Biography

Historic (Confirmed)

Zhou Chao and Guo Shi commanded a religious bandit group which was previously headed by Guan Gu, under the title General of the Peaceful Heaven (or General Who Pacifies Heaven). Zhou Chao and Guo Shi are thought to have been the successors to Guan Gu, who likely died earlier in the year. Zhou Chao and Guo Shi ravaged Lingling, Guiyang, and Changsha until they were sought out and destroyed by Sun Jian, Administrator of Changsha, in AD 187. (1)
