During the period of the Three Kingdoms, the Two Jin, and Southern Dynasties, criminals who committed serious crimes had to go into Liuxi /banishment, especially those who planned to overthrow the government. Some were banished instead of receiving capital punishment, most of them were not the key conspirators in the crime. Besides, most of them were exiled to the Lingnan region like Jiaozhou, Guangzhou & Yuezhou; or provinces near the lower part of Yangtze River, like Yangzhou & Jiangzhou. Normally, the place of exile was related to the seriousness of the crime. The ones exiled to the Lingnan region committed more serious crimes than those who were banished to the Yangzhou areas. The treatment for the latter aimed at separating them from the power core instead of punishing them. Those who were banished were not allowed to return home throughout their lifetime, however the Emperors granted them amnesty from time to time. Originally, banishment was an alternative to death granted by the Emperor, but it evolved to become a for mal punishment between 468AD to 472AD during the reign of Emperor Ming of the Song Dynasty. That was a revolution in banishment. However, banishment was abandoned finally in the 11th year of Tai Tung era (545AD) during the reign of Emperor Wu of the Liang Dynasty and was never re –instituted again. This was another revolution in banishment. To conclude, banishment in the Three Kingdoms, the Two Jin, and Southern Dynasties only served legal & political purposes, instead of the economical and military function s when applied in the Han Dynasty.
