One of the Five Emperors, the Yellow Emperor is said by tradition to have reigned from 2696 - 2598 B.C.
Among his other accomplishments, the Yellow Emperor has been credited with the invention of the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Nèijīng (内經, The Medical Canon of the Yellow Emperor), was supposedly composed in collaboration with his physician Qí Bó (岐伯). However, modern historiographers generally consider it to have been compiled from ancient sources by a scholar living between the Zhou and Han dynasties, more than 2000 years later.
