Born in Hefei, Anhui, Duan gained the post of Heilongjiang governor in the late Qing dynasty and between 1912-13 he was governor of Chahar, and the military governor of Hubei between 1914–15, as well as Military and Civil governor of Fengtian in 1915-16.
A staunch supporter of Yuan Shikai, he was nicknamed the "Adopted Prince" and when Duan Qirui, a fellow Hefei native took the Beijing government, Duan was made a Minister of War in 1917, however with Duan Qirui's defeat by 1920, Duan Zhigui fled to the Japanese embassy. He was remitted in 1922 and lived in Tianjin until his death there in 1925.
