Occupation General

Zhang Bu (died 264) was a military general of Eastern Wu during the Three Kingdoms period of China. In 258, he and another general, Ding Feng, overthrew the regent Sun Chen in a coup and restored power to the emperor Sun Liang. In 264, after the death of Sun Liang's successor Sun Xiu, he supported Sun Hao to be the new emperor. However, shortly after Sun Hao's enthronement, Zhang Bu was exiled by the emperor for criticising his brutality. Sun Hao later sent his men to murder Zhang Bu while he was on his way to exile in Guangzhou.
