Etymology[edit]

During the Han Dynasty, the three highest civil posts, 三公 (sāngōng), were 太師太师 (tàishī), 太傅 (tàifù) 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”).
