Gongsun Fan
Traditional Chinese 公孫範
Simplified Chinese 公孙范

Gongsun Fan was an official during the late Han Dynasty period of Chinese history.

As a result of the fallouts that followed the dissolution of the coalition against Dong Zhuo, Gongsun Zan used the death of Gongsun Yue, another relative of his, as pretext to wage war on Yuan Shao. At the time, Gongsun Zan led the strongest army with the most ferocious reputation in northern China. Concerned, Yuan Shao handed over the Bohai's Grand Administrator seal to Gongsun Fan as a gesture of reconciliation. Gongsun Fan promptly took the commandery's army and joined up with Gongsun Zan.
