Xiang Ji (232–202 BCE), courtesy name Yu, better known as Xiang Yu, was a prominent warlord in the late Han dynasty. A noble of Xiaxiang (下相; present-day Suqian, Jiangsu), Xiang Yu was granted the title of "Duke of Lu" (魯公) by King Huai II of the insurgent Chu state in 208 BCE. The following year, he led the rebel forces to victory at the Battle of Julu against the Qin armies led by Zhang Han. After the fall of the Qin dynasty, Xiang Yu proclaimed himself "Overlord of Western Chu" and ruled a vast area of land covering parts of present-day Shanxi, Henan, Hubei, Hunan and Jiangsu, with Pengcheng (present-day Xuzhou, Jiangsu) as his capital. He engaged Liu Bang, the founding emperor of the Han dynasty, in a long struggle for power, known as the Chu–Han Contention, which concluded with his eventual defeat at the Battle of Gaixia. He committed suicide at the bank of the Wu River.
