Sun Jian was a general of the Han Dynasty and father of Sun Ce, Sun Quan, and Sun Shang Xiang. He was killed at the Battle of Xiang Yang by archers.


Sun Jian raised his own army to fight in the Yellow Turban Rebellion. As its commander, he defeated several Yellow Turban armies until the end of the war. After the long rebellion, Sun Jian crushed a rebellion in Liang Province. Then, he switched to defeating Ou Xing in Jing Province. However, he supplanted the Ten Eunuchs and defeated their rebellion against Emperor Shao. Following this string of victories, Sun Jian joined the Alliance against Dong Zhuo. He commanded the Allied vanguard and defeated Lu Bu at the Battle of Da Gu. His invasion was completed when Dong Zhuo was beaten at Hulao Pass. After this long war, Sun Jian set out to conquer Jing Province yet again, this time from Liu Biao. He almost won when he was struck with three arrows.
