Huangfu Song

Huangfu Song (died 195), courtesy name Yizhen, was a military general who lived during the Eastern Han dynasty of China. He is best known for helping to suppress the Yellow Turban Rebellion and Liang Province Rebellion. He was one of three imperial commanders when the Yellow Turban Rebellion broke out, along with Zhu Jun and Lu Zhi. He was known to be a modest and generous person; he gave most of his credit in suppressing the rebellion to Zhu Jun and pleaded for Lu Zhi to be pardoned when the latter was wrongly accused of a crime that he had not committed.
