"During this time, his ministers worked to weaken the State of Yue internally through bribes and diplomatic intrigue."[edit]

Are you sure it's the State of Yue and not Wu? It wouldn't make sense for his own ministers, who he appointed, to weaken their own state. This is why I changed the Yue, to Wu. --141.213.196.250 06:12, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

According to the TV series, which I finished viewing yesterday (May 3rd) on PCNE (a very enjoyable series, I might add), you might be correct, though the TV series glossed over this bit somewhat. It seemed clear, according to the fictional account, that Bo Pi (the rather scheming minister of Wu) did have contact and was flattered by people from Yue at this time. Although I viewed this with Chinese relatives who are familar with the history of this period, and who said the TV series was roughly correct at this point, it would be good to get some verifiable sources for this (a TV drama really doesn't count.)  DDStretch  (talk) 07:52, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

Rewrite[edit]

I've tidied up the article a bit and tried to make it read better. I hope people don't mind.  DDStretch  (talk) 07:52, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
