Biography

Collaborative Works

Zhu Ying is mentioned in the Liang shu. He was an officer in the service of Wu. He and Kang Tai were dispatched as envoys to Funan and other Southeast Asian states. Zhu Ying wrote a record of Funan during his lifetime known as the Funan yiwu zhi. (Xiong, 691)

Historians believe that Funan refers to an ancient state in Cambodia that maintained trade relations with both India and China. The state may have occasionally sent tribute to Chinese rulers, and most of what is known about it comes from Chinese records such as the one penned by Zhu Ying.
