Zhou Xun (Three Kingdoms)

Zhou Xun 周迅; pinyin; Was a commander Commander Of Wu in China in the 2nd century CE, but much like his father did not live long to see old age as he died in his mid 20s. Although commonly mistaken with Zhou Xin, they have nothing in common. Zhou Xun has not thoroughly been recorded in history, the more famous Zhou Yu was however his father and he is known from sources related to him.

Zhou Xun originally served Wu, trying to follow in his father's name he was devoted to his studies, but was also quite a mean tyrannical man.

Zhou Xun's family was his father Zhou Yu, his mother (possibly) Xiao Qiao, brother Zhou Yin, sister Zhou Ying. Was married to Sun Quan's eldest daughter Sun Dahu (Princess Quan). He died suddenly and was succeeded by his younger brother.
