Biography

Historic (Confirmed)

Jiang Gong was one of the bandit leaders living between the Huai and Ru rivers along with Chen Cheng and Qu Gong, around AD 200. Around c. AD 201 Li Tong began launching campaigns to clear them out. All under their command were routed and Li Tong delivered their heads to Cao Cao. This earned him the title Marquis of a Chief Commune and he was appointed Grand Administrator of Runan. (1)
