As the mangafox forums seems to be quite unstable at times, I’ve decided to move some of the content I’ve created there for the Kingdom community over here. I will be updating both my thread in mangafox and over here. This page will contain the contents to the original “The Ultimate Facts Thread on Kingdom Characters ” created by me(King Magax) and several other mangafox forum users including SuryaNaga, DarkLordOfKichiku and fullblue. The mangafox links below will be replaced with the wordpress links gradually as i move the content over here. This is just a safety precaution for all the work we’ve put in in case anything major happens over at the mangafox forums. If you are new and have no idea what im talking about regarding all the mangafox stuff, don’t worry and just stick to this page if you are a Kingdom fan and link the content. I will update this page as frequently as i can.
As suggested by SuryaNaga, we are making a thread on historical facts about characters and events in Kingdom. We will be comparing characters and events in the Kingdom manga with what was recorded in the history books(as much as we know). This thread will contain mainly information on characters, both real and fictitious, in Kingdom while we will (hopefully) make another thread on events. This will hopefully answer questions that you guys might have, bust some myths, and increase your overall interest in this manga. Since we are merely history enthusiasts and not a history professor or anything, do feel free to contribute and/or point out any mistakes here. I will be using the character’s pinyin names as I am more familiar with them but their Japanese names will be there under the character’s “Name” section for easy reference.
This thread will be updated periodically as it is impossible to post everything in 1 day due to the huge number of characters that appeared in the story. Only major/semi-major/significant characters will be included in this thread but there will be exceptions to some minor/semi-minor characters who existed in history and will play a significant role in the future of the manga. Most of my information here will be taken from ShiJi(史记), a historical book written by a historian Sima Qian in the Han dynasty(202BC-220AD), recording a 3000+ year history from the times of the legendary Yellow Emperor(黄帝) all the way to the time he finished this book at around 90BC.
For searching, Ctrl+F and enter the name you are searching for. If we’ve done a post on the character, it will appear in the contents of this post. Then click on the link and you will be brought to the post. If you are searching for members of the 6 great generals, the 3 great heavens or the 4 pillars of Ryofui/Lu Bu Wei they are grouped in 1 post with the name of their group(6 great generals/3 great heavens/4 pillars)
DO TAKE NOTE THAT THIS THREAD WILL NO DOUBT CONTAIN SPOILERS TO FUTURE EVENTS OF THE MANGA SO DO NOT READ ANYTHING BEYOND THIS SENTENCE IF YOU DO NOT WANT ANY SPOILERS.

Note: Unlike Westerners, Chinese have their family name before their given name. So for example, Barack Obama would instead be named Obama Barack if he is a Chinese.
