XIANG YU: (From 232, state of Chu, China to 202 BCE, Anhui province) Born to Hạ Tượng, of Cối kê (China) named Tịch, capable of lifting an one-thousand pound caudron. At the late Qin period where central government was no longer able to administer its domestic and foreign affairs, the Chu State has gone from strength to strength, especially with Hang Wu as a generalissimo. However, in the Qin-destroying campaign, with his murderous impulse, Hạng Vũ (Xiang Yu) gradualy lost his popular support, therefore his Army entered Bá Trượng (Hàm Dương, Xian Yang) after Lưu Bang (Liu Bang). Hạng thought he was too strong to keep the promise of Chu State's King, (who entered Hàm Dương first would be appointed as King by Chu's King), thus even though he came later than Lưu Bang, he declared himself West Chu's King, and pushed Lưu Bang into Ba Thục, an area deemed hard to travel and develop. However, thanks to the knowledge of using this geographical conditions, Lưu Bang has converted it to a solid stronghold to regain his land from Hạng Yu who must fight with Lưu Bang-led Han Army for a protracted six years, during which he must several times be confounded by Hàn Tín (Han Xin) with stratagems and guilefulness, leading to his defeat and suicide at O Giang port.
