He was the son of Jiăo Jí (蟜極/蟜极), the grandson of Shăohào (少昊) and the great grandson of Huáng-dì (黃帝/黄帝), the Yellow Emperor. According to speculative dates (from after 100 BCE, calculated by Liu Xin) he is supposed to have ruled from c. 2436 BCE – c. 2366 BCE, but other dates are also mentioned. Dì Kù established schools.
