Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gu Yong (168 - 243) was a minister of Eastern Wu during the Three Kingdoms era of Chinese history. He learned the classics and calligraphy from Cai Yong when the latter came to Wu briefly as a refugee. His family is one of the four illustrious houses of Wu (Zhu, Lu, Gu, Zhang). He became a governor of several prefectures throughout Yang Province. He was successful in pacify and integrate rebels and minorities under his jurisdiction. When Sun Quan became the King of Wu, he bestowed the nobility title (Yang Xui Xiang Hou) on Gu Yong. After Sun Quan declared himself the emperor, Gu Yong was appointed to the high rank of chancellor. Gu Yong was said to be a reticent person and a teetotaler, famous for his standards of personal conduct; whenever he spoke, however, he spoke with confidence and reason.show more
