Hua Mulan (Chinese: 花木蘭) is a legendary warrior from China. The stories about her are set during various times in China's history. She was first written about in a ballad called the Ballad of Mulan (Chinese: 木蘭辭). In the ballad, Hua Mulan takes her father's place in the army. She practiced martial arts such as kung fu, and was skilled with a sword. She fought for twelve years and became famous, but she refused any reward.

Hua Mulan is considered a legend, rather than a historical person.[1]
