The great general Han Xin, after five years of heroic battles on the side of Liu Bang, has finally defeated Xiang Yu, the powerful hegemon of Chu, thereby aiding in the rise to power of Liu Bang, who would become the Emperor Gaozu, founder of the Han dynasty. But the emperor was jealous of Han Xin popularity and charisma, and had him assassinated, under the pretext that he was plotting against the throne?
