  1. ^ a b Liu Ye's biography in Record of the Three Kingdoms mentioned that he served in office for two years after his appointment in the 6th year of the Taihe era (227-233) in Cao Rui's reign before his death. (太和六年, ... 在位二年遜位, ... 薨。謚曰景侯。) Therefore, it is deduced that he died in 234, which corresponds to the 2nd year of the Qinglong era (233-237) in Cao Rui's reign.
