Romance of the Three Kingdoms


Romance of the Three Kingdoms
三国演义sān guó yǎn yì


Guan Yu 关羽 Guān Yǔ played a significant role in the civil war that led to the collapse of the Han Dynasty and the establishment of the Kingdom of Shu, of which Liu Bei was the first emperor.
He is one of the best known Chinese historical figures throughout East Asia. Guan Yu's true life stories have largely given way to fictionalized ones, mostly found in the historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms 三国演义 sān guó yǎn yì, in which his deeds and moral qualities have been treated with great interest or importance.

Guan Yu was deified and is still being worshipped by Chinese people today, especially in southern China. He is respected as the epitome of loyalty and righteousness.
Here is a video about the novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms (with chinese subtitles) for those of you who are interested to know more about it. Enjoy!
