Xiang Yu, a native of Xia Xiang, was a brilliant scholar who was also a strong man who could lift a ding (a heavy three-legged cooking pot). At a young age, Xiang Yu joined the rebellion forces started by his uncle Xiang Liang, defeating the Qin army nine times in a role and finally toppled the Qin Dynasty. Xiang Yu crowned himself as Xi Chu BaWang (the Dominating King of the West). Xiang then proceeded to fight against Liu Bang to unite China. Drawing early victories, Xiang was ever more proud of himself. However he soon suffered losses at Gai Xia and eventually escaped to the Wu Jiang river where he was surrounded and Xiang took his own life. A Xiang Yu temple was erected at the bank of the Wu Jiang river to commemorate him.
