BiographyEdit

There is little historical information on Guan Ping (not even his style name is recorded). In Record of the Three Kingdoms the Book of Shu 6 he is mentioned during the battle for Jing Province in 219. Guan Yu was never impressed by Sun Quan's commander Lu Su 魯肅, and never expected any threat from his successor Lü Meng 呂蒙. However, during the battle for Jing province the ill Lü Meng brought an army up the Yangzi river to attack Guan Yu's rear. At that time Guan Yu had already been driven back by Cao Ren 曹仁 at Xiangyang, thus Guan Yu's forces were now cut off at Nan commandery. Shortly after they were captured by Lü Meng's forces and killed.[1][2]

In neither the Book of Shu, nor the Book of Wu, Lü Meng is mentioned as the one who executed the Guan's, though it does seem likely he was somehow involved in the execution.
