After Dong Zhuo was killed, his two top generals Li Jue and Guo Si tried to take over Chang An. Cao Cao would save the emperor in the end and take him back to Xu Chang with him. The emperor saw in later years that he was being used when Cao Cao snatched his bow and arrow from him and killed a deer. Since it was the emperors bow the attendants said "Long live the emperor." When Liu Bei saw that he decided to become Cao Cao's enemy and joined the emperor's alliance against Cao Cao.

For those who don't know, Cao Cao was actually the first one tasked to kill Dong Zhuo, at least in the Three Kingdoms novel. By the time he met Dong Zhuo, he lost his courage and lying about want to give him a sword as a gift, and that's exactly what he did. I think the sword was a gift for him from accepting the task, but I'm not sure.

From then, ancient China was in a disordered and chaos state. The governments were in short lives generally, one after one, and Han was invaded and conquered by foreign peoples from the north area. That time was extremely dark and dying of the light. Around 300 years later, Ancient China was united and highly centralized again, and that was Tang, the most powerful and influential dynasty in the history of China. To make an analogy, Tang was as dominating as the Great British in 19th century. Moreover, Tang was so eclectic that the emperor appointed many foreigners as members in the empire's bureaucratic system, and that created the shine of the greatness of ancient Chinese culture, much much brighter than now, maybe ever.

There are 5,000 years of Chinese historical stories, but the Three Kingdoms period is the most exciting period of history. Many things are not mentioned here in general, such as Cao Cao, Guan Yu, Liu Bei, Zhuge Liang, Sima Yi, Zhou Yu, Lu Bu, Xun Yu, Yuan Shao, Lu Xun. Behind these names are a bit of a legendary story comparable to Napoleon, and this group of people gathered in the era of the end of the Eastern Han Dynasty. Moving the main chapters, a novel that 80% is true history has indeed become the most classic novel in China.

Having read the whole set of 60 books on Three Kingdoms histories, I have to say this video, despite missing so much things, did a wonderful job in putting them and sumarising altogether.

Fun Fact: The most famous 3 Kingdom story (which wasn't mentioned in this video) where they use Straw Ships to bait Cao Cao to shoot arrows and collect them was made up by the Three Kingdom show.

Yes, it was a fictional story, where before the battle of Red Cliffs Liu Bei's second in command Zhu GeLiang baited CaoCao to shoot arrows and so he got arrows It's entirely fictional pls don't take it seriously

I felt that lol. I remember the days when I was one of the reporters in class about this. Actually what I reported was like summarized since I was like 12 years old, and I didn't know this was that many wtf. My classmates were really bored, I can imagine myself reporting each kingdoms while everyone is asleep. Lol and it's not easy to explain since even I am having a brain crisis that time.

*Me:* _intensely listening to the story of the Three Kingdoms, remembering when my parents would talk about about Zhuge Liang and his brilliant strategies_ *In the Back of my Head, quietly:* “Ai chiki chiki bam bam! Ai chiki chiki chan chan!”

Just a side note: Lu Bu's name should be Lü Bu to be accurate, where the 'ü' isn't pronounced the same as the 'u'. Unfortunately such pronunciation doesn't exist in English, but you can find it in French and German, such as the 'u' in 'salut' (French) or the 'ü' in 'tschüß' (German). If you really want it in English, I would say that it does sound very similar to an old fashioned British way of pronouncing the 'oo' sound in the word 'choose'.

Lu Bu: A really great fighter that never lost a fight Also Lu Bu: Kept losing many battles until he was executed later on.

Three kingdoms fought for over 100 years for unification, and in the end, none of them achieved it. Talk about irony.

And the winner, West Jin, has the dubious honour of being probably the only United Dynasty in China to be corrupt as fuck from the first generation emperor.

ETA If anyone wonders why, with other out-of-chaos-comes-unity dynasties, such as West Han under Liu Bang, North Song under Zhao Kuangying, or Ming under Zhu Yuanzhang, those emperors either come from humble roots and climbed to the top with their leadership skills, or they started with a power level (Zhao Kuangying was a big general in Later Zhou dynasty, and he eventually amassed enough power to force the emperor and the empress dowager to abdicate for him) but it still takes cunning and humility to plan and exercise. The Sima clan on the other hand, are dirty schemers who got lucky by the time Sima Yan becomes emperor of all China. Now Sima Yan has conquered all of China, they think there’s nothing more to do, so lets get to those nonstop Porsche Parties already.

I am Chinese. I am very happy to see that the history of the Three Kingdoms can be understood by foreigners, but there are many mistakes. Just point out one. After Liu Biao died, Liu Bei only controlled Jiangxia County, and most of Jingzhou was controlled by Cao Cao. Part of Jingzhou is wrong, it was captured by Liu Bei after the Battle of Chibi

I actually didn't have much trouble keeping track of the names, but I thought the outfits looked confusingly similar at times. Although I guess that's more of a result of the actual dress at the time than any choice on your part.

I remember seeing a game on PS2 that had chinese clans going to war with each other. Early in the game some warlord named "Lu bu" wants to make an alliance with you. If you say no, the next turn he attacks you. If you say yes, he attacks you.

Oh, well, at least People DO wake-up to Worker-Right-Issues and 'Some More News' and 'Second Thought' get praised to Heaven for their Coverage of it.

Man, playing Dynasty Warriors back in the days there was only one guy I feared...Lu Bu, that SOB would fight me, all my body guards and officers and body guards plus whatever troops we had on hand single handedly, sometimes it took a good 20 minutes to defeat him.

Gao Zu is a title roughly meaning High Founder, 'cause he was the founder of the Han dynasty. His real name was Liu Bang. I don't think he was called Huang Di (meaning Emporer) at all, actually. I think he was just called Gao Zu Liu Bang, since Huang Di Gao Zu basically meant Emporer Emporer. Otherwise, your video is a really great summary of the Three Dynasties.
