Gao Shun is one of the most underrated generals in the Sanguo era, IMO.


Sorry, but how does this have to do with the execution of Lu Bu? Gao Shun may be underrated, but I would say Cao Hong is more underrated.

It depends. For ordinary civilians and ministers, execution by poison or strangulation was considered a privilege, even though it could be more agonizing, because it preserved the body intact for the netherworld. The Chinese were very literal about the state of the body at death being that which the spirit took on as a ghost or in the underworld, so mutilation of the body was considered a very severe form of punishment. But for military men, it was considered dishonourable to fear decapitation. See, for example, Yan Yan's retort to Zhang Fei that his land had headless generals but no surrendered generals. Thus it is possible that Lu Bu was strangled as a form of insult.

Anyway, Lu Bu died with his head on but didn't keep it on for much longer. His head was cut off after death and displayed in public at Xuchang with those of Chen Gong and Gao Shun, according to the Sanguo Zhi.


so he was humiliated as well as killed (ha ha) poor Lu Bu

Lu Bu? somebody betray him, then Cao Cao executed him. To get rid of Lu Bu, Liu Bei provoke Cao Cao and finally Lu Bu died... :cry^:

He listened when Chen Gong told him not to surrender, that didn't go too well, and on the whole I have not been too impressed by Gong's advice. His first military advice to attack Cao Cao's troops while they where tired might have worked but then again, Lu Bu's army was in a two year losing streak so maybe not. The next piece of advice was to attack Cao Cao's supplies while he and Gao Shun held the city but Lu Bu's wife saw flaws in that, namely that Gong and Gao Shun would probably fall out.

I think Lu Bu had already lost, all Gong's advice could have done was brought more time.

This was actually a question by Zhen Ji PM to me.

As I don't know the answer, I think it's best to leave this to our members to answer the question.

How did Lu Bu die? Was he killed or die of sickness? Help pls


For shame general, Jk. I thought he was pulled apart by horses with the order coming from Cao Cao. From what I see in the forum however is he was strangled or beheaded. Can anyone give resources besides the Romance?

It's true, if I am correct, LuBu was hanged by CaoCao because LuiBei tiped CaoCao to do it. Lui Bei said,"don't you remember DongZhuo and DingJianYang?"(DingJianYang as in DingYuan)

Two sites to find SGZ ie the bio's of the officers: kongming.net
3kingdoms.net

The ZZTJ can be found here:ZZTJ

Lu Bu's history bio is here:Lu Bu's bio It doesn't mention that he surrendered whereas the ZZTJ does so worth looking at Established Peace 1 if you get the time

It's true, if I am correct, LuBu was hanged by CaoCao because LuiBei tiped CaoCao to do it. Lui Bei said,"don't you remember DongZhuo and DingJianYang?"(DingJianYang as in DingYuan)


I think he was strangled rather the hanged but otherwise that is correct.

Lv bu was tied by Cao Cao. At that time, Lu bu speak to Cao Cao :" If i capitulate to you, you control the footman, and i command cavalry-------- we will be the strongest in the World, then who can fight with us. " Cao Cao was puzzled, Because Lu bu is real a genius to command the cavelry and Cao Cao always thought the talent was the most important to reach his career. So Cao Cao ask LIu bei. Lu Bu believe Liu bei was a kind man, and Lu bu has done a favor to Liu bei before, so he thought Liu Bei will help him. But finally, Liu Bei Speak to Cao : " Cao , Lu Bu was the underling of Ding Yuan first, but he kill Ding yuan , and capitulate to Dong Zhuo. Then he kill Dong zhuo. If you receive him, you will be killed soon. " So finally, Lu bu was killed by Cao Cao.

Liu Bei was a untruthful man, which i always insist on.
