This article is about the eastern khan. For the western khan with the same title, see Heshana Khan.

Chuluo Khagan (simplified Chinese: 处罗; traditional Chinese: 處羅; pinyin: Chùluo Kěhàn, Middle Chinese: (Guangyun) [tɕʰi̯o˥lɑ˩ kʰɑ˥ɣɑn˩˥], died 620) was the khagan of the Eastern Turkic Khaganate, and second son of Qimin, former title: Ilteber Shad (Chinese: 俟利弗設; pinyin: sìlìfú shè). He succeeded his elder brother Shibi and ruled for 18 months. He married the Sui dynasty's Princess Yicheng (義成公主) in heqin, the former wife of Qimin in levirate marriage.

Chuluo is said to have died from illness, possibly poisoned by the Minister of Ceremonies (Chinese: 太常卿; pinyin: tàichángqīng) Zheng Yuanshu (鄭元璹).[1]
