The Viceroy of Three Northeast Provinces (simplified Chinese: 东三省总督; traditional Chinese: 東三省總督), fully referred to in Chinese as the Governor-General of Three Northeast Provinces and Surrounding Areas Overseeing Military Generals of the Three Provinces, Director of Civil Affairs of Fengtian (Chinese: 總督東三省等處地方兼管三省將軍、奉天巡撫事), was the one of nine regional viceroys of the Qing dynasty in China. The Viceroy had jurisdiction over the three provinces of Fengtian (present-day Liaoning), Jilin and Heilongjiang in Northeast China (also known as Manchuria).
