2 五帝本纪:
轩辕之时,神农氏世衰。诸侯相侵伐,暴虐百姓,而神农氏弗能征。于是轩辕乃习用干戈,以征不享,诸侯咸来宾从。而蚩尤最为暴,莫能伐。炎帝欲侵陵诸侯,诸侯咸归轩辕。轩辕乃修德振兵,治五气,艺五种,抚万民,度四方,教熊罴貔貅貙虎,以与炎帝战于阪泉之野。三战然后得其志。蚩尤作乱,不用帝命。于是黄帝乃徵师诸侯,与蚩尤战于涿鹿之野,遂禽杀蚩尤。而诸侯咸尊轩辕为天子,代神农氏,是为黄帝。天下有不顺者,黄帝从而征之,平者去之,披山通道,未尝宁居。
Annals of the Five...:
In the time of Xuanyuan, Shennong became enfeebled. The princes made raids on each other and harassed the people, but Shennong could not chastise them, so Xuanyuan exercised himself in the use of weapons of war, so as to be able to punish irregularities. The princes all came and did homage, but Chiyou, the fiercest of all, could not be subdued. Yandi (Flame emperor) wished to oppress the princes, so they turned to Xuanyuan, who practised virtue, marshalled his men, controlled the five elements, cultivated the five kinds of grain, pacified the nations, and went over all parts of his country. Training black bears, grizzly bears, foxes, panthers, lynxes, and tigers, he, with their aid, fought with 'Flame emperor' in the desert of Banquan, and, after three battles, realised his wishes. Chiyou was a rebel, who did not obey the Emperor's command, so Huangdi, levying an army of the princes, fought against Chiyou, captured, and slew him in the desert of Zhuolu. The princes all agreed that Xuanyuan should be the Emperor in place of Shennong, under the title Huangdi. Those in the empire who would not submit, Huangdi pursued and chastised, and when they were subdued he left them. He made cuttings in hills, opened roads, and was never at rest.
