoCC MOD).

They're almost all from one of the other most famous eras of chinese history, Han vs. Chu.

After the Qin dynasty was overthrown by rebellions China fractured into numerous kingdoms, eventually the most powerful two emerged. In eastern china, starting from Jiangdong, was West (yes ironically) Chu, lead by "the conqueror" Xiang Yu (项羽) (Sun Ce who was named the little conqueror was named after Xiang Yu cos he reminded people of him). Whilst in western china, was Han, lead by Liu Bang (刘邦) "The People's King".

Liu Bang eventually beat Xiang Yu in an incredibly epic way and went on to find the Han dynasty, which would last 400 years and be considered one of China's two greatest Imperial dynasties (the greatest one being Tang).

韩信 or Han Xin was Liu Bang's greatest general who used to serve Xiang Yu but defected.
萧何 or Xiao He was Liu Bang's equivalent of Xun Yu or Zhuge Liang, a master administrator and politician.
范增 or Fan Zeng was Xiang Yu's top advisor.
虞姬 or Yu Ji was Xiang Yu's lover and concubine.
吕雉 or Lu Zhi was Liu Bang's wife and later became a famous Empress Dowager whose powerplay caused endless turmoils in the early Han Dynasty.

司马师 or Sima Shi is the first son of Sima Yi and elder brother to Sima Zhao in Three Kingdoms.


I don't know who 卑弥呼 is though. But it's not a Chinese name. It seems like either a northern barbarian name or Japanese.

Thank you to Crazedmongoose for the translation and also for a description of each! To finish my remaining pictures I'll post them here (and edit the first post to add them). Wallpapering? I think you can since whoever did these pictures to show us, they wanted us to like them as far as wallpapering them.
Since all my yapping is boring your guys, I'll skip to the main point:

Oh wow, that's a very unsympathetic portrayal of Xiang Yu. :)

Can you copy and paste the other four unknown names? I could perhaps translate them. (or just link me to the page)
