This essay investigates the life stories of two generations of Prince Changyi, reveals Huo Guang's psychological dilemma while he was going to dethrone Emperor Liu He and re-examine Huo Guang's statesmanship. In spite of the supreme power Huo Guang once had, his clan also suffered disaster after his death, which exerted a profound influence on national fate and psychology of literati in the early Han Dynasty. Deposing Prince Changyi marked a turning point of the history of early Han Dynasty, which can never be neglected.
