Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fu Qian (died 263) was a military general of Shu Han during the Three Kingdoms era of Chinese history. He was the son of Fu Rong, also a Shu Han general. Fu was a native of Yiyang (present-day Xinyang, Henan). Fu's father Fu Rong was killed in action during the Battle of Xiaoting in 222 against Sun Quan's forces. Fu inherited his father's official position and served Shu Han as General of the Household of the Left, before being promoted to Area Commander of Guanzhong. In 263, during the campaign on Shu by the rival state of Cao Wei, Fu was sent into battle to resist the enemy. At that time, many people praised Fu and his father as "loyal and righteous for over generations" . Fu was tasked to defend Yangping Pass while Jiang Shu was sent to engage the enemy. However, Jiang surrendered to the enemy by opening the gates and letting them in. The Cao Wei general Hu Lie led his troops to attack Fu's position. Fu was eventually killed in the futile attempt to drive out the enemy.show more
