I know all there is to know about Sun Ce, SUn Jian, and Sun Quan but I recently discovered I knew surprisingly little about the later rulers. I know everthing in the novel and a little more but not that much overall.

Sun Liang and Sun Xiu, what were their accomplishents and characteristics? What was their domestic affairs and military affairs?

Sun Hao I know was tyrannical, listened to eunuchs, and brought the end to Wu but what did he do in his reign? What were his characteristics and motives? I know he removed generals and such but who and for what? How was the kingdom run under him?

Please give as much information as you can.

Historically, he never killed Wen Chou. As for Yan Liang, that's a hard question; historically, there aren't many accomplishments of Liang's to indicate that he was a decent general, so I'd most likely place my money on Guan Yu still winning.

That's where your mistaken actually. Yuan Shao used Yan Liang against the Wuhuan. He was quite successful. But the chinese tend to ignore the barbarians unless it's a huge campaign so it didn't end up in SGZ(although it is in another book that is more focused on the Xian Bi, Xiong Nu, and Wuhuan written by a "crazy" chinese scholar).

Where were Yan Liang and Wen Chou at the Battle against Dong Zhuo?
I want you to bury him. Should he die in the process is his own problem.

Thats very open ended and could/should be made into a thread, but i think there alreayd is a thread, I personally think if the yellow turbans had won they would easily break apart and there would just be more turmoil.

Yuan Shao left them in the He Bei area to defend it in case like the Wuwan or such invaded, that's why they were not present in the campaign against Luo Yang.

What exactly does it mean in Jiang Wan's SGZ bio when it says, "Zhuge Liang established the Prime Minister's office?"
