Historic (Confirmed)

Liang Shao held rank as Court Architect during the Han dynasty. During the struggle between Li Jue and Guo Si, Liang Shao was taken hostage. Later on, he accompanied the Emperor in escaping from Chang’an. Liang Shao continued to serve the Han when Cao Cao took over. Despite not being a eunuch, Liang Shao was allowed to take charge of the Empress’ residence in Xu. Yuan Shao hated Liang Shao and beseeched Cao Cao to have him killed. However, Cao Cao would not oblige. Presumably, Liang Shao continued serving until his eventual death.
