Rui (Chinese: 芮国/芮國, aka Jui) was a Chinese vassal state during the Zhou Dynasty (1046–256 BCE). The non-legendary status of the Rui state is known because it is mentioned in the Bamboo Annals.
In 703 BC, the rulers of the five states of Western Guo (西虢國),[a] Rui (芮國), Xun (荀國) and Jia (賈國), including the State of Liang, suppressed Duke Wu of Quwo using armed force.
In 641 BC, the State of Qin easily conquered the Rui state along with the State of Liang.
