|Real name:||Xiahou Xuan|
Xiahou Xuan was a Wei general.
Xiahou Xuan was related to Xiahou Yuan, the great archer, and was thus related Cao Cao and his grandnephew, the regent of Wei Cao Shuang. In AD 243, he commanded a part of the Wei invasion force when Cao Shuang attacked Shu, hoping to conquer it. But Cao Shuang was careless in preparing battle formations and suffered a disastrous loss. Xiahou Xuan remained loyal to Wei following the death of Cao Shuang, but then noticed how Sima Shi was usurping Emperor Cao Fang's power. He wanted a more mature ruler, Cao Mao, on the throne, so he rebelled, but was killed.
