Biography

Historic (Confirmed)

Mi Fang, styled Zifang, was Mi Zhu’s younger brother. He was named Chancellor of Pengcheng by Cao Cao, but left to serve Liu Bei.

As Guan Yu attacked Cao Cao’s forces north up the Han River in AD 219, Mi Feng held garrison command as Administrator of Nan Commandery at Jiangling. There had been a fire in the arsenal, and Guan Yu blamed Mi Fang and threatened to punish him on his return. When Lü Meng brought an army of Sun Quan to attack Jing province, Mi Fang surrendered.

In AD 223, now in service of Wu, Mi Fang went with He Qi to capture Qichun, north of the Yanzi in Jiangxia.

Note that Mi Fang served each of the three rival kingdoms.
