Daughter of Sun Jian and sister of Sun Ce and Sun Quan.
To improve diplomatic relationships with Liu Bei, Sun Quan arranged to marry Sun Shangxiang to Liu Bei.
Often depicted as a tomboy, Sun Shangxiang was said to have surrounded herself with armed ladies-in-waiting. Liu Bei was said to be wary of her bold personality.
After Liu Bei entered Shu, he effectively divorced Sun Shangxiang. She returned to Wu.
