Romance of the Three KingdomsEdit

Lady Zou (erroneously called Lady Zhou in several translations) was married to Dong Zhuo's officer Zhang Ji who perished from an arrow wound during a battle against Liu Biao. When Cao Cao heard of her beauty from Cao Anmin, he had Lady Zou brought before him and was delighted by what he saw. She agreed to become his concubine and remained beside him during his stay, with Dian Wei protecting her lodging.

Their dalliance, however, would have tremendous consequences as Zhang Xiu deemed it an insult to his family's name, causing him to set up an ambush at Wancheng. Cao Cao barely escaped with his life, though the attack resulted in the deaths of Cao Ang, Cao Anmin, and Dian Wei.
