Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fu Rong (died 222) was a military general of Shu Han during the Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history. Fu was a native of Yiyang (present-day Xinyang, Henan). In 221, Fu followed Liu Bei in the campaign against Sun Quan's forces, leading to the Battle of Xiaoting. In 222, Sun's general Lu Xun defeated Liu's forces and Liu was forced to retreat. Fu volunteered to defend the rear from pursuing enemy troops. Even when all his comrades were killed in battle, Fu still held on firmly and vented his increasing fury on the enemy. He was offered a chance to surrender, but he replied, "Dogs of Wu! Do you think a general of Han will surrender to the enemy?" Fu then charged the hordes of enemies alone, and was killed. Fu's courageous action was quite admired at the time that even the Emperor Wu of Jin specifically mentioned this incident in his decree. Fu's son, Fu Qian, continued serving Shu Han as a military general until his eventual death during the conquest of Shu by Wei in 263.show more
