Oh god, you use the pathetic wades-giles format forChinese names From the way that sounds, that's a rather old and Western history book about the Three Kingdoms period of China. What is Wu Shu? There was the state of Eastern Wu, and Shu Han during the Three Kingdoms period. Neither of them had anyone called "Hou Chou" as their ruler because: 1. The family name of Shu Han was Liu while the family name of Wu was Sun so Hou can't possibly be the surname. 2. Hou Chou isn't a reign name for any of the Eastern Wu or Shu Han rulers. And that is why, instead of using an antiquated Western source for CHINESE history, please bother to check your old information... Anything that uses "Minor Han" for Shu Han has serious problems. The effectiveness of the primitive gunpowder weapons that Shu Han would be capable of producing would not be equal to the effectiveness of the repeating crossbows already in use. And really, cannons already? Really, do you rather like insulting China and all Chinese people with your blatant eurocentric attitude and casual condescending nature towards the most ancient civilization in the world? Just casually dismissing Chinese recorded history in favor of a history written by an outsider who isn't even able to get names right?
