A New Research on the "Water Army" in the Western Xia Dynasty
Pages: 10-13
Year: Issue:  3
Journal: Journal of History and Chorography

Keyword:  西夏水军津渡官渡船主;
Abstract: 此前学界认为西夏沿河设有一定规模的水军,所据材料来自三处宋人记载。本文通过对此三则史料的重新考证,并结合西夏官方法典《天盛律令》,考证出宋人言称的"水军"事实上只是渡河作战的西夏步骑兵和主管河渡事务的津渡官,西夏并未形成有正规军事编制的水军。由于西夏的津渡官配备战具,担负一定的警卫布防职能,故而宋人以"水贼"蔑称,致使今人误认为是西夏"水军"。
