This is a Chinese name; the family name is Pang.

Pang Ji[1] (died 202), courtesy name Yuantu (元圖), was a minister serving under the warlord Yuan Shao in the late Eastern Han Dynasty.

Pang was criticized by Cao Cao's advisor Xun Yu as "brave but heedless of other's opinions." Being very bitter towards his rivals, Pang slandered Tian Feng after Yuan Shao's defeat at the Battle of Guandu and caused Tian to commit suicide. Pang later went on to serve under Yuan Shang, Yuan Shao's successor. Since Yuan Shang was the youngest of Yuan Shao's three sons, there was intense sibling rivalry. Yuan Shao's oldest son Yuan Tan was on the verge of rebellion, and Pang and Shen Pei suggested sending a small army to aid Yuan Tan in the defense against Cao Cao's follow-up attacks in order to resolve the tension. Pang went along as an emissary. However Yuan Tan was not pleased with the reinforcements and demanded that Yuan Shang send more troops. He was flatly refused by Shen Pei and he killed Pang in anger.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The name is often mispronounced as Féng Jì since the character 逢 in modern Chinese is pronounced as "Féng", however it was likely that the real surname was 逄, pronounced "Páng", since the two characters look very similar and Páng was a much more common surname
