Fu Xi or Fu Hsi of the San Huang Dynasty, was the first of the mythical Three Sovereigns of ancient China. He is a culture hero reputed to be the inventor of writing, fishing, and trapping.

The Yi Jing (or Zhou Yi; Wade-Giles I Ching) is attributed to his reading of the He Map, also known as The Yellow River Map. According to tradition Fu Xi had the arrangement of the trigrams of the Yi Jing revealed to him supernaturally. This arrangement precedes the compilation of the Yi Jing during the Zhou dynasty. Fu Xi is said to have discovered the arrangement in markings on the back of a mythical dragon-horse (sometimes said to be a turtle) that emerged from the river Luo. This discovery is also said to have been the origin of calligraphy.
