Zhang Gong was a eunuch who probably sided with Zhang Rang. In the 180's he was made Regular Palace Attendant and enfeoffed as full marquis.


Historical sources don't share much information on the eunuch Zhang Gong. In the sixth month of 185 A.D., which is late July or early August, Zhang Gong and eleven other eunuchs were enfeoffed as full marquises for their good work against Zhang Jue and the Yellow Turbans.[1]

It is likely that Zhang Gong was part of Zhang Rang's influentious faction, because the other ten also were.


  • Zhang Gong's date of death is not mentioned in historical sources, but it's safe to say he died in the eunuch massacre in 189 A.D. along with all other eunuchs.
