Encyclopedia > Huang Zhong

Huang Zhong (黄忠; style name: Hansheng 汉升) (? - 220), was born Nanyang (in modern day Henan province). During the civil war at the end of the Han Dynasty, Huang was commanded the garrison at Changsha under warlord Liu Biao and subsequently Han Xuan. He later joined Liu Bei and took part in Liu's conquest of Yizhou (modern day Sichuan province). In 219, Huang Zhong defeated Cao Cao's army in Hanzhong (modern day Hanzhong, Shaanxi province) and slew Wei's famous general Xiahou Yuan at the Battle of Mt. Dingjun. For this achievement, Huang became one of the "Five Tiger Generals" of the kingdom of Shu.

In novel Romance of Three Kingdoms, Huang Zhong was portrayed as an aged but extremely talented warrior. He was (according to legend) capable of hitting a target 100 out of 100 times. He was also able to eat several pounds of meat and fire arrows from powerful compound bows at the age of 70. He would die, due to his arrow wounds, in the midst of Liu Bei's campaign against Wu to avenge the death of Guan Yu.
