Abstract

According to the research of Li Kaiyuan, the foundation of the regime in the early Western Han Dynasty was the class named Military Meritocracy, but there were various groups and clans existing in this huge class, and the most influential group was the group of generals. The members of this group were military officers who had merit of attacking cities and seizing territory. Faced with this powerful group, Liu Bang’s imperial power was unable to exercise at will. In order to consolidate his power and maintain the Liu family’s rule of the empire, on the one hand, Liu Bang employed Chen Ping to monitor the generals; on the other hand, he transferred Cao Shen, the leader of the group, from the central government to the province. In addition, Liu Bang also took Zhou Bo around to fight and suppress the rebellions. In a series of wars, the more Zhou Bo’s merit gradually increased, the more his influence in the army improved. In the end, Zhou Bo took the position of Defender-in-chief and cultivated a force faithful to Liu family in the army. It was Zhou Bo who finally settled the ownership of the empire of the Liu family.
