Battles in Hangu Pass (600 - 750 AD) ?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for information on any battles that may have been fought in or near Hangu Pass, in the timespan of approximately 600 - 750 AD. I'm guessing possibly the battles between the Sui and the Turks, or perhaps the various battles during the rise of the T'ang. But does anyone know if any of these were in/near the Hangu Pass?

Thanks in advance! :D

There were no battles fought in or near Hangu Pass from 600-750AD. I could be wrong, but I am quite sure that no battles took place in this Pass during that time period.

Li Yuan, the first emperor of the Tang, fought against the Turks at Yanmenguan Pass instead of Hangu Pass when Sui was collapsing.
