Legacy of the Three Kingdoms
The Three Kingdoms period was one of unparalleled bloodshed and turmoil in Chinese history, as the three states in question, the Wei (魏), Shu (蜀) and Wu (吴), waged decades-long war for control of China.
Unsurprisingly, the Three Kingdom period has left a lasting mark on Chinese language and culture, including a number of four-character idioms based on famous stories from the conflict.
The Three Kingdoms period is probably the most read about historical period in China and East Asia, as the historical events manifested in classic literature as well as popular culture. Many people are introduced to this history by one of the four great classics, “Romance of the Three Kingdoms(三国演义),” a fictional work written by Luo Guanzhong (罗贯中) in the Ming Dynasty (1368 A.D.-1644 A.D.), more than a thousand years after the events it relates to.
