Three Kingdoms Novel and History Officer and Ruler Biographies

You are here: [ Home –> Three Kingdoms History –> Emperor Biographies ]

One this page you can find links to officer, ruler, and emperor biographies from the Han Dynasty, the Three Kingdoms era, and the Jin Dynasty. Use the menu below to jump to a section and from that point use the links provided to see hosted biographies. This section will be receiving constant additions and we are always willing to take on skilled writers to participate. If you want to take a part in this, or if you want to submit some material, please email me and tell me about your work.

Some links below are external. I am providing you with these because in many cases, such as the Sanguozhi biographies, there are no internal sources for them. The ruler lists, at this time, are not all links. I hope to one day present you with biographies for all of the rulers (written by myself or others like Jonathan Wu), but for now the basic ruler information provided will do.
