Etymology[edit]

During the Han Dynasty, the three highest civil posts, 三公 (sāngōng), were 太師太师 (tàishī), 太傅 and 太保 (tàibǎo). These were the three highest civil positions at the time (modern equivalent ~ White House Chief of Staff or prime minister), and were roughly equivalent in rank to the subsequent position of 宰相 (zǎixiàng, “Chancellor of China”).
