Revision as of 22:37, 5 October 2014 by LordAmeth (talk | contribs)

The Kingdom of Wei, or Cao Wei, was one of the three most prominent states in China during China's Three Kingdoms Period. It is of particular significance to Japanese history as the official dynastic History of Wei (C: Wei zhi) contains some of the earliest written descriptions of the land and people of Wa (i.e., Japan), and is among the chief sources mentioning & describing the legendary shamaness/queen Himiko.
