    In History

    Deng Ai's talents were recognized by Sima Yi, who granted him higher positions. Deng Ai defended successfully against Jiang Wei's repeated military campaigns. In the year 263, Deng Ai invaded Shu along with Zhong Hui. Their progress was stopped by Jiang Wei near Hanzhong. Deng Ai then proposed to Zhong Hui that they go around Jiang Wei and strike at Shu's capital, but Zhong Hui did not accept his plan.

    Ever determined, Deng Ai continued with his plan without Zhong Hui. His forces broke into Chengdu, the capital of Shu, and its emperor, Liu Shan, surrendered.

    Jiang Wei tried to revive the fallen kingdom and rebelled against Wei alongside Zhong Hui. They had Wei Guan capture Deng Ai and his son, Deng Zhong. After their rebellion failed, Wei soldiers tried to rescue Deng Ai but he and his son were executed by Wei Guan before they could get to him.
