Son of Tang of Shang
In the Records of the Grand Historian, he was listed by Sima Qian as the second Shang king, succeeding his father Tang (Chinese: 汤), following the earlier death of his elder brother Tai Ding (Chinese: 太丁). He was enthroned in the year of Yihai (Chinese: 乙亥), with Yi Yin (Chinese: 伊尹) as his prime minister and Bo (Chinese: 亳) as his capital.
Oracle script inscriptions, on bones unearthed at Yinxu, alternatively record that he was the fourth Shang king, the second son of Da Ding, given the posthumous name "Bu Bing" (Chinese:卜丙), and succeeded by Da Geng.
