Emperor Huan of Han China, ch. 漢桓帝, py. hn han d, wg. Han Huan-ti, (132-168) was an emperor of the Chinese Han Dynasty. He was a great-grandson of Emperor Zhang.

After Emperor Zhi was poisoned to death by the Liang Ji in 146 AD, 15 year old Emperor Huan was determined to eliminate the Liang family with the help of eunuchs. Huan succeeded in removing Liang Ji in 159 AD but this only sought to increase the influence of the eunuchs over all aspect of government. Corruption during this period have reached a boiling point and in 166 AD university students rose up in revolt aganist the government and called on Emperor Huan to eliminate all corrupt officials. Instead of listening, Huan ordered the arrest of all students involved.

Hou Hanshu (History of the Later Han) recounted that only one Roman convoy set out by emperor Marcus Aurelius reached the Chinese capital Luoyang in 166 and was greeted by Emperor Huan.

Emperor Huan died in 168 AD after reigning for 21 years. He was 36.
