Hua Xin (157–231),courtesy nameZiyu, was a politician who lived in the late Eastern Han Dynasty. He was originally a minister in the Han imperial court, but later switched to serving under the warlord Sun Ce, and then later under the chancellor Cao Cao. He served as a minister over letters after the establishment of the state of Cao Wei in the Three Kingdoms period.
^ abcHua Xin's biography in Records of the Three Kingdoms stated that he died in the 5th year of the Taihe era (227-233) in Cao Rui's reign. (太和五年，歆薨，謚曰敬侯。) An annotation from the Wei Shu mentioned that he was 75 years old (by East Asian age reckoning) when he died. (魏書云：歆時年七十五。) By calculation, Hua Xin's birth year should be around 157.
