- ↑ The commandery Badong was created by Cao Cao in 215 (divided from Ba commandery).
- ↑ The commandery Baxi was created by Cao Cao in 215 (divided from Ba commandery).
- ↑ Though Yuan Shao probably had not acted as Grand Administrator of Bohai for some time, it was not until he "officially" left office as Grand Administrator in 191, when he passed it down to Gongsun Fan.
- ↑ As Taishi Ci took this title himself, instead of being appointed as such, he was thus not officially a Grand Administrator.
- ↑ Sun Yi was killed in 204.
- ↑ Pei Qian succeeded the previous Grand Administrator, whose name is not mentioned in historical sources.
- ↑ Qiao Mao was killed in 190.
- ↑ It seems Wang Yi may not have been Grand Administrator the entire time between 195-205, because in 201 Guo Yuan was made Grand Administrator of Hedong. It is unclear when he left office, but in 205 we read that Du Ji replaced Wang Yi, not Guo Yuan, so Wang Yi had been re-appointed as Grand Administrator of Hedong between 201 and 205.

- ↑ Shi Yi was recommended by Shi Xie.
- ↑ Ju Jun recieved the title Grand Administrator of Hongnong posthumously.

- ↑ Shi Yi was recommended by Shi Xie.
- ↑ Qin Xie was Chu Gong's successor.
- ↑ The commandery Poyang was created by Sun Quan in 210. At its creation a Grand Administrator was appointed, but his name is not mentioned.
- ↑ Though appointed in the same year as the commandery was created, Bu Zhi was actually not the first Grand Administrator of Poyang. The first Grand Administrator is not mentioned by name.
- ↑ In 184 Zhao Qian was defeated by a band of Yellow Turbans at Shaolin county. It is not stated if he returned to his post after the Yellow Turbans were quelled.
- ↑ Yang Hong was Fa Zheng's successor.
- ↑ Sheng Xian was succeeded by Xu Gong.
- ↑ Xu Gong was deposed by Zhu Zhi in 195.
- ↑ The commandery Xindu was created by Sun Quan in 208. At its creation He Qi was appointed its first Grand Administrator.

- ↑ 28.0 28.1 In 195 the commandery Yuzhang had two Grand Administrators, one appointed Liu Yao, the other appointed by his rival Yuan Shu. Both warlords claimed the territory of Yuzhang, hence they both appointed a Grand Administrator for its commandery.
- ↑ In 199 a part of Yuzhang was divided by Sun Ce to form the commandery Luling. Sun Ben became Grand Administrator of Yuzhang after this dividement.
