Another part of the Shi Ji annals written by the Han historian Shima Qian a century before the time of Jesus. Shima Qian referred to ancient sources in his writings, that are not extant anymore. This chapter is about Yu the Great – Da Yu – whose father Gun failed to control the post Flood swelling lakes and rivers, and paid for it with his life! He was slain by ZhuRong
Yu his son took over the job, not just to save his own life, but most likely to save his family’s honour and reputation. Yu was known for his unswerving fealty to the emperor Shun that compelled him to finish the job, not even considering to return to his wife and children, even though he passed by his home in the course of his labours. For his faithfulness the Emperor chose him as his successor and Yu became the founder of he Xia dynasty.
Yu of Xia was styled Wenming. Yu’s father was Gun, whose father was the Emperor Zhuanxu, whose father was Changyi, whose father was Huangdi; so Yu was Huangdi’s great-great-grandson, and Zhuanxu’s grandson. Yu’s great-grandfather Changyi and his father Gun were both unable to sit on the Imperial throne, being simply officials. (see our diagram below)
