Huangfu Song

Huangfu Song
Traditional Chinese 皇甫嵩
Simplified Chinese 皇甫嵩

Huangfu Song (died 195), courtesy name Yizhen (義真), was a military general of the late Han Dynasty period of Chinese history. He is best known for helping to suppress the Yellow Turban Rebellion and Liang Province Rebellion. He was one of three imperial commanders when the Yellow Turban Rebellion broke out, along with Zhu Jun and Lu Zhi. He was known to be a modest and generous person, he gave most of his credit in suppressing the rebellion to Zhu Jun and pleaded for Lu Zhi to be pardoned when the latter is wrongly accused for a crime he did not commit. Huangfu retired after the rebellion ended; however after the death of Dong Zhuo, he was called back to the court and appointed Grand Commandant—a post he assumed until his death.
