Tai Geng

Tai Geng (Chinese: 太庚, born Zi Bian, Chinese: 子辨) was a shang dynasty King of China.

In the Records of the Grand Historian he was listed by Sima Qian as the sixth Shang king, succeeding his older brother Xiao Xin (Chinese: 小辛). He was enthroned with Bo (Chinese: 亳) as his capital. He ruled for 25 years (although the Bamboo Annals claim 5 years), was given the posthumous name Tai Geng and was succeeded by his son Xiao Jia (Chinese: 小甲).

Oracle script inscriptions on bones unearthed at Yinxu alternatively record that he was the fifth Shang king succeeding his uncle Bu Bing (Chinese: 卜丙), given the posthumous name Da Geng (Chinese: 大庚) and succeeded by his brother Xiao Jia.
