Huangfu Song (died 195), courtesy name Yizhen, was a military general who lived in the Eastern Han dynasty. He is best known for helping to suppress the Yellow Turban Rebellion and Liang Province Rebellion, he was one of three imperial commanders when the Yellow Turban Rebellion broke out, along with Zhu Jun and Lu Zhi. He was known to be a modest and generous person, he gave most of his credit in suppressing the rebellion to Zhu Jun and pleaded for Lu Zhi to be pardoned when the latter is wrongly accused of a crime he did not commit. Huangfu Song retired after the rebellion ended; however after the death of Dong Zhuo, he was called back to the court and appointed Grand Commandant – a post he held until his death in 195.

In Romance of the Three Kingdoms[edit]

In the 14th-century historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Huangfu Song was involved in Wang Yun's plot in getting rid of Dong Zhuo, and led the imperial forces to capture Dong Zhuo's family members and remnants in the capital.[1]
