Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a biographical list of Qin, Han and Xin Periods. Material for the history of Qin, Han and Xin is largely contained within the standard histories Shi ji and Han shu, but Later Han produced a great number of ancillary writings, such as family and local histories, many of which have survived in whole or in part, while the vast majority of stele from the Han period were composed and carved in the second century AD. Entries are arranged in alphabetical order of the transcription of the name; where the transcription is the same, they are listed in approximately chronological order. The commandery unit identified at the head of an entry is the person's formal place of registration. Some names of commanderies or kingdoms changed during the course of the dynasty.

Keywords: Han period; Qin
