Turning to his right, Jia Chong was bound to Sima’s camp. Seeing that the power of Cao wei was gone, Jia Chong did not hesitate to join Sima’s camp.At that time, the generals on the garrison side were holding a heavy army. Sima Zhao, because he had just assumed the power, had the intention of abrogate it, but he was afraid that he would be attacked by a whole crowd. Therefore, he sent Jia Chong as a messenger to comfort the four generals in the east, south, west and north, and to test their opinions.Perhaps there is sima Zhao endorsement, Jia Chong in the zheng East general Zhuge Sanzhi there no block expressed that they want to overthrow the rule of Wei Cao, “the world is willing to Zen, you think how”.Before jia Kui died of illness, he still kept in mind the great plan of attacking Wu and serving Cao Wei. However, his son decided to help Sima Zhao usurp the throne.Zhuge Dan harshly rebuked him and said: “You are not jia Yuzhou son, the world by wei’s grace, how can you want to lose the country”, jia Chong said speechless.Two, the rebellion to seize the position, gradually spoil from Zhuge Birthday back there, Jia Chong to Sima Zhao express its will be on the contrary, “Birthday in Yangzhou, famous, can get people.Look at its plan, for the reverse will also “, and suggested sima Zhao start early.Ganlu two years (257 years) Sima Zhao zheng Zhuge Christmas for sagong, Zhuge Christmas rebellion, had prepared sima Zhao soldiers forced Shou Chun, Jia Chong also suggested “deep ditch high basings to force the thief city”, and finally defeated Zhuge Christmas.In the fifth year of the Reign of Gan Lu (260), Cao MAO, the Emperor of Wei, was unwilling to be a puppet king, so he led some guards and servants in the palace to attack Sima Zhao. Jia Chong, the central guard who controlled the forbidden army, had long been sima Zhao’s confidant, and led his soldiers to stop him.But he was not afraid to kill the red-eyed Cao MAO. When he defeated another wave of soldiers, Jia Chong attacked him directly and ordered the prince to kill Cao MAO by cheng Ji.Kingslayer but extermination felony, but Sima Zhao or jia Chong will protect down, Jia Chong therefore iron heart to follow Sima Zhao, together with the plan to support the puppet emperor Cao Huan, Jia Chong also Jin Yang township hou, leading the armies outside the city, Plus SAN Riding chang Shi.Zhong will destroy shu after the rebellion, Jia Chong received life to Hanzhong to resist the rebels, have not yet arrived at the place that the bell will have died, and then participate in confidential.Sima Zhao was seriously ill. Before his death, he pointed out to sima Yan that Jia Chong could serve as his successor. Therefore, After Sima Yan ascended the throne, Jia Chong’s position became more and more unshakable.After Sima Zhao came to power, Jia Chongqian was familiar with the criminal law and prison sentence, “Chong Ya long legal principles, known as the restoration of justice”.Although Jia chong offended all the officials loyal to wei in the matter of regicide, he won the unconditional trust of Sima Zhao, and this favor extended to Sima Yan.After Sima Yan declared himself emperor, Jia Chong was honored as the general of Cheqi, sanqi Changshi, shang Shu manchu, and was granted the title of Duke of Lu county. Later, due to his professional matching, the new law of Taishi formulated by Jia Chong was successfully implemented.

Jia Chong was worried all day long and asked for punishment, but Sima Yan did not accept it.After Jia chong died of illness, Qin Xiu thought that Jia Chong should be posthumously named as “famine”, but Sima Yan refused to do so, and renamed as “wu”. He posthumously presented Tai Zai with huo Guang and Sima Fu’s rites and buried him.Jia Kui devoted his life to cao Wei, but his son Jia Chong was the messenger of Cao MAO’s death, and Jia Nanfeng, jia Chong’s son, was more like his father, who set off the chaos of eight Kings and five chaotic Hua.Jia Chong was talented in law and had a keen political vision. “He had the power to break away from Wei in military force, and he was also the most thorough one in Sima Zhao’s team, so he was fully trusted by Sima Zhao and Sima Yan.Neither Sima Yan nor Jia Chong expected that retribution would come so quickly.
