Prince Yi of the Blood (zh: 怡親王) was the title of peerage first given to Yinxiang, the 13th son of the Kangxi Emperor of China, then subsequently inherited by his descendants. It was created by Yinxiang's brother the Yongzheng Emperor. After a power struggle won by Empress Dowager Cixi, Zaiyuan, Sixth Prince Yi was put to death and the title was abolished. The title was created again for the fifth-generation descendant of Hongjiao, the fifth son of Yinxiang, who passed it down two generations until the demise of the Qing Dynasty.

The title was inherited for seven generations:
