Cao Anmin

Cao Anmin (died 197) was the nephew of the warlord Cao Cao, who lived during the late Han Dynasty period of Chinese history.

In 197, Cao Anmin followed Cao Cao on a campaign to conquer Jing Province (present day Hubei and Hunan). Zhang Xiu, a minor warlord who occupied Wancheng (present day Nanyang, Henan), surrendered to Cao Cao. Cao Cao then courted the widow of Zhang Xiu's late uncle, which angered Zhang Xiu deeply. When Cao Cao learnt of this, he secretly plotted to murder Zhang Xiu. However, the plan leaked out and Zhang Xiu took the initiative to attack Cao Cao's camp, starting the Battle of Wancheng.

Caught by surprise, Cao Cao's troops were greatly outnumbered. Trapped, Cao Anmin died protecting Cao Cao, along with Cao Ang and Dian Wei.
