Lu Zhi (159–192),[1] courtesy name Zigan, was a general, official, and scholar of China's Eastern Han dynasty. According to the records of the Three kingdoms, he was the mentor of Liu Bei.

Life[edit]

Lu Zhi was born in Zhuo Commandery (涿, Zhuōjùn; present-day Zhuozhou, Hebei) in AD 159.[1] He studied under Ma Rong and Zheng Xuan was one of his classmates.[2]

He was among the most preëminent scholars of the area, known for his study of texts on Chinese rituals and his assistance in compiling the History of the Eastern Han (t , s , Dōngguān Hànjì).[1] His students included Gao You, later a scholarly commentator on Chinese classics;[1] Liu Bei, later the king of Shu during the Three Kingdoms;[3] his relative Liu Deran;[3] and Gongsun Zan, later a regional warlord.[3] While in the service of the Han government, Lu Zhi led imperial forces to attack the Yellow Turban rebels in 184 but was removed from command after a eunuch Zuo Feng (左豐) made false accusations against him. Lu Zhi then later served as a Master of Writing and warned against Dong Zhuo's sudden displacement of Emperor Shao.

Family[edit]

Lu Zhi's son, Lu Yu, later served in the state of Cao Wei during the Three Kingdoms period.
