After his father's death, Shi was granted position of Regent-Marshal, authorization to supervise the Seceretariat and was made superior general of the Flying Cavalry. His mistreatment of the emperor earned him the scorn and contempt of many loyal followers of the Wei emperors.

Sima Zhao at AllExperts (1716 words)
Sima Zhao was born in 211, as the second-born son of Sima Yi and his wife Lady Zhang Chunhua (張春華), younger only to Sima Shi.
In 254, while Sima Zhao was at the capital Luoyang, advisors to the emperor Cao Fang suggested that the emperor surprise Sima Zhao and kill him to seize his troops, and then use those troops against Sima Shi.
Sima Zhao then summoned Cao Huang (曹ç'œ, whose name was later changed to Cao Huan), the Duke of Changdaoxiang and a grandson of Cao Cao to the capital to become the emperor; by now, Empress Dowager Guo was powerless to speak further.
