Wang Rong (234–305), courtesy name Junchong, was an official and scholar of the Jin dynasty of China. He was also one of the Seven Sages of the Bamboo Grove.

Life[edit]

Wang Rong served under the Jin dynasty as a military general and participated in the conquest of the Jin dynasty's rival state, Eastern Wu in 280. During the campaign, he led his troops as far as to that of Wuchang (武昌; present day Ezhou, Hubei). Following this, Wang Rong's army merged with Wang Jun's and they advanced towards the Wu capital, Jianye.
