Qingyuan Jiedushi

Qingyuan (清源) Jiedushi (節度使) was the official title of Chen Hong (陳洪), the military commissioner (jiedushi) of the Pinghai military prefecture (平海軍). Following the assassination of Wang Yanjun (王延鈞) by his brother Wang Yanhan (王延翰) in 933 and the subsequent proclamation by Wang Yanhan of himself as the emperor of Min (閩), Chen Hong reigned independent in Qingyuan (清源), with his capital at Quanzhou (泉州).

In 978, Qingyuan was conquered by the northern song dynasty as the last stages of their war of reunification, finally bringing all of South China under the control of the central government.
