Han Xin (died 196 BC) was a military general who served Liu Bang (Emperor Gaozu of Han) during the Chu–Han Contention and contributed greatly to the founding of the Han Dynasty.
Han Xin is best remembered as a brilliant military leader for the strategies and tactics he employed in warfare. In recognition of Han Xin's contributions, Liu Bang conferred the titles of "King of Qi" on him in 203 BC and "King of Chu" in the following year.
However, Liu Bang feared Han Xin's growing influence and gradually reduced his authority. In 196 BC, Han Xin was accused of participating in a rebellion and lured into a trap and executed on Empress Lv Zhi's orders.
