This position was established in the Qin Dynasty (221 - 206 BCE), and abandoned after the Jin Dynasty (265–420). A court advisor was responsible for issuing opinions to the emperor about matters of state. A court advisor received a stipend of 600-dan, and was often a civil officer who was nominated to his post because of his record of filial piety and incorruptibility. Court advisors served under the Minister of the Household.
