In China, people are confident that Kuan Kung (also known as Kuan Ti) was a real-life eminent military commander that lived in ancient China.
This commander was so revered for his heroic feats that after his death, the Chinese started to believe religiously in his spiritual protection and patronage. In the 12th century, Kuan received the title of Duke and then Prince, and in the 16th century, he received a posthumous title of Emperor and God.
These days, the Emperor Kuan is still considered to be one of the main deities of China -he is the defender of the country, the patron saint of crafts (including trade), the god of abundance and literature, the god of war, as well as the patron saint of the police, Chinese mafia and business people.
