The Han Dynasty survived for 426 years. By 220 A.D. China evolved into the Three Kingdoms period, in tripartite balance of the Wei Kingdom, the Shu Kingdom and the Wu Kingdom (220-280). The three most prominent political personages in this period were Cao, Zhuge Liang and Sun Quan. Cao was the virtual founder of the Wei Kingdom.
The Wei Kingdom dominated over the other two Kingdoms by promoting capable and diligent ministers and stationing troops in the frontiers.
Zhuge Liang served as the prime minister of the Shu Kingdom and has long been esteemed as the symbol of ancient Chinese wisdom.
