Notes Guo(1) Wei [22530] His original surname may have been Chang(2), which was changed to Guo(1) when his mother married Guo(1) Jian(3) [22529]. He become founder of the Later Zhou in 952, after having served as Shumi shi under the Later Han. He moved to Taiyuan when he was 3 years old, which may mean that the Chang(2) were Xingzhou, Yaoshan people and that the Guo(1) were Taiyuan people. For the time being, I am assuming that he was the natural, rather than adopted, son of Guo(1) Jian(3).
