Chapter Summary

Though Cao Cao renounced some fiefs, his military success and his dominance of the government meant that he was encouraged and expected to receive special recognition. The initiator was Dong Zhao, who had earlier served as Cao Caos agent at the imperial court as it returned to Luoyang in 196, and aided him to bring the emperor under his control at Xu city. Duke of Wei, Imperial Chancellor, Governor of extended Ji province and holder of the Nine Distinctions and other privileges. With the death of Cao Chong, as Cao Cao remarked, the natural candidate to succeed him was Cao Pi, eldest son by his principal consort the Lady Bian. In the winter of 210 Cao Cao completed the Bronze Bird Terrace, first of the three by which he enhanced his capital at Ye city.
