King Huan of Zhou (Chinese: 周桓王; pinyin: Zhōu Húan Wáng; Wade–Giles: Chou Huan Wang; died 697 BC) was the fourteenth king of the Chinese Zhou Dynasty and the second of the Eastern Zhou Dynasty (770-256 BC).
His given name was Lín.
Son and successor of Huan was King Zhuang of Zhou.
In 707 BC, the royal forces were defeated in the Battle of Xuge (𦈡葛之战) by Duke Zhuang of Zheng (r.743-701). The king himself was wounded by an arrow in the shoulder, and the defeat destroyed the prestige of the Zhou house.
