Changshi was one of the last effective khans (r. 1335-1338 ) of the Chagatai Khanate. His father was prince Ebugen who was the son of Duwa, the Chagatai Khan.

Western sources claimed that he was anti-muslim and quite tolerant toward Christians. Before his succession, Changshi sent the Yuan Great Khan Tugh Temur 170 Russian prisoners. However, he was probably Nestorian. He was given a pecuniary reward from the court of yuan dynasty. He overthrew muslim princes from the power of the ulus in 1334–1335. But he was murdered by his family in 1338 after a short period of his reign.
