The Josutu League (Mongolian: ǰosutu-yin čiɣulɣan, ᠵᠣᠰᠤᠲᠤ ᠶᠢᠨ ᠴᠢᠭᠤᠯᠭᠠᠨ Chinese: 卓索圖盟; pinyin: Zhuōsuǒtú Méng) was the southernmost league of Inner Mongolia during Qing rule. It occupied land that forms part of the modern-day Chinese provinces of Liaoning, Hebei, and Chifeng in China's Inner Mongolia.

The name of Josutu was named after a place in the Tumed Right Banner, where Mongol princes regularly gathered together to administer inter-banner affairs.

Divisions[edit]

The Josutu League consisted of two ayimag or five banners.

In addition, the Khalkha Banner (Tangghud-Khaklha Banner) was split from the Tümed Left Banner in 1913 under the Republic of China.

Dissolution[edit]

The league was dissolved[when?] and its territory was distributed among the modern administrative regions:

There remain two Mongol autonomous counties in Liaoning.
