Wei (魏), also known as Cao Wei (曹魏), is one of the three influential kingdoms in the Dynasty Warriors, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Dynasty Tactics series, and Kessen II. In Dynasty Warriors, the country is symbolized by the color blue and a Chinese phoenix. In Kessen II, their army is symbolized by the color red.

The Kingdom of Wei was created by Cao Cao. He was given the title Duke of Wei in 213 AD. His power continued to grow until, in 216 AD, Cao Cao was crowned King of Wei. In 220 AD Cao Cao passed away and left his holding to his son Cao Pi, who, in turn, disposed of the young Han Emperor and created the Wei Dynasty. Over the years the Sima family slowly gained more and more control of the Wei Dynasty. Eventually, Sima Yan, the grandson of Sima Yi, took over and created the Jin Dynasty in 265 AD.

Other FiguresEdit

  • Cao Teng - Cao Cao's grandfather, style name was Jixing. A eunuch who served four generations of emperors of the Han, he didn't heavily judge people and was well liked for his accepting character. Didn't cause a single mistake in his 30 years of service. First served Emperor An. During the appointment of the young Emperor Zhi, he questioned the judgment of placing the child on the throne and shared his uncertainty with Liang Ji. His colleague told him to firmly express what he believed, but Cao Teng took one glance at the child and commended him instead. Cao Teng's actions threw a wrench in Liang Ji's plans and lead to the enthronement of the young heir. Became despised by Liang Wang, the possible heir to the throne who hated eunuchs, and expressed his mutual anger to him. Eventually appointed as the highest rank for an eunuch and died in an unknown date. Posthumously honored by Cao Rui as Gao Huangdi (Emperor Gao) in 229.
  • Cao Song - Cao Cao's father, originally born within the Xiahou family and was Xiahou Dun's uncle (younger brother of the latter's father), style name was Jugao. Adopted by Cao Teng. A modest character of restraint who valued piety, he rose in ranks to be Grand Commandant. Answered draft for the Yellow Turban Rebellion and went with his family to Xuzhou. After distinguishing Cao Cao to lead in his place, Cao Song decided to return home to Yanzhou. According to the Wushu, Tao Qian's subordinate Zhang Kai killed him during the journey. Cao Cao became furious once he heard the news and lead troops to avenge him. Posthumously honored by Cao Pi as Tai Huangdi (Emperor Tai) in 220.
  • Cao De - Cao Song's son, Cao Cao's younger brother. Mentioned in the Book of Wei and Shiyu. Accompanied his father's return back to Yanzhou. Shared the same fate as his father, reportedly being one of the first people killed whilst guarding a gate. His name is a contrast to the Book of the Later Han and Wushu, the former reporting that Cao Song's son was named Cao Ji and the second book making no mention of Cao De's name. It's unknown if his name was misreported or if they are two separate people.
  • Cao Ang - Cao Cao's eldest son, mother was Lady Liu.
  • Cao Shuo - Cao Cao's second son, mother was Lady Liu. Sickly and is suggested to have died when he was young due to his scant mention in records. Posthumously honored by Cao Rui as Shang Wang (Prince Shang) in 229.

  • Cao Chong - Cao Cao's eighth son, style name was Cangshu. A studious hopeful lad, he was very insightful, benevolent, and respected for his age. All the vassals that knew him admired him and held great expectations for his future. His father particularly adored him, some sources claiming more than Cao Pi. Unfortunately, Cao Chong was also born with a frail body and died of illness when he was 13. His death caused Cao Cao to slump into a great depression. The timing of his death was ironic since Zhen Luo was being granted within the family, meaning that both a marriage and funeral ceremony were being held at once. In response Cao Cao said to Cao Pi, "Cangshu's (Cao Chong's) death is a great misfortune to me, but you should rejoice. You are to be my true successor after all." When Cao Pi was made emperor, he remarked that he possibly could have never risen to his current state of power if Cao Chong were still alive.

