Peking Opera Mask—Jiang Wei

  • Jiang Wei (202 – 264) was a military general and later regent of Shu Han during the Three Kingdoms era of China. He was originally a Cao Wei middle-level military officer, but due to the fact that his mother was captured by Shu Han strategist Zhuge Liang, Jiang Wei joined him on Zhuge’s first Northern Expedition against Cao Wei in 228. Zhuge Liang immediately made him an army commander due to his military capability and resourcefulness. He eventually rose through the ranks during the regencies of Zhuge Liang and of Zhuge Liang’s successors Jiang Wan and Fei Yi to eventually become Fei Yi’s chief assistant. After Fei Yi’s death in 253, he succeeded to Fei Yi’s position, but did not have the power that Fei Yi had, as he apparently became in charge largely only of military matters — and therefore was only arguably a regent.
  • Reviving Zhuge Liang’s campaigns against Cao Wei (which Jiang Wan and Fei Yi had largely abandoned), Jiang Wei made a number of incursions against Wei — one in coordination with Eastern Wu’s regent Zhuge Ke (Zhuge Liang’s nephew) — but each had to be abandoned due to the inadequate food supplies or due to battlefield losses, and these campaigns greatly drained Shu Han’s resources. In 263, Wei, led by Deng Ai and Zhong Hui, conquered Shu Han. Jiang Wei tried to restore the kingdom by persuading Zhong Hui to declare a rebellion against the de facto Cao Wei ruler Sima Zhao, Zhong Hui agreed but after he did so, Zhong’s own soldiers rebelled against him and Jiang Wei and Zhong Hui were killed in battle.
