Since 2010, Laszlo Montgomery has presented The China History Podcast, bringing you the greatest hits from ancient and modern Chinese History. 

Oct 20, 2013

In this episode, we explore the life and times of the historical and cultural icon Zhuge Liang (181-234 AD). He’s a very good example of a well-known name from Chinese history that many have heard of but aren’t quite sure why.

Zhuge Liang is mostly remembered for his cleverness and many consider him right up there with Sunzi (Sun Tzu) as far as the works of strategy and military science he left behind.  He was also a statesman and inventor.

He's also immortalized in the Luo Guanzhong novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms"