  • Lady Ding - Cao Cao's wife. Married to her husband soon after Lady Liu's death. Had no children with Cao Cao but became Cao Ang's raising parent. Perhaps due to the shock and grief he experienced from Cao Ang's death, Cao Cao accused her of being too calm about losing one of his children. After venting his frustrations, Cao Cao eventually reflected on his actions and remembered the love he had for Lady Ding. Figuring that she heard his cold-hearted bantering from the village she was left in, he offered to mend their relationship and wanted her to return with him. She refused and both parties separated. After Cao Cao accepted Bianshi, he once again offered for his wife to return to him. Learning about Bian Shi and taking to hating the maiden, she turned him down with spite.
  • Empress Dowager Bian - Cao Cao's famous concubine who gave birth to Cao Pi, Cao Zhang, Cao Zhi, and Cao Xiong. Sometimes known as Bianshi but her given name is not known. Born in modern Lanshan District, Linyi. Originally a singing maiden with a poor background, she was known to be wise and modest with her new found fortune beside Cao Cao. After Cao Cao's death, she was named Empress Dowager by Cao Pi.

Upon hearing of her daughter-in-law's state, Bianshi warmly admired her devotion.

Although invited into his realm as his concubine, she felt unneeded since Cao Cao already had so many beauties surrounding him. However, her looks also enchanted a handsome soldier named Wang To and they both fell in love with one another. Cao Cao eventually apprehended the lovers in anger and had them executed. Later, Cao Cao would apparently regret his actions as he was said to have occasionally mumbled, "What I would give to have switched places with Wang To and die in his stead..."
  • Princess Qinghe - Cao Cao's eldest daughter, Lady Liu's daughter, Cao Pi's older sister. Given name unknown. When deciding which man would be a worthy suitor for her, Cao Cao first considered Ding Yi as he was the offspring of one of his childhood friends. Cao Pi advised against the idea, stating that a man who "had only one eye" (lack of focus) was unworthy of the Cao family. To replace the candidate, he suggested Xiahou Mao, one of Cao Pi's close friends. His father agreed with the idea and the union was made. However, Xiahou Mao soon discovered about the fixed deal and grew to resent his former friend. He was said to have treated his wife seriously rather than with gentile concern, their relationship a sour one. His two younger brothers disapproved of their elder brother's actions and took Princess Qinghe with them to Cao Rui. Xiahou Mao was spared from being charged with serious offenses due to his marriage in the family.

  • Cao Xian - Cao Cao's daughter, royal consort of Emperor Xian. Later known as Queen Consort Xiaoxian Cao.

After Cao Cao had angrily executed Empress Fu Shou for conspiring against him, Cao Jie was escalated to empress to replace her and became known as Empress Xianmu. When Cao Pi abdicated the emperor, he demanded her imperial seal as well. She refused many times, but after several days of persistence, she obeyed. As she did, tears followed down her cheeks as she cried, "Have I been robbed of heaven's fortune?!", which made all observers bow their heads with sympathy. She followed Emperor Xian to Shanyang and was then known as Duchess of Shanyang. She died in 260.
  • Cao Hua - Cao Cao's daughter, royal consort of Emperor Xian.
  • Princess Jinxiang - Cao Cao's daughter, mother was Lady Du. Given name unknown. Married to He Yan, who descended from the Qin family and became one of Cao Cao's stepsons. Princess Jinxiang was known to be broad-minded and wise, which would prove to be a stark contrast to her husband's dark and twisted crimes. After her husband's execution in 249, his son was ordered to join his father. However, his mother pleaded mercy for her son. Fortunately, Sima Yi had long admired her level-headed nature and spared both individuals.

Lost her parents while she was young and lived as a servant. Somehow caught Cao Cao's attention and she was trained to become a lady of the court. During this time, Cao Pi made her his concubine. After Cao Cao's death, Cao Pi married her. As empress, she stressed the importance of self-discipline and the importance of committing good deeds. The Weilue and Hanjin Chunqiu note that Zhen Luo's death in the same year as the marriage had ultimately paved the prosperity of Lady Guo's rise to power. These two records note a tone of suspicion towards her, leading many to believe that Lady Guo manipulated Zhen Luo's reputation in some manner.
  • Lady Li - Cao Pi's concubine, good friend of Empress Zhen. After her friend's death, she was entrusted to take care of Cao Rui. During her friend's funeral, she couldn't bear to see Empress Zhen's body in a casket and covered her face with her hair to avoid seeing the body.

In the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, these generals were featured as Wei's version (and possible inspiration) of the Five Tiger Generals.
