The Kingdom of Eastern Wu is located in the southeast of China, ruling over Jiang Dong, Eastern Jing, and the Wu Territory. First ruled live by Sun Quan, the nation fought against Shu and Wei until the latter's successor state Jin conquered Wu in 280.
Sun Jian's ForcesEdit
Sun Jian, Governor of Changsha, founded his own forces in 185 with the Liang Province Rebellion and then his own home base in 187 with Ou Xing's Rebellion. After crushing these two rebellions, Sun Jian became a trusted Han official and gained power in the Imperial Court. When the Ten Eunuchs came to power, he took part in the campaign to destroy them. After the deaths of all the eunuchs, Sun Jian served in the Alliance against Dong Zhuo. He became fast enemies with Yuan Shu when in 190, at the Battle of Si Shui Gate, he refused to give Sun Jian's starving troops supplies. Only the discovery of a back road to the enemy supply depot saved their skins. Soon, Sun Jian won the Battle of Da Gu against Lu Bu and his forces, followed by the Battle of Hu Lao Gate. Dong Zhuo was overthrown after this uprising, but the violence continued. Sun Jian found the Wu Territory seized by Liu Yong, Jiang Dong stolen by Liu Xun, and Jing Province stolen by Liu Biao. His campaign against Liu Biao failed and he was killed by enemy archers.
Sun Ce's ForcesEdit
Sun Ce, Sun Jian's son, took charge of the Sun family forces. Ce quickly advanced on the Wu territory and retook it, gaining an officer in Taishi Ci. Shortly afterwards, Sun Ce seized back Jiang Dong from Liu Xun. Having reconquered almost all of his previous land, Sun Ce formed an alliance against Yuan Shu. At the Battle of Shou Chun, Liu Bei and Cao Cao aided Sun Ce in the defeat of Yuan Shu and the destruction of the Zhou Dynasty. Sun Ce focused back on gaining lands. He invaded Cao Cao at Xu Chang trying to free Emperor Xian from Cao's captivity, but was killed by archers that were followers of Xu Gong.
Sun Quan's ForcesEdit
Sun Quan was Sun Ce's younger brother. As a general, he served in his brother's campaigns and then became ruler with his brother's death. However, Zhou Yu was the real brains of the kingdom. In 203, the armies of Sun Quan invaded Jing Province and defeated Huang Zu at the Battle of Xia Kou. Then in 208, Huang was killed at the Battle of Jiang Xia, where Gan Ning defected to Sun Quan. Finding momentum, Zhou allied with Liu Bei against Cao Cao to face them at Chi Bi. Huang Gai, one of Sun's naval commanders, orchestrated a fire attack that burnt Cao Cao's army up. Following that, Zhou Yu seized Nan Territory but was mortally wounded by an arrow. However, Sun Shang Xiang, Sun Quan's sister, married Liu Bei to consolidate an alliance. Negotiations broke down when Sun Quan seized Jing from Shu, but Shangxiang remained loyal to Liu. Sun Quan fought against Liu Bei at Fan Castle to regain all of Jing Province, and killed Guan Yu. However, this would only lead to the Battle of Yi Ling, where a fire attack saved the day and drove out Liu Bei's Army. After this victory, the Kingdom of Wu was formed (222).
Sun Quan defeated Cao Pi's invasion at Dong Kou and then launched his own campaign at Shi Ting in 228. Shortly after, Sun Quan's forces were annihilated at He Fei Castle in 234. Sun Quan's Wu was becoming weaker and soon in 250 their forces aided Wang Ling in a rebellion against Wei. For several years Wu intervened in the wars against Wei, but in 280 Wu was conquered by Jin.
