Yuan Shang was the son of Yuan Shao and brother to Yuan Tan and Yuan Xi. When his father died, he led his armies against Yuan Tan and Cao Cao and was killed by Gongsun Kang.


Yuan Shang was favored as Yuan Shao's successor because of his good looks, but many of Yuan Shao's advisors favored Tan over him. So civil war broke out and Yuan Shang sent Yuan Tan fleeing for You Province with Yuan Xi. Meanwhile, Yuan Shang fled to the Wuhuan tribes led by Tadun and Shamoke, but was defeated at White Wolf Mountain. He and Yuan Xi fled to Gongsun Kang, who had them executed to appease Cao Cao.
