17th year of Zheng’s reign(230BC), governor Teng was tasked to attack the state of Han, crushing the Han army and capturing the king of Han. The lands of Han were absorbed into Qin and was renamed Ying Chuan county.

1 year later, he was sent to Southern county, the lands that belonged to Chu but was captured by Bai Qi decades ago in the Battle of Yan and Yin. He governed the place well and implemented laws that benefited the people there. He became a well respected official soon after. Because of him, the Southern county prospered and later became the base for Wang Jian’s invasion Chu in 224BC.

In 221 BC, after the unification of China, Teng was appointed the governor of the capital.


Interesting Stuff

Teng, having a single word as his name and no surname whatsoever, might sound like a fictitious character the author created at first. However, he might be Governor Teng as said above even though Teng in the manga is more of a general than a governor. We shall see who will invade and destroy Han in the future to confirm this. There was also no records on how he is related to Wang Yi so we might never know if he is a loyal vice general of the Wang Yi army in history.
