Wang Fang
Traditional Chinese 王方
Simplified Chinese 王方

Wang Fang was a military officer serving under the warlord Dong Zhuo during the late Han Dynasty period of Chinese history. After Dong's death, he made a secret pact with Dong's loyalists who had advanced on Chang'an, opening the gates for them to enter. He later challenged Ma Chao, who had come out to engage the loyalists, but was slain in the duel against him.
