"夫君子之行：靜以修身，儉以養德；非淡泊無以明志，非寧靜無以致遠。" - 諸葛亮
One should seek serenity to cultivate the body, thriftiness to cultivate the morals. If you are not simple and frugal, your ambition will not sparkle. If you are not calm and cool, you will not reach far. - Zhugeliang

I've also drawn a Sima clan family tree before (in pencil!), but it was much more complicated because I included many more members. For example, Sima Yi actually had at least eight sons, and Sima Yan had 17 sons.

I'll convert my Sima family tree into a readable format someday - right now it's just too complex and sketchy.

Someday, there'll be a complete family tree of the Sima imperial house available. Perhaps it will be one of the projects for China History Info.

Son of Sima Zhong:
Sima Yu 遹, who became Crown Prince after his father became Emperor (Sima Zhong's only elder brother, Sima Gui 轨, had died at the age of 1). He was borne by Concubine Xie 谢 shortly after Sima Zhong became Crown Prince. Framed for treason in 299 by Sima Zhong's empress Jia Nanfeng, deposed and imprisoned, and then poisoned. Sima Yu had three sons:
Sima Ban 虨, who died of illness in prison shortly after Sima Yu's deposition.
Sima Zang 臧, who was made Crown Prince after Empress Jia was overthrown in 300 by the Prince of Zhao Sima Lun 伦, and returned to his mother Wang Huifeng (who had been forced to divorce Sima Yu earlier). He was deposed in 301 by Sima Lun, who had deposed Sima Zhong and made himself emperor. Sima Zang was then murdered in prison.
Sima Shang 尚, who was made Crown Prince after Sima Lun's overthrow by the other princes (just 4 months after his usurpation). He died of illness in 302.
Sons of Sima Xia 遐 (who died in 300 at the age of 27):
Sima Zhao 罩, who was made Crown Prince after Sima Shang died. The person behind this was his father's cousin, the Prince of Qi Sima Jiong 冏. It was not very legitimate, because Sima Xia had been adopted over to be the heir of his uncle Sima Zhao 兆, and was technically no longer Sima Yan's son. After Sima Jiong was overthrown by Sima Ying 颖 and Sima Yong 顒, Sima Yong made Sima Ying (who was Sima Yan's 6th son) Crown Prince in 304. Sima Zhao was deposed, and after a failed plot by some military officers to restore him as Crown Prince in 307, he was murdered at the age of 13 and buried as a commoner. By that time, Sima Zhong had been murdered by Sima Yue 越 (Prince of Donghai) and succeeded by his brother Sima Chi 炽, and Sima Yue was in control of the imperial court.
Sima Yue 籥, who became Sima Xia's heir after Sima Zhao's murder. His fate is not recorded.
Sima Quan 銓, who was made Crown Prince by Sima Chi in 308. He was captured by the Xiongnu in the fall of Luoyang in 311, and executed.
Sima Duan 端, who escaped the fall of Luoyang and took refuge with the Jin general Gou Xi 苟晞 who was stationed in the city of Meng 蒙. Gou Xi appointed him as Crown Prince, but soon after, both Gou and Sima Duan were captured by Shi Le 石勒, a general serving the Xiongnu. Gou Xi was executed later on by Shi Le for plotting to rebel against him, while Sima Duan's ultimate fate is unknown.
