Chen Tai (died 260),courtesy nameXuanbo, was a military general and politician of the state of Cao Wei during the Three Kingdoms period. He was the son of Chen Qun and a maternal grandson of Xun Yu.[b] Chen Tai was very knowledgeable in the art of war, and so led his men as if they were his own children. When the regent Sima Shi began abusing his power, and the emperor Cao Mao died under very suspicious circumstances, Chen Tai expressed his deep loyalty to Wei by honouring their deaths through wearing a mourning dress to the court. Chen Tai was also the minister of letters of Wei.
^Chen Tai's biography in the Sanguozhi mentioned that he died in the 1st year of the Jingyuan era (260-264) in Cao Huan's reign.
^Xun Yi's biography in the Jin Shu mentioned that Xun Yi was a younger brother-in-law of Chen Qun and the Jin Ji (晉紀) by Gan Bao mentioned that Chen Tai was Xun Yi's maternal nephew. Chen Tai was Chen Qun's son. By deductive reasoning, Chen Qun must have married a daughter of Xun Yu and their son was Chen Tai.
