Huangfu Song


Huangfu Song

Chinese
t=皇甫嵩
s=皇甫嵩

Huangfu Song (died 195) was a general during the late Han Dynasty, best remembered for helping put down the Yellow Turban Rebellion. He was one of three imperial commanders when the rebellion broke out, along with Zhu Jun and Lu Zhi. He was known to be a modest and generous person, he gave many of his credits in taking down the rebellion to Zhu Jun and pleaded for the pardon of Lu Zhi when the latter is wrongly accused for a crime he didn't commit. ['Romance of the Three Kingdoms' by Luo Guanzhong -- Chapter 3] Huangfu Song retired after the rebellion's end; however after the death of Dong Zhuo, he was called back to the court and appointed grand commissioner -- a post he assumed until his death. He was involved in Wang Yun's plot of getting rid of Dong Zhou, and led the Han forces to capture Dong's family members and remnants in the capital. ['Romance of the Three Kingdoms' by Luo Guanzhong -- Chapter 7]
