Yuding Zhenren

In some Daoist records, Yuding Zhenren was said to one of the twelve disciples of Yuanshi Tianzun, who is the co-founder of Branch Chan of Taoism. Yuding ranked the second of the Twelve Golden Xian (十二金仙) along with Yuanshi Tianzun's other eleven students. During the war between the Zhou and Shang armies, he fought alongside the Zhou army with the other Twelve Golden Xian, helping to overthrow the Shang Dynasty.[4][5]
