High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Wang Gui ( ) (571-639),
courtesy name Shujie ( ), formally Duke Yi of Yongning ( ), was a
chancellor during the reign of Emperor Taizong of Tang (Li Shimin).
He had previously served Li Shimin's older brother Li Jiancheng the
Crown Prince, with whom Li Shimin was locked in an intense rivalry
during the reign of their father Emperor Gaozu, but after Li Shimin
killed Li Jiancheng and then took the throne, he knew that Wang was
faithful to Li Jiancheng and was capable, and therefore retained
him, eventually making him chancellor. Wang was known for his
honest and blunt criticism of the emperor, and for that was honored
by Emperor Taizong, who appreciated such criticism.
