A legendary historical figure in the Three Kingdom period (220-280), Zhuge Liang (181-234) is recognized as the most accomplished and admired military strategist of his era, first as the chancellor to Emperor Liu Bei of the state of Shu and later as the regent of the Kingdom. As a recognition of his contributions to Shu, Zhuge Liang was granted by the emperor the title of “Wuxiang Hou” (Marquis Wuxiang) in his lifetime. After his death, a memorial temple by the name of Wuhou Shrine was built in the city of Chengdu, the capital of Shu, to honor him. The shrine is one of Chengdu’s major attractions and houses numerous statues to Emperor Liu Bei, Zhuge Liang and other generals and officials of the Shu Kingdom. The Wuhou Shrine was turned into a full-scale museum in 1984, serving as a major Three Kingdom heritage site and research center. On March 26, the Renwen Society presents a lecture by Mr. Li Zhi, Chief Docent of the Wuhou Shrine Museum, who will relate to the audience stories of Zhuge Liang and the famed shrine. In his capacity as the Chief Docent of the museum, Mr. Li has received many awards and appeared on many feature programs on TV. In 2020, he was named one of “The Top Ten Narrators of National Treasures of China”. Mr. Li will be delivering the lecture from within the Wuhou Shrine Museum.
