[ Home –> Romance of the Three Kingdoms Novel and History ]
Kongming’s Archives’ novel and history section is dedicated to the Chinese novel, Romance of the Three Kingdoms (Sanguo yanyi, 三国演义), written in the 14th century and attributed to Luo Guanzhong, along with historical events, nations, and people behind it and the relative Han and Jin dynasties. We aspire to make this an interesting and educational storehouse of related material, a great deal of which is not available elsewhere in English.
Always working toward this goal, we present Three Kingdoms essays and manuscripts; introductions, translations (including historical records from the Sanguozhi) and biographies; battle, officer, and event chronologies; images (maps and cultural items), art, and even poems. We even offer an online forum, the Scholars of Shen Zhou, to discus these and other topics. This is also your chance to share your Three Kingdoms work with other people in the Sanguo community. This section is the product of its contributors, translators, authors, and writers; a community effort.
If you see any unfamiliar abbreviations hold your mouse cursor over them to display a definition (e.g. SGZ) if you are using a modern standards-compliant browser like Firefox. You can also read the novel and kingdom introductions, which should give you a nice basis with which to better understand and learn from content featured here.
