Lord Qu Yuan was a famous poet and politician of the Chu State during the Warring States Period. He devised great strategies for his king in order to defeat the Qin State, the most powerful state at the time.
However his wisdom was envied by other nobles who conspired to alienate him from the king of Chu. In the year 229BC, the Qin conquered 8 Chu cities before inexplicably proposing a peace treaty to the Chu ruler.
Lord Qu Yuan recognized this as another devious Qin plot and risked his life to convince the King of Chu to not attend the meeting. The King however, not only ignored Qu Yuan's advice, but also exiled him from Chu.
The cunning Qin imprisoned the King of Chu at the meeting. Regretting his foolish actions towards Qu Yuan which had sealed the fate of his country, the King of Chu died in grief. The Qin then proceeded to invade and conquered the Chu Capital.
When the exiled Lord Qu Yuan heard of the death of the king and the fallen of Chu Capital, in great grief, he sighed to the heavens and committed suicide by jumping into the Ruo river.
The country folk, who sympathized with Lord Qu Yuan quickly rowed their boats out to save him, but failed. So they decided to throw wrapped rice and other foods into the Ruo river so that the fish would eat these and leave Lord Qu Yuan's body unharmed.
