Everyone has heard of Confucius, everyone knows he's Chinese, everyone knows he's ancient, and everyone knows he's a philosopher, but that's about the extent of things.

Even just reading that Wikipedia entry will enrich you, in some small way.

Confucius lived during the Zhou Dynasty (1046 - 256 BC), the longest of all China's dynasties.

He lived in Lu State (1042 - 249 BC), whose existence almost exactly parallels that of the Zhou Dynasty - in today's world, it would be in Shandong Province:

Zou was a minor state (a state within Lu State), and *might* be represented on this map by Zhou, but I'm not sure about that - Zou is where Confucius was born.
