Sima-Guang 司馬光 is a government officer in the Northern Song 北宋 dynasty and a famous historian. He compiled Chinese history "Zizhitongjian 資治通鑑" and he wrote the book of a historical investigation. "Zizhitongjian-Kaoyi 資治通鑑考異" at the same time. This paper analyzed "Zizhitongjian-Kaoyi" in order to see how the history of Wuhu-Shiliuguo 五胡十六国 period in "Zizhitongjian" was compiled. Sima-Guang made reference to several books on the history of Wuhu-Shiliuguo period, especially "Shiliuguo-Chunqiu 十六国春秋." "Shiliuguo-Chunqiu" was 102 volumes, when it was compiled by Cui-Hong 崔鴻 in the Northern Wei 北魏 period. As time passed, it was scattered and lost. But it still remained in the Northern Song period. I looked through "Zizhitongjian-Kaoyi" and I could find "Shiliuguo-Chunqiu" an incomplete book."Shiliuguo-Chunqiu" that Sima-Guang could use, was a little over 20 volumes, when he compiled "Zizhitongjian."
