Xiao Jia

Xiao Jia (Chinese: 小甲, born Zi Gao, Chinese: 子高) was a shang dynasty King of China.

In the Records of the Grand Historian he was listed by Sima Qian as the seventh Shang king, succeeding his brother Tai Geng (Chinese: 太庚). He was enthroned in the year of Dingsi (Chinese: 丁巳) with Bo (Chinese: 亳) as his capital. He ruled for 17 years, was given the posthumous name Xiao Jia and was succeeded by brother Yong Ji (Chinese: 雍己).

Oracle script inscriptions on bones unearthed at Yinxu alternatively record that he was the sixth Shang king succeeding his brother Da Geng (Chinese: 大庚), given the posthumous name Xiao Jia (Chinese: 小甲) and succeeded by his nephew Da Wu (Chinese: 大戊).
