According to the legend, Shaodian (Chinese: 少典) (born 2679 BC) was the father of Huangdi (黄帝), the Yellow Emperor. His own father was Lord Youxiong (有熊), whilst Shaodian's wife was Fu Pao (有蟜). Fu Pao later gave birth to both Huangdi and Yandi.
- "Although Shaodian preceded the Yellow and Yan emperors, he was not their father."
