This is a general introduction of Confucius in brief, which is based on the records of Shiji, or The Records of the Grand Historian. Confucius was born in Lu State of Spring and Autumn Period, and his forefather removed from Song State. The name-known ancestor of Confucius was Kong Fangshu(孔防叔), Kong Fangshu gave birth to Kong Boxia, and Kong Boxia gave birth to Shu Lianghe(叔梁纥) who was the father of Confucius. Confucius was the love child of Shu Lianghe and a lady from Yan Family(颜氏女). In the 22nd year of Lord Xianggong of Lu State, Confucius was born. Confucius was said to have a hill-like forehead, so Confucius was named Qiu(丘, Hill).
At the age of 47, Ji Huanzi(季桓子) dug a well and discovered a pot from the underground. There was a strange animal in it like a goat, and he asked Confucius what animal it was. Confucius said:”According to my understanding, it is the goat. I heard that Wang Liang (魍魉), Kui(夔) Monsters are from stone and woods, Wang Xiang and Dragon from water. Feng Yang (a kind of goat) is from underground.”
