Three great kings
There are various opinions about the three great kings, but 5 following opinions are well known.
- I include these three great kings in context to establish the title called the emperor in Emperor, 地皇, 泰皇 (it is said with the emperor) - in front of Han, Cima Qian "Historical Memoirs" 秦始皇本紀 and am informed it when I did in combination "皇" and "emperor" of 泰皇 with the emperor. But I am not gathered up in the word "three great kings" here. I do it with 泰皇 = emperor in 司馬貞 "史記索隠" of Tang who is an explanatory note and do the Emperor, 地皇, an emperor when 泰皇 was as the three great kings first. I assume the three great kings 伏羲, woman 媧, Shinno in the three great kings biography of an emperor (it is said with supplementary three great kings biography of an emperor or supplementary Historical Memoirs) of "Historical Memoirs" that 司馬貞 made up for, but write the opinion called the Emperor, 地皇, the emperor in parallel.
- 伏羲, Shinno, woman 媧- "春秋緯運斗枢" (go down in "authority of manners and customs" 皇覇篇). The 司馬貞補 "Historical Memoirs" three great kings biography of an emperor of Tang succeeds to this, too.
- Person from 伏羲, Shinno, invasion-warning facilities - "礼緯含文嘉" (go down in "authority of manners and customs" 皇覇篇)
- It is Han, group obstinate "authority of tiger-shape guardian god of the west" after 伏羲, Shinno, god of fire -
- 伏羲, Shinno ・Huang Ti - 西晋・Hitsu Koho『Emperor century』
It is abstract existence to come from the Chinese word order indicator everything in the universe called the Emperor, 地皇, the emperor that appear, but the culture hero who brought civilization to the human later links the name first. These are described as God who did the figure of the half beast half-god by mystical 讖緯思想 which bloomed from previous Han end. In addition, it is described as existence to precede Huang Ti, 堯, 舜 as the "lap saint who easy", brought a copula lower biography civilization using 卦 about 伏羲 and Shinno early, but enter the three great kings in this, and, as for what it came to immobilize to put the three great kings before the legendary five emperors as a historic emperor, it is thought with a thing after Susumu Wei.
Legendary five emperors
Even if the contents of the and various story are accompanied to show it to a lower table whom you do with the legendary five emperors having, there is various antilogy. Is Cima Qian who put the legendary five emperors within a category of the history in "Historical Memoirs" "legendary five emperors biography of an emperor" for the time being, but "the Huang Ti legend does not think with the historical fact, but there is the folk climate where is common only to the place with the Huang Ti legend, and cannot deny what some historical facts are lost in;, thus, put declining in what record in these saying find value".

Origin of the title called the emperor
After conquering other six countries, and having unified China, in B.C. 221, Shi Huangdi (at first King Hata) 嬴 政 of Hata let 王綰, Li Ssu and others chief vassals consult a title above the title of the monarch called previous "King". Chief vassals recommended it to use the title of "秦皇" which was the top among the three great kings saying that I transcended the ancient legendary five emperors, but I coined a word, and oneself used the new title which a thought to be a new person that was holier than this Three Emperors and the Five Saints said to with "the emperor" who put 皇 and emperors together for 嬴 政 as a name for oneself ("Historical Memoirs").
After that the Chinese ruler will give emperor.
